A plantation-style spa resort set in 286 acres of thick tropical forest on gorgeous Anse Intendence beach. Once the exclusive hideaway of Pink Panther star Peter Sellers, this is one of the most private and picturesque spots on the main island, Mahé. Built into the landscape rather than over it, the low-lying, white clapboard structures look extremely attractive set against the dark green foliage of the surrounding forest. The architecture is also well suited to the Seychellois climate, with high sloping ceilings, airy verandahs and louvered doors. The main ‘house’, which sports a contemporary Asian style and big, bold flower displays overlooks the scenic beach.
Banyan Tree Seychelles offers 60 stunning pool villas in a variety of different options, such as the wonderful Beachfront Pool Villas, just a few steps from the white sand beach and the Beachfront Spa Pool Villa which allows for the convenience of a massage pavilion, steam room and outdoor jet pool all included. Ocean View Pool Villas are set slightly higher up the hillside and afford wonderful views over the ocean and bay. Possessing cool airy verandas and high sloping ceilings each villa is tastefully decorated and the ideal place to relax in privacy. Every villa includes state-of-the-art facilities, including an infinity pool, spacious deck with day beds, satellite television, air conditioning, spacious bathroom and various other amenities.
