Banyan Tree Seychelles Review

The only property on Anse Intendance—one of Seychelles' most beautiful beaches—the Banyan Tree Seychelles is arguably the most romantic resort on the island of Mahé, with large, quasi-French Colonial villas that ooze luxury and privacy. All have their own pools, outdoor dining salas, and decks—all of which are enclosed so that those inclined can treat their outdoor space with the same abandon as they do the indoors. Two 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. In keeping with the hotel line's Southeast Asian roots, service is exemplary.
