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

This is a great hotel. The positives are the fantastic beach (although not good for swimming it is great for wave jumping if you are very careful and strong, it knocked me off my feet!), lovely food, good spa, nice ambience, good room service options to dine in the villa including diy bbq. The highlight for us was the beachfront... 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

We had an amazing time at this hotel , luxury with bells on As it was an retirement treat , they don't come any sweeter The trip was arranged for us by Stylish Resorts which I would recommend to anyone travelling to the Seychells as the whole package of 3 Islands hopping could not be smoother

an outstanding location, the views and the beach were picture perfect, the resort is nestled into an almost private bay and you can step straight from the hotel onto the beach. We stayed in one of the Intendance Villas, which overlooked the bay and had its own pool and outside seating/dining area - it was quiet and peaceful yet still... More

We had the presidential suite nestled hillside, overlooking the ocean and the beach. While we think there is some room for improvement, we would come here again because the setting is unrivaled.
