After the most romantic month of the year, many travelers will no doubt be planning their weddings and honeymoons. The Seychelles is the perfect idyllic setting for a magical honeymoon with deserted pristine beaches, warm turquoise waters and luxurious accommodation.

This exotic paradise is made up of seven islands which have welcomed visitors since the first explorers dropped anchor in the 12th century. Nowhere else in the Indian Ocean will you find the sand so pure and soft and the sea so clear and warm.

The two main islands of Mahe and Praslin have plenty of gorgeous secluded beaches where honeymooners can relax in private coves and soak up the sunshine and scenery.

Mahe is the largest and most populous island in the Seychelles that not only has some of the best beaches in the world, but also a fantastic range of water sports including snorkeling, diving, windsurfing and water skiing.

One of the most beautiful hotel resorts located on the coast of Mahe is The Banyan Tree. A favorite with newlyweds, the five star Banyan Tree offers outstanding accommodation, cuisine and facilities.

The hotel is made up of 60 luxuriously furnished pool villas all with lavish interiors and glorious Indian ocean views. Each villa is unique and has all the ingredients for a relaxing and romantic honeymoon.

On-site facilities are excellent; with a tennis court, gymnasium and infinity pool as well as an award winning spa offering an exotic menu of treatments under the graceful hands of highly skilled therapists.

Food at the Banyan Tree is exquisite with a range of intimate dining experiences from dining at moonlight on the beach to tasting award winning international cuisine in luxurious bistros.

Honeymooning at The Banyan Tree offers seclusion, tranquility and a rare taste of paradise. A relaxing beach stay in the Seychelles can be combined with an African safari vacation.
