Location
Banyan Tree Seychelles is in Intendance Bay on Mahé Island, 30 minutes by car from Mahé International Airport and 45 minutes from the capital, Victoria. Mahé offers the perfect introduction to the Seychelles with its steep mountain backbone, slopes carpeted with lush tropical vegetation and sweeping coastline fringed by palm trees. The resort covers an area of 117 hectares on the island's southwestern coastline with a fabulous, 800-metre beach frontage overlooking what has been described as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.

Accommodation
Beachfront Pool Villas
At the Beachfront Pool Villas, the pervasive esprit of the Seychelles fills the air. You cannot fail to be enchanted by the sights and sounds of the ocean – from the powerful swell of the sea breaking on the reef to the gentle lapping on the water’s edge. The one-bedroom villas are extremely luxurious and spacious, giving the convenience of a private swimming pool, massage pavilion, sprawling veranda, outdoor jacuzzi and steam room. Local artist George Camille was commissioned to produce unique art pieces based on the legendary coco-de-mer, the world’s largest nut, adding to the exotic splendour of these romantic villas. A delightful villa garden offers direct access to the silky-soft beach.

Hillside Pool Villa
If you prefer an elevated position high on the hill with glorious ocean views and serene rainforest all around, the Hillside Pool Villa is the perfect choice. Its inspired architecture and furnishings reflect the natural style of the Seychelles through the use of indigenous materials. A small private swimming pool, veranda with sun loungers and open-air pavilion invite you to leave the world behind.

Presidential Villa
For the ultimate in luxury, stay at the exquisite Presidential Villa, which occupies its very own private cove by the water’s edge. No expense has been spared at this secret hideaway. You can entertain on a lavish scale – there is a grand entrance under a porte cochere, a free-form infinity pool carved into the granite boulders, an outdoor jacuzzi and shower, a large sundeck and living pavilion, and a dining pavilion with a kitchen and guest bathroom. The Presidential Villa can be combined with the adjoining Hillside Pool Villa to create a sprawling two-bedroom complex.

Dining
