A TROPICAL OASIS AT RAFFLES SEYCHELLES
The world’s only mid ocean islands created from granite, Seychelles is a tropical oasis of tranquillity and relaxation. Prepare to be awestruck at the stunning 5-star Raffles Seychelles situated on the north-eastern tip of Praslin, the second largest granite island in Seychelles. This luxury resort displays the island’s majestic beauty with rolling crystalline waves, warm sun, salty winds, shady palms and soft sand. All international flights arrive at Mahé and from there you have a number of transfer options to Praslin island.
The 115 islands of Seychelles are known for their beautiful beaches, hidden coves, coral reefs, and nature reserves. Situated on the pristine shores of Anse Takamaka, Raffles Seychelles is the ideal starting point for various activities, such as island hopping, snorkelling and diving.
This tropical oasis boasts 86 private pool villas, which are strewn across the hillside, offering stunning views of the Indian Ocean and nearby Curieuse Island. Designed to cater to every pleasurable whim, the villas are among the most spacious in Seychelles (at a minimum of 125 m²). Flooded with natural daylight, they have a spacious terrace with a private plunge pool and a bath strategically placed to soak up the incredible views. To get around you can choose between using the 24-hour buggy service or enjoying leisurely walks through the resort.
Island Hopping is a favourite excursion in Seychelles. Curieuse Island is a mere 10 min boat ride from Raffles Seychelles and is home to almost 500 Aldabra giant tortoises. Vallée de Mai is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its rare and indigenous species like the world’s only black parrot. At Aride Island you can discover the unspoiled beauty of the nature reserve and get a glimpse of what Seychelles looked like 250 years ago. La Digue Island, a short 15 min boat ride, is famous for its secluded beaches, diving and snorkelling.
