Banyan Tree, Seychelles is absolute bliss and pure paradise. The resort is gorgeous, the villa was amazing, we had our own infinity pool and Jacuzzi. The restaurants are great and the thai was our favourite, delicious food! The staff at the resort were brilliant. We have never received service like this before and we felt truly taken care of from...

Our first stay on Mahe and so we chose the Banyan Tree, on arrival I did think that it didn't look very authentic Seychelles but it turned out to be a touch of luxury and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in villa 510, Ocean Pool Villa. The villas all seem to have good views and are well thought out for...

We had a marvelous stay at the Banyan Tree Seychells. Wonderful villas, Nice beach, friendly and helpful staff, excellent service by all means and some excellent dining too. Must recommend breakfast and dinner at Au Jardin d'Epices Restaurant for their delicious dishes and romantic view. My only qualm was that hotel restaurants have two different menus, basic and standard for...

Booked the Banyan Tree for a honeymoon - actually got married in Seychelles after arrival there ( but not at this hotel). Room 103 was a great Beach Villa, very private and within easy walking distance of the main restaurant so no need for a buggy service. Everything was clean, maybe a little worn around the edges as per other...

We stayed at a beach villa with an own pool for 8 days. This was magnificent. We enjoyed every single day. Guest relation manager Prisca welcomed us and was open for conversation every single moment.

If I would rate a regular hotel then it would get top marks as beach side location is superb, staff is extremely responsive and set up top romantic, however, for the price paid I would also expect wifi, tv and other facilities to function at all times (without calling out technician daily and sometimes few times a day) .
