Stay at Banyan Tree in a Ocean View Pool Villa for 4 nights
The colors come alive at Banyan Tree: the lush green of the surrounding rainforest, the turquoise waters, the pink granite boulders and the white-sand beaches all strike you in a brilliant display of natural fireworks. Located on the island of Mahe, the resort is set on nearly 300 acres of land—including almost half a mile of beach frontage—and is an idyllic place to enhance your vacation. The high sloping ceilings, louvered doors, ethnic woven textiles and airy verandas of the 60 air-conditioned pool villas all feature contemporary style imbued with colonial character. They also offer effusive luxury: private infinity pools, pavilions with living and dining areas, king size bedrooms, indoor sunken tubs and deluxe showers are all included. The beach at Intendance Bay has been described as one of the 10 most beautiful in the world, and you’ll have an opportunity to lounge in its sugary sands daily. And, in addition to the eclectic and elegant restaurants at the hotel, there is a variety of “destination dining” experiences with alluring names like Champagne on the Rocks, Grill on the Sands, Moonlight Gazebo and Sea and Stars. This is a truly immersive Seychelles experience so it is no wonder the Banyan Tree has won over 800 awards since it was founded in 1994.
