I am after a bit of last-minute advice as I haven't had a chance to research like I normally do!
We arrive in the Seychelles on the morning of the 13th May and will be heading to Hilton Labriz on Silhouette for 8 nights. If my understanding of this island is correct, we will be spending nearly all of our time at the hotel and eating and drinking there as there is nothing else available anyway? We are Half Board for this reason. But please tell me otherwise if I am mistaken!
We then head to Mahe to stay at Banyan Tree for 3 nights. I am aware that it's unlikely we will be swimming in the sea here at this time of year which is fine. Can anyone recommend a beach to visit?
I would like to know about restaurants outside of the hotel anyone would recommend? Is it quite easy to arrange taxis to get to and from the hotel? Cost of taxis roughly?
Are there any 'must dos' in Mahe? I have heard people mention Eden Island? My husband and I are late twenties/early thirties and like a lively night out.
Has anyone stayed at Banyan Tree and could advise how easy/difficult getting to and from the hotel to various locations is?
Finally, can anyone enlighten/reassure me in regards to weather? Forecast looks awful but from what I have read I should disregard this completely?? Anyone there at the moment or just got back?
Any other tidbits anyone could share would be very much appreciated!
Thank you in advance!
