We understand that no one aims to come in second place; there is no recognition for mediocrity. We at Five Star Alliance understand better than anyone the importance of offering the most luxurious resorts in the world, so we notice what’s going on in the industry, and it matters to us, because it matters to you. We work hard to offer you the best in the industry, and we’d like to welcome you to our second blog series where we feature the best and most luxurious resorts in the world. But don’t take our word for it. These resorts have been recognized as the best in the business and have made the prestigious Condé Nast Traveler Gold List 2012.

The Condé Nast Traveler Gold List 2012 is the eighth of their annual lists, and the hotels chosen by their team of editors and experts are the best for service, food, location, rooms, leisure facilities, ambiance and design.

The Banyan Tree Seychelles is featured on the Gold List 2012: Best for leisure facilities. This luxury hotel is nestled in the Intendance Bay, a 30 minute drive from the Mahe International Airport. This 60-villa resort provides visitors the option to choose where they stay since about half of the villas are on the beach while the other half are on the palm-forested slopes overlooking the sea. All of the villas feature private plunge pools, indoor baths, and verandahs. The Banyan Tree Seychelles is recognized for its extensive list of leisure facilities which include opportunities to play tennis, swim in the infinity pool, fine dine at 4 restaurants on site, go fishing, diving, island hopping, and more!
