Although the buggies and umbrellas can take a while getting to you I would still highly recommend this place. I think, Praslin is a small and relaxed town and it kind of forces you to set yourself back in peace. I was able to do that eventually and it felt great. I would recommend getting the panoramic pool villas, gorgeous... More

All villas seem to have a sublime outlook and breathtaking views. The terrain isn't an issue if you're not a very mobile person because the buggies are always on hand to ferry guests around the resort. There's a well-equipped gym on-site too. I didn't use the spa but can say it looked the part... Not too sure what can be... More

Me and my friend have recently had the most enjoyable stay at this beautiful hotel. Our villa set up high on the hill was just simply amazing with breath-taking view over the hotel's beautiful garden and the sea. The villa was spacious with a large private outside terrace, plunge pool and an outdoor shower. Hotel has its own private beach... More

The villas are very spacious and well appointed, with huge beds, plunge pools and lovely views over the ocean. Large bathrooms, outdooor and indoor showers, good decking area etc. Apart from the lack of mp3 docking station (it is advertised online) I really couldn't fault the accomodation, and unlike some guests I didn't mind getting the buggies to and from...

It was our first time in the Seychelles and we chose Raffles for our 5 night stay in Praslin. The hotel is beautiful, the villas are well maintained and spacious. Only 40% of the villas were occupied and even so we still had to wait for buggies for up to 20 minutes on occasions in order to get around.The buggy... More

This was our first trip to the Seychelles and we were delighted to find that the villa we booked was exactly as it looked on the website. It was quite well appointed though we have experienced better elsewhere. Our villa came with its own infinity type pool and large really private deck. The aspect of our deck and the hotel... More

Stayed here for 7 days before going on to La Digue. We had booked a Panorama pool villa and were allocated suite 273 - absolutely great. The hotel wasn't too busy so we never had any of the buggie problems experienced by some. The pool restaurant was ok but as others have said it is quite expensive. Drinks were around... More

My wife and I spent 4 nights at the Raffles Praslin in May 2015. We had one of our best ever vacation. Everything was superb: the paradisiac island, the beauty of the hotel site, the absolute serenity, the world class service and the staff friendliness.
