Banyan Tree Spa

There are opulent spas located throughout the world in the most exotic locales; and then there is Banyan Tree Spa. Situated in the Republic of Seychelles – an island country in the Indian Ocean about 1,000 miles east of Africa and spanning an archipelago of 115 islands – Banyan Tree Spa’s pristine tropical setting is unlike any other in the world.

Boasting a backdrop of majestic granite mountains and offering several luxury hillside pavilions nestled within a virgin jungle, Banyan Tree Spa affords its guests the luxury of experiencing nature at its best. The spa’s world-class therapists receive their training at the prestigious Banyan Tree Spa Academies in Indonesia, and are particularly known for their grace, attentiveness and devotion to client needs. The spa’s focus on the garden-setting concept is directly in line with its focus on Eastern therapies, holistic medicine and promotion of spiritual, mental and physical harmony. One treatment in particular at Banyan Tree Spa – the Royal Banyan – is popular with guests who seek the gentlest of touch and the deepest of relaxation. The Royal Banyan treatment utilizes an East-meets-West technique in which a therapist uses an herbal pouch dipped in warm sesame oil to iron out muscular tension and improve blood circulation. Another treatment known as the Rainmist is a steam bath experience where clients indulge in aromatherapy oil-scented mist; the Rainmist makes for an excellent prelude to additional tropical treatments.

Much like the sacred tree from which it derives its name, Banyan Tree Spa is a sacred place; a “low-tech, high-touch” sanctuary from the bustling, over-stimulated world. With an extraordinarily successful track record, Banyan Tree Spa has opened franchises in the Maldives, Bangkok, Shanghai and several other world-class locales. For the spa-enthusiast, a visit to one is mandatory.
