Location:
Hidden amongst dense forest vegetation, the Residence on the Rocks offers excellent sea-views, overlooking the ocean from its hillside vantage point between the unspoiled, sandy beaches of Taka Maka Bay and the Anse Intendance. What at first appears to be a remote plot soon reveals itself to be a small, exclusive community of private luxury accommodation, affording you an attractive balance of seclusion and sociability. Situated close to the exclusive Banyan Tree resort, the Residence on the Rocks promises privacy and exclusivity as well as the opportunity to make the most of the excellent nearby resort facilities.

Accommodation:
Capable of housing a total of 8 guests, it is evident to see that a great deal of attention has been paid to turning the Residence on the Rocks’ luxury accommodation into a bespoke living space. The interior design is inspired by a delightful fusion of creole and colonial influences, with imposing natural stone features, dark woods, vibrant African colours and a delightful range of objets d’art collected lovingly from all corners of the globe over a period of several decades. The colonial splendour harking back to the early 20th century contrasts wonderfully with the various eastern imagery and African flair to create a powerful and unique property with a truly special emotional appeal.

The 2-storey main house spans an area of 450 m² and is home to 3 incredible bedrooms. Take your pick between the twin room and its king and queen sized beds or enjoy a night of pure decadence in one of the Residence on the Rocks’ two master bedrooms. You’re in for a magical night’s sleep within the vast beds, dotted with cushions and surrounded by a brilliant white mosquito net, which really give the sleeping quarters an elegant and ethereal feel. With a fabulously crafted wrought iron spiral staircase winding its way up to an upper-level work area, you can’t fail to appreciate the various personal touches that have given this luxury residence the great reputation it enjoys today.

Both the bedrooms and the bathrooms boast dramatic panoramas of the ocean below. Take a bath and unwind watching the sun descend slowly into the horizon. Relaxation has never felt so good.

Dining:
A personal butler is included within the price of the vacation home rentals at Residence on the Rocks. Your butler will be based with you for 8 hours a day and will only be too happy to assist you in the preparation of any meal. The kitchens are home to a range of fantastic modern appliances, perfect for cooking up a storm using all the fresh ingredients gathered on your daily travels. If you prefer to avoid the kitchen during your luxury holiday, simply ask your butler for advice about eating out. You will be spoiled for choice by the various restaurants dotted about the two tiny coves and beaches. Additionally, the Benyan Tree holiday resort is open for your usage – the mouth-watering cuisine here is an absolute must! For a really special treat, it’s also possible to hire a private chef on request. An additional fee may be entailed, but it’s money well spent. Sharing a delicious, freshly cooked meal of your choice in intimate surroundings – there’s no better way to dine!

Activities:
As previously mentioned, the Residence on the Rocks and the Banyan Tree accommodation resort belong to the same concern, meaning you can take advantage of the great facilities at the larger Banyan Tree complex whilst still enjoying the privacy of your more exclusive, luxurious surroundings. Treat yourself to a relaxing spa treatment complete with a heavenly full-body massage to really make the most of your dream vacation. Other recommendations regarding fun-filled activities on Mahé Island include car rental. This is without a doubt the best way to get around the island and really explore what this part of the Seychelles has to offer.
