"Amazing Experience.... !!"
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!!

"PERFECT LUXURY BEACH HOLIDAY IN SEYCHELLES"
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
"Holiday for my wife and I "
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 😔
"Great location. Large, private villa. Amazing butler."
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.
