Our second stop was not just a stop, it was a drive and then a ferry stop away to an Island called Silhouette Island and lies 20 km northwest of Mahé in the Seychelles. It is the third largest granitic island in the Seychelles. It has an area of 20 km2 and has a population of about 200, mostly workers on the island. Mount Dubon being a backdrop reaching a height of 780mtrs. Silhouette Island is also home to many species as it is a rainforest type island. With so much history on the island itself, it almost feels as if no one ever left. It’s also known to have one of the best dive centers and hikes in Seychelles. We arrived 40 minutes by ferry to Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa

Here is a small review

We booked our one bedroom beach front with swimming pool a couple weeks in advance knowingly that these were very popular with tourists. 111 air-conditioned villas with bath, outdoor shower, hairdryer, TV, DVD player, minibar, espresso machines (Deluxe Villas), tea/coffee facilities, terrace and courtyard garden. Some Beach Villas have a plunge pool. Deluxe Pool Villas have a separate outdoor dining pavilion and a swimming pool

Dining

The Grann Kaz Plantation House restaurant at Hilton Labriz serves traditional Creole cuisine, while an Italian restaurant Portebello, and the Teppanyaki and Sakura restaurants offer a more international flavour by blending Asian and European influences. The Café Dauban (main restaurant) offers varied theme dinners and the bar and the pizzeria offers lighter options for lunch. Guests staying on Half Board at Labriz may dine-around at any of the hotel’s restaurants (excluding Teppanyaki).

  • They say, reality is a projection of your thoughts. I’ve dreamed about sailing north of the arctic for years... I never doubted for a second that it would not happen ‘one day’ but, nothing every prepared me for what I’m experiencing on this trip witnessing the magic of the midnight sun!! I’ve seen and felt things I never imagined existed or at least only on @natgeotravel magazines. This is the start of my 3 day journey sailing in the arctic! 💫

I’m also very excited to announce our new partnership with @pukkatravels for our next @travelwithtjd #TravelWithTJD in October and now, you can join me too! Information will be up tonight on the link in bio!
  • I know escapism is real to so many of us... but you can’t escape yourself and, travel won’t be the answer, so learn to love every single weakness and strength you have because no matter where you go, your thoughts go with you... nothing will disappear just because you can’t see what’s going on. 💫
  • There is something so incredibly special and cozy about boutique hotels that I love so much... like @constancehotels - Do you prefer large resorts or boutique properties?
  • We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe... and most of us are breathing the best way we can... I think I’m ready to get back out there 💫
  • It’s the ‘have you seen the way he looks at her’ kind of love I have with you 💫
  • What do you see? It’s so easy to fall in love with landscapes and nature in Sweden. I know some of you have realized my insane fascination with Scandinavia but I just can’t help it. Maybe it’s because I am familiar with isolation and I embrace it so well... It keeps my creativity as fierce as ever and it never gets lonely. Maybe it’s because I love the adventure and photography so much... I’m not sure what it is. 
This is called The Mirrorcube - camouflaged mirrored walls reflecting the surrounding. I can’t wait to return!
  • This simply makes me smile! Happy Sunday everyone! Can you spot the baby giraffe? 😊
  • I’m sorting out my summer plans today and added Portugal again! I’m excited to be going back and exploring more landscapes, culture, food, sailing and the incredible nightlife! There is a whole article on my last trip and guides on my website! What are your summer plans?
  • I gave you a heart stronger than a thousand warriors... but it will take you years to learn that not everyone loves like you do... 💫
  • Not bad for a view outside my room window! She looks like she’s waiting for me to come out and play ☺️ - What do you think?
  • Looking back at the exact same time last year on a #TravelwithTJD team trip to Tokyo with @ritzcarlton - This was the view from my beautiful room. One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to! Have you been to Japan? I’ve got lots of articles and guides on the blog!
  • I spent my morning with @fourseasons worldwide team at @fsdubaidifc for breakfast and it was so wonderful to learn more about their new and existing projects, but here is a memory taking me back to Maldives. Isn’t the Maldives just an incredible place!?
