Wonderful location, with great staff

  • July 2015
The hotel is located some 3kms from Beau Vallon, with the villas, reception, restaurants, spa, etc., all beautifully located and sensitively designed and built in wood, mostly with stunning views towards Bean Vallon and/or Silhouette Island. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful and aimed to make our stay memorable, which it certainly was. Food was excellent, with complimentary sparkling wine offered at breakfast, and both food + drink prices quite reasonable (compared with our home in Dubai). Rather a small beach with slightly tricky access, but not a problem. Couples without children encouraged, which suited ... us perfectly. read hotel review

Perfect trip for an engagement!

  • April 2015
We had the most fantastic time on our trip to the Hilton Northolme Resort and Spa in April. After a somewhat awful flight arriving at the hotel was fantastic. The check in area is beautiful overlooking the sea. All staff were incredibly helpful and friendly throughout the stay. The pool view was to die for. We had the hillside room, which was the best we have stayed in. AMAZING jetted bath tub which can be utilised during sunset. Spacious room which was kept in good shape by housekeeping. It was my birthday whilst we were on holiday and staff delivered ... a chocolate cake which was a lovely touch. We also arranged for a candlelit beach dinner for my birthday - the food was to die for and atmosphere perfect (and turned into the perfect engagement). We had a fantastic stay and would recommend to anyone. We also got a deal through expedia for a very reasonable price! read hotel review

    We ate at the bar most nights as we were on a B&B basis and food is very expensive. Food in general in seychelles is nothing special and bar food was OK. I would recommend the a la carte restaurant where food was stunning.

    5 min drive from local restaurants, watersports etc. On the beach with beautiful views. Easy to get around the island when car hire is arranged.

This hotel is one of the best in the world in one of the best locations in the world. The only exception is that the bar is not so good. I ordered a sangria, but the bartender gave me a red wine laced with grapefruit juice. That was the only problem, however. This hotel is fantastic and the Seychelles is absolutely Heaven. Thanks for a fantastic time. read hotel review

The most intimate resort on Mahe
  • Recommended hotel
  • Couples
  • Beach holiday
  • September 2014
There are a number of amazing luxury resorts on Mahe, but none as intimate and atmospheric as the Northolme. The entire resort consists of a few small villas, situated on the rocks overlooking the sea. An extension of the resort has been under construction for the last two years and is nearing completion, adding a number of brand new villas. read hotel review

    The restaurant, wellness and housekeeping staff are all locals and very friendly. The management are mostly european or middle eastern, but have an extensive knowledge of the island's history and culture.

    Although the resort has a very secluded feel, it's just around the corner from Beau Vallon beach with a number of restaurants (3 minutes by taxi or 20 minutes on foot). A bus stop is located right outside the entrance, with a direct connection to downtown Victoria every 30 minutes.

    The infinity pool is the heart of the resort, overlooking the Beau Vallon bay. The pool is facing west, making it a great spot for enjoying the sunsets. A small gym is also located on the grounds, and a private secluded beach.

  • Room
    6.0

    Each villa has two floors, and each floor has one apartment. All apartments are more or less the same. The only difference is the view - some have direct sea views and some have garden views. We chose not to pay extra for a sea view apartment, since we'd be spending the days on the beach or exploring the island. The apartments are beautifully decorated with local art, walls made of dark wood, designed as studios with a bed- and livingroom, a luxurious bathroom with separate bathtub and shower and a large balcony with a table, chairs and a sunbed. A Flatscreen-TV, DVD-player and Nespresso coffee maker extends the comfort of the room.

It does touch me

  • August 2014
We booked this hotel during the promotional period on Hilton website. It was half board package, but quite reasonable for a hotel so luxury. There only 66 villas in this hotel (if I remember well), and all were booked during the low season. We were lucky to have the first floor villa, instead of grounded villa. Each villa has ocean view, but the the first floor is the best one, personally I think. The room size is definitely huge, with private and large balcony. The bathroom is open, I mean not in a small room, but you can enjoy the ... ocean view while showering. Just amazing!!! The infinite swimming pool have god ocean view. If you look from far away, it seems someone swims in the ocean, not in the swimming pool. They have a private small beach, where they provide the free snorkeling facility. The bar offers lots of beverage, BUT very expensive than your imagination. The dishes vary day by day. They have different theme to prepare the dinner. We had French, African, Chinese and Italian. It was such a great experience. The transportation is very convenient. In front of the resort, there is bus stop. With ONLY 5 Seychelles dollars, can travel whole route. Don't worry for the frequency, because this is not a problem. read hotel review
