"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.
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.
"A great end to my birthday getaway!"
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!
"A perfect 10!"
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.
