Stayed at this property at the beginning of our stay to the Seychelles and again before we departed. Despite some hiccups along the way and almost being relocated, we had a lovely stay overall. Hotel does need updates and some work but we were happy overall with the stay. Prisca and Mostafa who work in hotel management went above and...

My wife and I visited this resort because of the view of the ocean and the 5 star rating. First, I would like to say how awesome this staff is. Very friendly, very professional and very helpful. Why only 3 stars. I've got three reason. First, the ocean is very, very dangerous on their beach. Now in their defense, obviously...

Dear Daniel j, I thank you for your constructive feedback that I went through carefully.

An impromptu long weekend trip to the Seychelles to stay at Banyan Tree Resort turned into one of our most relaxing escapes. Stayed in an Ocean front pool Villa with a private garden and swimming pool opening directly onto one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. An extremely chilled out, romantic and understated charm exudes throughout the resort....
