The Northolme Resort and Spa is as removed from a typical Hilton as you could imagine. This is totally unique, both in style and setting.
Northolme Resort and Spa is wonderfully boutique with spacious luxurious villas, combining local woods, evocative Indian Ocean designs and contemporary comforts.
It is located in the north-west of the island, 15 minutes from the capital Victoria. A lovely 30 minutes scenic drive from the airport travelling up the east coast and then taking the mountain road across the island.
Northolme is essentially all about romance and simple pleasures so its main appeal will be to couples. Children under 13 not accepted.
Northolme Resort and Spa has 56 villas.
All are built on the hillside in staircase fashion. They are all spacious Junior Suite style (starting from 90sqm) with an integrated living area and patio. All are sea-facing, with some directly on the rocks above the ocean. Several of the villas have their own plunge pool. These are especially suggested for their location and sense of occasion.
- Several restaurants in differing locations
- The beach is split into two small coves.
- Snorkelling here is particularly good, but as the beach tends to shelve quickly the sea is best enjoyed by the more confident swimmer.
- The more expansive Beau Vallon beach is just a few minutes drive south or a short walk and here you will also find some dining options.
Northolme Resort and Spa is one of the most established hotels in The Seychelles.
David from Chic fondly remembers it from the 1970s and not a lot of people can say that. It was the home for novelists Somerset Maugham & Ian Fleming for a few years, and even Archbishop Makarios (of Cyprus fame) was exiled there. Much of the wonderful history and original design still remains, although, now completely updated in a rather subtle and considerate manner.
The hotel is built on a hillside so you need to be comfortable with steps, nature and soft lighting.

An archipelago of 155 islands, of which only a small percentage are inhabited. Positioned almost directly between Africa and India, years ago the tourist board used a slogan “a 1000 miles from anywhere” which nicely summed up the location. A population of just over 80,000, of which the majority live on the main island of Mahé, the location of the capital, Victoria, and the international airport.
There are no direct flights to the Seychelles from the UK, so you travel via Dubai and Doha ( Qatar ) with change of flight. Total flying time including transit will be approx. 15 hours.

COVID-19 - Updated Information – March 2023.
Virtually all countries worldwide have relaxed their protocols on Covid and there are very few restrictions. However, most countries review this on a month-by-month basis and will take immediate action should cases return or increase.
As a general statement, we would say travel is back to about 90% of its 2019 pre-covid levels – although with maybe less staff than before. This can particularly apply to airports with check-in teams and baggage handlers, and also in hotels. If you are a long-time repeat visitor to a specific hotel it is quite possible you might know your way around the property better than the newly appointed staff – smile and maybe even try to assist!

All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers.
For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
