“It may sound cliche to describe the Seychelles as a paradise, but no other words would fit better. Banyan Tree Seychelles is yet another paradise within. There is absolutely nothing there that is not perfect: The location, local environment, breath taking flora and fauna, incredibly friendly staff, impressive service, and of course the world renowned property with ultra luxury villas and amenities. The beach is one of the best in the islands, and a breakfast at the resort’s all day dining Au Jardin is to die for: Quality food+a divine view.” –Dr. Ali M
“We spend 10 days in December, new year eve and a couple day in January. We were very satisfied. We believe it is the best and most spectacular resort in Seychelles. It has amazing tropical garden, excellent food in restaurants, amazing beach. We very appreciated pool beach villas. Whole resort is very nice maintained and seems like renovated.
We travelled around Seychelles by car and boat but after all this beach Anse Intendance we consider as most clean and most nice of all Seychelles. We could see turtles laying egs on the beach and we saw nice corals and coral fish while shorkelling In some period see was nice flat but sometimes waves great to surfing. We were very satisfied with the service and we very appreciated food in restaurants. Breakfasts were very nice and Thai restaurant Saffron was excellent.
