We've had the pleasure of staying in a number of Raffles properties around the world and so our familiarity with the brand narrowed down choices considerably for a spot to hand our hats for a few days when easing out of an extraordinary experience on neighboring Fregate Island. Our stay at the Raffles was superlative from beginning to end. The... More

The villas are amazing, spacious, modern and with high quality furnitures. The plunge pool was very useful to cool down and the outdoor lounge area very comfortable. Everything was in perfect working condition. To sum up, the villas look exactly like on the glossy photos on the hotel website. Free, relatively fast wifi in the room is a nice touch.... More

What a fantastic privilege it was to spend our honeymoon at Raffles on Praslin. The hotel is wonderful, the staff make you feel so welcome and special and the whole experience is one to remember. This is somewhere which you need to go and stay!

I had never thought that a hotel would be so beautiful and the staff so warm and welcoming. Very much amazed with the property. The Villas are just out of the world with stunning views of the Ocean. The evening cocktail party was also great. The best part was the Veg Indian food that the Chef had prepared for us.... More

We stayed in this wonderful hotel in July this year. I have already been to many nice places and hotels on this world but the Raffles Seychelles really took it to the next level.

Stayed for three nights, and the only complaint that it wasn't long enough! Staff were wonderful and attentive across the board, the food was delicious (and the chef went above and beyond to accommodate my Vegetarian friend), the room was beautiful, and the views from our Panorama villa (that we got as a free upgrade!) absolutely flawless. Several recommendations-- try... More

We stayed for 4 nights in Raffles for my husband's 40th birthday celebration last July. We booked a bay view room and was treated to a free upgrade to a panoramic villa. The villa was perfect and the views are spectacular - you'd just want to swim in your own pool looking at the sea and the nearby Curieuse Island.... More

Raffles is the best hotel that we have ever stayed in. From the moment of our arrival, we were surprised by the level of the service and the organization. The check-in was mostly a comfortable rest on the sofa, enjoying a nice welcome drink. After receiving all the information we were driven to our villa by our private buttler. We... More

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
