From across the continents of Europe and Asia, the legend of Raffles now extends to the enchanting islands of the Seychelles, cradled at the heart of the Indian Ocean.

We’ve been in many luxury resorts around the world, including Banyan tree, Anassa, mandarin oriental, hilton and other boutique hotels. You can see how much money is invested the properties and Raffles is no different. You can see it in the details and specifically in Raffles when there is extra little things like cool flip flops in the room, fresh delicious in the room, etc. BUT where Raffles in Seychelles really stand out is with the People and Service. They have excellent team in the reception, spa, restaurants, pool, kids club, beach and house keeping. Specifically Mohammad in the reception, Cecile in the resuturant who always took care of us, Depender the Chef who prepare Sushi especially for us, Grace in the restaurant reception, Endi the amazing massage therapist from Bali, and of course Salwa the resort manager which was always available to answer our questions. There are so many more great people that served us... sorry for not mentioning everyone. As for the “basics”, Raffles is one of the best resorts we’ve been to. Including amazing big villa, great view, tasty food, amazing beach, great snorkeling experience, and more. Thank you for a wonderful vacations. Rada team from Israel :)

Hotel's Favorite
We visited Praslin Island and stayed at Raffles mid of February this year, for 6 nights. We stayed in a pool view villa, which was fantastic. The room itself was very good size, and the balcony with the tiny private pool and corner sofa was a positive tip on the scenery. ( Photos from hotel site don’t lie!) Location of our villa was very quiet and convenient to all major locations of the resort, even though you can move everywhere with a buggy. We visited both restaurants which we found really very nice. The food the cocktails the whole setting was amazing. Executive Chef and his team are really taking care of each visitor. Try the dish of the day and you won’t regret it ( I had very delicious catch of the day... if you are fan of fish like me). Don’t miss the Creol barbecue every Wednesday evening. We had couple of therapies in spa, as well. What a great care, from all the personnel. The manager and her team ( Edie, Sunita, Virginia) just amazing. They organized treatments according our needs. Try the signature massage... unforgettable and of course at the outdoor treatment room. The hotel organized our taxi transportation from and to the airport and a private tour to nearby islands for snorkeling and swimming. They are a little bit pricey but you will be rewarded by the care of the people involved to these excursions ( Brigitte in concierge- a really helpful lady- can organize everything for you. Ask for Patrick as your skipper). We even rent a car and do our own tour in the island, Discovering nice private beaches, and of course visited Anse Lazio, the vale de mer etc. The hotel overall is clean and offers to its guest the best hospitality. Perhaps the amenities in the room are not sufficient for both guests, but housekeeping can always provide you whatever you need. However, the most impressive in Raffles is its stuff. The people working there in every level and position are just the BEST! So kind, so professional, so willing to help. Always with smile and so caring. Special thanks to Michelle Castro from Losean Restaurant. She is a great asset to the hotel. Such a lovely and caring person, always friendly and so professional. She always remembered our names, the table and the coffees we preferred during breakfast. Many thanks to Isaam from Couriesse Restaurant, Donia and Melanie from Reception, Adria from housekeeping ( always so professional and kind) and to all the people that made our holidays so special. We will definitely return to Raffles soon.

+ Beautiful resort and beach. The villa has an ocean view with Curieuse island right in front of us. We actually love our villa (and breakfast foods) in Raffles more than in Four Seasons Seychelles. It’s bright and we enjoy sunrise view every morning. Cleanliness is top notch. Outdoor shower has a full privacy. Love the herbs garden with lemongrass around (under the bar) that lead to the beach and tortoise garden. Kavi is very professional made our checked in process very smooth and efficient. Ahmed, Raktim and all car and buggy drivers are very friendly and responds to your requests quickly. We enjoyed Fishermen’s catch and Tandoori night. The set up and the foods are nice. Shivam at the beach restaurant is very attentive, genuinely friendly, professional and polite. We love the fact that there were resort cats and dogs we saw on the beach and garden at the dinner, the staff like them. We should share our space with the animals. This animals are very friendly, clean, gentle and most guests pet them. If you are guest at this resort please respect them including the gentle giant tortoise. The concierge arranged our trips accordingly even in the last minute. Resort location is very convenient to Anse Lazio beach and Vallée de mai. We took the boat to go to Curieuse island with friendly staff, Patrick and didn’t regret it. The driver who drove us around the island is very informative as he grew up in the island. He helped us to find coco de mer to purchase. Things to improve: -Service can be improved, 1st day staff we met address us by our name but not the following days during our stay although the resort didn’t have full occupancy that time. Same people keep ask our room number at the restaurant. We realize staffs would greet me “how are you sir or thank you sir” but not my wife although we always walk together. -Water provided in tortoise garden is too small for 11 tortoise and seems never been refilled during our stay. We saw less and less water daily in a small pool and tortoises try to fit in together. Please add more water or make a bigger pond and clean it regularly. And we hope tortoise get more other fruits other than banana and fresh leaves -Sadly, fruit bat is served during creole dinner. especially when corona virus still hot news and they haven’t figured it out where the virus came from. They are lovely creatures and we enjoy to see them flying around during sunset. Trapping them is very sad. -Checked out experience didn’t feel special at all. the staff who checked us out was just about business, check the mini bar and that’s it. No questions of how our stay was. -We picked up quite amount of plastic trash (photo) on the beach that probably come during high tide. Thank you and we’ll be back!

As returning guests to this magnificent property, we had high expectations. We were blown away once again. Our villa and the facilities were spotless, the food was out of this world and the service all round was superb. Thank you Raffles Praslin for welcoming us back and making this another magical experience. We will be back again
