Banyan Tree Seychelles is committed to sustainable development and has a number of key activities for helping to protect the environment in and around the resort and in which guests can get involved. A wildlife conservation and rehabilitation centre, the only one of its type in Seychelles, treats marine turtles, terrapins and birds, as well as many domestic animals. On Anse Intendance, the largest turtle nesting area in south Mahe, regular turtle monitoring takes place for the critically endangered Hawksbill turtle as well as Green sea turtles. Key nesting times occur between November and January, while hatchlings take place between December and March. Drinking water is already provided in glass bottles throughout the resort and the kitchen and organic garden provides much produce for the hotel's restaurants.
Various excursions can be taken around Mahe Island as well as day trips to other islands. In fact Banyan Tree Seychelles is great as part of a luxury Seychelles island-hopping holiday; a superb arrangement is to combine it with the tiny barefoot island paradise of
Denis Private Island.

Luxurious, award-winning spa, as well as a gym and tennis court. Island-hopping trips, helicopter rides, diving, deep sea fishing and local tea plantation visit excursions can be arranged. Please note, between May and September there are strong undercurrents and swimming is not recommended.
