Beautiful resort on Praslin island! If you really want to get away and take a break - making sure you don't end up in one of those overly commercialized holiday destinations - this might just be the place to go! Super friendly people take care of you, most of them locals so they know what they're talking about if you...

We had a wonderful stay at raffles. The rooms were luxurious and the service by the staff attentive and gracious. The beach was wonderful and all of the small details in our room more perfect! Our only concerns were that we were constantly trying to be up-sold by the manager, Frederik. We paid the expensive price for the experience and...

Our stay here was amazing! - the villa, the location, the staff, the food were all exceptional! A very relaxing and great 'chilling out' resort (not for party animals!). The staff were all friendly, professional and discreet. Everyone greeted us by name and with a smile. Nothing was too much trouble. We shouldn't really single any member of staff out...

The only thing that saved my rating from "Terrible" were the magnificent views from the villa (with direct ocean view). The rest was at the level of a cheap 3* hotel: - villa not maintained properly and not renovated for a long time (see some attached photos) - villa not cleaned properly (see some attached photos) - turn-down service always...

The first impression was very good. The hotel management obviously care and put efforts into this place. Staff are generally much happier than the other 5-star hotel we stayed in the Seychelles. I will start with the pros: 1. The hotel sits in a beautiful location by the hills. Rooms are built hidden in the hills and luscious vegetation. Despite...

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.
