Luxury Seychelles Resort Gets New ‘Boys Toys’

By P. Joseph

Yacht owners and charterers visiting the MAIA Luxury Resort & Spa in the Seychelles now have two new and exciting modes of transport to facilitate their stay and allow them to explore the stunning environs of the Indian Ocean.

The MAIA Luxury Resort & Spa, located on the southwest coast of the main island of Mahé, has purchased an amphibian boat called “sealegs”. The three-wheeled motorised skiff can transport guests from their yacht onto dry land as well as help with the loading of provisions and supplies.

As well as the new boat, the resort has been fitted with its own helipad, connecting the hotel with nearby attractions including Grande Barbe on Silhouette Island, and enabling guests to enjoy scenic flights over the whole archipelago.

Guests can also chose to arrive or depart in style from North Island and Fregate Island, both a 15 minute flight from the heart of MAIA, whilst personal butlers are on hand to ensure that all needs are catered for.

MAIA Luxury Resort & Spa, a member of Leading Hotels of the World, is a 30-villa property open to residents only. Each of its spacious villas feature the latest hi-tech facilities and have uninterrupted ocean views, a large gazebo area with kitchen bar, eating area and oversized day-bed, a 25ft infinity pool and outdoor sunken bath tub.
