Wonderful hotel, lovely villa and perfect location with stunning views and great food. The staff were extremely nice and helpful during our entire stay. This is a truly five star luxury resort and I can only recommend staying there on Praslin!

We really enjoyed the quiet and secluded feel at the Raffles. Beach has some nice nooks for privacy. We felt like we were the only ones on the beach. It was delightful. The service was consistently very good and the food was exceptional. Besides the very nice room, the spa setting was so relaxing. The gardens are beautiful. We thought... More

Whilst the travel wasn't brilliant (Emirates lost one of our suitcases between Dubai and Seychelles!), what was to greet us was beyond words, but I'll try 😎 Right from the check in, we were treated like old friends. Our suite was stunning and very private and was not overlooked at all, the first night dinner on our veranda overlooking the... More

We stayed in a Villa Panoramic that are truly spectacular, all the bedroom, dressing area and bathroom, as well as the outside area, with the plunge pool, solarium and terrace. The views are magnificent. The only downside is what other people have commented, the lack of privacy. I considere inappropriate you can see and be seen with total clarity when... More

Outstanding staff who deliver warm genuine hospitality. The villa is gorgeous, extremely well appointed and the further up the hill you go simply expands the incredible views across the ocean. Fabulous spa, food and beverage! A wonderful property to experience Praslin Island. Would choose Praslin over the Maldives anyday.

You must visit Praslin and stay in Raffles. It was an amazing experience. From the moment we arrived and until we departed we felt special staying here. The staff are the most friendliest and helpful I have ever experienced on a trip. On top of that the villas are amazing. They have excellent views.

First thing to say about is the service, you can teach people, but its much more better when the guest feel that everybody from the technician to the beach service love his job and is proud to work for that hotel.

Even if the staff working there was nice, this hotel is not worth a five star! I do not even know where to start.... The location is nice, you have a nice view on the sea but they must have destroyed a part of the mountain to build it and not to speak about the villa to buy. One bad... More
