Raffles Seychelles, Praslin Island
10 days @ Raffles, Praslin
The staff referred to us by name after the first day. Friendly, courteous and professional service was provided at all times. Our preferenes were remembered and implemented each day without our asking i.e. I was served a latte each morning with grapefruit juice and my husband's coffee cup was removed because he doesn't drink coffee or tea in the mornings. This is probably one of the most expensive hotels in which we have stayed even compared to The One and Only in Mauritius and Cape Town; however, the staff do everything possible to ensure you have a wonderful relaxing time.

This is hotel was amazing from start to finish - the resort is excellently maintained, and the staff were absolutely brilliant. We stayed for 5 nights, and were so sad to leave. We cannot wait to go back. This place is paradise!
Arminder, gb5 night trip
Raffles Seychelles, Praslin Island
Property and resort was beautiful. Service leaves lot to be desired. Quite apparent that the Concierge staff is hand and glove with outside excursion providers who give sub standard service and excursions at extremely high prices.
Amol, in3 night trip
Raffles Seychelles, Praslin Island
This was a trip of a lifetime and by far the best hotel experience we’ve ever had! Every detail has been executed with precision; check-in, food, service, the spa... the villas are amazing with plunge pool, privacy and all the amenities u can think of... worth every penny!

A wonderful stay!
We had a beautiful, spacious villa with fantastic views of Curieuse island. The sea was warm and calm. Breakfasts were excellent as was most of the dishes we sampled.
