Seychelles’ most family-friendly pads
Our pick of Seychelles’ most toddler, teen and tantrum-friendly hangouts
Hilton Seychelles Labriz
Winding down won’t be optional for adults at this comprehensive resort, which ticks every box on the ‘tropical paradise’ cheat sheet. Options include everything from lounging on pristine white beaches and getting lost in picturesque sunsets to seafaring excursions to catch and cook your own dinner, as well as world-class diving and yoga on the sand. Younger holidaymakers can revel in the on-site kids’ club, where staff-supervised tennis lessons, bottle decorating and playground sessions are just the tip of the energy-sapping iceberg. Precious family time can be found in a variety of hikes all over the island, whether to the stunning, secluded Belle Vue cove or the more challenging Grand Barbe plateau. The best bit? All the necessary kit – hiking bags, water and a packed picnic – is supplied by the hotel.
Transport the family to a home away from home in one of the North Islands’ 11 luxury private villas – and with a clear conscience. The resort’s eco-friendly attitude ensures conservation is at the fore, with each villa crafted from local materials and designed to blend in with its surroundings. Plan the days your way thanks to the resort’s Beach Buddy programme, which means children can be supervised through a range of activities throughout the day and parents and relatives can dip in and out at will. Fancy making pizza but not the playing the pirate treasure hunt? No problem. Leave the kids with qualified staff while you kayak, paddleboard, scuba dive or hike into the wilderness – or enjoy some precious ‘you’ time in the spa with the unmissable Soothe and Replenish Body Rescue Treatment.
