Only a few minutes away from Victoria, the capital of the Seychelles, the new Hilltop Boutique Hotel is the ideal place for a relaxing, stress-free get-away holiday in the Seychelles.
On top of the St. Louis hill next to the popular Creole restaurant, Marie-Antoinette, the Hilltop Boutique hotel offers a unique view of Port Victoria, the Marine Park, and the neighboring islands.
Managed by Victoria Fonseka and owned by her mother, Mrs. Irene Fonseka, Hilltop Boutique Hotel is a small tourism establishment with a unique touch and service.
The hotel is made up of spacious self-catering apartments ideal for family and studio rooms for single persons or couples.
The Hilltop Boutique hotel has been in operation since April this year, and the project took three years to complete.
The 11 spacious apartments of 50 to 80 square meters each and 4 studio rooms all provide comfort and tranquility.
The new hotel prides itself on being an ideal home-away-from-home place. The new Hilltop Boutique Hotel was once the home of departed Captain Tregarten, who ferried the exiled Sultan from Zanzibar to Seychelles in 1921.
In 1972, the late Kathleen Fonseka, who was a well-known figure as she was the founder of the famous Marie-Antoinette restaurant, signed a purchase deal with Captain Tregarten and set up a guesthouse business.
As a guest of the Hilltop Boutique Hotel one may choose to self-cater or allow yourself to be catered to. The hotel offers the option of a served breakfast, lunch or dinner, and afternoon coffee or tea with pastry.
Though it has taken 3 years to construct, the Fonseka team is happy that this dream has become a reality. The Fonseka family see themselves leading an establishment with an amazing history which is now contributing towards the advancement of the tourism industry of Seychelles. Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, accompanied by Anne Lafortune, the PS for Tourism, and Nathalie Didon, the Deputy CEO of the Tourism Board, visited the new Victoria property to meet with the Owner/Manager and said that they welcomed another Seychellois family into the tourism industry of Seychelles.
“We have echoed the call for Seychelles to claim back its tourism industry, and the only way our country can achieve this drive is to see more Seychellois follow the example of the Fonseka Family who have moved back to Seychelles from Germany,” Minister St.Ange said as he congratulated the owners of the new Hilltop Boutique Hotel for bringing a great new addition to the bed stock of the country.
