The Seychelles

Raffles Praslin, Seychelles

Opened in February 2011, the Raffles Praslin hotel in the Seychelles is yet another gorgeous addition to Raffles string of beauties. Although the Seychelles’ natural good looks aids to the idyllic vibe, this hotel certainly keeps up with Raffles unbreakable legacy of unsurpassed luxury and service. After a hard day’s work playing on the powder soft shores or indulging the island explorer inside, chose from the extensive range of carefully prepared cocktails and enjoy a Cuban cigar at the Danzil lounge. Pure island bliss you might say?

Your Room

With the villas dotted around the resort, you can be picky about which film-set sight you’d like to wake up to. Whatever your choice, your pad will come with contemporary furnishings in soothing tones. Bearing in mind the scenery, you’re bound to be eager to spend as much time in the great outdoors as possible. And that’s totally allowed, better yet, it has been catered for. Your expansive outdoor pavilion is so well-equipped, you could pretty much live there. Enjoy an in-villa breakfast on your private dining area, with your butler preparing your eggs and toast just the way you like it. Need a little more secluded down-time? Then chill-out in your private pool during the day, and as night falls treat yourself with a massage under the stars on your private deck.


If you’re not familiar with the Seychelles scenery, allow us to introduce you. Expect to find lush tropical greenery and dramatic granite rocks, which are surrounded by pristine white sands and the azure Indian Ocean. Sound like paradise? We think so. The Raffles Praslin is located on the island of Praslin, the second largest island of the Seychelles islands, home to natural wonders such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site Vallee de Mai or Anse Lazio, one of the most beautiful beaches in the world and only a few minutes away from the resort. And making life just that little bit easier Mahe airport is just a scenic 45 minute journey from the resort, or a 15 minute flight, if you’re in a hurry.

Why we like it

We simply can’t get enough of the Spa, which has been recognised as one of the best in the Seychelles. With a core philosophy surrounding the iconic Lotus flower treatments are divided into different categories; Bud (body), Blossom (beauty) and Bloom (full experiences) to ensure that your treatments are tailor made to your every needs. With Black Pearls native to the shores of the island, several of the blissfully restorative treatments combine therapeutic grade pearl powder with soothing techniques. We love the Pure Pearl Signature Treatment, that features exfoliating pearl powders from nearby pearl farms, nature has never been so luxurious.
