Set on a forested peninsular on Mahe Island within 30 acres of stunning gardens beside a secluded white sand beach, Maia Luxury Resort & Spa is an exclusive all-villa resort offering 'no holds barred' luxury. Villa accommodation provides phenomenal views over the sparkling ocean and dedicated personal butler service ensures a pervading sense of calm and relaxation. A stay at Maia is all about individual personal experiences and once-in-a-lifetime moments; here, practically everything can be tailored to individual requirements!
The 30 spacious and exclusive thatched villas all have private infinity pools and are designed for premium hospitality, including dedicated butler service. Maia Signature Villas are located either on the hilltop or closer to the beach and are ideal for families or larger groups travelling together; some even have direct access to the soft white sands of Anse Louis beach. Ocean Panoramic Villas offer more privacy with more elevated views for sweeping panoramic ocean vistas and are perfect for couples - whether on luxury Seychelles honeymoon or celebrating a special anniversary.
All villas have infinity pool and spa bath, two separate outdoor pavilions, state of the art entertainment system, Hermes amenities, plus mini-bar customised on arrival to your personal preference. The villas are set within award winning gardens which include over 300 species of plants and flowers to further the tropical ambience.
All stays are on All Inclusive and high levels of service play an important role in the Maia experience, with private butler on hand 24/7 throughout your stay. Whether it's arranging a private excursion as a surprise for your partner, cooking a barbecue on the beach, or even entertaining the children, your butler will take care of your needs throughout your stay. This sense of service is carried over into the property's delicious cuisine, with meals taken in a variety of locations from candlelit dinners on the beach to the privacy of your own villa. Tec-Tec restaurant specialises in Mediterranean cuisine with an Asian-Creole accent, while the Sunset Pool Bar offers a casual dining experience near the ocean.
