Our check-in and welcome was a bit fumbled. We drove ourselves there and I think that was what made the staff confused. The carpark is just before the reception but we drove all the way and the staff seemed confused at that. They also seemed quite busy and the whole process felt rushed (just taking our credit card for the...

I visited Raffles in the month of November and it was the best experience ever in a 5 star hotel. The staff was more than courteous. The best part about Raffles is indeed the luxurious villa and of course the private beach. Highly recommended specially for honeymooners ❤

We spent 5 nights here after a week's cruise on Crystal's yacht, Esprit, in the Seychelles. After a very active cruise, this was a wonderful way to relax completely. Our villa (102) with partial ocean view, was huge - the pictures from the resort do not do it justice. As much outdoor as indoor space (large under roof seating area,...

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
