a seven-night holiday for two at a five-star resort in the Seychelles
Picture an isle surrounded by clear seas, where giant tortoises graze beneath Coco-de-Mer trees. It’s no fantasy on Silhouette Island, a near-virgin wilderness in the Seychelles. And we’ve teamed up with Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Etihad Holidays to offer one lucky reader and a friend seven nights on the island, staying at the five-star Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa, sandwiched between tropical forest and a creamy 2.5km beach.
You’ll stay in a Deluxe Hillside Pool Villa, complete with gazebo, terrace and outdoor shower, and start each day with breakfast overlooking the Indian Ocean, the jungle-covered slopes of Mount Dauban rising up behind you.
Pass your days exploring the stunning boulder-strewn coast in a kayak, walking through the jungle — or simply relaxing in the spa, where you’ll be treated to a massage each. You’ll lunch at the poolside Lo Brizan restaurant, before later dining à deux at one of four venues. Choose from gourmet Italian fare at the sleek Portobello; sushi by moonlight at Sakura; local dishes at Café Dauban; or a classic Creole meal in the restored plantation house Grann Kaz.
Etihad Holidays (0844 557 0646, etihadholidays.co.uk) has eight nights’ B&B in a King Garden Villa from £1,699pp, including flights, transfers and an in-villa ‘romantic bath experience’. Etihad (etihad.com) flies to the Seychelles from Heathrow and Manchester from £735 return. For more on the resort, see hiltonseychelleslabriz.com.
