Raffles Hotel & Resort

In the heart of the island of Praslin, aptly referred to as the mythological and idyllic ‘Garden of Eden’, are 86 contemporary and luxurious villas, some of the most spacious in the Seychelles.
Each villa at Raffles Praslin features a private outdoor pavilion, plunge pool and balcony to soak up breathtaking views of the opal-hued ocean, white sandy beach and lush green hills.

The resort is approx. 15 minutes shuttle plane ride from Mahé, followed by a 20 minutes drive to the resort OR approx. 45 minutes ferry ride from Mahé, followed by a 30 minutes drive to the resort. Pre-arrival and post-departure experience: Serviced Raffles Lounge on Mahé prior to flight to Praslin.  

The 86 luxurious and contemporary villas at Raffles Praslin represent some of the largest accommodation in the archipelago, ranging from 125 to 275 square metres (1345 – 2960 square feet). Thoughtfully spread across gently sloping hills, these villas combine privacy with breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and the island’s lush and tropical greenery.

Each villa features an outdoor pavilion with sun-loungers, dining table and private plunge pool, while an easel with sketching paper encourages inspired artists to capture the beautiful views.
