Set on a rocky outcrop, the hotel is set in private gardens and just 15 minutes from the capital Victoria. A highlight of any stay here is the stunning sunsets that you may witness.

One of Seychelles' original 5* hotels, the Hilton Northolme has undergone an extensive makeover in the last 2 years, including the addition of 16 brand new 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 opened in early 2016 and 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 is perched on stilts above the ocean and offers an excellent choice of treatments and therapies.
With its excellent setting, the 5* Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort is a lovely boutique hotel - ideal for couples, particularly honeymooners and those looking to celebrate an anniversary. The hotel is perfect for excursions around Mahé and ideal for spending a few days at as part of a Seychelles island-hopping holiday. The hotel does not accept children under 13 years old.
