The hotel is 20min by bicycle from Anse Lasio, which is by far the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The villas are very luxurious, offering infinity plunge pool, outdoors seating as well as a very nice oversized bath tub all with great views of the ocean. The food at the restaurant and by the pool is excellent. The... More

We chose Raffles as we really liked the room layout with plunge pool. Everything was really great, wish the pool had a better ocean view but it's only few steps away so it's not a deal breaker, however, we had sushi omakase dinner one night and by far, that was the worst omakase dinner we've had anywhere in the world,...

We stayed in a panoramic ocean view room at the very top of the resort, and it was worth every penny. It can get a bit pricey, but if you can afford it, go for it!!! We stayed for five nights in the so called low/windy season, but we only had an hour or so of rain on a couple... More

We stayed at Raffles in the last phase of our Honeymoon for 3 nights. We had earlier stayed at Mahe and travelled here by Jetty.

Sorry for the late review Raffles, we just wanted to thank you all for a memorable (and too short) honeymoon. Though our stay had its ups and (forgivable) downs in October 2015 (mostly the downs were the blackouts, no phone access during blackouts, an issue with one European front office lady), you made it up by giving your guests some...

My wife and I stayed here during our holiday in September. The grounds of the hotel are gorgeous with villas over looking the water. Check-in was a bit spotty, the receptionist seemed to be very confused, and his English was limited. The villa was beautiful, clean, and extremely spacious.

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
