We spent 9 days here and everything was perfect from the first to the last day. The villas are breathtaking with a magic view on Curieuse island. You can do snorkeling in the crystal waters and see a lot of tropical fishes. The 4 restaurants are a pure delight with a special nod for the panasian restaurant where the food and the service are uncomparable. The staff is welcoming and smiley and everyone one makes you feel like a special guest. We were offered to keep our room the whole day for our last day, without even asking for it! The Raffles makes you feel comfortable and unique in one of the most beautiful place in the world!

We didn't stay here, so our comments only relate to beach and restaurant. We went to pretty much every beach on Praslin and la Digue. This one is small and no wow factor like many others... Clearly people come for the villas all round the hill, with plunge pools, but where is the originality in that...i guess you makes your choice etc... but what struck us were the prices and the lack of friendly service at restaurant. Way over the top price and for Seychelles, poor verging on arrogant service..maybe suits some but not us.

My wife and I went to Seychelles for a little holiday and had the chance to stay at the Raffles. Everything was perfect throughout our stay, especially the staff. They all went out of their way to make our stay as perfect as it could be, especially Mohamed from the reception - he always attended to every need we had with the highest hospitality, and he really made our stay problem-free. Thank you to Mohamed and the entire staff and management. It was an unforgettable experience!

The property is gorgeous & very well looked after. The staff is amazing, very attentive, willing to correct any mistakes. We stayed in the panoramic suite, breathtaking views, having our pool was fantastic. The beach is so beautiful. The only downside was the food - it was pretty awful & expensive! At a hotel of this caliber, you would expect more from the food. Much much more! I've never had to send so many dishes back - we sent a dish back every night, at each restaurant! But the management staff did their best to rectify. The breakfast was great. Go for the theme nights, that was good. Otherwise, don't expect amazing culinary experiences. But the staff, property, rooms & beaches make up for it!

We stayed in Raffles in May 2022 and we do love this place. When we just came we got the information about turtles and every morning I went to feed them. Every single morning! We like different excursions service what the hotel is providing, a lot of amazing places! Want to note separately the staff. Thanks Fatira for the best service on breakfast and lunch. This girl is very friendly! Also Leni is very good in his job. Thank you concierge service especially Trisha who made wonderful excursions for us. Bernard! Thank you for all you’ve done for us. You’re cool. And one guy who’s name is Brandon and who works on yachts - he is great, very friendly and that day with him and excursion to Coco island was the best day during our staying for sure. We like rooms - we got the best one thanks staff for this. The view from our room was the best. Especially we like the fact that it was Curious island view and it’s very comfortable that this island was just in front of us. We like turtles and it is cool that from Ruffles you can visit them in 10 minutes by boat. Thank you Raffles and we will come back!

I visited this beautiful resort with my wife few days ago as a getaway from our kids. The resort is super nice and the view from villas if you are lucky could be sublime. Their main pool is huge. Food is average. The reason why I didn’t rate the resort to 5 was the service, especially the checkin part, it took super long and from 10mn it became 30mn and when we finally went there the pool was fogy and far away from our expectations, especially when you pay that high for the villa. Their duty manager still managed to change our villa and get a way better view with clean pool, but that was already 5pm.
