A very beautiful hotel in a beautiful island. The hotel grounds are very well kept/ groomed and our villa was stunning. The staff were the friendliest people we've met in Seychelles which says a lot because everyone is friendly in Seychelles. Our stay was so relaxing and we felt very pampered as nothing felt like it couldn't be arranged for...

Had a wonderful 40 min hike to nearby Anse Lazio with Marie of the recreation team. Spa center very well equipped. Need some improvements in some aspects of service and transportation but overall a...

Raffles is a pleasant 10 minute taxi ride from the ferry pier taking you along a picturesque coastal road. You arrive at the open air reception from where you immediately get a favourable impression of the hotel's friendly and relaxed nature. We were swiftly checked in and one of the management team came and chatted with us as we gazed...

We stayed here for 5 nights in a partial ocean view villa. Several facts made our stay memorable. Firstly we were allowed early check in to cool down in the excellent plunge pool of the villa.

I had been debating whether to give this a 5 or 4 star rating but I think some of the deficencies are more local issues as opposed to anything against the hotel itself. The positives are the views from the room (we had a panoramic and it exceeded expectations), the rooms themselves are lovely, nicely laid out and private. The...

Stayed in Raffles for the second part of my 2 weeks trip to Seychelles. Lovely hotel. Pros: Great breakfast, amazing buffet, professional staff, clean rooms, great management. Cons: Pool temperate was too warm sometimes, if 10% service is already included it's better to remove "gratuity" line from the bills.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
