A Family Escape in the Seychelles with Hilton Labriz Resort & Spa
Often considered a destination just for couples and honeymooners, Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa is welcoming families to buck the trend this year and visit one of the Indian Ocean’s most incredible islands with the little ones in tow. With a host of new activities, initiatives and partnerships now on offer, the five-star destination has everything to keep the kids entertained and immersed in island life as they take part in Labriz’s ‘Little Islanders’ programme and discover this hidden corner of the Indian Ocean.
Whilst mum and dad enjoy some much-deserved R&R on the beach, younger guests can head to Labriz Resort & Spa’s Kids Club and take advantage of a new schedule bursting with fun and engaging activities – from dance lessons and mini golf, to baking and arts & crafts. The on-site Labriz Art Gallery has also unveiled a new daily programme for kids, offering everything from painting and print making lessons with local artists, to cinema screenings. Those with inquisitive minds can take part in a Creole lesson and learn about the local culture; head to the hotel’s organic garden and see what’s growing; or enjoy a nature talk learning about the area’s flora and fauna – all organised as part of the Jungle Fun Kids Club. Labriz Resort & Spa has also recently unveiled a new partnership with Disney Pixar to celebrate the launch of Toy Story 4, so children will be joined by Woody and Buzz Lightyear throughout their stay – including a fun kids pack waiting for you on arrival and pop-up events planned for the coming months.
Always one to ensure guests return home with unforgettable memories, Labriz Resort & Spa is now offering children the chance to become hoteliers for the day, with their Little Island Hoteliers Programme. Learn the tricks of the trade as you put on your chef gear and head to the hotel kitchens for a morning of baking and cooking, before becoming one of the housekeeping team where you can learn how to make elephants, swans and crabs with bath towels. Children will return home with an official certificate showcasing everything they have learnt – whether it’s the Little Master Chef or Towel Art Master award, little ones can be proud of their new skills!
Families wanting to spend quality time together whilst away won’t be short of things to do and see. Head out to sea on a sunset family cruise around Silhouette Island, learn to snorkel with qualified instructors, or enjoy a daytrip boat excursion to neighbouring islands, Praslin and La Digue, and visit Vallée de Mai National Park. Those with older children can learn to dive as a family or hike across Silhouette Island to Grand Barbe Plateau, keeping your eyes peeled for the giant tortoises! After an action-packed day, guests can book mother/daughter, father/son spa treatments at the hotel’s eforea Spa.
The hotel team are on hand to ensure the whole family has a memorable stay from start to finish – whether it’s the children’s passport that little ones receive upon check-in, the treasure hunt encouraging families to explore the island’s incredible natural surroundings, or the dance routine siblings learn together at the Jungle Fun Kids Club, a stay at Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa always promises to delight.
