The breathtaking Raffles Praslin Resort in the Seychelles

Updated on

Located half an hour away from the airport, on the northernmost tip of Praslin, the second-largest island of the Seychelles Archipelago, Raffles Praslin Seychelles in Anse Takamaka not only provides breathtaking views over the Indian Ocean but also an incredible lifestyle away from the fuss and bother of busy life.

Found upon a gorgeous hillside area, with frontage towards the Indian Ocean, Raffles Praslin comprises a total of 86 villas, including one- and two-bedrooms suites, each and every one of them being endowed with outdoor pavilion and private plunge pool. They also feature cozy beds, espresso machines, outdoor showers and baths with water views.

There is also the Losean Restaurant, able to provide buffet style-themed evening meals alongside contemporary Mediterranean cuisine with Indian Ocean influences.

The Curieuse Seafood Restaurant, as its name tells, provides freshly caught seafood, like lobster fish or sea fruit. Guests can also unwind at the Danzil Lounge Bar, which provides regular entertainment, with DJ or live band, or even at the rooftop lounge Takamaka Terrace, where they can enjoy impressive ranges of beverages and shishas, with gorgeous panoramas in the background.

In case you want to stay away from bars or restaurants, it all gets very simple: you can enjoy freshly cooked meals inside your own, private villa. Needless to mention, dining wise, Raffles Praslin is able to organize and provide meals virtually everywhere, from island barbecues to cabana dinners, private dinners on the beach or even onboard a yacht.

The list of available activities is equally plentiful, from the local spa to the gym. Guests can also embark on journeys into the Vallée de Mai to search for coco de mer. There are a lot of beaches here as well, like the nearby Anse Lazio, one of the most pristine beaches in the world, the superb Anse Takamaka and a lot more.

Furthermore, there’s the option to hop on a boat and head offshore for a bit of diving or snorkeling – you may meet giant tortoises at Curieuse. This equatorial paradise does come at a price, not that high to be honest – nightly rates at Raffles Praslin, Seychelles, start at €390 or around $509 at current exchange rates.
