I Want That Room

This week, we're ogling the delights of the signature villas at MAIA Luxury Resort & Spa in the Seychelles. Set on a private peninsula on the south-west coast of Mahé Island, these are thatched cottages with a movie-star twist. Each once comes with its own 25ft infinity pool boasting uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean and an outdoor sunken bath with speaker system, for guests to bathe and party under the stars. There's an adjacent thatched gazebo with a king-sized daybed, bar and dining area and indoors, the villas are tastefully designed with exotic woods, teak furniture and Thai silks.

Should you struggle with the arduous routine of pool-sunbed-pool, a private butler is on-hand to help out. This rather obliging person can help prepare a Daily Maia Signature bath of your choice or provide you with a painting kit, with 30 acres of award-winning gardens and the pristine sea as your muse. Frankly, it sounds a bit unreal. But amazing.

Grab a look inside the villa by clicking on an image below and tell us about your favourite hotel rooms on Twitter or in the comments section.
