One of the Indian Ocean's most important biodiversity sanctuaries, Silhouette Island is a sight to behold. Labriz capitalises on these sensational surrounds offing incredible views of towering Mount Dauban, its open lagoon, lush forest and sparkling aqua ocean. The five star PADI dive centre acquaints guests with this amazing underwater world (with diving tuition, snorkelling, game fishing, sailing) while the resort's 110 villas, sprinkled along the east side of the island, take care of the beauty above. Shrouded in tropical vegetation they promise absolute seclusion and serenity.
One of just 17 Pavilions, my 185sq.m suite is uncluttered and stylish - a meeting of contemporary and island-style luxury with its own private deck, plunge pool, garden and outdoor rain shower. Foodie that I am, the resort's five restaurants satisfy my experimental palate with a range of Creole and world cuisine. Next on my list of unforgettable experiences? The magnificent mountainside Spa.
