A favourite haunt of James Bond creator Ian Fleming, the upscale Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa is a secluded hideaway nestled among the hills and coves of Beau Vallon Bay on Mahé, just a minutes away from Seychelles International Airport. 

Surrounded by lush tropical gardens, crystal-clear azure waters and a hidden white sanded beach cove, this small boutique resort offers true intimacy and privacy from its 40 spacious, luxury wooden-clad villas on stilts.

Take in magnificent views of the Indian Ocean and Silhouette Island from the balcony of a hillside villa or an oceanfront villa or opt for the Ian Fleming suite and experience true indulgence in this luxurious villa, the original inspiration behind the author’s ‘For your Eyes Only’.

Need some TLC? Book yourself into the Duniye Spa with facial and body treatments and steam room to soothe all your aches and pains away. There’s also a stunning infinity pool and 24-hour fitness center with yoga pavilion.

There’s plenty to keep you busy at this luxury Seychelles resort. Set among the lagoons in Glacis, where hundreds of fish species swim, the luxury Seychelles hotel offers some of the island’s best snorkeling. Explore the azure waters at the nearby PADI dive center, or plan an excursion on a glass bottom boat. A complimentary shuttle is also available to Beau Vallon Beach, where you can try a range of activities including kayaking, windsurfing and speed boating.
