As the newly opened luxury resort (2011) it delivers amazing facilities, ranging from the dreamy villas, stunning spa and restaurants. The hillside location offers spectacular views and at the same time very remote. This means you rely on buggy's to take you around the resort and the need of booking a taxi in advance to take you any location outside.... More

The Raffles is absolutely stunning! If you like places like this, beautiful and luxurious but with very little to do and do not care about a hefty price tag I absolutely recommend it. All bungalows have their own pools, are big and lovely decorated. The beach is beautiful and you can do some nice snorkeling right there. Plenty of sunbeds... More

We experienced excellent service at the Raffles Praslin. The staff were very friendly. Concierge Kenny was our go-to man; he had all our needs and trips organised faultlessly. The room was very well furnished with excellent linen. The room was very well maintained by Moluk. The views from our bed, balcony and plunge pool were superb. The beach was small,... More

We came to raffles for our honeymoon and were blown away by pretty much everything! Firstly, the rooms, pools and common area are all absolutely glorious and perfectly maintained. There were no signs of anything being run down or old. To get around there are buggies driven by staff who are only ever a phone call aay and theere within... More

We stayed at Raffles Hotel for 8 days as part of a 15-day visit to the Seychelles. Raffles is an excellent hotel. It is superbly designed on a hill and our villa was the height of luxury with its plunge pool, spaciousness, king size bed, service and a view to die for. We either walked round the complex or took... More

A great resort to just kick back and relax with uninterrupted views and privacy. Excellent beach front and attentive staff who enjoy their work and are very helpful. But the food quality is poor and over priced.

I wouldn't normally spend this amount of money on a hotel, but as this is The Seychelles, you must spend a lot of money for a good hotel. Also as The Seychelles is so far from Australia this will probably be the only time we visit, therefore I wanted it to be worthwhile and relaxing. Well relaxing and enjoyable it... More
