We had the chance to spend 3 excellent nights at Raffles in a one of their family Villa at sea level, with an easy beach access. We discovered and enjoyed their new menu concept of Curieuse Restaurant. It was a lovely gathering with friends. The main pool was stunning. There was very pleasant selection of un-motorised water sports. During paddle... More

We felt unique and special guests at Raffles. The hotel is located near Anse Takamaka, which is quite beautiful. Rooms are wonderful and offer a great sight over the ocean. The spa in a beautiful experience. Recommended.

We stayed at the Raffles resort in Praslin to celebrate our wedding anniversary in June 2014. The hotel fit most of the criteria we had wished for: It is romantic with fantastic views of the ocean and the other islands, the villas are spacious, modern and very well equipped with no noise at night (except of the birds singing) and...

My husband and I have just returned from a 10 night stay at Raffles for our honeymoon. It was absolutely fantastic (almost from) start to finish. My tip to anyone looking to travel in June is to make sure you fly from Mahe and not to get the ferry - the sea is very rough and we had a dreadful... More

We stayed 7 nights at the resort and had a wonderful time. Our bay-view villa was upgraded to ocean-view, which was amazing! The accomondations and facilities were overall great. What seems to make this resort stand out from other luxurious resorts is the nice and relaxed atmosphere the staff somehow managed to create, despite how busy they all must have... More

This is a difficult review to compose. If given the option we would rate our stay a 3.5. The physical plant of the resort is beautiful and our accommodations, a one bedroom panoramic suite, were fantastic- enormous living room, dining room, bedroom, dressing area and bathroom, with huge terrace area (small plunge pool) and sweeping uninterrupted views of the bay...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
From across the continents of Europe and Asia, the legend of Raffles now extends to the enchanting islands of the Seychelles, cradled at the heart of the Indian Ocean. Raffles Praslin Seychelles presents an all-villa Seychelles luxury resort nestled within the stunning island of Praslin that was once declared the rediscovered Garden of Eden. This Seychelles hotel seeks to present guests with an escape where warm native Seychellois hospitality is infused with the enchanting touch of Raffles. Surrender to the sun-kissed allure of Anse Takamaka’s powdered sands, on to which spill the eighty-six spacious villas fashioned to assure lavish comfort. These private abodes offer a choice of whispering, opal-hued oceans and lush green hills. Be immersed in the relaxing therapies of the exclusive Raffles Spa, which coupled with the soothing embrace of unsullied nature, rejuvenate both body and spirit. Taste the distinguished flavours of the breezy Curieuse Seafood Restaurant, the local cuisine and Mediterranean delights of Losean or the light comfort food by the Pool Bar. ... more   less
