... you've got a body shop whereby the owner actually does a a large amount of the repair himself, that's a great sign, because he acually has his own hand in the job and that he will know what's going on. This particular body shop owner proceeded to say of the fact that the major cost factor for customers relates to the fee for labor. The hourly cost is an important variable which can really accumulate fast. Body shops use reference guides ...
... After a short boat ride to Praslin our taxi was waiting to take us to the airport. Since we were early, Robert offered to bring us to the end of the island before taking us to the airport. We also picked up his wife and dropped her off in that area. He took his time and is was better to be in his air conditioned car instead of at the ...
After going back to Anse Lazio for our morning shots we continued our journey back south on the eastern coast. Our first stop was Anse la Blague, then up hill to a Relais & Chateaux which overlooked Anse Marie-Louise. The place was absolutely stunning and I took many pictures of this site. Then we headed to the southern most part of the island and took a few pictures of Anse Consolation and now on the western ...
Today it was raining cats and dogs and so we cancelled our scuba diving excursion. We opted for a car rental after lunch just so that we get out and see some other areas on the island. The first stop we did was the jetty but it was closed till 2:15 and so off we went. We headed for the southern part of the island to visit the Valle de Mai Forest. It is a Unesco heritage site, famous for the coco de mer and several types of ...
The perfect time to rest, read and relax, we have had rain showers for the past few days with thunder storms at night. We still were able to go swimming (at the hotel pool) and went for a four kilometre walk and found a supermarket. We stocked up on snacks, ramen soups for light meals, a few beers and ginger ales to make a panache. I was never really crazy about beer but ...

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.
