raffles praslin

7 nights from £3,065 raffles praslin seychelles

Raffles Praslin is hidden away in blissful seclusion amongst the lush green hillsides, above stunning granite boulders and amazing views of the Indian Ocean. 

Accessed by a short flight from Mahé and a 30 minute road transfer, or alternatively a 15 minute private helicopter trip, Raffles is an oasis of calm and truly magnificent comfort and style.  86 superb villas each have their own plunge pool and views across the Ocean, whilst the Panoramic Pool Villas have the best views all.  Guests in all the villas enjoy 24-hour butler service. 

Raffles Praslin offers excellent Scuba diving, snorkelling and a range of non-motorised water sport.  The resort's gorgeous half mile long sandy beach is perfect throughout the year for swimming, snorkelling and other water sports as there's no current and no seasonal seaweed to worry about, unlike some other beaches on Praslin.  When you're not being active, the Raffles Spa, the largest spa in the Seychelles, is the ideal place to recover and offers a fabulous range of retreatments and therapies.

There's a good selection of dining options at Raffles too.  There's the Losean all-day restaurant,  the Curieuse restaurant for seafood specialities, whilst light snacks and bar food are served in the Takamaka Terrace Lounge - a funky lounge on the rooftop where you can smoke a shisha or a Cuban cigar, enjoy some signature cocktails under the stars and listen to some relaxing lounge music. 

If you're travelling with your children, you can be sure that they will be entertained and well looked after in The Sugar Palm Club.

Guests flying to and from Raffles enjoy the benefit of the Raffles Lounge on Mahé.

Indulge in a day of Scuba diving in discovery of the underwater treasures. St. Pierre islet, an uninhabited island situated in the heart of the Curieuse Marine Park, is only a 5-minute boat ride from Raffles Praslin.  With a maximum depth of 12m, the surrounding waters are perfect for introductory dives and a great training venue for early divers.  Be enthralled by the abundant marine life at St. Pierre, ranging from angelfish, grouper, solider-fish and whitetip sharks.

The Coral Garden nearby to St. Pierre, showcases an interesting ""coral nursery"" and a myraid of octopuses, eels, stingrays, clown fish, sea turtles and more.

For the seasoned diver, visit Felicite and Coco Islands for exceptional scuba diving spots.  Find schools of colorful fish, grey reef sharks, porcupine stingrays, yellow-fun tuna, and diverse coral reefs in the oceanic abyss.  After a day of underwater exploration, return to the resort for a sizzling barbecue at Curieuse Restaurant.
