Best place in the Seychelles!
Absolutely incredible - we loved it. Great island with everything - perfect beaches, a fascinating history, good snorkeling (sharks and turtles) and hikes. And, to top it off, the host Benjamin is also a TOP chef. We had fantastic 4 course menus in the restaurant (it would be worth the trip just for the dinner alone). We asked A LOT of questions about pretty much everything (history of the island, nature, etc) and Benjamin proved both friendly and knowledgeful. Rooms were sublime.

Wie im Paradies!
Wir waren 5 Nächte im La Belle Tortue. Einfach paradiesisch: sehr schöner Strand, gut zum schnorcheln, zum relaxen...wir haben die Ruhe, die Fauna und die einzigartige Tierwelt auf der Insel Silhouette sehr genossen. Jeden Abend zauberte Pierre einen 3-Gänger vom feinsten auf den Teller. Das Essen hatte absolut Sterne-Niveau! Wer gerne die Ruhe sucht ist hier absolut am richtigen Ort (wir waren sogar eine Nacht die einzigen Gäste und hatten das Hotel ganz für uns!). Grosses Kino und ein riesiges Kompliment an Pierre und seine Frau Auron. Sehr dezente und überaus liebenswürdige und hilfsbereite Gastgeber - vielen Dank für Alles. Wir kommen jederzeit gerne wieder!!!

Einfach genial!
Tramhafte Lage, saubere und komfortable Zimmer, wir hatten eines mit super bequemen Liegen auf der Terrasse, mit direktem Blick ins türkisfarbene Meer. Und hervorragend ist das Essen. Jeden Abend ein neues kulinarisches Highlight. Für uns das beste Hotel auf Silhouette:-)
