Back from a week at Maia and wished it had been two weeks, or more.. I second all the positive comments already stated in reviews. The 'whatever, whenever, wherever' concept really lives up to its name and villa (hillside for us) food and service excellent. Not a lot is mentioned about the beach itself which I thought should be added... More

Just back from 10 days in paradise! We stayed here on the all inclusive package. Villa was stunning, totally private. Butler service was discreet, very professional and made everything easy.

We have just returned from 10 nights in beautiful Maia where we chose to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. It was the perfect choice! The accommodation is fantastic with so much space, massive comfortable beds, an outdoor bath big enough for 2, your own infinity pool and a separate area to dine and relax on the daybed when you don't...

Dear LLS32, Thank you for your review and fond recollection of your recent stay at MAIA. As you mentioned, even though the resort was full during your visit, the layout and concept are such that every guest has plenty of their own space and privacy. That said, there are of course opportunities to mingle and enjoy the convivial atmosphere such... More

We stayed with our two children for three nights at this wonderful hotel. 30 villas roughly half along the beach and half on the mountain. We had a mountain villa with exclusive privacy, beautiful views over the bay and sound of mynah birds chattering at sunset. It's not cheap but the almost all inclusive price means you know at the...

The Maia resort is supposed to be the most exclusive resort on the Seychelles. A nice place, 5 star hotel with 6 star prices and a 2 star service. It did not meet our expectations and does not provide value for money. The all inclusive concept might be tempting but we would prefer to get less but better quality. We... More

A warm welcome all day long, 24 hs splendid personal service, superb privacy everywhere, beautiful colourful nature, sensational surroundings, price winning spa and gardens, peaceful atmosphere, gentle understanding of all your needs, and so on. It is a fulfilling dream on that island, in that resort. Go for it - when ever you can.
