Tucked into the warm embrace of Intendance Bay with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean, Banyan Tree Seychelles is a secluded enclave of just 60 individual villas that blend colonial, plantation and contemporary styles. Accommodations ensure privacy, and the subtle use of indigenous materials creates harmony with the environment, further enhancing the serene setting. While the beachfront villas are popular, we like the intimate feeling of the hillside villas, featuring private plunge pools with spectacular views. For a romantic meal, sample specialties from the seductive menu at Au Jardin d'Epices, or reserve a Moonlight Gazebo 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 that give the term couples therapy a whole new meaning.
