Hidden amongst primary forest vegetation on a hill side between Anse Intendance and Taka Maka Bay (Intendance beach being a few minutes walk from the Residence). It overlooks the beaches of both of these bays. The privately owned property is located on the Banyan Tree Estate and is partially managed by the resort.
A caretaker couple lives on the premises and is available on a 24/7 basis to take care of the daily needs of the guests. It offers a hideaway type of setting which, in the Seychelles context, is unmatched in terms of privacy and exclusivity.
The individually designed and decorated rooms make for a distinctly different life style experience compared to what any standardized hotel product can offer. The colonial/creole style villa reflects the splendor of a bygone era with the furnishings and décor consisting of antique pieces wherever possible.
A yearning for the human touch and the history which comes with some of the recycled and hand crafted items was also incorporated in the overall design and construction process. To the owners luxury was not about merely a logo glued on a piece of a logo printed on a piece of stationary, but finding a home for range of colonial furniture pieces and eclectic objets d’art collected over a life time of travel. The end result is a product with a powerful and unique emotional appeal .
The residence with its four bedrooms, of which two in cottages with separate access pathways, enhances family life and interaction and makes for a perfect retreat for multi-generational groupings. For any upscale group of travellers looking for a product offering the ultimate in privacy, exclusivity and luxury, Residence on the Rocks is a one of a kind product.
Excursions and stays on outer islands can be easily booked and renting a car is recommended and can be arranged.
The villa provides freedom as far as exploring the wide range of beaches along the main coastal roads of Mahe or to do some shopping and bring back some favorite food items or beverages for the butler to work with. There are a range of restaurants within easy driving distance of the residence which make it possible to sample the local cuisine for casual luncheons or diners (breakfast is included at the main resort restaurant or on a room service basis).
