'Wow factor’ moments are ten-a-penny when it comes to the Seychelles but Raffles Seychelles is a particular favourite here at Turquoise. 86 Pool Villas stand sentinel over a panorama of vivid azure waters and gleaming white sand. The standards are exceptional, the service even more so and it has been recognised as one of the ‘Best New Hotels in the World’ by Condé Nast Traveller.
A stay here is a truly sublime experience. Bringing a unique hillside pool villa concept to Praslin, this is luxurious island-living at its most glorious. Impeccably appointed villas look out over a view which is simply breathtaking. All have generous, open-air living areas with outdoor dining, comfy furnishings and private pools. The villas all offer a very similar standard when it comes to design and style. However, for truly magnificent views, we suggest the Oceanview or Panoramic Pool Villa. The Raffles One and Two Bedroom Villas take prime position and include a round-the-clock butler service.
Dining cleverly fuses local culture and cuisine, and each restaurant creates its own unique atmosphere. For a fun, casual Seychellois vibe, head to the Pool Restaurant & Bar; known for fabulous Creole cuisine. Losean translates as ocean in Creole and an airy, breezy breakfast offering transforms into an elegant gastronomic affair by night. Tickle the taste buds with Pan-Asian flavours that spread from India to South-East Asia at Curieuse.
For an intimate dining experience, head to the eight-table Sushi Room and witness the chef preparing the catch of the day creating an assortment of Sushi and Sashimi offering a well rounded Japanese cuisine.
For total relaxation, head to the Raffles Spa. Just steps from the breathtaking beach, this space is designed to calm the senses and awaken the spirit. 12 treatment pavilions showcase magical views and the tranquil spa garden, set amongst the natural rock formations, is the perfect place to retreat and reflect. For those who like to mingle with fellow guests, there are two beautiful infinity pools and wide choice of activities including snorkelling, kayaking, diving, fishing and boat excursions.
Raffles Praslin has its own helipad. Departing from Mahe International Airport, guests will be able to enjoy a scenic 15-minute private helicopter flight, with incredible aerial views of the archipelago, and an exclusive arrival experience - landing directly at the resort’s premises, adjacent to the stunning Indian Ocean.
Turquoise Honeymooners will enjoy a honeymoon villa set up, a complimentary bottle of Champagne and a one hour couples massage once during their stay.
Guests are advised that a copy of the marriage certificate must be forwarded at the time of booking and presented at check-in as proof of eligibility for the offer.
