Maia Luxury Resort

By: Jeff Cowan

Maia Luxury Resort & Spa far exceeded our expectations when we stayed there in late January. This is a fantastic getaway destination, a real romantic island hideaway, on a perfect private beach.

Our villa could only be described as large, extremely well furnished with high quality materials. Our king sized bed was very comfortable, something you don't always find even in the best five star resorts.

It also included an ice machine, and an ipod!!.

What we really enjoyed was the privacy, yet the open air feel to the villa, and our own infinity pool. We sat on the veranda on the day beds and enjoyed the ever changing wonderful view.

A personal butler, seems to be a must have nowadays in top resorts, and our butler was outstanding, never in your face, very unobtrusive, very willing, full of smiles, and above all very efficient.

Also I expected the butler to be male, but our lady butler, added several thoughtful feminine touches, which included flowers, and an unexpected and very romantic dinner for a very special occasion, that we still don't ever remember mentioning!!

The beach at the Maia Luxury Resort & Spa is very private, and quite beautiful, what we liked as much as anything was this it is small, yet still a decent enough size to walk about on. The other great thing about the beach was the fact that you could snorkel the reef off the beach, and we should add the snorkeling was pretty good, lots of brightly colored fish.

The public areas of the hotel, by that I mean the pool, restaurant are also right next to the beach, and very important for me, there is no shortage of sun loungers, and a plentiful supply of towels, cold drinks, cold flannels. Again the quality of the staff at the Maia Resort & Spa was of the highest order.

The food in the restaurant was excellent, and you could leave the menu, and order whatever you fancied, which the chefs would produce for you. We saw people doing exactly this, though I can't for the life of me think why, because the menu was very good on its own!!

This is a real romantic island hideaway, on a special private beach, and we both recommend you to the Maia Luxury Resort & Spa, on Mahe in the Seychelles
