I recommend kayaking over to the beach to the left of the resort, it's quite an exhilarating paddle across the water and we lucky enough to be greeted with some surprise champagne to enjoy whilst admiring the view back to Maia

Location & Directions

Mahe, Seychelles

Maia Luxury Resort & Spa overlooks Anse Louis beach on the southwest coast of Mahé in the Seychelles, the main island of the Republic of Seychelles.

When to go

Situated just south of the equator, the Seychelles have a warm tropical climate. The consistently warm tropical weather makes the Seychelles a good year round destination.

There is little fluctuation in warmth, with temperatures ranging from 24C to 31C all year round. From May to October a southeast trade wind can bring marginally cooler weather and fresh breezes. From November to March the northwest monsoon wind blows, typically raising temperature and humidity. December and January are the wettest months, but the rain falls in short sharp bursts before the sun comes out again.
