Raffles Seychelles

Property Description

Perched on the remote island paradise of Praslin—worlds away from the everyday—Raffles Seychelles surrounds guests in authentic Seychellois spirit, year-round sunshine and breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. Its private pool villas are among the most spacious in the Seychelles and put guests just steps from the resort’s white sand beach or tucked onto a beautifully landscaped hillside for panoramic vistas. Each villa features its own private outdoor pavilion, plunge pool and balcony to soak up the views and tropical breezes.

Guests will find every need attended to, thanks to Raffles’ legendary round-the-clock butler service, providing everything from one-hour pressing service to in-villa spa treatments, yoga and Pilates sessions as well as 24-hour in-villa dining. The butler can also arrange a wide array of excursions, guided outdoor activities, water sports and the resort’s supervised children’s program, The Sugar Palm Club. Five distinctive dining experiences keep palates inspired, from the atmospheric Curieuse, the Seychelles’ only Asian restaurant, to The Sushi Room showcasing the island’s world-class catch. At Raffles Spa, guests can steal away for world-class wellness and pampering.

Praslin is the perfect launch point to explore the myriad wonders of the Seychelles, an archipelago of 115 islands off Africa’s east coast, famous for its secluded coves, pristine beaches and coral reefs, rare wildlife and prehistoric sites.

Raffles Seychelles is only 15 minutes by plane or helicopter from Mahé Island or a scenic 55-minute ferry ride.
