Glacis Heights Villa is a luxurious escape perched above the beaches on the north coast of Mahe. The hotel has four exquisite bedrooms with ocean and sunset views of Silhouette Island. Each room has a romantic four-poster bed, en suite bath, writing desk, TV, and free Wi-Fi. Three of the bedrooms have private balconies. The rooms are located on the top two levels of the hotel, and the bottom level houses the hotel's common areas, terrace, and dining room.
The building is peacefully situated a short walk from the coast, and a 10-minute stroll downhill brings you to a small, secluded beach that's wonderful for relaxing. Beau Vallon, one of the best beaches on Mahe, is just five minutes away by car, and there are several other lovely beaches in the area. Mahe has excellent public transportation, and buses stop at the small beach by the hotel if you'd like to explore the island by bus and avoid the hassle of driving.
The hotel is owned by a couple, Bryan and Beryl. Beryl handles the cooking, and she's impressive in the kitchen. Breakfasts are large and satisfying, and dinner is generally Creole cuisine with a creative twist. If you have special dietary needs or restrictions, or if you'd like to have anything in particular at mealtime, just let Beryl know. The hotel is designed to be intimate and comfortable, and it succeeds completely. This is the perfect spot for a romantic retreat, and the gorgeous sunset views of the ocean only up the romance factor.
