Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Car Rental in the Seychelles

When you visit the Seychelles, odds are good your first thought is not about driving logistics- it's about the famous Seychelles beaches!

But when you come down to reality, you quickly realize that if you want to hit all of the beaches, exploring the islands via some sort of transportation will be required.

On Mahe and Praslin, one popular way of getting around is by renting a car. In this one we are going to share some tips and advice from our experience driving around these two islands.

Unlike other posts in this series, where we are able to capture regional driving tips and advice in one spot, in this one we have to break it up as driving on Mahe and Praslin are two slightly different experiences.

Hilton Northolme Mahe Review – The World’s Smallest Hilton

During our vacation in the Seychelles we used travel rewards points for luxurious stays at many hotels, including the Hilton Northolme Mahe as well as the Hilton Labriz Silhouette Island.

Our adventure began on the island of Mahe where we stayed at the Hilton Northolme, also known as the world's smallest Hilton (by room count).

Hilton Labriz Seychelles Review – A Paradise on Silhouette Island

When we first began planning our vacation in the Seychelles, we knew we wanted to hit up the Hilton resorts due to Angie's Diamond status and her obscene number of points (plus extra from our travel rewards credit cards).

We found out that the country has two- the Hilton Northolme on the island of Mahe (also known as the world's smallest Hilton) and the Hilton Labriz.

The latter of which was an interesting one to come up as it is a private resort on Silhouette Island. An island that, if you removed Hilton from the equation, would consist of just one small village and a little guest house.

We started calling it Hilton's private island, and after we arrived we have to admit, the Hilton Labriz felt just like that.

So come join us in our full Hilton Labriz Seychelles review!
