No words can describe the great experience, hospitality and customised services. It was an expensive stay, but was worth every single penny. Will certainly recommend and visit again and again I am hooked with Raffiles for life.

We were lucky enough to stay at Raffles on Praslin and enjoyed a wonderful stay in their Beachfront 2 bedroom villa. Greeted with a very warm welcome from the beginning right through to the end of our stay. The beauty of this resort is that they have successfully found the perfect balance between the tropical nature of Seychelles and all... More

Amazing special care given to each client, personal butler and swimming pool. variety and quality of food at breakfast and dinner is outstanding. For a nice romantic or even family trip, if you can afford it, it is the best you can get. the value for money is extremely fair.

I've stayed in Villa 191, which the view is stunning. The hotel staff are all knowledgable and serving you with their heart! Hotel location is a bit on the down side, but given you can drive and their free parking, it's acceptable. Overall speaking, Excellent! Strongly recommended.

We also would like to thank our witnesses (The Evans family) for playing such a big part in our day and agreeing to be our witnesses. We landed on Mahe after 11 hours of flying and a... More

My husband and I stayed at the Raffles in Praslin back in April 2014. The resort is blessed with the natural beauty of the estate it occupies. Villas are built on the hillside, with granite mountain as the backdrop and a view of beautiful turquoise ocean and white sandy beach in front. We loved the design and plantation inside the... More
