We stayed last year and thought it was excellent. This year I'm afraid we give it 'very good'. It appears there is no visible management, prices have risen considerably, it's looking tired round the edges and service can be slow. Last year we complained about the gym equipment and were told that new equipment was 'arriving soon'. This year the... More

Overall this is an axing resort. It's hard to say what's the best aspect of this hotel. It's located at one of the best beaches in Mahe. The plantation style architecture lies in perfect harmony with the lush jungle and white beaches. Even though our Villa was the farthest away form the main pool area, the 5min buggy ride through...

While the seychelles are incredibly beautiful, my husband and I were disappointed with the service that we received. The staff overall was not friendly and lacked regard for time (causing us to almost miss our flight). The food was adequate, but nothing great. We expected more for a supposed 5 star resort, but our trip was wonderful due to the... More

We stayed at the Banyan Tree Seychelles on Mahé for nearly a week surrounding our 5th anniversary on the 27th of June, 2014. Everything from beginning to end was divine. Our room was enormous, and the adjoining private garden ever larger, containing a huge plunge pool, a delightful hot tub with a running fountain, a covered patio with a sofa,... More

We really liked the Banyan Tree in the Seychelles. Beach is superb, although a bit rough when the surf was up. Staff were the best and the service great, except in the bar, where they could train the bar tenders a bit better. But overall, I would highly recommend this as a nice place to stay on Mahe. The spa... More
