The 47-foot twin-hulled catamaran Banyan Lagoon I is the newest addition to Banyan Tree Seychelles, giving guests the freedom and comfort of exploring the inner islands of Seychelles with ease. With this, the Banyan Tree Group adds a valuable vessel to its growing collection, which includes the Turkish gullet Banyan Velaa in the Maldives, classic yacht Pi Marn in Phuket, and rice barge Apsara in Bangkok.

Swift and smooth, modern and luxurious, Banyan Lagoon I is a dream holiday vessel which extends guests’ experiences from shore to sea. Able to accommodate parties of four on overnight cruises, the catamaran is fully staffed by a personal host and skipper with all the amenities and luxuries expected from the Asian hospitality brand. The catamaran is available from Euro 2,500++ per night, inclusive full-board meals, land transfers on Mahe and landing fees within the inner islands.

Designed For Pleasure
Designed and built in France by renowned naval architects, Banyan Lagoon I is purpose-built for the ultimate cruise experience. Dynamic design from deck to galley ensures panoramic views from every side of the yacht, allowing spacious areas for dining, lounging and sea activities. The bow trampoline offers carefree access to ocean sprays, while the forward-facing flybridge offers ideal freedom under the shadow of the 19-metre sail. Fishing, snorkelling and diving equipment are available for complimentary usage upon early reservations.

Two guest cabins are well ventilated by portholes and hatches, allowing natural light as well as discrete views of the waves. The aft cabin is fit for royalty with a queen-sized bed as well as two metres of standing headroom space, for maximum comfort and freedom on the seas. An attached suite contains a complete assortment sofa, desk, separate hanging locker and bathroom with separate shower. The second cabin offers a double bed and adjoining bathroom, and all sleeping areas are fully air-conditioned.

Cruise To Adventures
The 115 pristine granitic islands of the Seychelles are one of the world’s greatest treasures, formed as far back as 150 million years ago. Scattered across the Indian Ocean just below the equator, there are pre-historic corals and rock oases, nestled in the bluest waters of the imagination.

The inner islands of Seychelles rest on a shallow plateau with prolific marine life and excellent PADI diving facilities available to access a multitude of dive sites. There are 43 inner islands – two granitic and one coralline. Within the inner islands alone, five Marine Parks are within easy reach – Curiese, Ile Cocos, Silhouette, Ste. Anne, and Port Launay/Baie Ternay.

For fishing enthusiasts, head to the open seas for unparalleled deep-sea fishing. Over 1.4 million square kilometers of fishing grounds offer catches of marlin, sailfish, giant barracuda, and other prize game fish.
