The Banyan Tree Seychelles combines classic elegance and style in exquisite surroundings. The beautifully appointed villas are scattered amongst the hills and along Anse Intendance Bay – one of the finest beaches in the Seychelles. Each villa affords seclusion and privacy with magnificent views of the Indian Ocean.
Its colonial architecture and interior furnishings reflect the natural style of the Seychelles through the use of indigenous materials: it combines contemporary and 'plantation' décor, from high sloping ceilings, airy verandas and louvered doors to ethnic woven textiles.
Banyan Tree Seychelles is nestled in Intendance Bay on the south-west coast of Mahé Island, 30 minutes from the airport. During May to September the sea can be rough for swimming.
There is a superb choice of three restaurants and two bars.
Au Jardin D'Epices: an eclectic restaurant with a homely, African ethnic feel to it. Full buffet breakfasts are on offer in the mornings, a selection of snacks, sandwiches, salads and light meals for lunch, and some fine international cuisine for dinner.
