The privately-owned plantation-style Residence on the Rocks is the ultimate honeymoon hideaway. Perched in a luxuriant forest overlooking the palm-fringed coral beach and turquoise lagoon of Intendance Bay, South of Mahé, it boasts a two-bedroom Main House, a one-bedroom Guest House, a infinity pool, and a gazebo for al fresco dining and spa treatments. You check-in at the 5* Banyan Tree Hotel next door and shuttle to your retreat by golf buggy. You get full access to the hotel restaurants, bars and spa as well as its services: room service, daily housekeeping, pool maintenance, guests' bathroom supplies, security patrols/CCTV system, golf buggy shuttle to the hotel and the beach (5 minutes) as well as a private butler and personal chef upon request. The villa is entirely independent of the hotel whilst benefiting from its 5* services.
Price: From 2000 euros per couple per night, on a B&B basis, including butler service. Visit villasdemaitre.com.
