MAIA Villas

Private Luxury Seychelles Villas

At MAIA the thirty private villas are positioned for maximum views and maximum privacy. Perched between greenery and granite or bordering the beach, and spread over three pavilions in a private garden space, each villa blends into the landscape and indulges with luxury and design. A private infinity pool, sunken outdoor bath, oversized glass sliding doors, a glass-walled rainforest shower and bespoke design-touches inspire but never distract from rosé pink sunsets and cerulean seas.

The main pavilion features an air-conditioned high-ceilinged bedroom centered around an extra length king size bed. Room elements like hand shaped scalloped wooden flooring and onyx bowls set in hammered copper alcoves are complemented by buttery soft décor. The bedroom opens up with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors inviting guests to step into the view. Extending down past generous closet space, two impressive stone carved sinks are framed by suspended mirrors and views that remain the centre of attention.

A second open sided pavilion is a romantic setting for candlelit dinners or sunrise breakfasts, while a giant daybed for two is perfect for sun-break naps and, the pre-stocked to your preference mini-bar, creates a feeling of home. Beneath the fringed thatch of a third pavilion, bubbles in a sunken bath and in your glass, Hermès bath collection amenities, floating petals and Mahé island views invite guests to redefine slow-soaks. 

The villa’s private infinity pool flows into the panoramic views with refreshing stone-fountain replenished water. The pool is long enough for gentle morning lengths and intimate enough for champagne sunsets.

Taking inspiration from the Far East and the African continent with European sensibilities, the culture blending design is reminiscent of the Seychelles’ varied past. Bespoke touches are a constant feature with wrought ironwork, artisan carpentry and stone masonry that is a tactile sensory feast. 

Thread counts are high, Hermès amenities are maxi-sized and WiFi is unlimited. The kind of comforts you’d expect or the kind that you could get used to. 

MAIA’s thirty villas are positioned throughout the thirty acres of private peninsula, each with a different Mahé perspective. The 13 Ocean Panoramic villas climb throughout the hilly gardens and look out onto bay, beach and ocean. 17 Signature Villas not only benefit from enhanced MAIA luxury touches such as late checkouts and private yoga sessions, but are positioned with a choice of either sweeping ocean panoramas or hidden in the gardens with direct beach access.
