« Great experience with some bumps »

The staff and the experience was amazing. Only gripe, despite having notified the hotel way in advance about dietary requirements and allergies, it took a few days for the kitchen to catch up and fully cater.

« Beautiful surroundings, lovely staff, loved the plunge pool. »

What can we say about this wonderful place? We had an absolutely fabulous time. It has everything you need for a relaxing and peaceful escape from all your cares. The facilities are well maintained and presented. All the staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly and are willing go the extra mile. Special mention to Angele, Alla, Rita, John, Varun, Rashika, Mayur, Manzell, Uday, Margarita, the lady housekeeper from Nepal and the guy who delivered our room service from Bangladesh (forgot their names).

« Wonderful hotel with a few glitches »

We had a wonderful room and mostly great stay. There was a problem with transfers to hotel which were supposed to be included but we had to work hard to get them included. Also a problem with a prebooking for a boat trip through the concierge that didn't seem to be prebooked but we were able to arrange on site. The food is wonderful and the facility and other service was great.

Dear Ms M., It was a pleasure to have you with us for your holiday at Praslin & thank you for taking out time to review us. The tranquil ambience of Raffles Seychelles and the magical views of Indian Ocean create an unforgettable setting for guest to relax and unwind. We are pleased to know that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and had a wonderful experience. Due to an inaccurate Air Seychelles domestic flight schedule on the day of your arrival lead to you arriving on Praslin earlier than what we anticipated and planned for. As we advised you to take a taxi to arrive at the hotel & later we paid for it, this was done to save the time it would have taken to send the car from the hotel for your pick-up. Regarding the boat trip the issue was due to the weather conditions & confusion with regards to the pick-up time as it was booked for 9 a.m. and later you requested for 7 a.m. which was arranged. We look forward to welcome you back soon at one of our Raffles property. Sincerely, Raffles Seychelles Team

« Fantastic »

Everything was great EXCEPT for the transportation to and from our residence to where meals were. Either we had a 15-20 minute wait or they forgot to pick us up altogether. We have been to many islands, but the food here was extremely expensive for what we received.

Dear Ms K., It was a pleasure to have you with us at Raffles Seychelles & thank you for taking out time to review us. We are delighted that you have spent a lovely time with us in our little paradise. Prices in Seychelles (and especially on remote island) are linked to transportation costs (and different from main island) and it is the reason that we trying to locally source our products when available. Also the point that you have raised about the delay in buggy service has left you frustrated. We have just received 10 additional buggies to ease our services. We look forward to welcome you back at one of our Raffles property. Sincerely, Raffles Seychelles Team

« Honeymoon Trip »

Amazing resort with extremely good service and hospitality. Private Villa with Pool and Ocean View is amazing, all staff and service is top standard. Only thing that can be improved is the beach is not good for swimming and there is no nice seating/sun beds by the beach.

Dear Mr M., It was a pleasure to have you with us for your honeymoon at Praslin & thank you for taking out time to review us. Built over 30 acres all are villas offer privacy, plunge pools & great views of the Indian Ocean. Our team and the services they offer is our biggest strength. Your compliments and appreciation about the hotel & our staff is deeply appreciated and have been communicated to all the members of our team. Despite to be usually one of the most quiet and clean beach all year around; your visit encountered some strong wind and high tides in the middle of the day (tides changing everyday by 1/2 hour) making our beach not as pleasant as usual. We have created a new setting with sunbeds right next to the beach on a raised platform to avoid high tides. Sincere apologies once again for missed airport pick-up & delay in getting your villa ready. We look forward to welcome you back soon at one of our Raffles property. Sincerely, Raffles Seychelles Team

« Lovely room and facilities »

We had a gorgeous room with wonderful facilities. The pool and beach areas are lovely. We had a lovely time. Improvements: Breakfast and food was lovely but lunch and Asian buffet were expensive for what it was. After staying at other hotels in the Seychelles, I feel more little touches could be made and an attempt to make it feel more personal, we were given little gifts on the bed and baths ran with petals etc in other hotels. It would be nice if staff showed an interest in guests when they check in, nobody asked us why we were staying and it was our honeymoon. Also to improve I would suggest more buggies are needed around the pool and restaurant area, with less drivers on their phones and talking with the guests instead. We were surprised that the concierge closed at 4. When we did go down one morning we were asked to wait. Someone else came in after and the girl served them before us and then another couple came in and also jumped the queue. We were left waiting for quite a long time. Despite this we had a lovely stay and would happily come back again.

« Great food, good hotel. »

A decent stay, a number of problems you would not expect from a 5 star hotel like the internal and external phone systems being down for a few days and very slow service. The food was of a very high standard.

Dear Mr F., Thank you for taking the time to share your review. We are disappointed to read that your experience at our resort was average. Each day we endeavour to work towards delighting our guests and clearly we fell short in this case. Please accept my apology on letting you and ourselves down. We are sorry that we were unable to meet your expectations on many fronts. This is not our norm and we must learn from your feedback. Each opportunity to hear feedback from our guests is a golden moment for us to reflect and learn to become better. We believe guests only share feedback when they feel an organisation and its people are committed to self introspection and improvement. Thank you for your faith in our ability to make necessary amends. Be rest assured that we are taking appropriate measures & you will see the differences when you visit us next. Sincerely, Raffles Seychelles Team

« Raffles made our Honeymoon absolutely perfect in EVERY SINGLE WAY! »

From the moment we arrived to Raffles, we were cared for, listened to, and waited on like royalty. The staff could not have been more helpful and there was not a single instance when we were not greeted by a staff member, asking if we needed anything. The food was incredible, the villa was stunning and the service was the best part. Edmond at the pool was our absolute favorite! He was so kind, helpful and our drinks were always cold and lunch was always hot thanks to him. He was FANTASTIC! Alice at the front desk was first class and helped us continuously and Michele on the Service Staff went above and beyond what she needed to do for us. We had so much attention and special treatment that we were spoiled. The views and weather made our honeymoon enjoyable but the Raffles Resort and staff made it UNFORGETTABLE! We are from Chicago and it took a very long time to get there but if we ever find the opportunity to make the trip again, we won't stay anywhere else except for Raffles! Thank you to all of the staff for making our Honeymoon perfect!

« Great place and fantastic hospitality! »

We stayed in a hotel for 6 nights. Food, atmosphere and hospitality without complaint. Different types of restaurants, fantastic breakfasts and a good pool bar. Service is at a very high level. Great pools and very nice beach and a large selection of additional activities that can be organized with the help of a concierge (thank you very much Ms. Efna!). The children did not want to come home :-). We would like to come again to this hotel.

« Great stay, but not phenomenal. »

My husband and I stayed at Raffles with 2 other couples. Seychelles is a beautiful location but the resort did not provide a 5-star experience and fell short of our expectations. The rooms were spacious and very clean. We had a wonderful view. The pool service was extremely slow. We waited for quite some time just to order and the food + beverages took long to arrive. There was zero urgency from the staff. Buggy service was also slow. We booked an excursion by private boat the La Digue and waited over 45 minutes for a buggy to pick us up from the beach and ended up having to walk because of the poor communication between staff. What completely turned us off from ever returning was the horrendous price gouging. We were quoted 3 different prices for 1 service. While on vacation, I do not think anyone likes to feel as though they are being taken advantage of, especially while staying at a luxury resort.

Dear Michelle, Thank you for taking the time to share your below feedback with us, it is through details comments that we are able to tackle issues and improve our services. Please accept my sincere apologies for the inconvenience encountered during your stay with us, and rest assured that actions have been taken to ensure the same does not happen again in the future inconveniencing other guests. Your experience in no way reflects the service we aim to provide, and a corrective action plan has been put in place to make sure communication is improved within the team in order to provide seamless service, to have less delays, and to ensure the entire team communicates the same message, (with the accurate pricing in this case). I apologise once again, and hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again in the future. Kind regards, Salwa Razzouk Resort Manager
