Arrow Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa {SYC}

Does anyone know the status of the Hilton Seychelles and when is will exactly open? The website states that it will open in early 2006. I'm still looking for a honeymoon destination in March. Thanks

You probably should ask this in the Star Alliance or Mileage Plus forum. As far as I know, no Star Alliance members serve the Seychelles. You can get to nearby Mauritus (MRU) via Munich and Frankfurt on Condor and via Vienna on Austrian.

Hilton Seychelles Now Available for Reward Reservations (edited)

The new "in" vacation destination for those with zillions of FF miles and Hotel points will soon be the new HILTON SEYCHELLES NORTHOLME RESORT & SPA located at Glacis, Victoria, Seychelles Islands.

A search for availability next May showed rooms available at EUR1000 per night. I tried to check some closer dates but without success.

(Edited to add)

The hotel will be Category 6, and will be available for reward reservations as from July 1, 2006 (Source: e-mail from Cynthis)

You can get more information on the property from Hilton.com - meanwhile here is a description of the rooms:

Guest Rooms

King Hillside Villa: Feel at home in 90m/969sq.ft villa, nestled in lush tropical forest and commanding spectacular Indian Ocean views. Relax on the sofa or large armchair with ottoman in your living area, featuring featuring contemporary decor and original artwork. Invigorate in the Jacuzzi, or step onto the balcony to admire the sweeping sea view. Keep in touch with high-speed access or relax with the DVD player. Special touches include bathrobe, slippers, mineral water and fruit.


Deluxe and Executive Rooms

King Oceanfront Villa: Relax in this luxurious 90m/969sq.ft villa, placed on stilts over the Indian Ocean for unforgettable sea views and luxurious surroundings. Unwind on the sofa or large armchair with ottoman amidst the contemporary decor and original artwork. Take in the Indian Ocean view from your balcony, or unwind in the bathroom. Keep in touch with high-speed internet access, relax with a DVD or revitalize in the Jacuzzi. Special touches include bathrobe, slippers, mineral water and fruit.

There is no announcement regarding the reward category

@obscure2k:
It is written in the Hotel description on the Hilton Website:
http://www.hilton.com/en/hi/hotels/i...tyhocn=NANHIHI

One and a half kilometres of beach allows guests to have un-spoilt ocean views from the villas and plenty of open space in which to relax and take in Fiji's natural beauty.

You can use your United miles on Emirates.

Or Northwest miles on code share partner Air France (operated by Air Seychelles from Paris to Mahe).

My understanding was that Hilton was opening a (new build) 65 room hotel on one of the outlying islands. Now I see it has taken over an established property on the main island. Does anyone know whether the "new build" is no longer part of the plan?

Now Open

According to this press release, the doors on 50 rooms have been swung open @ $500/night. Haven't checked the Hilton site as of yet to ensure they aren't jumping the gun.

Sound like a good use for those free night certs, anyone?
