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 4 days ago

We have stayed in other Banyan Tree properties and this one does not come up to their usual standard. The good: Position on Anse Intendance is spectacular. Excellent Manager's cocktail party. 3 restaurants to choose from. Breakfast buffet is good with lots of choice. Saffron restaurant in particular is excellent. Prisca and Alexander were excellent. Some restaurant staff tried to remember your name and villa number to make their service more personal. Spa is excellent. Unfortunately the bad outweighs the good points significantly and I am afraid at this price there is absolutely no excuse for substandard accommodation or service. Some of the staff were very rude and reluctant to engage in any kind of exchange with guests. If they don't like talking to people then move out of the hospitality industry. Ocean View Pool Villa we were first allocated only had an ocean view when you stood in particular spot on the walkway. The room was dark. We had sun for just over an hour on the deck in the afternoon. We were told that the foliage could not be cut back for eco-friendly reasons. If that continues then the whole resort will disappear into the forest canopy soon! Stop selling villas as ocean view if they don't have one. The room was badly in need of repair and updating. Cracked tiles, missing pieces in the shower and water would not drain in the shower/bath. All inexcusable. We were moved after we told Prisca how disappointed we were and the area of the resort we were moved to was much better but still, the jacuzzi wouldn't work, the loo didn't flush properly, the water wouldn't drain (again) from shower. A room upgrade was lovely but it should not be necessary. The lack of attention to detail is disgraceful in a resort of this standard. Rubbish emptied from rooms was left outside all night for others to see when they passed by (I really don't want to see my neighbour's bathroom rubbish - highly embarrassing) Only 6 sunbeds on the beach at the Takamaka Bar and the sofas that were there to sit on were dirty. They tried to cover them with a sheet but the dirt still showed through. Broken sunbeds belonging to beachside villas that were being renovated were left on the beach. They have their own water bottling plant and free water is provided in the rooms in glass bottles but that is not available at dinner in any of the restaurants. They serve water in plastic bottles at a vastly inflated price. Warning - don't order the sparkling water which is the equivalent of Ā£15 a bottle. Order a glass of wine instead. It's cheaper. Car Hire is available as a guest service but be prepared to pay nearly 3 times as much as you can arrange it yourself for. A service charge is acceptable but that uplift in price is disgraceful. There is a much longer list of complaints but to cut it short - it simply is not good enough. One or two issues are excusable but on the whole they must do better if they want to continue to attract the sort of guests the Banyan Tree are used to. The General Manager was not present during our stay but we were well looked after by Alexander and Prisca. A very disappointing stay. We would recommend you choose the Four Seasons where friends of ours were staying at the same time until the Banyan Tree sort themselves out.

Just got home from two weeks in this amazing place! And We can tell you if you are looking for a place to visit where you can totally unwind and relax in beautiful surroundings with amazing food and staff who cannot be more helpful then look no further. We stayed in a beachfront pool villa. This was very nice and spacious. Ok as some have said it needs an update. But it was kept clean and tidy and they are renovating villas in order. But bear in mind they are right on this wonderful beach and you are going to get a bit of sand here and there. The main hotel building is built in old colonial style and it is lovely to sit in the bar enjoying a cool drink imagining you are in an age gone by. I cannot understand people who state that they found the food poor. Our experience was the total opposite. We went half board. Which we would recommend and found all the restaurants to provide truly excellent food. From succulent steaks to the freshest fish and Thai food which we thought was the best we have tasted anywhere. The staff without exception where very friendly and helpful and we thank them all. So in conclusion go and stay there and be at peace with yourself. We did!

Only went there for lunch we had arrived that morning on a cruise. So it was a tour of the island and down to the Banyan Tree. The views from the restaurant and from the verandah where we had positioned ourselves for lunch one word stunning secluded beach, crystal clear water, private tropical surrounds. attentive staff and the food right up there such a magical afternoon Will be back and stay

Located on the quiet end of Mahe island, this resort featured an incredible fine, white sand beach with surprisingly few people. We selected the sanctuary ocean view villa and were rewarded with sweeping ocean views coupled with perfect privacy. Lounging in our private infinity pool or hot tub au naturel, we looked out upon the jungle-covered hills and turquoise waters without worry that we would be seen. The bed was the most comfortable of any out of the four resorts we visited on this extended vacation and the air conditioning was a godsend in the tropical heat. There were several dining options at the resort and we were particularly impressed with the breakfast presentation each morning. From regional fare to fresh fruit grown on the grounds, to crepes to made-to-order menu options all accompanied by champagne or mimosas, tropical fruit juices, or tea/coffee, this was certainly a strength of this resort. For dinner options, we particularly recommend the cuisine of Chef Rachid Choukki, whose bold flavors and exotic spices in his recently introduced an Arabic menu rivaled our experiences in Dubai. We did not order off the menu, instead asking him to dazzle us with his expertise. We were not disappointed, although there was so much amazing, rich food we struggled to finish! The staff at the Banyan Tree were extremely helpful and genuinely cared about the guests. The manager, Mourad Essafi, took the time to get to know us and focuses the resort on the best guest experience attainable. The reception and concierge desk, and Prisca Lauriti the Guest Relations Manager in particular, not only helped us with resort reservations and activities but also helped us extensively plan and secure island expeditions in our rental car. The conservation center gives guided walks and is working hard against invasive species on the island. At all times we felt safe and cared for.

Amazing exotic place with stunning beach! Luxury hotel with all facilities you need...completely private! Beach front Willa large pool,exterior jacuzzi, sunbeds in three different areas, just a few steps from this amazing beach...large spacious room with contemporary bathroom,shower and Hamam. All very nicely designed in keeping with local traditional architecture, environmentally friendly. Friendly staff (-) Only dining room service :very poor to moderate and very expensive for offered quality and level. Certainly highly recommend!
