Best hotel on Prasline in terms of villas with pools , food is outstanding. Great value for money . Landscape and beach are breathtaking. Service can be better although the managers will do everything to make you happy .

I stayed in an ocean view villa and the room certainly didn't disappoint! Lovely pool, lots of out door seating. Food was very good. Particularly enjoyed the ala Carte breakfast menu with fresh smoothies. Was a little disappointed in the roof terrace bar, not much of an atmosphere. The pool area is great, really spacious & and a few steps... More

Travelling with 2 kids (aged 2 and 4 yrs old), we expected to be treated atleast with priority.

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
