Situated on the idyllic island of Praslin in the warm Indian Ocean, Raffles Seychelles comprises 86 luxurious villas dotted along stretches of white sand. This award-winning resort combines a peaceful ambiance with ultimate comfort, creating the perfect island paradise.
Spacious and Serene
Each spacious villa features its own mini bar, iPod docking station, outdoor terrace, rain shower and private plunge pool. Choose between one and two bedrooms, with spectacular views of either the dazzling ocean or the lush, tropical greenery. Along with the host of sumptuous amenities available, the villas include additional features such as artists’ easels and yoga mats, while the complimentary butler service ensures your complete contentment.
A Culinary Adventure
The sophisticated Losean restaurant offers a range of international breakfast options every morning, and mouth-watering Creole cuisine each night. The intimate and aptly-named Sushi Room serves up the very best of this Japanese delicacy, while elsewhere at the Curieuse restaurant you can enjoy a variety of Thai, Indian and Chinese dishes served beneath the stars. Enjoy a laid-back lunch at the Pool Restaurant and Bar, which offers various light bites, or head to Pti Zil Beach Bar to sample a range of beverages. Come evening, you can enjoy live entertainment and tempting cocktails at the Danzil Lounge, or breathtaking views from the rooftop Takamaka Terrace.
Spoil Yourself in the Seychelles
Take advantage of the resort’s fabulous spa, which features experience showers, whirlpools, a steam room and sauna, together with an outdoor lounge and soaking pool from which to marvel at the spectacular views. Enjoy a relaxing and refreshing treatment from one of the resort’s 12 pavilions.
Raffles has a range of watersports on offer, and many boat excursions available. Explore the natural splendour of the island on one of the hiking trails, or join one of the resort’s fascinating and entertaining activities, such as crab hunting and Creole fishing.

Find out what our clients have to say about their experiences
We have been using Azure to arrange our holidays for over 12 years. Every year usually twice a year, sometimes more, we rely on the experienced team at Chester to provide expert information on our chosen destinations. Be it a return to our established favorites in Barbados and Dubai or a new and exiting destination chosen from Azures brochure it is always handled in a friendly and competent manner. The small details are not missed such as do we need late check out or early arrival, which can make such a difference after sometimes long hours travelling. For us using Azure takes the uncertainty out of booking holidays.
We have been booking our holidays through Azure for 10 years and we can thoroughly recommend them. The Azure team arrange amazing holidays, well chosen destinations and hotels with a tailored itinerary that runs like clockwork with so many wonderful extras, it really takes the time and stress out of planning. When the weather has disrupted our journeys, their 24 hour service has provided us with 5* rescues! Nothing is too much trouble for Azure staff and the same goes for all the staff we have met on our Azure holidays which really are out of this world. We continue to recommend your company and all your wonderful team and look forward to our next holiday with you.
My first experience with Azure was when they came to my rescue when my family and I were stranded abroad on holiday without accommodation, their professionalism and ability to make things happen at very very short notice was second to none. They were very knowledgeable and were able to utilise their many relationships within the industry to get things resolved for me within an hour. I can't praise them enough for rescuing my family's holiday and making it a truly memorable time. Since then the team always do their best to make my holidays the best they can possibly be based on their own vast travel knowledge and experiences. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and wouldn't use anyone else for luxurious travel.
