Perfect holidays!

I highly recommand the Bayan Tree! We had an amazing week here. Service is perfect, the villas are beautifull and the food was excellent. The reef is close, You can see sharks and turtles after swimming only 3/5 minutes! Habeeb at the reception was very helpfull, We had great massages with Atika and Chacha! The team at the restaurant was very welcoming. We felt at home in a little paradise!

Dont stay if youre return flight is evening

Emirate of Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The first 3 days were amazing, the morning fishing trip is the best we ever had it is really worth it even if a bit expensive, khaleel who took care of our room during our stay decorated our room every day very beautifully he is the sweetest BUT if youre flight is in the evening like ours DONT STAY HERE, we requested late check out for any charge they ask even if at full room price because we had a 1 year old with us they told us they are fully booked but on every site online including theirs they still had 6 rooms?? they told us they can give us a room for 100 USD which we happily accepted after they moved us to that room the shock began the room is 3 by 3 meters filled with insects and Geckos appartenly this is a day use room and apparently they upgrade some dayusers of their choise to the resort rooms which we pay over 700 USD for, we payed over 5000 USD for 3 days here and this is how they treat us on our last day ruining our whole stay by bringing us to a 3 by 3 m room because they gave our room to a day user who was suppose to stay in the day use room and yes they told us the 6 available resort rooms are used by dayusers after 4 hours of arguing mrs noha came she was very nice to us and did everything she could and managed to give us our room back overall this last experience ruined our stay we had a booking for next months for banyan tree seychelles but we cancelled it never ever going to stay in any banyan tree again
