We honeymooned at Raffles and it was overall, pretty spectacular. When we arrived on Pralin we were met by Nigel who took us to the resort. We saw him several times during our stay and he was the standout star member of staff to us, an absolutely lovely chap. He offered to stop at a shop if we had wanted... More

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at this hotel, set on arguably one of the most beautiful islands in the Seychelles. The staff were amenable and helpful in recommending places to visit. Trips to the neighbouring islands, such as La Digue and Curieuse are straightforward and a must-see for outstanding natural beauty and their varied ecosystems. Our most memorable trip to... More

I let this motion video say what we felt in Raffles. Simply the best. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SMPoIuRy8U Nearly 1,700 feet of sugar sands front this tropical enclave of 86 sea- or mountain-view villas with massive bathrooms, large outdoor living spaces, private plunge pools, and butler service. For those who choose to emerge from their exclusive hideaways, complimentary water sports, a lovely spa,... More

Raffles Praslin compares quite favorably with their sister Raffles hotels in Singapore & Siem Reap - while the room rates are pricey, all of the staff here (including Kenny, Carolin, Lisa, Edmond, & others from the Ukraine, Beijing & elsewhere whose names we unfortunately didn't catch) were uniformly friendly & helpful, taking very apparent pride in their work. The villas... More
