Maia Seychelles Resort & Spa



The stresses of everyday life are eased away in no time at Maia, thanks to refreshing, peaceful accommodation, a stunning natural setting and seriously good spa and cuisine.





Maia Luxury Resort & Spa is a small and peaceful resort overlooking Anse Louis beach on the southwest coast of Mahé, with villas enveloped by lush green gardens fresh with the scent of cinnamon and lemongrass. Upon arrival, a dedicated personal butler will lead to your secluded villa, where beautiful views of the ocean and unprecedented levels of privacy allow even the most reclusive holiday-seekers to let their guard down. Whether you desire a private, candle-lit dinner on the beach or a massage after your flight, you may call on your butler for requests both large and small.



The 30 villas at Maia seem to float effortlessly among the canopy or skim the white sands of the beach. All have private infinity pools and outdoor baths, with mod cons such as iPod docks and TVs indoors. Ocean View Villas - set against a backdrop of mountains - and Ocean Panoramic Villas atop the hillcrest provide glorious panoramic views; while Ocean Front Villas lie just steps from the beach - ideal for families - and Signature Villas lie perfectly secluded, ideal for honeymooners.


Privacy and wellness with a backdrop of quintessential Indian Ocean views.


There is a dedicated coordinator and the hotel offers both honeymoon and wedding packages. Wedding services include efficient organisation of ceremonies as well as nice extras such as spa and beauty treatments and a romantic sunrise breakfast. Honeymooners will also benefit from thoughtful suggestions and will enjoy the service of a personal butler. 


Maia caters very well for families: For younger children there's sand castle building, accompanied swimming lessons with toys, and snorkelling in the pool, as well as painting and colouring sessions. For teenagers, activities can include treasure hunts, group canoe trips, volleyball and film screenings. All activities can be personalised at your request and are available at any time during your stay. Your personal butler will care for and entertain your children too.

Insider Viewpoint

Many of the things you are likely to want to do are included in the cost of your stay at Maia - from barbecues in your villa to a long list of watersports and all of your meals - which makes it a lot easier to switch off as soon as you arrive. For anything else, your every wish is your butler's command, and, thanks to their commitment to service and black book of contacts, you can be fairly spontaneous with your requests.
