What we love
The peace and tranquillity of Raffles Praslin is for us what makes it so special. That along with a world class spa, mouth-watering food and fantastic staff, make it one of our first choices for hotels in Praslin.
Setting the scene
Set in a tranquil bay in the North East of Praslin Island and overlooking neighbouring Curieuse Island, Raffles Praslin is a secluded luxurious resort which is fast earning itself an outstanding reputation. The resort boasts a choice of stylish and comfortable private pool villas, with private butler service and gorgeous views. At the heart of the resort lie excellent facilities, such as one of the largest pools and spas in the Seychelles. There is also a great choice of dining options and a beautiful beach to enjoy. We love the fact that although expansive the resort still feels intimate and private, ensuring a relaxed and memorable holiday.
The accommodation options at Raffles Praslin are made up of 86 one and two bedroom luxury pool villas, which are dotted across the hillside overlooking the bay. Choose from Bay View pool villas which are conveniently located near to the resort facilities to panoramic pool villas which are located higher up the hillside and offer sublime views of the surrounding scenery.
