Spectacular views of the Indian Ocean, talcum powder beaches, swaying palm trees, lush tropical forests and Banyan Tree’s stunning pool villas – paradise on the Seychelles. Our 60 villas combine the best of Seychellois architecture with touches of contemporary, colonial and ‘plantation’ décor. From the high sloping ceilings, airy verandahs, louvered doors and marble floors to ethnic woven textiles, the villa interiors are nothing short of eclectic. For ocean lovers, we have 22 one-bedroom Beach Villas featuring private swimming pools and spa pavilions. If you prefer an elevated position high on the hill with glorious sea views and tropical forest all around, our 20 one-bedroom Hill Villas are the prefect choice. They enjoy separate living pavilions and private pools. And for the ultimate in exclusivity, stay at our two-bedroom Presidential Villa occupying its own private cove by the water edge.
