An amazing honeymoon destination and fantastic hotel. What an experience and the Butler service is a must. Will not dissapoint at all. There are fantastic beaches near by and islands to visit if you feel the need to leave the resort. The villas are incredible and views are stunning. Food and staff are first class and make you feel extremely welcome and special. My wife and I did not want to leave and will try and get back there in the future.

We have stayed 8 nights during early July and very pleased with the overall experience. Having booked via a 3rd party, upon check-in we have been shown our room which was a bay view villa. We have requested if we could see an alternative and within 10 minutes we have been taken to a different room which we preferred the view better. Villas were modern, spacious, and maintaned well. The resort sits on a slope hence one would need continuous buggy service to get to places which is served 24/7 by the resort. Service quality is what can be expected from Raffles, attentive, professional and personal with little touches to make it a wholesome experience. Special thanks go to our butler Salim, Marc at the L'Ocean and Caroline for their impressive ethics and attention to detail, hope these comments reach to them. As we have stayed on Praslin island, can't comment on Mahe however Praslin and the surrounding islands are wonderful locations. Strongly recommend a car hire for a sight seeing of the rest of the island Lazio Beach and the likes and a boat trip to La Digue was a blissful experience. Weather was perfect to our taste, a few rainy days, a few windy days and a few clear blue skies and calm seas; giving us the full spectrum of the feel of the island. Attaching some pictures to the review hoping would serve as good examples to our lovely experience. We certainly hope to visit the Seychelles again.

Room Tip: After you visit the Anse Lazio beach, on your way out you will see road sign "zimbabwe". after a 5 minute drive through very steep and sharp corners, you will reach to highest peak of the island with impressive views; strongly recommend it. As the hotel sits on a slope, it is personal preference which view is better, our preference was to choose one on the steepest part of the resort with direct and open view of the bay.

As a family we have stayed at many 5 star resorts in the Indian Ocean and Caribbean over the last couple of decades and we have enjoyed them all. However, it has to be said that Raffles Praslin is probably the best yet. Our stay was 8 nights from 30th June to 8th July. We have two "mature" children of 21 and 17 and this vacation was probably one of the last we shall take as a full family, as our offspring start to fly the nest, so it was important that it was a great experience. We were not disappointed.
The staff were wonderful from the moment of our arrival and check in (easy as pie) to our eventual departure (sad.)
Special mentions must be made for Ashok, our butler who was brilliant and made sure everything happened on time. (He was like the dad (in a nice way) while I became one of the kids and just relaxed.)
Mr Joseph Lee (the manager) was extremely amenable and helpful.
Marc (the restaurant manager) was friendliness personified. while people like Lisa, Piason, Mukal, Jerry, Edmond by the beach, Ronny at the pool, Andrii and many others, did everything they could to make our stay as pleasant as possible.
The resort itself is what you would expect of the Raffles group. It is a true 5 star experience. I had read moans before we went about the cost of food, drinks etc, but everything has to be imported to the islands and this has to be passed on. I found the charges quite reasonable. One doesn't buy a Bentley and expect it to have a Mini's running costs!
Our Ocean View Villa had spectacular views across to Curieuse and was quite wonderfully well furnished, clean and spacious. The plunge pool being a real bonus along with the additional outside shower.
The food was quite excellent, I fully recommend the Lobster club sandwich at the pool bar. Yum!
The pools were quiet and very close to the lovely beach, Anse Takamaka.
Suffice to say we all had a wonderful time and will definitely return, which, with such a big world out there, is something we have never said before. It just may be that next time we will be a bigger family group. Grandkids etc lol.

Room Tip: Go for Ocean view, but all the villas are fab!

We had the chance to spend 3 excellent nights at Raffles in a one of their family Villa at sea level, with an easy beach access. We discovered and enjoyed their new menu concept of Curieuse Restaurant. It was a lovely gathering with friends.
The main pool was stunning. There was very pleasant selection of un-motorised water sports. During paddle surf, we had an incredible luck to spot 3 dolphins, 5 to 6 meters around us.
It was a memorable stay in Praslin
