Snorkeling, kayaking and other activities are among the draws at the non-smoking DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles-Allamanda, which has a gorgeous beachfront location, colorfully furnished rooms and a sparkling outdoor swimming pool. On Mahé, the main island of the Seychelles, the four-story DoubleTree sits on a palm-shaded beach dotted with huge granite boulders. The grounds are lushly planted with a profusion of flowers, making the nearly three acres a pleasure to explore. Many of the 30 non-smoking rooms have balconies overlooking the tropical foliage. Relax on plush mattresses made up with vividly colored linens, or lounge on the sofas in the sitting areas. Look for 37-inch LCD TVs with cable channels, docking stations for iPods and high-speed internet access. Take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, or work out in the fitness area. Snorkeling equipment and kayaks are available free of charge. There's also a sybaritic spa where you can indulge in treatments that use local ingredients. The breezy restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the bar has great views. On the southwestern coast of Mahé, the DoubleTree is on a coastal road that affords eye-popping views around every curve. You're minutes from Morne Seychelles National Park, encompassing 20 percent of the island's acreage and named for the its highest peak. About seven miles away is the Takamaka Bay Distillery, which makes rum with locally grown sugar cane. Eight miles north is Victoria, the world's smallest capital city. Seychelles International Airport is 10 miles east. The perfect spot for a beach vacation, the DoubleTree by Hilton Seychelles-Allamanda is right on the sand and offers free water sports, internet access and coffee and tea service in the lobby.
