Hotel Updates: Hilton Seychelles Resorts

Hilton Seychelles Resorts Win TUI Environmental Champion Award


Two Hilton Seychelles resorts have been recognised for their nature conservation efforts with the TUI Environmental Champion Award.

Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa and Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa are the only two resorts in Seychelles to receive the prestigious award from TUI Germany, a part of the international tourism business called TUI Group.





Recognising hotels for their work towards protecting the environment, the TUI Environmental Champion Award was an initiative launched in 1996 to enhance hoteliers’ awareness and commitment around sustainability. The assessment also takes into account guests’ feedback on the hotel’s environmental performance.

Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa is the only resort on Silhouette Island, a marine national park since 1987 and home to a huge diversity of indigenous fauna and flora. Guests can go on a selection of nature trails where they can marvel at the untouched equatorial mist forest full of botanical treasures such as orchids the pitcher-plant, and the incense tree.

Andre Borg, general manager at Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa, said: “It is an honour to be recognised for our efforts in promoting the conservation of Silhouette Island's biodiversity. Over 92% of the island has been designated as a protected area, and we have partnered with Island Development Company & Island Conservation Society to help preserve its flora and fauna.”

Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa is home to one of the few cannonball trees on Mahé, which are only otherwise found in the National Botanical Garden. The resort is also known for its structure, where each villa is perched on stilts on the rocky outcrop.  

Gregory Thierion, general manager at Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa, said: “We are proud to be one of the only two resorts in Seychelles to receive this recognition, and even more so as the other resort is also a Hilton Seychelles property. The TUI Environmental Champion Award is proof that we want our guests to have an authentic Seychellois experience, where they can enjoy the wonders of nature in their rawest form.”




TUI Germany has been awarding the most environmentally friendly and sustainable hotels with the TUI Environmental Champion Award for more than two decades. Around 250 hotels worldwide will be awarded with this title this year.
