We went to the Seychelles Banyan Tree resort for our honeymoon and were not disappointed. The resort itself is located in a private, secluded location at Intendance Bay and each villa is located with complete privacy and top notch facilities. We were fortunate to be upgraded to an Intendance Villa with the most amazing view of the entire bay. The... More

Hotel villas and facilities are old and tired. It would have been ok if charges reflected that. But when you pay 5-star rates, you expect 5-star amenities and facilities. Only thing 5-star about this place is its location. The beach views were stunning, although just to look at, not for swimming. We certainly didn't think we got value for our... More

The setting of the resort and the view from the room (we were in a Hillside Pool Villa) were lovely and the staff generally very helpful. Our villa was well appointed and each evening brought a small gift from the hotel as part of the turn down service, which was a nice touch. Good wifi was free in the room... More

We stayed in a beach side villa and absolutely loved the resort! The staff was amazing and the property was great. Be sure to check out the spa! Nancy was an amazing massage therapist.

It's a beautiful hotel in a fantastic setting. I can't believe James Bond hasn't stayed here. Maybe Daniel can make it down soon. The staff are very good inside the hotel but not overwhelming outside in the grounds. A bigger smile and more cheeriness required. The food here is outstanding, I'm not sure what a previous reviewer was on about... More

A staff told us that all the other luxury resorts on the island took inspiration from Banyan Tree. We found no reasons to refute his claim. The resort, the oldest of all resorts on the Mahe Island, was beautiful in every detail. Very hospitable staff, very clean villas offering breathtaking views of the beachfront and the sea.
