Palms tress sway of above the pool, which varies from four to six feet deep. It is heated and has pool service. The pool is also surrounded by a sundeck with lounge chairs that overlook the Indian Ocean.

While the pool focuses more on relaxation than activities, there are a number of beach activities offered as the pool area has direct access to the beach.

A popular drink here is the “Banyan Rum Shaker Punch,” which consists of extra dark rum, pineapple juice, orange juice, Pimento Dram liquor, mango syrup and fresh squeezed lemon juice.
The resort is located on the island of Mahe, the capital and largest island in the Seychelles, and offers 60 Creole-style villas complete with expansive indoor/outdoor living spaces and a private pool. The resort also has four culinary options and a spa.
