We stayed here for 4 wonderful nights for our honeymoon (how I wish I had booked more days!) I usually feel a wave or two of home sickness when away but Raffles Seychelles was so wonderful that I only felt a longing to stay. We stayed in a panoramic ocean villa - spotless with a breathtaking view! We were quite...

I travel a lot and consider myself kind of hard to impress but this place blew me away. Yes the villas are beautiful and luxurious, and the double infinity pool is unreal and the food is to die for, but it's the service that really sets this place apart from other hotels. The staff can't do enough for you (special...

We stayed at Raffles for five nights in May 2017 in garden view villa 116. In summary this is an outstanding property offering an ultimate all-villa luxury escape with standards of service that are amongst the best I have ever experienced worldwide. From the moment you arrive to the open air lobby with its beautiful vista, it's obvious that this...

We stayed at Raffles for honeymoon last week and overall had a wonderful stay - the staff were all lovely, the food was delicious and the villa/beach/pool were all stunning. There were a few things that I think need improving that I expect from a 5 star hotel: not providing a free shuttle from Praslin airport seems an obvious service...

It's our first visit to Seychelles and if we had known better we'd book more nights in Praslin. We love the island much more than Mahe and La dique. The local food was much better, and the Raffles hotel was also a highlight. Beautifully located on a hill, the villa was really nice and the service was very good! They...

My new husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and we could not have been more pleased. Our jaws were on the floor the minute we walked into our Ocean View Villa. While the room was expensive, we felt it was worth the price. The staff was extremely attentive to our every need, and they even had a special...

My friends have planned this trip for my birthday and I couldn't have imagined it to be any better! I've been to raffles 3 years ago and I have to say a lot have changed since I came. 3 years ago there wasn't any kind of entertainment nor was there any other option of restaurant other than the buffet.

This is the our second visit to Raffles hotel and we loved it.

We had an amazing stay at Raffles, the check in was seamless and we were really made to feel welcome from the start. Management were ever present and the staff in general were friendly and very helpful (not necessarily the norm in the Seychelles, we know as we stayed at two other resorts on our Seychelles trip).

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
