I'm not sure what some people expect when they go to a beach resort on an island. So the internet is not always ideal - if that frustrates you, don't go to a beach hotel or make some contingency arrangements before you go. We took a quick break from work and chose the Banyan Tree; it suited us well. The...

I'm disappointed. Place doesn't worth the money you pay. Location is great, but in general hotel didn't meet my expectations. Seems people don't care too much here. Hotel is old. And territory is dirty. No entertainment here except watching movie at bar area in the evening 😒 Even couldn't get that coconut at beach bar after 1,5 hour it was...

We recently returned from a 2 week stay at the Banyan Tree Seychelles and our stay at the hotel was perfect in every way! From arrival to departure the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful, nothing was ever too much trouble. The villa was superb, being in your own infinity pool looking out across the Indian Ocean,...

We've been around the world for quite some time, but so far we never experienced a resort like Banyan Tree Seychelles. As far as we are concerned we found only one fault (a miserable WiFi connection). We read some reviews at tripadvisor were was implied that the ressort is expensive. Forget abour that. The whole island is expensive. Let me...

It is not often an old cynic like me can be blown away by a hotel. This is definitely one of those times. Banyan Tree exudes peace and relaxation I think that this is in large part to the kind and generous staff who have looked after us as if we were family from the moment we arrived and were...

I recently returned from a 5 night/6 day stay at the magnificent Banyan Tree Seychelles located on Anse Intendance beach, Takamaka, Mahe Island. This establishment is a TRUE 5 star experience. My room was 115, a well appointed luxurious beachfront pool villa. Even before my arrival, I experienced nothing but professionalism and prompt service from the staff at Banyan Tree....

First time in the Seychelles and am not sure that we chose the right place. The setting is amazing but this hotel seems to struggle with too many niggling problems that eventually stop one from from being truly happy to have stayed here. This hotel has to compete on price and quality with others we have stayed at . It's...
