Pavilioned in splendour on breathtaking Intendance Bay on Mahé’s beautiful south-west coastline, this multi award-winning luxurious haven is perfect for romantic couples and honeymooners. It also boasts Seychelles’ first destination Spa – so you can be assured of emerging de-stressed, revitalised and radiant!
Tucked away on a hillside, the acclaimed Banyan Tree Spa boasts open-sided pavilions which blend seamlessly with the surrounding natural, lush vegetation. Drawing on centuries-old Asian traditions, the Spa takes a holistic approach to spiritual and physical well-being, providing a ‘sanctuary for the senses’ where only the sound of the waves breaking against the shoreline or the leaves rustling in the trees, disturb this serene paradise.
Accommodation is provided in 60 luxurious and spacious villas which showcase a charming blend of traditional Creole architecture and contemporary design. Each boasts its own private plunge pool and extensive verandah.
As their name suggests, the Hillside Pool Villas offer privacy and tranquillity amidst the canopy of sheltering trees on the jungle-clad hilly slopes – with glimpses of the azure waters peeping through the palm trees. The secluded Pool Villas ‘By-The- Rocks’ nestle amongst the majestic boulders of Intendance Bay, and enjoy a spectacular view of the ocean – you can gaze out across the waves and listen to the surf as it crashes over the rocks. The Beachfront Spa Pool Villas revel in the glory of their magnificent setting – you can’t fail to be enchanted by their direct access to the powdery white sands of Anse Intendance – widely recognised as one of the world’s finest beaches.
Breathtaking views are the hallmark of the exclusive Intendance Pool Villas which look right out across the Indian Ocean, Intendance Bay (pictured above)and the surrounding tropical mountain scenery. Each enjoys a private hillside setting in between imposing granite rocks – Champagne on arrival with afternoon ‘in-villa’ canapés adds to their unique irresistible charm.
The stunning Two Bedroom Double Pool Beachfront Villas feature two pools, two private open-air dining areas, a jet-pool and two sprawling master bedrooms - all within 10 steps of the beach – and all with 24 hour private butler service.
Dining at Banyan Tree is a celebration of all things Creole – succulent seafood, exotic spices and coconut dishes – fused with an inspiring influence from South East Asia. In addition to the signature restaurant Saffron – and the eclectic Au Jardin d’Epices, the Club House houses the fine dining restaurant Chez Lamar.
Other resort facilities include a superb infinityedge swimming pool, a gym – and a fabulous luxury catamaran ‘Banyan Tree Lagoon I’ which can be charted for overnight cruises to the truly magnificent Inner Islands of the Seychelles. Banyan Tree Seychelles is a scenic 30 minute drive from Mahé airport.
