When you’re after a luxurious tropical island hideaway, you don’t generally go looking just off the nearest freeway exit — and, way out in the middle of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles are indeed a long way from pretty much everywhere. The Banyan Tree resort here occupies a privileged location on the shores of Mahé Island’s stunning Intendance Bay, and really, the unspoiled seclusion of the setting — a cluster of lush, villa-dotted hills rising from that famous Seychellois white sand and warm crystalline water — is more than enough reward for a few extra miles of air travel.

Even for the rarified world of Seychelles resorts, villas here are exceedingly private. Decorated in a colonial style, each one comes with a private plunge pool and a breezy open-air veranda. They’re scattered widely across the property, hidden from prying eyes but open to the views.

As enticing as it is to hang out by the ocean, the poolside scene may be even better. The beach here, though gorgeous, is a bit less subdued than it looks, especially given the strong currents at play, while the long infinity pool, set on a deck high above the bay, is about as civilized as can be.

After a not-so-hard day’s lounging by the pool, it’s worth setting aside some time for a trip to the spa, where Banyan Tree truly excels. Your treatment, in an open-air pagoda amidst the foliage of the tropical forest, is at the hands of a therapist trained at one of Banyan Tree’s own highly regarded spa academies. With options like carrot scrubs and milk baths, plus others using apples and green tea and lemongrass and cucumbers, you’ll have to resist the urge to eat and drink all the good stuff they’re laying on you.

Fortunately, they save some groceries for the restaurants, too. From Creole fine dining to Banyan Tree’s specialty, contemporary Thai, to light snacks by the side of the pool, there’s a range of dining options, though taking dinner in your villa may be the best of all. You’ve come a long way, after all, for some privacy, and Banyan Tree is more than up to the task of ensuring you make the most of it.
