If you can’t imagine anything better than having your wedding on a gorgeous beach, with only your nearest and dearest at your side, perhaps you should consider getting married abroad – more specifically, in the Seychelles. Seychelles honeymoons have really come into the spotlight since the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge chose to spend their honeymoon at North Island. What better way to enjoy a similar luxury than to spend your own wedding and honeymoon on these paradise islands?
Banyan Tree is situated on Intendance Bay on Mahe’s southwest coastline, an incredible stretch of beach backed by lush forest. The hotel is spread out over the hillside, with the spa in particular nestled within the dense foliage. The entire resort nestles comfortably within nature, providing an incredible experience to all who choose to visit there.
The resort is composed entirely of villas, with different levels and settings for each. The Hillside Pool Villas offer, as the name suggests, private pools ensconced comfortably amongst the natural setting on the hill, with occasional glimpses of the shoreline below visible through the trees. The villas by the rocks are located close enough to the sea for you to hear the crash of water on rocks. These have a gorgeous view of the water and are perfectly situated for privacy. Lastly, the Beachfront Spa Pool Villas are situated directly on the glorious beach with direct access to the water and soft sands. The Intendance Pool Villas boast glorious views of the beach and a private hillside setting, while the truly stunning Two Bedroom Double Pool Beachfront Villas are a celebration of all things luxury.
The resort also offers an infinity edge swimming pool, aforementioned spa, fitness centre, and a fabulous luxury catamaran which can be chartered for overnight cruises and exploration. And the restaurants are to die for, with exquisite Creole cuisine with inspiration from South East Asia.
