Suspended in the hillside above Takamaka Bay with views over the Indian Ocean to the Curieuse reserve islands, Raffles is easily the most luxurious place to stay on Praslin.
Its 86 villas give you lavish modern comfort, a private plunge pool and a 24-hour concierge service. What’s more the hotel is but a stone’s throw from one of the world’s most beautiful beaches; Anse Takamaka.
Each modern villa has an open-air balcony overlooking the gardens and sea. As well as your private plunge pool there are two infinity pools for afternoon lounging. The resort is well known for its sumptuous spa, with treatment rooms overlooking the tropical bush and crystal blue ocean.
In the evenings there are six restaurants to choose from, a shisha lounge or private dinners can be arranged on the beach.
A fifteen-minute ferry will take you to Curieuse Island, a diving and snorkelling paradise that is home to 500 giant tortoises.
