Embraced by Intendance Bay with the Indian Ocean in the distance, Banyan Tree Seychelles is a secluded enclave of just 60 individual villas that blend colonial, plantation and contemporary styles. Peter Sellers and George Harrison once made their homes here, and accommodations ensure privacy. The subtle use of indigenous materials creates harmony with the serene environment. While the beachfront accommodations are popular, we like the intimate feeling of the hillside villas, featuring private plunge pools with spectacular views. For a romantic meal, sample island specialties from the seductive menu at Au Jardin d'Epices or reserve a moonlit dinner right on the beach. As with every Banyan Tree property, there is a beautiful spa with a special selection of his and hers treatments.
