Nestled in secluded 30-acre grounds on the tropical island of Praslin, Raffles Seychelles sits between jungle-cloaked mountains and the powdery sands of Anse Takamaka.
Book a helicopter transfer to arrive in style at this all-villa luxury retreat, which attracts well-heeled holidaymakers from around the world for its legendary Raffles service, fabulous facilities and spectacular views of the Indian Ocean.
The hotel’s three dining venues offer an eclectic range of gourmet style cuisine. Start the day at Losean’s vast breakfast buffet, before tucking into casual lunchtime salads and sandwiches at the Pool Restaurant & Bar. The Seychelles’ only Asian restaurant, Curieuse, is a romantic spot for open-air dinners and even has a sophisticated glass-sided sushi bar. Thirsty? Head to the chic Danzil Bar Lounge and sip freshly mixed cocktails over breathtaking ocean views.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding how to while away your days at this luxury escape. Outdoor adventurers can explore the jungle of Vallee de Mai or visit the nearby islands of La Digue and Curieuse. Closer to home you can try a fantastic range of watersports, take a cooking class or ask the hotel to arrange diving excursions and golf. Those who prefer to spend their time relaxing can soak up the sun on the idyllic 500-metre stretch of beach or by the Seychelles’ largest pool. The award-winning spa offers pampering massages in ocean-view pavilions, while little ones are kept entertained at the dedicated kids’ club.
The hotel’s 86 contemporary one- and two-bedroom villas are all extremely spacious and their gently sloping position affords magnificent views over the gardens or the Indian Ocean. All come with private plunge pools, king-sized beds, dressing rooms, outdoor rain showers and soaking tubs – plus thoughtful touches like a yoga mat and an easel with an art kit to help enrich guests’ downtime. For the ultimate splurge, the enormous beachfront villas sit just steps from the beach and have spacious living and dining areas.
