Banyan Tree Seychelles

Mahé, Inner Islands, Seychelles

The only property on Anse Intendance—one of Seychelles' most beautiful beaches—the Banyan Tree Seychelles is an ideal honeymoon location with its large, quasi-French Colonial villas that ooze luxury and privacy. All have their own pools, outdoor dining salas, and decks. Three restaurants, including the amazing Saffron, are yours to choose from, but the in-villa dining and beachfront dining (think hurricane lanterns and tikki torches surrounding a table laid with beautiful china and silver, all on the beach with only the moon and stars above) are the height of romance. The infinity pool frequently gets top honors, and the spa, part of the famous Banyan Tree line, is world class. A colonial-elegance-meets-NYC-hipster bar overlooking the sea is the perfect place for a drink, day or night.
