Things to do in Seychelles for Couples
Couple Spa Treatment
Like its sacred floral namesake, Banyan Tree luxury spa in Seychelles offers guests a Sanctuary for the Senses – a perfect place for couple to enjoy a physical, mental and spiritual renewal. As the pioneer of the Tropical Garden Spa concept and Asia's first upmarket oriental spa that focuses on a non-clinical and holistic approach based on traditional Eastern healing therapies, Banyan Tree Spa offers an exotic blend of ancient health and beauty practices reverently passed down as generational heirlooms.
Take a Wetland Tour every Tuesday and Thursday with our Wildlife Conservation and Rehabilitation Center and discover the endemic flora and fauna.
Covering approximately 7 ha, it is currently the largest managed freshwater wetland on Mahe. The wetland hosts populations of two IUCN Critically Endangered species – the endemic mud turtles (terrapins): the Black Mud Turtle (Pelusios subniger parientalis) and Yellow-bellied Mud Turtle (Pelusios castanoides integularis). Additionally it serves as home to a wide range of wildlife, like the Grey Heron, the Blue Pigeon, the Seychelles Sunbird, the Cattle Egret and the Madagascar Fody.
Rum Shack and Organic Farm
Toast your partner with the best Seychellian rum and refreshing cocktails and enjoy our fresh homemade bento boxes at the Rum Shack while gazing at Indian Ocean. Visit our organic farm garden that supplies Banyan Tree Seychelles with most of its fresh ingredients, and engage in an interactive cooking experience that will introduce you to Seychellois gastronomy.
Victoria is Mahe's largest settlement and the capital of the Republic of Seychelles. A 45 minute drive from Banyan Tree Seychelles, explore Victoria on a couple perfect-day and enjoy the feeling of winding through a postcard-perfect town, enjoying local shops and Eden Plaza.
Dare to discover the endemic Coco De Mer with your loved one and be charmed by the unspoiled nature. The botanical garden was established in 1901 by Queen Victoria.

Day Tour To Praslin and La Digue
With its languid ways, time-honoured traditions and carefree lifestyle, La Digue is a scenic island where you can enjoy a perfect romantic day riding your bicycle all around the island. Swim in the waters of the world-famous Anse Source D'Argent, before feasting on a Creole lunch at La Domaine. Visit the neighbouring island of Praslin and embark on a guided tour to the enigmatic Vallée de Mai, where the legendary Coco-de-Mer grows in the shadow of a hidden valley. The site is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is believed to be the legendary Garden of Eden.
The island is a spiritual harbour for international sporting and recreational fisherman, who return each year to break fishing records. Numerous records have been set within the teeming archipelago; world records for Striped Bonito, Bonefish, Giant Guitarfish, Bigeye Trevally, Bluefin Trevally, Giant Trevally, Moustache Grouper, Humphead Maori Wrasse and Dogtooth Tuna are just some of them. With some of the world's ripest fishing waters, Seychelles is a big-game fishing arena for both seasoned and novice fishermen.
