Raffles is a fantastic place for those who want a luxurious, peaceful, and pampering experience. My husband and I spent a week there for our anniversary and had a great holiday. The team made it a point to focus on customer service and to ensure that guests had everything they needed to unwind and relax. Frederick (Operations Manager) was always...

This hotel is high class and has a beautiful pool and beach. Food is very good. Rooms have beautiful views if raised up. The layout is somewhat strange however. And buggies are required always to get about as it's very hilly. Beach and snorkelling plus access to the giant tortoises is fabulous.

When visiting this resort be sure to have loads of cash, we found the resort over priced but if you are on a budget pay the 30 Euros to the Berjaya beach front and visit the local cafe's buy your own drinks at 400% less. Villas are great, not as private as expected though. Ask for Andrew to take you...

The hotel location is a bit far from the airport almost 30-40 min from Praslin airport. Breakfast was amazing. I had small issues with the...

Good location. For the price the place was worth it. We were on our honeymoon so we expected more, but it was average. We got what we paid for. However, a lot of improvements can be made, in comparison with other resorts in Seychelles.

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
