The swimming pool view at the Banyan Tree Hotel and Spa in Seychelles http://www.banyantree.com/en/seychelles/overview is nestled in Intendance Bay with spectacular views overlooking the Indian Ocean with a raised-level infinity structure complete with a narrow point jutting out above the beach. The pool looks like it's floating on the sea, with palms drooping over its sides and waves crashing on huge granite boulders below it. Banyan Tree Seychelles offers 60 villas with each having at least one private pool with an ocean view. They have recently complete Double Pool Villas which offer two pools each.
All pools feature shallow water lounging areas in addition to a large swimming area. They have been surfaced entirely in one-of-a-kind glass tiles, which have been specifically designed for JADE MOUNTAIN.
Each of the infinity pools has its own individually designed glass tile color scheme which is then carried on into the individual bathrooms, giving each suite its own unique - and rather bold - personality. The glass tile texture is complex in reflective and prismatic ways with each piece of tile unique due to their custom hand crafted fabrication.
The infinity pools are equipped with fibre optics to illuminate them at night. Guests have the option of allowing the system to cycle through a range of colours or setting it to one particular shade.
Jade Mountain was conceived as a place in which guests would be exposed to a carefully orchestrated sensory experience. The infinity pools are integral to this. As a visual element, water flowing over a vanishing edge serves to draw the view into the room, linking the view with water, and water with sky and land, sun and stars.”
