A Sanctuary for the Senses

At Banyan Tree Seychelles, sand and sun are just the start to an exquisite escape. The 60-villa resort, built on grounds that once belonged to friends Peter Sellers and George Harrison, presents a tropical paradise bursting with to do’s.

The Seychelles is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean known worldwide as a hotspot for sport fishing, and Banyan Tree’s location on Intendance Bay offers a particularly abundant catch. Fishing trips, cooking classes, custom, open-air spa treatments or a date night under the stars can easily be arranged.

Cultural experiences, shopping, swimming, snorkeling and, of course, fine dining are other enjoyable ways to while away the hours in paradise.

Want to return home with a true tale of the exotic? Attend the once-a-week “Creole night” to sample the bat curry, a local delicacy made from fruit bats marinated in vinegar, curry powder, garlic, ginger, cloves and cinnamon.
