... on the beach but I will highlight two things that I think are worthy to note:
a) We had a chance to do a day trip to Curiose Island where large 200 kg land tortoises are located. There are about 300 located on this tiny island and they are huge and friendly. I would say that you should see the photos, but that was the day that our underwater camera failed us and we lost our ability to take pictures. Hence, no photos of ...
... dock waiting for the sun to appear watching mullet being harassed by underwater predators in the still waters of the harbour. Very Zen it was - cept for the mullet that is.

... part of the island with great views! The island is all granite so its essentially rock climbing. Like all islands there was great history also once off the resort -- old overgrown graves, houses, etc.
Great stop to the trip - and an official scuba certification good anywhere in the world for life! Here we come Great Barrier Reef!
Off to Bali (Indonesia) next, via Abu Dhabi and Kuala Lumpur - stay tuned!
Last note on the Seychelles - continued from the previous entry...
Unsurprisingly, the good sheik is regarded by many as the effective President of the Seychelles. His visage graces the buildings he has financed and the UAE flag, in company with the flag of the Seychelles, decorates their entrances and otherwise empty wall spaces. My training sessions and seminar were convened in a new Coastguard auditorium provided by His Goodness and after my three years ...
The 82nd day saw us docked in Victoria on the island of Mahe in the Seychelles with a beautiful view of the city and surrounding islands. We had a tour of the island and would be gone all day to visit beautiful beaches, a botanic garden, a historic mission lodge, to see how the slaves lived, and a tea plantation.
At the garden we saw the Coco-de-Mer palms native to this area. These trees have the largest seeds of any tree on earth. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa Glacis
J'ai séjourné dans cet hôtel du 3 au 17 mai 2007, et je peux juste vous dire que c'est l'endroit où aller sur cette planète.
Northolme is paradise! The views from all directions are spectacular, and successions of guests stopped to stare in awe as they checked in. The rooms are beautiful - each couple has a large villa with a balcony overlooking the sea, (and a massive bathroom with jacuzzi and similar views). And the staff combine incredible efficiency with genuine friendliness and passion for what they are doing. It's also great for snorkeling, and just 5min from Beau Vallon if one wants to go out in the evening, dive or use a sandy beach.
The ultimate location for a romantic break or honeymoon, and the best hotel experience we've ever had by far.
C'è molto da dire su questo hotel. Splendido, eccellente, straordinario, incredibile, ecc.
Ci siamo sentiti benissimo! Le camere (in realtà sono ville) sono grandi, hanno tutte una jacuzzi, un dvd player, una tv al plasma, un enorme balcone, dei panorami splendidi...tutto ciò che si potrebbe sognare.
Provate la spa, e fate snorkelling (iniziate dalla spiaggia vicino al bar), e provate il banana flambee o i divertimenti dell'ora del tè, oppure il caiac.
Questo è l'hotel più bello in cui sia mai stato finora.
Lots to say about this hotel. Briliant, genious, extraordinar, incredible, etc.
We felt great! The rooms (actually villas) are big, own jacuzzi, dvd player, plasma screen, huge balcony, fantastic views... all you could wish for.
Try the spa, snorkel arround (starting from the beach near the bar), try the banana flambee or afternoon-tea events, try the caiacs.
This is by far the best hotel I have ever been to.
Fantastic! A fabulous hotel experience!
My husband and I stayed two short nights at the Northolme in February 2007. Our experience was absolutely amazing. We thought the staff was fantastic and the rooms were incredibly roomy, with large decks overlooking Silhouette Island. The beach at the hotel is fairly small and rocky but the views more than make up for the lack of beach.
There is a small shop within walking distance (turn left out of the hotel drive) and the Boat House and Baobob Pizza are also a nice walk from the hotel.
We spent 15 nights in the Seychelles and absolutely fell in love with the people and the beautiful islands that make up this country. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone.
Excellent hotel in the paradise
We just came back from a 9-day trip to Seychelles - really a paradise. We stayed in Hilton. The hotel was wonderful; the service as well. We stayed in a Hillside villa and it was spacious and very well equipped. The view over the Beauvalon Bay was wonderful. The Nespreso set for coffee and the variety of 6 different types of coffee provides for a real style and pleasure after the beach. The staff was very well trained and helpful in organising our stay and excursions. Both restaurants, especially Cocotier, are of very high quality - the best in the region despite the opinion of all tourist guides that we consulted.
We spent 6 nights at this wonderful place. Our Oceanview Villa (106 )was amazing - spacious with great bathroom , lovely furniture and spectular view of Indian Ocean.
The Northolme is a few minutes away from Beau Vallon Beach and you can see Beau Vallon Beach from the hotel. There are only 30+ villas in the hotel and you generally don't see too many people at the hotel since there are many honeymooners and people are usually out on daytrips island hopping.
Ideal place to include in an island hopping trip or as a one week destination. All attractions a minimum 80 rupee one way (£10) taxi ride.
We have just stayed at the Northolme Hotel for a wonderful week. We stayed in a beachside villa with an uninterrupted view across Beau Vallon Bay and the outlying islands. It was a little more expensive then the Hillside Villas but worth every cent. The beaches surrounding the Hotel are rocky and only 1 is suitable for swimming but with Beau Vallon beach a cheerful 10 min walk (watch for uncoming buses and stray but happy dogs)away it did not worry us. The pool is also lovely but a little bit public so we tended to stay on our own little beach in front of the Villa.
