Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas

Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas will be marking its grand debut in the Seychelles this September following a rebrand of Maia Luxury Resort & Spa, an iconic, high-end property.

Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas located on Mahé’s south-west coast, sits amongst 30 acres of forest garden and is nestled between the island’s unique granite rocks and Anse Louis Beach.

Visitors to the stunning property can stay in one of 30 secluded private villas, each with a dedicated villa host available 24-hours a day.


Anantara Maia Seychelles, which was expertly designed to blend in seamlessly with the tropical island landscape, will operate with a ‘Beyond All Inclusive’ concept, which entails unlimited dining, relaxation and exploration, combined with wellness and adventure. Residents can choose from an extensive menu of daily meals, as well as personalised off-menu preferences, premium alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, daily yoga and qigong, unlimited exploration scuba diving and non-motorised watersports.

Those yearning for a tranquil experience can visit the Anantara Spa, which will boast three luxurious open-air treatment rooms. The spa’s extensive menu offers tailor-made Balinese massages and a range of beauty and facial treatments from the award-winning Omorovicza product house.

Other notable facilities include a main resort swimming pool, a fitness centre with TechnoGym Excite equipment, and paddle boarding, snorkelling and kayaking facilities.

Meanwhile, 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.

CEO, Minor Hotels and Minor International (owner of Anantara), Dillip Rajakarier enthused on the news: “The addition of the iconic Maia Luxury Resort & Spa to the Anantara portfolio, will mark the brand’s debut in the beautiful Seychelles islands and will represent an elevated level of luxury for discerning travellers in this corner of paradise.

“Without question Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas will become one of Anantara’s flagship properties and joins our existing portfolio of stunning Indian Ocean resorts,” he concluded.
