This is the best place for relaxing and doing nothing. Beautifully built with a victoria style on the magnificent white sandy beach. The sea is not suitable to swim sometimes but it is not the hote's fault (a good reminder not to abuse nature). If you are travelling as acouple, I would suggest to take the Beach Front Pool Villa...

Very, very nice. A great experience for the whole family! The beach villas were perfect. On one site the beach, on the other site the wetlands with the birds and bats. Very friendly and promptly personell in all areas. Other nice beaches and locations are not far away.

We stayed here for our last couple of nights of luxury after touring the Seychelles. After staying in some really nice places on our trip already we were more than pleased with this hotel & it was possibly the nicest of the trip. This isn't a cheap hotel by any means but it's certainly luxurious with a fantastic beach &... More

We loved the room. Stayed at the beach-access villa. It was large, nicely laid out and the outdoor jacuzzi was a lovely touch. We could almost touch the waves from the room. I didn't like the beach, because it wasn't average-swimmer and snorkelling friendly. The waters were quite rough and there wasn't any beach service (no beach service/amenities) or any... More

First of all i would like to thank the hotel manager Mr Ricardo Suarez who was extremely pleasant and helpful, especially after a rude mistake was done by the reception staff which i dont want to go into. First of all this hotel does not offer onsite water sports so you have to keep this in mind when booking. Beach:... More

What a great experience in hotel. We got larger room, lots of land, maybe hotel rooms should be larger, but whole property atmosphere was relaxing. I love the Spa and Celma took great care of us. We wish buggy guys were friendlier and chicken wings meatier. Also laying area next to the access of the beach was not too relaxing.... More

As many people will consider either the Four Seasons or the Banyan Tree, I will try to summarize the differences. LOCATION: The location of the Banyan Tree is visually stunning, the iconic rocks are all over, the beach is perfectly sandy and the crashing waves are great unfortunately during summer months swimming is compromised because of that. The Four Seasons... More

This hotel is amazingly beautiful. Each room has it's own pool and the views from the hillside are breathtaking. The attention to detail is incredible and the rooms were pristine. I would recommend staying here if you and your partner want to spend most of the time laying by the pool/beach. In the winter time (when we visited) the currents... More

One of the most beautiful beaches in Seychelles. The grounds are significant and you really feel surrounded by nature - beautiful wetlands and forests and of course the beach. The architecture of the hotel and villas will make lovers of a colonial style very happy! The value of the food / restaurants is not great - prices are too high,... More
