    Raffles Seychelles is fantastic. It is well deserving of urs five star rating. But it is aging in a few respects. The buggy cart paths throughout the property need to be power washed. The mortar holding together the rock walls has turned an ugly black. The wood decks all around the property are aging. They should be replaced with an ageless synthetic product like hardi-plank.

    This property is located on the beautiful Praslin Island and has its own beach. We stayed at an oceanview villa and everything was on point. The villa was huge with its own pool, outside private shower, inside shower and soaking tub with a view of the bay. The amenities of the hotel are first class: gym, spa, 3 restaurants, bikes, beach sport equipment, etc. The hotel staff is amazing! Everyone is there to ensure all guests are treated special and receive a truly luxurious experience.

    Great Property, Great Stay

    My husband and I stayed at Raffles for four nights at the end of our honeymoon and had a great time. The room was beautiful - spacious, clean, and comfortable - and we enjoyed a meal at all of the restaurants during the course of our stay. The food was expensive (most of the Seychelles are), but tasty, and the service was generally great and the ambiance very enjoyable. We felt safe, cared for, and relaxed and would definitely come back to Raffles on our next trip to Africa.

    Exceptional Stay

    Raffles Seychelles was impeccable. The staff we interacted with were helpful, friendly, and welcoming. The villas are wonderful and very private. The grounds are beautiful and unlike any other resort we have stayed at. The beach was well maintained, service was great, and it felt very secluded.

    Absolutely amazing. From the rooms, to the views, to the staff, to the facilities. Fantastic buffet breakfast with so many choices. Spectacular modern villas with beautiful views. Extremely friendly staff and easy to get around in complimentary buggy service or walking. Would highly recommend!!

    Raffles!! Our room was clean and neatly organised. We loved little notes, which were about traditions or rituals of seychelles, they give us after cleaning. All staffs were very friendly and nice; we appreciate especially to Richard in the reception desk. Foods were awesome, delicious, and well decorated. Spa/massage made us feel relaxed right away. Overall, it's quite pricy but totally worth it!

    We stayed at Raffles for our honeymoon. We were upgraded to a panoramic view villa - which was fantastic. The staff and food at the resort were fantastic. Overall, very happy with the stay.

    Raffles is amazing. We spent two nights for our honeymoon and they were extremely accommodating, given our early arrival. Since we traveled in the offseason and it was our honeymoon, the manager was kind enough to upgrade our room to a partial ocean view and made our experience truly special. The resort has gorgeous rooms, with a Nespresso bar, private pool, outdoor rain shower and even an easel for fun artwork! They also provide snorkel masks, paddle boards, kayaks and bikes to explore. We had the absolute best time. Oh, and breakfast was AMAZING!!

    The villas, beach and staff are all incredible. Panoramic villa had amazing view w tons of privacy. The beach has several different areas so you can create your own remote hangout. Staff did a great job of anticipating our needs several times without feeling too in your face. When we were there it was clearly not full, so we had all the space and attention we needed. We stayed at the other top brand 5 star and found this to be just as good if not better for less money.
