Banyan Tree Seychelles in Mahe, Seychelles

When you imagine the most glorious far-flung island getaway, chances are that you're still not seeing just how beautiful it can be, until you arrive at Banyan Tree Seychelles. On an island surrounded by nothing but the impossibly blue waters of the Indian Ocean, this luxury resort welcomes you to a true tropical paradise, spectacular and pristine. The resort is built into the hillside on a site that once belonged to George Harrison and Peter Sellars, and is now a fully restored mansion with a collection of modern plantation-style villas for guests. Each of the 60 villas commands ocean views and features a private pool with spacious outdoor living areas. Inside, deluxe showers and sunken tubs elevate the lavish factor, and everything from DVD-equipped televisions to wireless Internet access ensure you stay entertained as well as indulged. Lie back in your sun lounger chaise, breathe in the sea-spiked air, and take in the pleasure that is this Seychelles paradise.

The atmosphere at Banyan Tree Seychelles is romantic and exotic, lush and refreshing. Further indulge your senses at Banyan Tree Spa, where a full range of body treatments and beautifying services are offered, administered in open-air hillside pavilions. The main pool, with its infinity horizon, is a perfect locale for spending an afternoon in the sun, all the while tended to by a friendly wait staff serving luscious fruit cocktails and flavorful snacks. Stay moving on the resort's tennis court and workout indoors at the gymnasium, or try the on-site walking & jogging trail. Then explore the ocean via kayak and paddle around Intendance Bay, or arrange a fishing trip and try your hand at catching snapper, grouper, and sea bass. There are four tempting dining venues at the resort, from Saffron with its East Asian specialties and Chez Lamar with its gourmet gastronomy, to the intoxicating La Varangue lounge and the al fresco Au Jardin d'Epices. Get away from it all, yet have access to everything, at the idyllic and unforgettable Banyan Tree Seychelles.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

We chose the Banyan Tree Hotel based on previous experience and were not disappointed by the property or the staff. We are not the easiest of customers, but the staff rose to the challenge and we would like highlight Alexander Hues, Isabelle and Rowdy in particular who always responded positively to our requests. Intendance Beach, in our view, is the best on Mahe (and we saw a few), and the colonial style of the property is very much in keeping with the Island. In some respects it may appear a little tired at first hand but this is the essence of it's charm. We stayed in a beach villa which we would recommend as the pool is a good size and offers the best of both worlds. Everything worked (although the wi-fi was intermittent) and if it didn't it was fixed quickly. A note to anyone intending to visit the Seychelles. If you expect or want to bring your fast paced, highly structured life to the Seychelles, and try and force it on the populace, then you are going to be disappointed. It's an Island off the coast of Africa! The only emergencies here are births, deaths and marriages. Embrace the Island mentality and you will get the best of what it has to offer - in effect a vacation from the demanding hustle and bustle of the developed worlds stressful life. We're coming back, almost certainly to the Banyan Tree which is testimony to how much we enjoyed our stay as we NEVER do this normally.

We recently stayed for 6 nights at a beach front villa with our own pool. The views of the Indian ocean were amazing whilst swimming in our personal infinity pool. Just a few steps down to a beach that we shared with 2 other villas (who we never saw). The staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was varied with the most sumptuous passion fruits we've ever tasted. Our only gripe would be the exhorbitant prices for meals in the restaurants at night...just because we've treated ourselves to a luxurious holiday does not mean we want to pay hundreds of pounds for an evening meal. Regardless of this, we had the most beautiful holiday in a truly lush location.

Having experienced different luxury spots in and around the Indian Ocean, never felt compelled to write a review about a property. Except for now. This was my 2nd visit to Seychelles. Positives: Beach stretch and water is perfectly picturesque ( visited mid-April). The Rum Shack is well located to service thirst and hunger with 4-5 beach loungers under umbrellas. Staff is overall cordial. Alexander, the F&B manager, hard working and attentive. The turtle sanctuary on premise is a great initiative although im sure much more can be done if more money is spent on it. Rooms: took an ocean pool villa for 5 days - needs a face-lift, feels dated hence you loose that sense of luxury that you just forked out a bunch of money for. 4th day we where there,noticed on one of the small wooden side tables either a small roaches or termites infestation (not sure). Didnt make an issue of it cause we where leaving the next day and spraying it with the pesticide placed in the room cleared it up till the next morning. Didn't have much of an ocean view so asked for trees to be trimmed - was done in a quick and timely fashion but still not much of an ocean view. in-villa Pool was never cleaned from the falling tree leaves ( maybe a bit picky here but i think that would be the expectation from a 5 star resort, no?). Negatives: the food is good. there is no denying that. the Creole and Thai restaurants are a nice experience with tasty dishes. BUT THE PRICE. Bit on the higher side of ridiculous really! Easter dinner buffet cost us a little over 350 euro for 2 people. we didn't even open a bottle of wine ( had 2 glasses). Breakfast buffet - could be much much better - specially the buffet items. Again it all feels like a 5-star hotel withering away which is disappointing really. i don't think i would go back or recommend this resort unless a complete renovation is undergone. Sad really cause the location is a gem.

We booked the INTENDANCE BAY VIEW POOL VILLA from April 3 to 15. As we arrived early in the morning, the hotel provided a comprehensive breakfast. When we were brought to the villa 301 we were just amazed. The room, terrace, pool, jacuzzi and view are just breathtaking. The villa with it's outside facilities is 110% private and very suitable for honeymooners :-). Having read the reports on the resort, we were a bit concerned but found that not a single of the points raised has any real grounds. The service team was continuously well above 5-star level and 110% supportive to any of our requests. Mr. Alexander and his team in the restaurants provided an atmosphere of welcome and customer service excellence to the highest levels. The food and dining experiences we enjoyed were fitting our ones in a lifetime trip. The restaurants - Safron (Thai), AU JARDIN D'EPICES (contemporary breakfast, lunch & dinner), Chez Lamar (Creole) all provided supreme service and cuisine. The romantic dinner at the beach was the highlight of our stay. Meeting Mrs. Prisca, running customer services, was a shining light on every day. Her spirited personality was extremely refreshing and showed her commitment to making our stay extraordinary, which she exceeded. In the unlikely event that you have any issue or request, just talk to her and she will deliver every time. She and her team are going the extra mile effortlessly supporting a memorable and trouble free stay. At all times we had the distinct feeling that our happiness was at the core of all their efforts. At the beach you will appreciate and enjoy the Rum shack, a great location to hide in the shade and rehydrate. But be careful, the spa is very dangerous!!! Due to the fantastic facilities, treatments and team members, the SPA is 110% addictive. We ended up going every 2 to 3 days taking full advantage of the services; just heaven. Please visit the tortoise and wetland centre, a great team will introduce you to their fine work. Finally, we would like to thank the whole Banyan Tree team for how they took care of us.

The hotel is a little dated BUT the overall experience was wonderful. Our butler was absolutely awesome and so incredibly helpful and kind. He really made it for us. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday in stunning grounds, and great food. The experiences like dinner on the beach were out of this world. But it was our butler that gets the gold star for this holiday. He was one in a million!
