This is an unusually good hotel, given its combination of lovely people, beautiful setting and delicious food. The rooms are well thought out and attractively decorated. The verandahs are lovely places to sit, taking in the view of the turquoise sea, which is all of 10 metres away. The food is great: plenty of fresh fish, slightly spicy, beautifully presented....

This is one of the most amazing places where we ever stayed. A charming, secluded boutique hotel with only 6 rooms in the middle of the luxuriant nature of Silhouette Island. A perfect place to relax and find the inner peace if you're looking for privacy. The team (Céline and Gisela) running this place is fantastic - so open and...

My ( 6 months pregnant) wife and I spent 4 blissful nights and days at La Belle Tortue. From the minute you arrive at the jetty on Silhouette Island you know you have truly arrived in Paradise.

An excellent 'Boutique' resort. Very private and secluded on Silhouette Island. The managers of this resort Mariannick and Emmanuel worked very hard to ensure a thoroughly relaxing and peaceful stay for us.

You won't find too many resorts or hotels where 57 out of 60 people rated it as Excellent. Those ratings are well deserved. I'm not going to repeat what all of these other people have written.

La Belle Tortue is a beautiful place to stay at: we had a little house all to ourselves, consisting of a living room with Pierre Frey curtains that are a stylized version of the coral reef of the sea just outside the door, an upper-floor bedroom with its own balcony, and a large ground-floor porch with lounge chairs and a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Belle Tortue is an exclusive lodge nestled in the cove of a cape on its own sandy beach, protected by the coral reef, enjoying a friendly climate all the year round. 3 villas, 6 rooms and suites in total for total privacy. Here, a few minutes from Mahe, time stands still and nature reigns. A Garden of Eden, a lush tropical forest, pristine beaches and clear water, Silhouette Island and the lodge offer you a lot of activities: hikes in the National Park, meetings with the giant tortoise, playing Robinson Crusoe on desert beaches, diving in the water of the Marine Reserve to discover incredible species, fishing on our boat Ti Girl and enjoying the taste of your own catch for dinner! In creole-style, with verandas open on the sea front, the rooms, suites and private villas of the Lodge offer intimate luxury for holidays in couple, with family or alone. 3 villas with a total of 6 rooms and suites. If you wish total privacy you can rent the whole villa or the entire lodge for an incentive and family holiday. The dining room offers delicious dishes facing the Ocean. The Chef will be delighted to prepare a three-course daily menu for you. Mixing techniques from here and there, he will introduce you to local products depending on the season and on the catch of the day. During the day, the lounge will enable you to relax, connect, share moments around the library, and enjoy a game or a cocktail at the bar or on the terrace watch at the nature show. ... more   less
