Hotel Overview

Where

On the coast of Anse Takamaka on the beautiful island of Praslin. Take a catamaran from Mahe (less than 1 hour) or arrive in style on a 15-minute scenic seaplane flight, followed by a 20-30 minute drive to the resort.

Rooms at Raffles Praslin

There are 86 spacious and inviting villas, each with its own private plunge pool and an outdoor pavilion with sundeck beds, ideal for soaking up the jaw-dropping views over the Indian Ocean, the white sandy beaches and the lush green hills. (If the views inspire your inner artist, there’s an easel and paper set up ready for you).

Food and facilities

Dine on the best of Seychellois cuisine alongside dishes from around the world. Curieuse offers pan-Asian specialities, while Losean’s menu features mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine with a Creole twist. In the evening, head to the terrace to enjoy a Praslin Sling (the Seychellois take on the Singapore Sling), as the sun sets and the sky fills with stars. There are two infinity pools, and if you have children in tow, the Sugar Palm kids club will keep them entertained, with activities from crab hunting and Creole fishing to kayaking in the aquamarine waters and hiking around the many scenic trails.

Activities at Raffles Praslin

Where to start? Just a short walk away is Anse Lazio, regularly voted one of the best beaches in the world, which also has a sheltered reef that’s a good spot for snorkelling. A mere 15-minute boat ride will take you to La Digue, an island full of beautiful, secluded beaches perfect for relaxing on - or for something more active, take a cycling tour around the island. You also shouldn’t miss a visit the Vallée de Mai in the heart of the island, a UNESCO world heritage site that’s home to a natural palm forest where the famous coco de mer grows, as well as unique wildlife such as the Seychelles bronze gecko. Speaking of unique wildlife, see giant tortoises on the nearby island of Curieuse- there is a population of nearly 500 here.
