Banyan Tree Seychelles, Seychelles
As an absolute favourite of ours – we could not contemplate a Seychelles portfolio without including the magnificent Banyan Tree. Set on the pretty south-west coast of Mahé, 60 pool villas tumble down a craggy hillside punctuated with granite boulders and emerald green takamaka trees to the powder white soft sands of Anse Intendance – widely regarded as one of the finest beaches on the planet!
Banyan Tree Seychelles
The villas are an enticing blend of contemporary creole with ‘plantation’ décor, white washed walls and louvre doors, touchy-feely textiles and cool,clean lines. All villas boast infinity-edge pools and expansive outside living space. Ocean View Pool Villas are tucked into the hillside amidst a canopy of trees with tantalising glimpses of the azure waters through the foliage, whilst the Intendance Bay View Pool Villa demonstrates Mother Nature at her most impressive. Surrounded by the ocean and the immovable rugged granite boulders, your senses are assaulted by the sound of the waves. Beachfront Pool Villas have a magnificent ocean front location – step from your private terrace on the soft sands – your very own ‘bounty bar moment’.
When it comes to dining at the Banyan Tree you can expect a true celebration of all things Creole. Au Jardin d’Epices has an eclectic African vibe and a lovely relaxed, casual setting overlooking the bay. Saffron takes inspiration from South-East Asia, whilst for effortless elegance and romance head to Chez Lamar, fine dining in a glorious colonial setting amidst the splendour of the Seychelles wetlands. In-villa dining is available for those who can’t bear to tear themselves away and beach dining here is probably as memorable as it gets – imagine the deep blue of the IndianOcean flaming with the vivid colours of a Seychelles sunset as you dine by lantern light with the powder soft sand beneath your toes.
There is a fabulous infinity-edge main pool, Banyan Tree Spa, state-of-the-art gym, tennis courts and a whole host of island activities including nature walks, diving and fishing for those who feel the urge to be a little more active.
For the ultimate safari and beach itinerary you will love a 10 night stay with 3 nights at an all inclusive game reserve in South Africa, and 7 nights in the Seychelles.
