Maia is a fantastic escape set in wonderful grounds with amazing views from the hilltop. The accompanying beach isn't private but it may as well be, crystal clear waters and little crabs to chase if you like that sort of thing. Great food and complete...More

For the past 10 years my husband and I have been going to the Maldives 4 times a year, yes that means 40 times in the Maldives and in the same hotel. Due to the current political situation in the Maldives we are boycotting this destination and do not plan to return unless the political regime changes. We are therefore trying to find an alternative and are considering the Seychelles, Maia resort. We both love to swim and our biggest fear is to be disappointed in terms of the quality of the water. Has anyone been to both the Seychelles and the Maldives and how does it compare especially in terms of visibility. We are setting our eyes on Maia resort simply because it is a higher end small resort and seems to be very much in tune with nature. Is it indeed private and secluded? How concerned should I be that there is only 1 restaurant, do you get that personal touch in case you want to order something special not on the menu? Is the food quality really good? The success of a hotel is of course the setting, infrastructure but mostly the service do you get that at Maia resort? Thank you.
