Hilton expands into Seychelles

Hilton International is signing an agreement with Crowne Company to manage the Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa. The 5-star, 40 villa resort on the island of Mahé is now open and operating as a Hilton Worldwide Resort.

Wolfgang Neumann, President, Hilton International, Europe & Africa commented; “We are very proud to expand our portfolio and take the Hilton brand name to our first Worldwide Resort in the Seychelles.”

The resort combines idyllic barefoot luxury with refined relaxation and offers first-class facilities, quality service, fine dining and an array of activities.

40 private villas - 14 deluxe oceanfront and 26 hillside villas - are nestled amidst the small beach coves of Beauvallon Bay and on the hillside.  Elevated on stilts with spectacular ocean views, the villas blend Seychellois architecture and contemporary décor with natural materials and fabrics from the Far East.  The ultimate in luxury, they are equipped with king sized poster beds, rainfall showers, whirlpool bathtubs, LCD flat screen TVs, CD and DVD players and extensive balconies.

The resort has two restaurants and the Ocean View Bar.


The resort also has a luxurious spa.  Located on a giant granite boulder with spectacular views over the Indian Ocean, the Duniye Spa is the perfect place to soothe the body, stimulate the mind and arouse the senses.  The spa provides a complete repertoire of health, beauty and wellness services, including Ayurvedic treatments, and has a steam room, relaxation lounge and yoga pavilion.

The resort has a fully equipped water sports centre, snorkelling boat trips, deep sea fishing excursions and a Scuba diving centre with full PADI instructional programmes and guided dives.  Other leisure facilities include the beautiful freeform “infinity” swimming pool, a library, fitness centre, games room and TV lounge.  Guests can even escape on a Robinson Crusoe island picnic or take a sightseeing tour of the surrounding islands by plane.
