Silhouette Island’s only resort, The Hilton Labriz

By Thomas Porter
Resort Manager, Hilton Labriz Resort and Spa

As the only resort on Silhouette Island, when you stay with us you’ll enjoy a private slice of the Seychelles – guests love the sense of exclusivity. The Hilton Labriz inhabits just three percent of Silhouette, the rest is a protected marine national park with unspoilt volcanic mountains and forests. There are endless beaches to explore, from castaway coves with big carved rocks to talcum-powder-sand bays. The beach in front of our resort is even visited by nesting sea turtles.

Silhouette Island was owned by the Dauban family from the 1600s to the 1800s (some of their relatives still live here today) and in 2013, we opened the Hilton. We’re an all-villa resort built in harmony with nature. So, if you look at Silhouette from out at sea, you won’t notice the resort at all, it just looks like a rugged, green island – it reminds me of Jurassic Park. Our villas are spread around the gardens, beachfront or up on the hillside, so you can step out directly into nature.

Take a jungle walk with one of our rangers, who’ll point out all the native flora and fauna on the way. A popular trek takes you to a hilltop viewpoint, then down to the valley where the Daupans cultivate palm trees and an area where Aldabra giant tortoises live. We’ve partnered with the Island Conservation Society on various projects including one to protect these endangered animals. We keep them safe from predators at the resort until they’re around 8-10 years old and weigh up to 25 kilos, then they’re released into the wild.

There’s something for everyone at the Hilton Labriz, whether you want adventure, relaxation or family fun. You can chill out around the pool or have a massage at our Eforea Spa, which is built into a huge granite cliff with jungle treatment rooms. We can also organise boat trips, snorkelling and PADI diving courses. Our dine-around concept is very popular, offering everything from wood-fired pizza to seafood on the beach or Japanese. Don’t miss a meal at an old Creole plantation house in the nearby village of La Passe. A local lady we call Mamma, who’s about 70, will cook you a traditional Creole meal.
