Banyan Tree, Seychelles
Located in the beautiful Intendance Bay on the picturesque southwest coast of Mahé island is Banyan Tree Seychelles, a supremely stylish, tropical island hideaway offering spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. Former home of Peter Sellers and George Harrison, this luxury boutique resort’s main building has been carefully restored preserving the original architecture.
With unspoiled beaches, a lush tropical jungle setting, superb facilities and a philosophy based on the rejuvenation of body, mind and soul, Banyan Tree Seychelles will appeal to couples and honeymooners seeking a secluded and intimate retreat. Families are welcome although there are no specific childcare facilities.

Each villa features a king-size bed, high ceilings and airy verandas with stunning views. Intendance Pool Villas featuring swimming pools and Jacuzzis are the ultimate romantic hideaways.

The hotel can arrange romantic moonlit dinners on the beach and gourmet picnics in secluded spots on the island.
There is an array of activities to keep you busy from walking and bird watching to cooking and painting classes. There is a tennis court, gym and infinity pool, and you can go kayaking and fishing.
