Set on a rocky outcrop, the hotel is set in private gardens just 15 minutes from the capital Victoria on Mahe Island. A highlight of any stay here are the stunning sunsets that you may witness. The resort has a rich history, including being a favourite haunt of James Bond creator - Ian Fleming; indeed, this was the inspiration behind 'For Your Eyes Only'.
One of Seychelles' original 5* hotels, the Hilton Northolme has undergone an extensive makeover in 2015, including the addition of 16 spacious pool villas. The resort has, however, kept its old-world Seychellois charm, with much use of local wood in the construction of its rooms. 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 their spacious balconies. All villas offer an excellent degree of privacy.
The resort's new Grand Oceanview Pool Villas have large private infinity plunge pools (some of the largest in Seychelles) with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. 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. Book one of these villas for a minimum 5-night stay and receive complimentary bottle of sparkling wine, free 15 minute 'welcome massage', daily 'sweet' delight and romantic turndown service.
There is also an exquisite 2-bedroom Presidential Villa, measuring some 360m² and decorated with original artwork and elegant furnishings; its private infinity pool is the largest private in-villa pool on Mahe island at 110m².
Dining is a highlight of any stay at Hilton Northolme, including champagne breakfasts and themed Creole dinners with live show cooking. The fine-dining 'Les Cocotiers' restaurant specialises in international cuisine, while the 'Oceanview Bar & Restaurant' is set on a deck overlooking the ocean and open for lunch and dinner. This is the perfect place to sip a tropical cocktail or two while drinking in the stunning sunsets.
There is only a small beach at Hilton Northolme, but the lovely infinity swimming pool compensates somewhat; however, snorkelling is usually very good here. The resort's spa has a magical setting - perched on stilts above the ocean and offers an excellent choice of treatments and therapies.
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. Perfect for excursions around Mahé, it is also ideal for spending a few days as part of a Seychelles island-hopping holiday. The hotel does not accept children under 13 years old.
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.
Read what our previous clients thought of Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort and Spa
Before finalising, I had two options- the Hilton northolme and the Banyan tree.
I am so glad I chose Hilton.
Firstly, the service, the location and the view from our hotel-STUNNING!!
Secondly, I visited the beach adjacent to Banyan tree. Iâ??m glad I chose not to opt for this hotel as it is very secluded.
The staff at Hilton were really cooperative. There is nothing to complain about.
And it is very near…
Stunning location. Lovely bar, not too posh, quite relaxed with stunning views. The whole place was relaxed 5 star. Breakfast overlooking the ocean, cute little cove/beach to swim from and snorkel. Fabulous rooms, very large. Villa pool was a good size. Definitley go back!
