Raffles Praslin Seychelles Now Open
Raffels Hotels & Resort
Raffles Praslin - Open February 2011. Praslin is the second largest island in the 115 island archipelago of Seychelles, in the middle of the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa. The 30-hectare resort features 86 villas, an outstanding Raffles Spa and a plethora of dining options. Pristine white sandy beaches, blue waters of the Indian Ocean and an endless list of recreational facilities awaits your discovery at the resort. One- and two-bedroom villa suite options are complemented by signature round-the-clock Raffles Butler service. The new spa spanning almost 14,000 square feet at Raffles Praslin adopts the pearl theme and its signature treatment, Pure Pearl, uses crushed pearls as its exfoliating agent. Dining options includes Curieuse Restaurant serving fresh seafood and grilled prime cuts; Restaurant Losean featuring Mediterranean favorites, regional cuisine and traditional island Creole cuisine, and Losean Deli creating hampers for picnics. Rooftop lounge Takamaka Terrace serves a comprehensive selection of premium cognacs, whiskies, wine, classic cocktails and signature Raffles cocktails.

Situated on 500 meters of stunning beachfront, the resort and estates will be truly unique: private, relaxing, close to nature, yet offering the very best personalized services. In line with the Raffles philosophy of creating celebrated sanctuaries, the architecture will reflect chic resort style assimilated with practical features to capture the island breezes and encourage alfresco living. Designed to maximize the stunning views of the Indian Ocean with large windows and expansive verandas, these generously apportioned villas start at approximately $3 million US dollars.
