Raffles, the hotel with the spectacular view.”

The view, the individual pool by each villa, and the warmth of the staff

We spent two nights at Raffles on Praslin Seychelles and I must say that it was an amazing experience. Our initial plan was to spend a night but the experience compelled us to return from La Digue for another night. This hotel is truly 5 star and the private swimming pool in each villa is novel. Our stay here was amazing and worth every penny. Thinking of visiting Seychelles? Raffles will no doubt delight you.

Just got back from praslin, was apprehensive as traveling with a 9 month baby and 6year old ppl kept saying it was more of a honeymoon destination but we had a great time.... The hotel was was fantastic spacious and was prepared for our children we had a cot and sofa bed ready for the kids...we had welcome cookies with the children's names on them made them feel very special.... Had forgotten the baby sterilizer the hotel provided us with one which was fantastic....our butlers Kavi and Asim were just absolutely fantastic...thanks to them we were very very well taken care of.... View was just breathtaking from our truly is paradise.... Big thank you to all the staff ....very very welcoming and helpful ....and very baby friendly ... Thank you Kavi, Asim, Ashok and Christopher .... You all made our trip worthwhile..... To Mr Simon (GM) you are running a great hotel ....thank you for making me and my family feel so welcome..... Definitely a must go... We went to curresse island..saw the turtles and had an absolute fantastic BBQ.... Took bikes from the hotel and rode down to the village which was beautiful..... Went twice to Anse lazio beach the beach was amazing as well as the little cafe there food was very good there so ended up making two trips..... Basically if you want to relax and do nothing ...just swim and eat this is the place to go ...ultimate relaxation even with kids.....raffles had a great kids club my daughter went crab hunting with them and attended their pool kids were happy we were happy!!!!! Just one small suggestion they need to bring in a bit more on the food menus as it is slightly small ...both pool and in room dining..... Overall fantastic holiday thanks to raffles....

Super resort”

Fantastic resort and facilities and yet again with the Seychelles, some of the best and most friendly staff I have ever encountered! The sea at the time of our visit was a little too rough to swim in (absolutely no fault of the resort)! I Knew Banyan Tree beach was choppy but was surprised by this one, although it was not that bad. Villa was their panoramic view and was incredible. The highest standard. Villas area quite close together, but this was not a problem at all. Staff were faultless and the most friendly and the food too was absolutely super! Would have no hesitation in recommending this place! Visited Constance for the day on Prasnin which also had super staff but was VERY happy with our choice. The beaches at Constance do have the edge and if you are a Golfer I suppose too, but the villas in Raffles are SO GOOD!! Also has the most spacious and best pools we saw in the Seychelles and we saw allot! The communal areas in this place are actually the best we saw.

Best hotel from my life”

Everything was perfect

Raffles Praslin is amazing, best hotel experience in my life. View, cleanness, staff, food, facilities, everything good, all really good. Only very small remark is that you need to go to your villa by hotel electric cars and sometimes is boring to wait for them, except that all good. Worth every penny of yr money, could be a little cheaper, but...

AmazingHotel but food &wine was way too expensive!”

Modern, New, and beautiful.

We had an amazing time at this hotel although we were very disappointed with the prices of the food and wine. We are used to paying good money for food in these types of hotels but at the Raffles is was way too much. Seems to be the trend all over the Seychelles actually.

Stunning location - numerous ssues”

the location, the rooms, the weather

Mixed. location beautiful, some staff very good, others far too over familiar and one waiter at the pool bar (with tattoos all over his arms) teased our 2 year old son who was distressed at a meal time. thoroughly inappropriate. the hotel has a stunning location, the food is fine but extremely overpriced,there seems to be an overwhelming desire to put chips/fries with everything and not enough local fish on the menu. room service was very good. breakfast buffet was very dissapointing - no fresh milk, quality of fruit, veg etc average. one thing that was very disappointing is the fact that when people fly into Mahe they have to fly or get a ferry to Praslin, which means Raffles is at a disadvantage compared to all hotels on the main island. it therefore does not make sense that Raffles make a profit on booking flights from main island to Praslin - an almost 50% surcharge was added to the actual price cost which was very disappointing, especially when there is a further 50 or 60 euro cost for a hotel car from praslin airport to the hotel. while the hotel is beautiful, it was only 40% occupied the whole time we were there, and a big part of this must be down to a) the excessive price per night per room (nearly USD900) combined with the fact the hotel make a profit on booking the connecting flight from mahe to praslin. things like that mean we will not be returning, which is a shame.

The Ultimate in Getaway Stays”

privacy, pampering, private pool

This is definitely a luxury hotel. You pay for all the amenities, but they're worth it. I traveled through the Seychelles and stayed in three separate places and this was my culminating weekend. Glad I saved it for the end! Each villa is private, with its own pool and deck area. The outdoor shower was amazing. Sometimes a little annoying to have to rely on calling a golf cart to get around, but overall the staff was quick to respond to our needs. Loved it.

Nice hotel, not worth 1000 usd a night”

the room, the beach, the sushi restaurant

The room is very comfortable altough the design is a bit outdated and has many signs of neglect even tough the hotel is pretty new. Practically no toiletries were given... The food is good, not excellent, but it's really pricy, there's no way to have dinner for less than 100 usd per person and lunch for less than 50 usd per person. In almost every aspect I would say that the hotel shows a poor effort: the spa is definetely not worth the price, treatments are below any 5 star hotel standard, you're not offered slippers or a drink like in every other hotel... the spa area is tiny!!! At the pool restaurant I was served a sandwich and the bread had mold, the waiter deducted it from my check... but still, it's ridiculous!! On the way from the airport to the hotel the car driver hit another vehicle and we had to wait at the police station, after a couple of days I received a box of macarons and two days later a letter apologizing for the incident... it feels like there's no supervision at all. The band at the bar drove us away as far a we could it was truly awful... like a really cheap weddng band and it was so loud that you could hear it at the restaurant!!!! Service at the beach and pool was pretty bad. Taking all of this into consideration, I still believe that Raffles is one of the best options in Seychelles, I could tell that the standards in this country are very far from what you get in maldives, mexico or other popular luxury beach spots.

Perfect place for Honeymoon”

When i arrived at the mahe airport, a lady(raffles staff) already knew my name and guide me to the domeatic flight desk and helped me out the check in. Impressive. And when i got to the raffles, all the staffs are very kind! Facilities and roooom were clean and super nice! The foood was really good. (went to curieuse resturant) when u call the buggy, it fastly come to you. The beach and pool were beatiful! The location is near by the anse lazio! But the load where to raffles are pretty narrow so must be careful and the enterance of raffles, should drive slowly!

This superb hotel is in a beautiful setting, with excellent staff, amazing rooms with every conceivable comfort for a romantic, restful holiday.

From the moment we arrived the friendly, helpful staff ensured our every need and comfort was catered for. The spacious rooms/villas are fantastically designed with indoor and outdoor showers, a beautiful infinity plunge pool, outside terrace, very comfortable bed and well planned bathroom and wardrobe areas. The beach was sandy, private and had very comfortable loungers. There was a fabulous pool and bar area, bikes and kayaks were provided if required and there was a further bar and 2 restaurants. Staff were extremely good and the manager greeted us on two occasions, something we hadn't experienced in any hotel before. This is not a cheap option nor should it be, it's for a special occasion and worth saving for. We will do so and plan to return to this unspoilt, tranquil island.

Fantastic stay, wonderful hotel, great location”

Location, staff, room quality

This is a fantastic hotel, in a great location with views of the ocean and surrounding islands. The staff and management are delightful - very happy, positive, and engaging - and all provide an outstanding level of service. The villas are very well appointed with beautiful furnishings and lots of space. Room rates and food & beverage are quite expensive, but then the standard is very high - this hotel is far better than many five star hotels I have stayed at. The location is among the best I have ever seen at any hotel, worldwide.

Luxury stay on Praslin”

Nice villas, good food, very good service

The stay was great. Villas are awesome and service (every villa has a butler service) is really outstanding. The only one thing that was a bit disappointing were the very high prices at the hotel. It seemed another 10-15% higher then in other 5* on the island. Food is gereally good. i would recommend the Curieuse restaurant most with very good dining. Buffet is good too but we felt it is overpriced when we went there.

luxurious, boring, expensive, attentive”

In-room private pool, breakfast, private beach

The room was fantastic, beautiful view and amazing deck with a private infiity pool. The bath was beautiful with a full glass wall but the outdoor shower was caved in and ugly, the indoor shower was spacious but nothing special. We got upgraded for free because we were on our honeymoon. But that was the only free thing. They gave us a private butler who ended up doing a lot of things for us. Unfortunately there was one thing he didn't do and told us to contact directly from our room concerning an error in our reservation, he didn't mention anything about how expensive the call would be. They ended up charging us $230 for a 20 minute phone call... When we complained they ended up just charging us what they would pay the phone company for our call... so $30 bucks. OBSURD and disgusted us at what point they wanted to rip us off all the time. The whole time it was all about money and making a HUGE profit off of us. All the restaurants were closed one night so we ate at the hotel and they cheapest thing on the menu was a pizza for $50.. each. I've had better pizza come out of my freezer, another rip off! There was nothing to do really, the pool was simple and left you bored after 2 minutes, the private beach was really pretty and when we snorkeled we saw a sea turtle which is rare for the time of year we were there. Sadly when we looked at the "reefs" they were the hotel drainage pipes. The spa was mediocre, the women's side was out of service and it was all indoors.. you would think they would want to exploit the exteriors in such a beautiful location. I went on the men's side, it was cool but the jacuzzi was freezing and the sauna/hammam was nothing to write home about. The island itself was not the prettiest and there was nothing to do without a car and with a car, you can circle the whole place in 30 minutes. The hotel was nice but not worth.. I would NOT go back or recommend staying there.

Location, standard, food

Raffles was a great choice for our honeymoon, we enjoyed our stay very much. The room was well designed, and we loved the huge balcony and the nice little pool. Staff were quite friendly and helpful. They really worked on details. Have to mention their seafood restaurant, amazing grilled lobster, big fan.

the location of the hotel, the spectacular ocean views and the amazing staff

From the 1st moment we stepped in, till we bid Raffles goodbye, we felt that we were treated with utmost care. the villas are fabulous, the pools are massive. the food is perfect, the staff most well behaved, the service impeccable. We were pampered to the core and will recommend blindly to everyone. the ocean view private pool villa is ideal value for money, if booked on agoda.

Good: Amazing ocean view! Room is large, facilies are new. Most of the staffs are very friendly. We really enjoyed our time in Raffles. Not good: Beach is not so outstanding but still a beautiful beach. Staffs are very friendly except a femal staff serving in restaurant. Rude and racism,I was really shocked by her manner.
