Anantara to Début in Seychelles With Rebrand of Maia Luxury Resort & Spa

(Anantara Hotels and Resorts)

Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas will make its debut in the Seychelles this September with the upcoming rebrand of the Maia Luxury Resort & Spa. Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas will represent the brand’s launch in the archipelago, complementing its existing collection of Indian Ocean resorts in the Maldives, Mauritius and Sri Lanka. 

Located on Mahé, the largest of the Seychelles islands and just a short drive from the international airport, the resort (designed by Bill Bensley and Lek Bunnag) is located on southwest coast between the island’s granite rocks and Anse Louis Beach. The resort has 30 private villas, each with a dedicated villa host available 24 hours a day for the duration of the stay.  

Villas situated atop the hill offer vistas over the coastline and ocean, while those along the peninsula are tucked away in tropical gardens and with direct access to Anse Louis Beach. A selection of villas is ideal for families or groups, linked through garden walkways. With high thread count linens and full-sized Hermès Bath Collection amenities as standard, each villa has a large bedroom, a bathroom with a glass-walled rain shower, dual vanity and outdoor sunken bathtub with a view, Smart TV with surround sound, personalized minibar, private infinity pool and a secluded outdoor gazebo with a dining area and oversized day bed.

Anantara Spa will be home to three open-air treatment rooms. Located in the resort’s gardens, the spa offers Balinese massages and a range of beauty and facial treatments from the Omorovicza product house. With yoga and qiyong already available to guests, a wide range of new activities will be offered with a wellness focus.

Additional resort facilities include a main resort swimming pool, a fully equipped fitness center with TechnoGym Excite equipment, paddle boarding, snorkeling and kayaking. For guests wishing to venture further afield, hiking in the forest and national parks or island tours can be arranged, or bespoke private visits by boat or helicopter to explore the Seychelles islands of La Digue and Praslin.

The property’s “Beyond All Inclusive” concept lets residents choose from a menu of daily meals, as well as personalized off-menu preferences, premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, daily yoga and qigong, unlimited scuba diving and non-motorized watersports, and more.
