This large resort has the enviable position of being the only resort on Silhouette Island, set against the backdrop of Mount Dauban on a white-sand beach flanked by granite boulders.
Due to its mountainous layout, Silhouette hasn’t been developed much and the only facilities for dining and recreation are offered by the Hilton, but fortunately there’s a wide range on offer at the resort.
The 111 villas are spread across the grounds or along the beachfront and seven dining options offer a variety of dining. There’s also a good choice of leisure activities as well as opportunities to explore the island.

The Hilton has 111 spacious villas, set in either the gardens or just steps from the beach, some with private pools.
All the villas have a modern design and come with all the facilities you would expect from an international hotel including air conditioning, DVD player, Wi-Fi, mini-bar, tea and coffee facilities, and en-suite bathrooms with double basins and both indoor and outdoor showers.
Hilton Labriz sits on a white-sand beach that stretches nearly 1.5km (about a mile) along the east coast of Silhouette Island. The island lies just 45 minutes by boat from the north coast of Mahé on the hotel’s shuttle service that runs three times a day. Alternatively, it’s just 15 minutes by helicopter.
Food and drink
Hilton Labriz’s seven restaurants offer an wide dining selection.
The main hotel restaurant, Café Dauban, serves international and Creole buffets and is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
A relaxed barbecue and seafood restaurant on the beach, 4th Degree offers a small dining area dotted with driftwood furniture and lanterns strung from the trees.
There are two Japanese restaurants at the resort, Sakura and Teppanyaki. Sakura is set close to the beach and boasts a striking interior design with Japanese influences. The menu is Japanese fusion-cuisine, and there is an open kitchen and sushi bar. Sakura is open four nights a week for dinner.
Teppanyaki is a lakeside pavilion with views of the mountain. The central show kitchen prepares stunning teppanyaki dishes including freshly caught local seafood and it is open four nights a week for dinner.
Portobello offers fine dining and modern Italian cuisine and is open for dinner four nights a week. There is air-conditioned indoor seating as well as an outdoor terrace for dining under the stars.
Grann Kaz, open for dinner twice a week, serves a fusion of Seychellois and French cuisine set in a Seychellois plantation house a five-minute walk from the hotel. The restored home of the Dauban family, previous owners of the island, it was built in 1860 and still retains all of its original features.
Finally, there are two restaurants which serve snacks. Lo Brizan, with views of the Indian Ocean and the deep green forest-covered slopes of the island, opens at lunchtime and serves snacks that can be enjoyed beside the pool. Lo Brizan has live entertainment at least three times per week. La Pizzeria serves light snacks and gourmet pizzas.
Hilton Labriz welcomes children and beds can be added to parents' rooms to accommodate them. There is a kids club for 4-12 years with a schedule of supervised activities, as well as a playground. Babysitting is also available.
The hotel arranges several excursions to help guests explore Silhouette Island, including some half-day and full-day hikes through the steep interior or along small, secluded coves. You can also book sunset cruises or a boat trip with private picnic to peaceful Anse Mondon beach in the north of the island. Or, if you’d like to try your hand at the local cuisine, you can take Creole cooking classes.
Though it’s a large resort in a global chain, we like Hilton Labriz for its location on the unspoiled Silhouette Island and the calm waters off the long, white-sand beaches. We also think that the hotel is good for families thanks to a number of interconnecting rooms and facilities for children of all ages.
