Maia Luxury Resort & Spa, overlooking Anse Louis beach on the southwest coast of Mahé in the Seychelles, is where thatched roofs sit like dots of corn-yellow in a palette of greens and blues. Spacious, thatched wooden villas open out onto sweeping views, plunge pools, private decks and lush gardens. Choose from the endless vistas of a panoramic hillside location, or a tranquil ocean front villa with manicured gardens and direct beach access. Home to a kaleidoscope of corals and tropical fish, the waters surrounding the Maia peninsula are ideal for diving. On land, explore the local landscape by horse or on foot, trekking through forests to waterfalls, up mountains and across beaches. Or, for an insight into Seychellois life, visit one of Mahé’s vibrant markets in the centre of town. Back at the hotel, Maia Resort’s spa has an huge range of luxurious treatments to choose from.
