This is a follow on review from my previous stay in Jan 2016. (read that review) The notable improvement was the lady staff in the breakfast room were a lot friendlier than on my previous stay. The Tandoori Night is a must for those who enjoy Indian cuisine. Well done gents. We did an island hopping cruise which we thoroughly...

We stayed at the Raffles at the end of our trip to Seychelles, and what a finale it was. We stayed in one of the top-of-the-hill pool villas (impeccable, spacious, full luxury) and we simply wanted to stay there forever. Food in the restaurants was great, so was the general pool and table tennis (that we indulge in every evening)....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
From across the continents of Europe and Asia, the legend of Raffles now extends to the enchanting islands of the Seychelles, cradled at the heart of the Indian Ocean. Raffles Praslin Seychelles presents an all-villa Seychelles luxury resort nestled within the stunning island of Praslin that was once declared the rediscovered Garden of Eden. This Seychelles hotel seeks to present guests with an escape where warm native Seychellois hospitality is infused with the enchanting touch of Raffles. Surrender to the sun-kissed allure of Anse Takamaka’s powdered sands, on to which spill the eighty-six spacious villas fashioned to assure lavish comfort. These private abodes offer a choice of whispering, opal-hued oceans and lush green hills. Be immersed in the relaxing therapies of the exclusive Raffles Spa, which coupled with the soothing embrace of unsullied nature, rejuvenate both body and spirit. Taste the distinguished flavours of the breezy Curieuse Seafood Restaurant, the local cuisine and Mediterranean delights of Losean or the light comfort food by the Pool Bar. ... more   less
