As the only resort on the island, Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa works hand-in-hand with historians and conservationists to preserve the Silhouette’s rich heritage and wildlife. Originally inhabited by pirates and plantations, the coastal plains of the local village, La Passe, became a thriving plantation hub. Among the most notable of inhabitants on the Silhouette was Auguste Dauban, who, along with his family established many plantation crops from coconuts to vanilla, much of which can still be seen growing today throughout the island.
Today, the family’s legacy is marked by the name of the imposing peak Mount Dauban, which soars above a virgin jungle filled with rare hardwoods, exotic orchids and carnivorous pitcher plants. The 19th Century plantation house, Grann Kaz, initially built by the Dauban family, has been faithfully resorted to its former glory and today serves as an authentic Creole restaurant, serving food which echoes the assortment of people who populate Seychelles, as well as housing a small museum on the second floor of the house. Creole cuisine features the subtleties and nuances of French cooking, the exoticism of Indian dishes and the piquant flavours of the Orient, fused together to create a unique Seychelles palette.
Guests at Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort and Spa can find reminders of the history of Silhouette all over the island, amongst the modern luxury and exceptional service. To experience the true spirit of the Seychelles, Silhouette Island is the perfect piece of paradise.
With over 93% of Silhouette Island designated as a National Park, guests can immerse themselves in the dramatic Jurassic beauty, whilst the Marine Park protects Silhouette’s crystal turquoise waters and its vibrant aquatic wildlife.
