The beautiful Anse Louis beach in Mahé is the beguiling location for this all-villa luxury resort where an ambience of stress-free seclusion prevails. At Maia Luxury Resort & Spa, the villas nestle within lush scented gardens and boast uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean, deluxe bathrooms with outdoor sunken baths, private infinity pools and interiors fusing local materials with opulent Thai silks and Balinese inspired teak furniture. Each villa has its own butler who will tend to your every requirement – from child minding arrangements to light refreshments. Even dining is a bespoke experience. There are four chefs on hand to create Creole, Asian, Indian or fresh seafood specialities which can be savoured in the restaurant or in a private location, whether that means a table for two on the beach, or even dining on the helicopter pad. Enjoy watersports on the beach or rejuvenate with an alfresco treatment or holistic massage in the boutique spa, cooled by ocean breezes. Meditation and yoga classes are also available and there is a recreation team that will assist with an array of activities, including swimming lessons, snorkelling, canoeing, surfing and more. This family friendly hotel is perfect for creating unforgettable memories – there is the Very Important Kids programme (VIK), with activities tailored for each child, whilst multi-generational families have the option of staying in two villas, side by side. Couples on a romantic getaway can enjoy candle-lit dinners, massage treatments on your balcony and the Ocean Panoramic Villas that offer sweeping ocean views and an ambiance of romance and privacy. The Seychelles’ islands are renowned for their unique beauty and this member of the Leading Hotels of the World matches these standards. With a personalised service that goes above and beyond for guests, your luxury holiday to the Seychelles will be carefully crafted, enabling you to truly relax and unwind surrounded by spellbinding scenery.
