TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 18 hours ago

I love luxury and I’m not naive to think it doesn’t come at a price. My wife and I have stayed at the Plaza NY, Beverley Wilshire Beverley Hills, the Bellagio Las Vegas, Claridges London and the Taj Exotica Maldives but I’ve never felt so utterly taken advantage of as I have staying at the Banyan Tree, Seychelles. Heineken 330ml can over £10, local Seybrew beer 280ml over £8. Cheeseburger and chips over £32 (see picture). Whilst I understand that the Maldives have to import everything to their islands, they were charging $8 for a Corona, whereas there’s no excuse for charging £8 for 280ml of a locally brewed lager. If you don’t like drinking alcohol, a glass of orange juice is £7.50. Coke or tonic water £5.30. We ate at the Saffron Thai restaurant, having had two curries, rice, two beers, the bill came to £108. Bloody Mary £16. One shot of rum is £8.81. A bottle of Veuve Clicquot £133.42. The cheapest bottle of red wine is £47. Water is mercifully, free of charge! Fancy cooking your own BBQ in your villa? £132/ couple (drinks not included). You get the idea. The ocean pool villa is lovely, although a very long trek to the main beach. The staff are very friendly and extremely diligent in their work. The villa is cleaned thoroughly every day and bed covers are changed after two days. WiFi is very poor. The plunge pool is one of the largest we’ve had and one can swim 7 or 8 strokes in its length. If you take a golf buggy to the room, you take your life in your hands. They speed along and you have to hang on for dear life. Whilst we’ve stayed at tropical resorts before in the Caribbean, we’ve never been bitten so bad by mosquitos. 50 bites between us. We used every spray and plug-in going but could not avoid being bitten very badly. So whilst I am complaining about the drinks prices in particular, I say this because I believe it detracts from what is otherwise a beautifully, stunning holiday location and whilst I understand these types of locations come at a premium, staying in this hotel simply means being ripped off.

Besides the location, this resort doesn’t have much to be desired. The lobby & furniture is unwelcoming & outdated. It is in serious needs of renovation and new decor. I found the biggest downfall of this resort to the landscaping. The beach is wonderful and is the best thing going for this resort, but views are obstructed by trees and bushes that are not groomed throughout the property. The staff is wonderful and the rooms are well appointed but it ends there.

We felt it was the best kept beach having gone round the island a few times! Sand was amazing. The hotel was great and everyone we met from reception, bar, restaurants, buggy guys and housekeeping were so friendly and helpful the whole time we were there if we needed anything we only had to ask .... (thanks for my milk!!!!) Couldn’t ask for more (except more space on my phone as couldn’t stop taking beautiful pictures!) we now have brilliant memories Thanks Banyon Tree

We stayed at the beachfront villa for 4 nights on our babymoon. We had a mixed experience where certain things went well while others did not. Reservation Experience: We booked online and everything went really smooth. Due to some medical issue, we had to delay our trip and the resort management was quite accommodating to allow us to move our dates even though our booking was non-refundable. Villa: The villas are in desperate need of a refurbishment and redesign. Everyday of our stay something or the other was not functioning in the villa. From the wifi, outdoor jacuzzi, the outdoor shower and steam room There were stains on the carpet. The interior of the villa also needs a redesign. The bathroom area is quite dark after sunset and needs more lighting fixtures or brightness. They also do not have any music systems in the villa in case you want to connect your smartphone device. We did raise this issue and they were nice enough to provide us a BOSE sound dock. We loved how comfortable the bed was in the villa. The generous outdoor pool and direct access to the beach was very nice. Location: What this resort has going for it is the great location. I think this is one of the only resorts in the Seychelles which has beachfront villas with private pools directly on the beach. This might be one of the reasons why the management is hesitant to invest more on this property to improve the villas and service. The beach was clean, great soft sand and clear water. The waves were quite rough on the beach, which we did not mind. We were still able to enjoy the water. Dining Experience: Overall, the breakfast at this resort was average. It seems like when the resort is relatively full they struggle to handle the number of guests at breakfast in terms of quality of food, replenishment of items in buffet and service. The croissants were not consistently good during our stay. They were crispy on the first day but then more soggy on the remaining days. The cappuccino was so bad that I stopped ordering it on any of the successive days. They need to invest in either improving the quality of the barista, machine or beans. The view from the breakfast table is to die for, overlooking the crashing ocean waves onto the beautiful beach. We dined twice at the Saffron restaurant, which was quite good. The food quality, level of service and food flavor was very good. I would highly recommend this place for dinner. We opted for the Grill on the Beach on our last night, which involved a dedicated person grilling some meat and seafood on the beach for you. This was a great experience with very nice ambiance under the stars. Though it was expensive, I would recommend it. Yoga: If you are into Yoga, I would not recommend this resort. Yoga classes are not offered daily (3 or 4 days a week only). I participated in the yoga class twice and in both cases the instructor was 15 minutes late. This is the vibe you will get at the resort as if you are doing them a favor by coming to the resort. The quality of the instructor was not very good either. Service: The service at the resort was below our expectations. I really think they have not updated their service standards with time. I find it very bizarre that for every request you have to call the reception and then they either deal with the request or redirect you. About half the time you call the reception they do not pick up. So you have to keep trying after 5 minutes. Nowadays it has become a common practice in luxury resorts where you have private butlers looking after a group of villas. This way you call them for requests or issues. By calling the reception every time a lot requests get lost somewhere and not addressed especially if they are busy. I believe the management needs to do a better job of staying in touch with guests staying the resort. For example, during breakfast or dinner they should make an effort to talk to guests on how their experience is going. This is common practice in luxury resorts now a days. By arranging a cocktails evening and expecting everyone to come to meet the management is not the best way. Guests should not have to go out of their way to give feedback to management. They should be coming to guests. Since nobody approached us, I took the initiative to find and tell the front office manager about the problems we had faced and areas of improvement. As opposed to taking ownership of issues, I got responses such as "oh the yoga instructor is managed by a third party company." That gives you an idea of the mentality of the management team of the resort. They don't take ownership of any issues that might arise. We even told the front office manager that our outdoor shower was not working but he did not inform anyone to fix it. So we had to eventually call the reception to get it fixed. Spa: The banyan tree spa was very good. The level of service, quality of massage and ambiance was excellent. The management of the spa is different from the resort management which is probably why you see a big difference in quality of service and attitude between the spa and the rest of the resort. Our overall experience at Banyan Tree was ok. There are quite a few things that the management needs to focus on to improve the guest experience including their attitude to guests. While they might have a unique location on the Seychelles islands, there are a lot of other better options out there such as the Maldives. If I were to return to the Seychelles, I would probably not choose this resort.
