simply amazing, wonderful, incredible the resort has no mistakes , on the contrary ; it surprises you with things that you never experienced before . Dining at room or restaurant is absolutely possible and depends on your choice . a butler is assigned to serve you in the whole stay ... whatever you want ... at anytime is served to you. amazing ,,,, I would love to stay in this hotel again
We visited this exceptional property whilst also visiting the Four Seasons and Banyan Tree. Maia offers a very distinctive and high quality guest experience, just as those other two fantastic properties do. However, Maia is perhaps a more luxurious and private experience that might particularly be favoured by honeymooners or discerning travellers seeking a very high end stay that’s a little more exclusive. The views from some of the suites are breathtaking and whether your style is Hollywood A lister or Bond villain, you will not be disappointed!
Recap of my Seychelles stay during my birthday. Having stayed at the top 3 resorts Four Seasons, Raffles and Maia have really given me some insights of whats important to me in a luxury accommodation. First of all the overall appearance and elegance to it. For this you need attention to detail (no old flowers, dirty items, broken tiles, cozy feeling etc) I experienced this attention to detail in both the Four Seasons as well as the Maia Resort but not so much at the Raffles where indeed you could find the things mentioned above. Personalization and greeting. Honestly the Maia resort stood out on this one. Managers greeting you at the car park and you will be guided straight to your villa and welcomed by your butler. Four seasons had a nice lobby in which they greeted you and layer on brought you to the villa. Raffles did the same whereas the lobby was not as impressive. Surprises. Since it was my birthday it was a nice gesture of the raffles to bring a cake to my room the day of arrival. The four seasons made sure to acknowledge it at breakfast. No special arrangements were made at the Maia. Food. Honestly even though being an all inclusive property (in which you would expect lower quality food) the meals at the Maia were by far the best. You could order any kind of meal (breakfast for lunch, lunch for dinner etc) any time of the day without even leaving the room. The four seasons disappointed with the food especially meat I have eaten there. If anything I would recommend seafood. The Raffles did not stand out but had a nice selection of food available. The breakfast was nice and upon request they brought you additional items not shown on the buffet as well. Private pools. In each of the properties I had a private pool. Thinking the four seasons can't be beaten with its infinity pool which you also saw from the bathroom and was overlooking the ocean I got proven wrong. The Maia not only had a bigger main infinity pool but also offered a section with a huge tub surrounded by water and lounge chairs inside of it. That really made it extra special. The pool at the Raffles was more of a plunge pool size. Beaches. All of them are nice don't get me wrong but the four seasons beach was exceptionally beautiful closely followed by the Maia one and then the Raffles which has a nice beach but doesn't keep it as clean as the other ones. Fazit. Whenever I come back I would book the Maia over both of the others but I am sure you won't have a bad time in either of them.
This place is amazing, it is more than a resort but more a concept! The view is beyond amazing, especially if you have a higher villa, infinite pool in each villa, absolute privacy and more than amazing butler; he/she will take care of the villa, make you a welcome drink when you arrive, make you breakfast in the villa's kitchen, they are extremely detail oriented and will make your stay more than excellent. It is totally an amazing experience and if you are in Seychelles and can afford it then you should definitely try it!
It is very expensive so it is not easy to still deliver value for money but they do! Every wish is fulfilled even before it pops up in your own mind. Beautiful villas come with a butler who is to take everything out of your hands. Something we, in Europe, are not used to but felt comfortable with in a day :). Also the management is a personal approach and interest. Excellent food from different world kitchens (Sushi/Sashimi is the best, Tsukuji market in Tokyo has a longer supply line than the local sourced fish here:)). Great Spa. And for us very important; the diving centre they use, and is inclusive, is top of the bill. We were there a week but had a feeling we were on a 2 week holiday, so relaxed!
This place omg!!! I had no words to describe when I entered the villa.. the buttler was amazing..the room is amazing and very big and love the sound system as we could listen to our own music..the best surprise my husband gave me... I couldn’t ask for anything else as we also got veg menu specially designed for us..the spa was amazing and the treatment I choose was off the hook..it was just so exclusive..the best experience and the best one ever got in mylife..would go back again n recommend anyone going for honeymoon..just relax, enjoy eat and sleep...even till now miss the place so much!! Love the no reception area haha!!
Although weather was average this time, we again had avery nice 9 days at Maia. All in all relaxing, private, nice food and dinner arrangements, excellent spa and lovely garden. Staff is close to client. Pricing is high but meets expectations. Beach cleaning needs improvement, especially concerning public people, who sometimes drain food garbage after having leisure beach time. Glass and metal can are not only ugly but potentially dangerous. All in all we keep very good memories. We may come back next year. Thank you again butler B., Karl and Lionel for the efforts.
My husband and I spent 7 days in this beautiful resort and absolutely enjoyed it! Very nice architecture and landscape. We had an ocean view Villa on the hill - marvelous view and very quiet. The food is excellent. And the staff very customer-oriented and flexible. Especially our butler Michelle (every villa has a private butler taking care of everything) was perfect. She surprised us every day with a special decoration/drink/snack etc. Fabulous beach and snorkeling directly infront of the hotel area. Three times a week there is live music at dinner with international songs - we recommended the management to have more local music for a little bit more seychelles feeling ;) We really enjoyed this perfect week. Thank you MAIA.
I've had the privilege of travelling the world, staying at some great hotels, but this is the first time that I've felt compelled to write a review.....Having spent the previous five nights in the fabulous H Hotel, Beau Vallon, we were expecting great things from Maia, I'm pleased to say that we weren't disappointed. Everything about the Maia experienced surpassed out expectations. We were in Villa 217, a perfect location for great views and total privacy. It seems unfair to highlight certain staff, as everyone was excellent, but a special shout goes out to our personal butler Buddika, and the very special Bridget, both of whom looked after us superbly. We are so grateful for the special effort that was laid on for our 25th Wedding Anniversary dinner - thanks to all at Maia, we hope to come back and enjoy your outstanding hospitality again in the future!!

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.
