Travellers' Choice
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. Raffles Praslin Seychelles presents an all-villa Seychelles luxury resort nestled within the stunning island of Praslin that was once declared the rediscovered Garden of Eden. This Seychelles hotel seeks to present guests with an escape where warm native Seychellois hospitality is infused with the enchanting touch of Raffles. Surrender to the sun-kissed allure of Anse Takamaka’s powdered sands, on to which spill the eighty-six spacious villas fashioned to assure lavish comfort. These private abodes offer a choice of whispering, opal-hued oceans and lush green hills. Be immersed in the relaxing therapies of the exclusive Raffles Spa, which coupled with the soothing embrace of unsullied nature, rejuvenate both body and spirit. Taste the distinguished flavours of the breezy Curieuse Seafood Restaurant, the local cuisine and Mediterranean delights of Losean or the light comfort food by the Pool Bar.

We are frequent travellers and use to stay in 5 star hotels all over the world. The Seychellois are know for their friendlyness and happyness. This is exactly what we have experienced in the Raffles hotel, it was really outstanding. The quality and service of the staff and especially their high attention and behaviour was unbelievable. At each and every moment we felt as welcome guests as we were at home. All the staff speaks fluent English (and French) and it is their goal that all the guests feel comfortable at any time for any kind of questions. The friendliness was everywhery: from housekeeping, to the gardeners, receptionist (Raktim & Elvira) and especially people working in the restaurant - just amazing! Special thanks to Darrel, Laura & Mohammed for their professionality combined with a visible attention, kind behaviour and their smile every day. You made our day! Congratulations to the management especially Salva Razzouk in the position as General Manager and Ram, Director of Rooms, for this great investment in the most important asset of a company: their employees! In order to develop every single employee further, the management team exemplifies a feedback culture. Also thanks to Shiv, the Sommelier - and all the other employees who took care to us during our stay in Raffles. You all made the difference. The hotel environment and the beach is stunning. The whole property, the park and also the rooms are very clean. Of course there is always room for improvement: the hotel complex, especially the beautifully landscaped pool, is getting on in years and needs a refresh. Now to the food, which is of great importance on vacation. We were impressed about the big range and variety of the buffet, as well as in the á la carte restaurants. The quality of the food and its presentation leaves no wish unfulfilled. There were different theme evenings like Indian, Arabic, Creole night or Fish Barbecue. Even if we went later to the buffet, everything was filled up like being the first guest. Optionally, there were 3 different restaurants (à la carte). We booked the signature package and had an In Villa Dining included which we took on our terrace in front of the private villa pool. This was just gorgeous and unforgettable, we can highly recommend to book this romantic dinner as a really special evening! Some breakfast dishes were made on order, according needs of guests and always fresh! The freshness & quality of the food as well as the service and good explanation of different dishes, was everywhere. We have been in Raffles Seychelles for the first time, but for sure not the last time. We can highly recommend this great hotel to every guest who likes to spend some relaxing and carefree days in a five star plus hotel with all its amenities and outstanding service! Thanks to all!

Our villa was well furnished and clean. Air conditioning was good, mini bar and refrigerator was well stocked. Bed was comfortable, linen and bathroom towels were always clean and regularly changed. View from bedroom was fantastic. We woke up to a view of the sea and hills. In all we had a very pleasurable and enjoyable stay.
