Banyan Tree Seychelles unveils new villas and dining experiences
The Banyan Tree Seychelles has revealed details of its upgraded villas and new dining experiences. The luxury resort sits in Intendance Bay on the island of Mahe in the Seychelles, and it has Creole-style villas in a beach, pool or oceanfront setting. New dining outlets will include a Beatles-inspired option and a new partnership with Takamaka Rum.
To coincide with the new offerings at the resort, British Airways has also launched direct flights to the Seychelles last month. The twice-weekly direct service will operate to the island nation on Wednesdays and Saturdays between March and October. The flights will depart from Terminal 5 at London Heathrow, and will be operated on a new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
A quarter of the villas at Banyan Tree Seychelles have been refurbished and feature tropical island colours, from warm yellows and oranges to shades of blue. The colonial-style luxurious pool villas are nestled on the hillside, offering views of the sparkling Indian Ocean. The villas have private swimming pools surrounded by swaying palm trees and rainforest, and they have been designed to blend in with their natural environment.
The resort will launch a new outdoor dining concept called Moutya in April 2018. The experience will bring the culture and cuisine of the Seychelles to life. Moutya is a traditional Seychellois dance which takes place around a campfire. Dancers move to the slow beat of a drum which then gets faster and faster. Guests are invited to participate with live cooking stations. The experience starts with a sundown ritual on the resort’s private beach, and guests will then be greeted with a flower garland and a drink at the Moutya entrance, before joining a dance procession to the gazebo.
Another new dining experience will be the 33 1/3, which is named after Beatles member George Harrison’s solo album, which was written when he underwent a new Hindu way of life at the Wetlands Area. George Harrison and Pink Panther actor Peter Sellers own the land that Banyan Tree Seychelles is set upon. Guests will be led through a hidden tunnel to reach the restaurant, where small groups of up to six will be treated to Indian cuisine.
The island retreat has also launched a collaboration with Takamaka Rum, who will be growing their own sugar cane at the luxury resort to create a unique Banyan Tree Seychelles rum. The rum will be aged and distilled at the Trois Frères Distillery in the Seychelles, and will be available at the Banyan Tree Seychelles from January 2019.
Guests will have access to an array of facilities at the tropical resort, including an infinity pool, tennis courts, a modern fitness centre, the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa Seychelles which sits within a tranquil setting, and the Banyan Tree Gallery with artwork, handicrafts, and spa products. Additional dining options include the Au Jardine d’ Epices with buffet dining and sea views, and Chez Lamar which is located in a colonial house with a wooden veranda, and specialises in delicious creole traditional dishes.
During their stay, holidaymakers can take part in fun water sports such as, kayaking, sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, fishing and boat trips to other islands. They can also visit the capital of Mahe, Victoria, to explore its shops, markets, cafes and restaurants.
