Welcome to Banyan Tree Seychelles

Dear Guest,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing Banyan Tree Seychelles as your home away from home! We hope you enjoy the unique charm of our sunny island where the grandeur of the magnificent Indian Ocean intermingles in an atmosphere of spontaneous Seychellois hospitality!

We feel honoured you have chosen our Seychelles beach resort as your vacation destination. All of our efforts will be aimed at making you feel at home and we will do our best to ensure your stay with us is once again unforgettable.

Seychelles is a living museum of natural history and a sanctuary for some of the rarest species of flora & fauna on earth. With almost 50% of its limited landmass set aside as national parks and reserves, Seychelles prides itself on its record for far sighted conservation policies that have resulted in an enviable degree of protection for the environment and the varied ecosystems it supports.

The cosmopolitan Seychellois are a colourful blend of peoples of different races, cultures and religions. At different times in its history, people of African, European and Asian origin have come to Seychelles, bringing with them their distinct traditions and customs and contributing to the way of life and to the vibrant Seychellois culture.

This paradise is famous for having some of the best beaches in the world, pristine and uncrowded. Some are framed by age-old granite boulders. Others offer powder-soft sands, turquoise waters and sublime opportunities for swimming, snorkelling or pure relaxation. I suggest you visit Beau Vallon situated on the north side of the island and Anse Royale situated only 10 minutes away from our property.

The gastronomical experience at Banyan Tree Seychelles was specially conceptualised to offer you a unique experience. For local flavours, step into Chez Lamar and enjoy our genuine Creole selections. I would also suggest you visit our signature Saffron restaurant where you will enjoy Thai and Southeast Asian cuisine alongside charming views of the wetland.

We sincerely hope your stay with us will be a memorable experience and we look forward to welcoming you time and again, while assuring you of our utmost service and attention at all times.

I look forward to personally welcoming you to Banyan Tree Seychelles luxury resort.

Yours sincerely,

Fabrice Collot
General Manager
