The Banyan Tree, Seychelles is a plantation-style getaway with all the high standards synonymous with this Singapore-based hotel company. Its elevated setting above one of Mahé’s finest beaches is enhanced by its lush rainforest backdrop; private pools on offer in all its guest quarters; chilled-out days devoted to the spa, the beach and each other.
The sixty luxuriously furnished pool villas are all beautifully designed to incorporate the very best aspects of Seychellois architecture. Their high sloping ceilings, louvered doors and airy verandahs are set off by a masterful blend of contemporary, colonial and plantation décor that establishes a restful ambience with a strong sense of place. If you like the idea of panoramic ocean views, there’s the Hillside Pool Villas with their small private swimming pools, whilst down by the beach are the spa villas with their massage pavilions, as well as the multi-level villas with separate sundecks and jet pools.
The 800 metres of beach awaits for romantic strolls, although you may prefer to make for the main infinity-edge pool than the surf-pounded bay when it comes to swimming. If you do feel like doing something a little more physical there’s tennis and fitness facilities; the soothing treatments of the Banyan Tree Spa always there for when you’ve overdone it. And whilst dining à deux in the privacy of one’s villa is always a particularly popular option after dark, sundowners in the colonial-style bar followed by dinner in one of the three restaurants is the perfect way to round-off the day.
