From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Prisca we knew we had arrived at somewhere we could relax in peace. We could do as little as we wanted which was lucky because it rained on and off for every day of our 5 night stay. We stayed end Feb/early March and we were told constantly that it never...

My husband and I arrived to Banyan Tree on Feb 2017. We were swept away with how beautiful the hotel is with its amazing beach and the most welcoming staff. I loved the room with pool over looking the ocean I also loved how you enjoy your complete privacy in the rooms. In the morning we had the most delicious...

Our time at the Banyan Tree was wonderful. Its location is the best on Mahe; the beach front villa was superb; and the majority of the team, in particular Prisca, were great. It has the potential to be an outstanding hotel but, compared with similar hotels we've stayed in around the world, there is a lack of attention to detail...

The drive from the Mahe airport took a good 30-40 minutes and the uphill winding roads traveled to Banyan Tree was an adventure in itself. The reception building was breathtaking, the staff was professional without the "stuffy fluff". I truly did miss the large Banyan tree in front of the building and just got glimpses of it when traveling to...

We stayed in a Sanctuary Intendance Bay Pool Villa from 18 to 23 February 2017. We have been aware of the high reputation of the Banyan Tree Group over a number of years so, when we decided a visit to the Seychelles was due, our choice was obvious. Accordingly, we monitored Trip Advisor after booking and became increasingly depressed by...

We have traveled extensively worldwide but found very few places like the Banyan Tree in the Seychelles. The attention to detail is unique.. From the warm welcome by the most gracious of hostesses to the bottle of cold water and cold facecloth offered by the pool the service offered was of an excellent standard. Breakfast was an experience of its...

We spent 10 days at the resort and enjoyed every minute of it! The resort is beautiful, peaceful and located on one of the best beaches of the island.
