This spring, the five-star Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa on Silhouette Island is proud to open the Indian Ocean’s first hotel museum, Grann Kaz, set in a beautifully restored plantation house. Located on the third largest island in the Seychelles, guests of the resort are invited to immerse themselves in a brand new cultural experience, learning about the island’s rich history which spans from the 12th century. Guests can also learn about the thriving coconut and vanilla plantations by hiking through Jardin Marron, where the island’s own collection of Coco de Mer trees can be found. This opening will ensure that guests looking for a culture hit on their holiday, aside from the usual sun sea sand break, will be well catered for and promises a unique experience for guests of Labriz Resort & Spa as it’s the only hotel in the Seychelles with a museum attached to it. After exploring Grann Kaz, guests can indulge in a delicious lunch at the hotel’s authentic creole restaurant, offering dishes which combine the subtleties of French cuisine with Indian spices and oriental flavours. Guests who want to try their own hand at recreating the food can take part in one of the resort’s creole cooking classes, where they can learn the secrets behind the island’s cuisine.
