After a week in Mahe we had a tremendous time in our Villa at Raffles. It was the utmost pleasure to stay here. Staff was brilliant, services were excelent. Well, in one word - terrific experience. I couldn't believe that staff offered us temporal room, because we arrived sooner.

Situated on Praslin, the resort is thoughtfully designed with total privacy offered to all guests. We had an ocean view villa. Moreover it is east facing, so you can see the first rays on the clean ocean and white sands. Curiuese restaurant was a nice experience. Anse lazio, a nearby beach is the most beautiful beach I have seen. Only... More

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. As we arrived at the hotel very early in the morning the room wasn’t ready yet. So the friendly hotel staff brought us to the breakfast... More

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.

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
