A must-visit for beach lovers, Raffles Praslin Seychelles is a charming little siren in the ocean, beckoning travelers to return again and again.

Paradise may just be a concept of myth and lore, but travelers stubbornly seek it out anyhow. Arriving on the northern tip of Praslin in the Seychelles, lucky leisure lovers may find themselves thinking, "Jackpot."

Raffles Praslin, Seychelles hides calmly and quietly on a green hill facing the teal waters of the Indian Ocean. The resort features 86 villas including one and two-bedroom villa suites, each with private plunge pool, and outdoor pavilion. These private domiciles sit in Elysium-like surroundings, and are amongst the largest in the region. Enjoy a bath with a water view, an outdoor shower, or a lazy morning in your cozy bed with Nespresso you just brewed.

Losean Restaurant is offering buffet style themed evenings and contemporary Mediterranean cuisine with influence from the Indian Ocean while Curieuse Seafood Restaurant showcase seafood specialties, including locally caught fish and lobster.

Unwind at Danzil Lounge Bar with regular entertainment with live band or DJ or at the rooftop lounge Takamaka Terrace offering a wide array of beverages and shishas with a backdrop of dramatic vistas. You can also dine in the privacy of your villa or choose to eat at your favourite outdoor location: private dinner on the beach, in a cabana, on board a yacht, island BBQ…

Stay in and tone up at the gym and spa, or venture out into the Vallée de Mai in search of the provocative coco de mer. Beaches include the Anse Takamaka, and the nearby Anse Lazio, hailed as one of the most flawless beaches on earth. 10-minutes on a boat with snorkel in-hand yields encounters with Giant Tortoises at Curieuse, an apt name indeed.

You'll need fuel for your adventures, and Raffles Praslin, Seychelles has your best interests at heart.

Paradise found? You be the judge.

Truly Paradise!

This was our first trip to the Seychelles and I am so thrilled we finally chose Raffles. I did a lot of research before and read countless reviews. Eventually it was between staying on Praslin or Mahe and we chose Raffles - so Praslin it was.

We could not have made a better choice. We were promptly collected at the airport and whisked away to this beautiful property. As we arrived (which was early morning) we were warmly welcomed by their team and recreation manager Olly as well as the GM Simon. We immediately felt like special guests and it never ended until we left.

We were given a choice of 2 villas and we eventually chose Villa 296, it was very spacious (around 135sqm) and had the most magnificent, uninterrupted view of the ocean, a plunge pool, a large outdoor area with sun beds and a large day bed. The bathroom was very spacious and the closet just perfect. We chose this villa because of the view and the fact that it was at the highest point. A buggy service is on offer which was always prompt. The butler service was fantastic but not overbearing which we appreciated. We also appreciated the fact that everyone knew our names and were always ready to assist us with a smile - nothing ever seemed an inconvenience to them.

This property is very close to Anse Lazio which is one of the best beaches in the world. We decided to cycle there which was hard work on a few hills but worth every minute.(10min car drive)

We also visited Curieuse Island and La Digue - both are not too far and definitely worth the trip. We went up to the highest point on the island (Zimbabwe) and watched the sunset - not to be missed. We also spent time at the pool and on the beach and we were always well taken care of. Bottled water is always available at no charge while in your villa, by the pool, beach or making a trip.

There is a very well appointed gym which we made use of and many free activities to take advantage of. The food was always well presented. Seafood was particularly enjoyable. Overall our lunch by the pool, in villa dining and the Grilled Seafood evening at Losean was delicious. We loved the ambience of Curieuse but didn't enjoy the food as much but that didn't affect our stay at all. We enjoyed a private beach barbeque on our anniversary. It was beautiful under the stars, food was lovely and we were well taken care off.

Overall the staff and service is excellent. Special mention to the GM Simon, Olly, Sandra, Yanick, Ashok, Mayur and Christopher. Everyone at Raffles made our holiday such a pleasure! We highly recommend this hotel and can't wait to return.

Amazing place to be!

What a wonderful location!
Indeed, charming and a must for Praslin, 10 minutes drive to the one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Anse Lazio.
At Raffles, pampered all day long, we were delighted to have such a caring team around us.
Discrete and professional, open hearted and respectful.

Thank you!
