New! Residence On The Rocks, Seychelles. Some 100 yards, as the crow flies, uphill from the last of the Banyan Tree Hill villa on a special access road which will serve the residential area. However linked also to the public areas via standard electromobile path.
The two-story main house is on a relatively flat portion of the site with large  granite/rock formation providing privacy on either side. The guest house and the large pool are on elevated concrete decks infront and just below the rock formations. The whole property is surrounded by a high perimeter wall camouflaged in the vegetation but providing privacy and security. All front areas have a fantastic view of Intendance Bay and the breaking  waves can be easily heard.

The two-story main building has a central court yard separating the upstairs bedroom/downstairs lounge part from the upstairs bedroom/downstairs dining room/kitchen section.
There is a separate guest house some 30 yards to the side of the central pool. The design is Creole in nature with some 450 square metres of covered area.  The main building and guest house are surrounded in front and on the side  with the typical Creole style flat roofed verandah in a colonnade design.
Opposite the guest house, on the other side of the pool, on a granite rock,  there is a Gazebo/sala, which can be used for outdoor dining but also for  massages and spa treatments. In a rock cave  next to the Gazebo there is a large Jacuzzi which gets its water  supply from the main pool. The pool is of the infinity/overflow design on three sides and on the southern  end the pool is encompassing a granite wall.

Creole style is considered a blend of many cultures: French, Chinese African, Indian and English. This was taken into consideration in importing a range of materials for the interior decor and finishings. The objective was to recreate the colonial splendour of the 20s and 30s. This is elaborated through the overall architecture, finishing details furnishing and  decoration. A stay at the residence represents a trip into nostalgia.  The back up infrastructure and facilities however offer the latest fivestar  standards. The above combined with the breathtaking view of the lagoon below and the  lush garden, represents a perfect match of the old and the new.

There are 16 large/old Haveli/Palace doors which were brought in from India and since they are of slightly different sizes the residence had to be built around them. These French Doors combined with heavy insulation of the roof areas allow for the constant breeze to flow through all parts of the house and offer  surroundings with comfortable temperatures for most of the year – even with - out the AC units being activated.
• The floors are all of recycled old Burma teak
• The colonial metal windows were imported from Kenya
•The cast iron rail supports was acquired in Burma/Myanmas
• Most of  the furniture pieces are antique British colonial items imported from India and Burma
• All carpets were woven and bought in a traditional indian tribal structured cooperative.
Many of the decor items were collected by the owners over a period of 30 years in Central Africa and South East Asia, they include valuable tribal/ethnic art  pieces

Common Questions
Do we share the villa? click to close
No. You will not share the villa with another party. The villa is exclusively yours. If a larger villa offers a lower bedroom rate category, the villa will remain exclusively yours but the unrented bedrooms will be locked off.
For example, a 5 bedroom villa that offers a 3 bedroom rate will be the exclusive use of the guest but two bedrooms and their en-suite bathrooms will be locked off. Capacity is capped at 2 guests per bedroom.

"Isle Blue is everything they say they are. They were a pleasure to deal with and were very responsive and informative. The pictures on their website are exactly what you end up getting and they provide full concierge service throughout your stay. My family and I had an amazing time and before we even returned home, we went to the Isle Blue website to check out their inventory for our next vacation. They really are just that good!"
