Set on a rocky outcrop, the hotel is set in private gardens just 15 minutes from the capital Victoria on Mahe Island. Highlights of any stay here are the stunning sunsets as well as the resort's spa, with it's excellent choice of treatments and therapies, and its lovely setting- perched on stilts above the ocean.
One of Seychelles' original 5* hotels, the boutique Hilton Northolme has undergone several makeovers over the years, including the addition of 16 stunning, spacious pool villas, but has kept its old-world Seychellois charm, with much use of local wood in the construction of its rooms. Particularly suited to couples as it does not accept children under 13 years old, dining is a highlight of a stay here. Perfect for excursions around Mahé, the Northolme is also ideal for spending a few days as part of a Seychelles island-hopping holiday.
All villas have king size beds and are set within the small tropical hillside gardens; some are built on stilts to ensure sea views from the spacious balconies; all offer an excellent degree of privacy. The hotel's Grand Oceanview Pool Villas and Signature Oceanfront Pool Villas have large private infinity plunge pools with spectacular Indian Ocean views. These villas, intricately built on the hillside between giant granite boulders, have modern interiors with a bright, fresh feel, combining natural, historic elements of traditional Seychellois colonial houses and ensuring that the unique essence of Northolme is preserved. Some also have whirlpool baths.
Hilton Northolme's exquisite 2-bedroom Presidential Villa measures some 360m² and is decorated with original artwork and elegant furnishings; its private infinity pool is the largest private in-villa pool on Mahe island at 110m².
Champagne breakfasts and themed Creole dinners with live show cooking take place in the hotel's main restaurant, 'Mahe'. The fine-dining 'Wave' restaurant specialises in international cuisine, while the 'Oceanview Bar' is set on a deck overlooking the ocean and open for lunch and dinner. There is also the lower deck Gin Bar - the perfect place to sip a Gn'T while drinking in some of the best sunset views in the Seychelles, as well as perhaps spotting the odd turtle or two swimming in the azure waters below. Although there is only a small beach at Hilton Northolme, the lovely infinity swimming pool compensates somewhat as do the pool villas; snorkelling, however, is usually very good here.
In a perfect setting, the 5* Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort is a lovely boutique hotel - ideal for couples, particularly honeymooners and those celebrating an anniversary. The resort has a rich history, including being a favourite haunt of James Bond creator - Ian Fleming; indeed, this was where he had the inspiration for 'For Your Eyes Only'.
Set in private gardens, it is just 15 minutes from the capital Victoria, or 30 minutes from the international airport.
Main infinity swimming pool, oceanfront spa, beauty salon, yoga pavilion, gym & library including pool table. Water sports include snorkelling and kayaks. Diving, fishing and island excursions can be arranged. Courtesy service to nearby Beau Vallon beach.

Review of Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort and Spa
An intimate property with plenty of activities in the Beau Vallon area of Seychelles.
Great accommodation and amenities. We had to check out early because they were fully booked so didn't get to experience much.
