Hilton opens 2nd property in Seychelles

SILHOUETTE ISLAND, SEYCHELLES The 111-villa Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa, operated under a management agreement with Silhouette Island Resort Ltd., has opened as the second Hilton Hotels & Resorts property in the Seychelles.

Located on Silhouette Island, the third largest in the Seychelles, it is the only resort on the private island, which is a 40-minute ferry ride from the main island of Mahé. Complete with its own private beach, Hilton Seychelles Labriz features 30 garden villas with private terraces, 63 beachfront villas that open onto white sandy beaches, 17 deluxe villas with private pools and one presidential suite with a private lounge and swimming pool. The property has five restaurants.

The resort’s Aquum Spa allows guests to unwind in treatment rooms built on stilts amid the rocks emerging from the island jungle. Resort facilities include a water sports center featuring scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing, a swimming pool, tennis court, library lounge, island boutiques, a medical center and WiFi.

“Tourism in the Seychelles continues to grow, and with the addition of a second resort property in the Seychelles, we are able to offer our guests a choice of island getaways,” says Rudi Jagersbacher, area president of Hilton Worldwide in the Middle East and Africa.

Silhouette Island, once home to Seychellois fisherman and plantations, is now a nature reserve with a Grand Tortoise Sanctuary and the 740-m Mount Dauban.

Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa joins Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa, a resort comprised entirely of private villas on the island of Mahé.
