Guests can enjoy majestic views of the azure Indian Ocean from the elegant beach and hillside villas, which guarantee absolute privacy due to their isolated location.

Beach Hotel: Most beautiful bay in the Seychelles
The Banyan Tree Resort Seychelles lies directly on the beach at Intendance Bay. With its fine white, powdery sand, this bay on the south-west coast of Mahé is considered one of the most beautiful on the island. The beachfront villas have direct access to the beach, which is accessible to the public but used almost exclusively by hotel guests due to its remoteness. All villas feature a private pool, tastefully furnished living and sleeping areas, high ceilings and airy verandas. They are furnished with natural materials, rich fabrics and equipped with the latest technology. The family villas on the beach have 2 bedrooms and 2 pools, as well as a private villa host. With floor space of 165 square-metres, the 5 Intendance villas have a separate pavilion for spa treatments, a sun deck with extra-large outdoor lounger and a private jet pool. The beach itself is perfect for sunbathing and swimming, while diving, snorkelling, fishing and canoeing are all available.
Wellness Hotel: Multi award-winning spa
The multi-award-winning Banyan Tree Spa Seychelles meets the highest expectations. Spa massages, baths and wraps, utilising fragrant herbs and essences, are offered in 8 treatment pavilions over 300 square metres. Special emphasis is placed on the freshness of natural ingredients and an immersive experience. Banyan Tree Hotels trains the therapists from Thailand, China and Indonesia personally at the company’s own academy in Phuket. Through professional treatment, the guests experience soothing and relaxing massages, baths and treatments to the highest level and in harmony with nature. The spa’s excellence was recognised at the "World Luxury Spa Awards 2013 ’.
Romantic Hotel: Panoramic sea views and weddings under palm trees

All villas located on the hillside or amid the cliffs have spectacular views of the sea and mountains, and offer the utmost privacy. They are extremely comfortable and feature king-size beds, sunken bath tubs and deluxe showers. Over a total of 446 square metres, the Presidential Villas offer an infinity pool with waterfall, a second swimming pool, a gazebo, a patio, separate his and hers dressing rooms and a spacious living area. The hotel’s natural setting, with its marsh ponds, Takamaka trees and granite rocks, contrasting with the azure sea and white-sand beach, creates a dreamy, sensual atmosphere.
