MAIA Luxury Resort & Spa
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Anse Louis
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 6, 2012

At luxury resorts people are used to excellent spas, nice locations, immaculate service, good food and paradize-looking beach. All of the above is present at Maia Resort. But there are things that need special attention. The most striking feature at Maia presently is a truly stunning chef, and very sincere hospitality of the buttlers, who attend to the villas. A gift of fresh lemongrass and handmade breadfruite chips as a farewell present was very touching.
Improvements, can be made at Maia, of course. For example it is advisable to quit using internal combustion engine buggies, the only visible reminders of modern urban life :)

Room Tip: ask for hill villas

like the title says the views are stunning and everything else is 100 stars. Food is great, my only complaint is that pools can get to hot or cold depending on the temp out side so your better of at the beach anyways.

Room Tip: All in all the whole establishment is wonderful, but obviously who goes to Seychelles and doesen'...

The villas are very spacious & absolutely stunning, complete with outdoor pool & bath, as well as a spacious balcony overlooking the sea. Our butler was very friendly & helpful throughout our stay, preparing breakfast for us every day in our villa and giving us good advice on activities. We went diving & snorkelling a few times and also tried the beautiful spa. The villas are all very private, so we barely saw any other guests.
The food could improve, however - although I think this is a wider issue with the Seychelles (lack of local produce, everything is shipped from Dubai).

This 30 villa luxury villa resort is far better than excellent. My villa had it all. Private swimming pool, spectacular views, the most comfortable bed I ever experienced, La Prarie bathroom products. Prefer a bathtub outside and complete privacy ? My villa had it.

A private butler is available anytime. I found my clothes folded , beds made every time you leave your villa. Don't want to be disturbed - just put your coconut outside your gate.

I had my home town newspaper copy delivered to my villa by satellite print.
Enjoy a private breakfast or dinner on your outside villa terrace - the butler will prepare it - or enjoy the oceanfront restaurant by the resort pool.
The food is world class.

All villas have satellite TV and wireless internet access. The internet in the Seychelles is very slow. I understand in about 6 months a fiber cable will connect the Seychelles with high speed and world class communication.
Your villa has a private phone line

You find an expresso machine, a well stocked minibar and an ice machine in your villa.

The resort has a private heliport, a private white sandy beach, a large pool, a five star restaurant - but you hardly see any other guests. Most guests remain in their private villa.

The resort has a spa, a gym with yoga classes, and is located at one of the most beautiful parts of Mahe Island.

All around fantastic !

Room Tip: All villas are excellent. I enjoyed the fantastic view from my villa located up the hill next to the...

MAIA Resort says "Maia offers you a place to restore your self."
This is far away from reality!
With no respect for you as a guest they totally destroyed the whole week that ended with a wedding. They didn't care and took no responsibilities at all.
We are so sad and disappointed that we choose this place.
Maia should go with a new punch-line "Maia offers you a place to destroy your self"
