Raffles is a pleasant 10 minute taxi ride from the ferry pier taking you along a picturesque coastal road. You arrive at the open air reception from where you immediately get a favourable impression of the hotel's friendly and relaxed nature. We were swiftly checked in and one of the management team came and chatted with us as we gazed...

We stayed here for 5 nights in a partial ocean view villa. Several facts made our stay memorable. Firstly we were allowed early check in to cool down in the excellent plunge pool of the villa. They even showed us another room for us to choose from. Secondly, we had booked the room for two, but my teenage daughter came...

I had been debating whether to give this a 5 or 4 star rating but I think some of the deficencies are more local issues as opposed to anything against the hotel itself. The positives are the views from the room (we had a panoramic and it exceeded expectations), the rooms themselves are lovely, nicely laid out and private. The...

Stayed in Raffles for the second part of my 2 weeks trip to Seychelles. Lovely hotel. Pros: Great breakfast, amazing buffet, professional staff, clean rooms, great management. Cons: Pool temperate was too warm sometimes, if 10% service is already included it's better to remove "gratuity" line from the bills.

This Seychelles hotel seeks to present guests with an escape where warm native Seychellois hospitality is infused with the enchanting touch of Raffles.

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.
