This is my true opinion of the resort for my 4 nights stay from 11th july to 15 july 2017. We had booked the signature villa along the beach which was a wise choice as the access to the one of the finest and cleanest beach in the world is just 15 metres away from the villa connecting both the villa garden and the beach. We stayed in villa 102 that was very clean with all the amenities such as a pool bar with a lounge to relax and access to music of your choice with all round connected speakers around the pool and bar as well as inside the villa. Great snacks of various dry fruits available as well as drinks of your choice. The villa was very luxurious and comfortable as well. A coincidence by luck when we arrived the sky was covered with clouds and the following morning there were showers and we thought it was a wrong time for a beach holiday but soon after 9.00 a.m. the sun was shining bright with clear sky and the dull color of the ocean turned into turquoise blue which further turned into emerald green. the white color of the beach in shape of a horse shoe really complementing a fine picturesque scenery. The warm waters were the ideal spot to hang out and the waves were phenomenal during high tide. We really had great expectations from the resort in terms of culinary cuisine since we had field a guest questionnaire to suit our requirements. We were Asian vegans and to our surprise the chefs would cater for our meal requirements and we had requested for different dishes to be prepared according to our liking and every request was complied with a smile. The staff at the restaurant were professionally trained and spoke well with a cordial attitude. All the drinks you would mention would be available. They have world class pastry chefs as well as bakers as their bread with different flavors were really amazing and freshly baked as well. The ambiance at the tectec restaurant especially at night was mind boggling and the location of the main restaurant facing the ocean was really wonderful especially this time of the year when you can experience a cool breeze that is very soothing on a tropical island. Everyone in the resort has a friendly and cordial response from the general manager to the serving staff. The check procedure in your own villa is a great relaxing experience as well as the check out in a similar manner. It is a perfect holiday to relax to enjoy the beach as well as the luxurious accommodation and not to be worried to be here and there. It is a home away from home to experience royalty service. fantastic location and close to the airport by 30 minutes drive. Finally you can enjoy the sun-downer with your favorite snacks which you can request your butler to be prepared as well as your favorite drink which is a beautiful and everlasting experience.
A late review since we visited Oct 2016. great experience The Butler service was awesome. We were there with 2 small children accommodated in a safer villa which was not on a hill and not recommended with Kids The pick up from the airport and check in all pleasant. A few issues in the room, a bit dated gadgets and sometimes mosquitoes was an issue but not a big deal.Great room with great views, immaculate beaches. A bit of white washed coral which was sad to see. Wine tasting arranged for us, great experience. Great Butler she took care of our kids while we did the wine tasting, safe and trustworthy. Definitely recommend this place. Needs more dining options
This was highly recommended to us. But sadly didn't live up to the 5 star that I would except . Rooms tired need overhauling. Doors a struggle to close Just felt dated . Poor wifi The food is excellent with a wide choice Wine selection ok but no decent sprits !! Gin in practically Lovely spa centre But they know how to charge !! Butler service wasn't up to much but I can't blame our young lady as she was thrown in at the last min Definitely not 5 star A struggle to get 4 Very expensive! Hill villas don't get the sun Disappointed 😔
Everything about Maia was amazing. We were met by the manager and our guest relations advisor as we exited our car upon arrival. Our butler was waiting at our villa. We stayed in villa #219. The villa was amazing! We took many pictures of the beautiful sunsets from our private pool. The food couldn't have been better. We did take an excursion as mentioned by other reviews. It was rather expensive, but you get what you pay for. Our excursion involved trips to La Digue and Praslin via helicopter and boat. Everything was coordinated for us. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Our butler was exceptional. His name is Kiran. He went above and beyond our expectations on a daily basis. He was very helpful with suggestions and took care of things that we didn't expect. (I asked if he could do something about the humidity as a joke and the next thing I know we had a fan delivered and set up outside by our daybed.) He also have an anniversary cake prepared for us to top off our candlelight dinner on the beach. Almost every day Kiran managed to surprise us with something special. I would highly recommend Maia to anyone visiting Seychelles. They did everything imaginable (and then some) to make our vacation exceptional. The bar has been set high for every vacation we take in the future. Thank you Maia, and especially thank you Kiran.
We had such a unique, amazing, unforgettable experience at Maia. The concept is a bit unusual where all food is inclusive in the package and each villa has a butler. Butler caters to your needs whenever, wherever you are. Ours was Gina! And she was the best ever and made our stay worthwhile! All in all the experience was amazing with good food, pleasant ambiance, however, we didnt see people at all. As it is extremely private. I would recommend it for honeymooners or people that just want to escape the crowd. Adding to that the only negative thing was that the beach excursions were extremely Overpriced! Thank god that this is our third time in Seychelles and we are familiar with the prices! Watch out cause its a rip off and i would recommend that you do your own research first! All in all i enjoyed the experience.
After Raffles my friends and I stayed at Maia hotel to try a different resort. Maia has a completely different concept then any resort we've been too. It's extremely private and every villa has their own butler that deals with you during your entire stay. Other than that they have a very interesting mentality when it comes to food where you can have anything whether your breakfast for dinner or lunch for breakfast and so on and so forth which we totally enjoyed although we haven't mixed our meals during the day. We had the best butler in the resort and I can truly say if I ever come back to the resort i will definitely ask for my dear friend Gina and no one else. She was very well prepared and honestly was more as a friend than a butler. She even surprised me with such a wonderful cake for my birthday which was a couple of days before we arrived that was extremely sweet of her and I love her for the little thoughtful things she has done for us. The resort as I mentioned is extremely private where you can't see your next door villa which is excellent for certain people. One thing I disliked about the resort was the excursion prices they were extremely overpriced and I'm sorry to say this if it were our 1st time to the island we would've easily gone with it but again I felt it was a total ripoff. We're lucky that it wasn't our first time to the island and we had our connections on the island to get such amazing deals and actually the deal we got for one full day (a big boat) for island hopping was still less than the half day price given to us by the resort. All in all it's a luxurious resort and is extremely suitable for both couples and friends. I would just have to ask the resort to have some kind of entertainment for us youngsters that still enjoy a little party! Thanks again for a wonderful and memorable stay.
It's just an excellent hotel. Located in a secluded romantic place. Great service. We had a beautiful personal butler. Large cozy villas. A wonderful restaurant, with a fine selection of dishes and a good wine list. If you want a solitary romantic vacation, then you should come here. Many thanks to all the hotel staff. We spent wonderful days here!
we were considering the MAIA resort and the Four Season for our vacation in Seychell.Luckyly, Diana at the reservation office at The Maia resort,convinced me to come to The Maia,saying "You will always remember your stay at the Maia".Indeed she was so right.This hotel is realy Paradise.The excellent food,the butlers service(ask for Anton),that prepares for you the outside bath with flowers every day and of course the kind service you receive at the resaurant,on the beach or in the buggy on your way to or from your villa.The villa we had(202) was beautiful with an amazing view.All in all it was the most memorable vacation we ever had.The highest value for our money compared to any luxury hotel we ever stayed.
Jackie and I stayed at The Maia resort for two weeks in March 2016. It was such a fabulous experience we decided to stay for another two weeks this March (returning during April). We requested the same beach villa 101, and the same butler, Baadshah and as luck would have it, the management were able to arrange this without fuss. It feels like Baadshah is now one of the family, nothing was too much trouble for him. Since retuning we decided to make comments on trip advisor, and first of all read other guests comments. Whereas most of the notes spoke of exceptional levels of service, food quality and general standards, there were some negative comments too. We cannot understand this as we could not find anything to complain about. We are definitely considering coming to the Seychelles again next year, and after studying the brochures on other islands and other hotels we are afraid to chose something different to The Maia as everything is perfect there. The danger is to go and stay somewhere else and spend a fortnight saying "we wish we'd stayed at The Maia" Highlights of The Maia, (in no particular order). Location, Service, Food, Friendly, courteous staff, Baadshah our friendly butler, for whom, nothing is too much trouble, Fabulous almost private beach, Spa, Complimentary scuba dive, Extensive menu. - almost anything you want to eat, Security, etc. etc. etc.
The most beautiful Resort and Spa on Mahe Island, All-inclusive private peninsula. We were spoilt from the minute we arrived, with VIP treatment. The 'whatever, whenever, wherever' concept made it a once in a lifetime experience. We were spoilt for choice with the selection of food on offer from fresh sushi, freshest seafood, to your own personal chef preparing a barbecue on the beach with candlelight while watching the sun set. Maia Spa treatments with a difference in the forest with sounds and freshness of nature. Private wine tasting in the Wine Room was special too. Sip Champagne while watching the sunset from your private villa in a bubble bath fragranced with fresh flower petals, or from your very own private swimming pool. An ultimate experience in luxury, relaxation, tranquility, and indulgence.❤️
