« A relaxing honeymoon »

Overall, it was a good experience staying at Raffles. We would do it again. The staff was proactive and very communicative...maybe a little too communicative, but in general great facilities and experience.

« Very good but let down in a few fixable ways. »

Beautiful resort and villas. Few tweaks to make it better could be: - have a clearer image of what the resort wants to be and who you wish to come there. For example to DJ jars against some of the more romantic aspects. - offer a la carte menus at breakfast for the cooked to order items. - offer a tour of the resort on the first day. - management drinks could be refined. When we were there managers spoke to a small number of guests at length rather than spending a short time with more guests.

Dear, I booked an ocean view villa through your website and I was so excited to stay at Raffles as my wife and I decided to spend our first day in our honey moon at Raffles. Unfortunately, I experienced what was not expected when I first checked in and found the villa I booked online is completely different from the one the receptionist sent me to, and to be specific there was someone called Alice in my stay between the 29th to the 30th of Aug. At the begging, Alice was so nice and my wife and I were really so excited to stay at Raffles but when we first checked in to a completely different category we were really shocked. I called Alice and I told her this is not what we payed for, we payed for an fully ocean view villa where there are no trees covering the ocean view and we even showed her the pic on raffles.com website. her response was really far from our expectation when she said the trees are already grown up and this is what you payed for. We asked for a downgrade and then she said you won't get back any of your money back. She not only lied to us about the category, she also treated us as uneducated couples who won't differentiate what they payed for. She lied us, manipulated us and treated us like kids. There was someone called Winston, a driver who helped us picked the room we payed for eventually. I explain what happened with me to the director I think his name was Shan and he promised to open an investigation about what happened and hope you will take my message into consideration.

« Excellent facilities, average service experience »

Beautiful pool villa and excellent location on the island. Good / warm service at beach &restaurant areas. We took a tour to the nearby Turtle island which was very entertaining. Issues: Transfer services were proposed prior arrival and unfortunately inappropriate: 5 days wait to receive confirmation, late arrival of car pick up at the pier. We were on a honeymoon and were told that the hotel would make it a special moment. The arrival welcome was very awkward: one employee indicated "nobody is perfect", when referring to his nationality..which I happened to share. 3 staff also enquired about our wedding date: if Raffles needs proof of wedding, better ask the wedding certificate clearly. The counterpart for these questions was the "special moment": a chocolate cake / a box of chocolates and 2 "love swans" made of towels. This is basically one box of chocolate better than what is offered by Sofitel Abu Dhabi, with the latter not asking questions and making interesting proposals for additional service. There was no further honeymoon related service proposal during our stay. We asked for a nearby Creole restaurant which we read about from the internet and is within 5 min walking distance from the pool / beach area. We were given a wrong direction by the Front desk, leaving us to walk at night for 15 minutes on the unlit main road. The security guard at the entrance also provided confusing directions, probably due to language skills. Generally speaking, front desk and concierge were too busy with logistics and did not deliver quality service. Recommendation: Anse Lazio beach is nearby but a taxi is required to climb the steep hill besides the hotel. The hotel could easily provide a daily return shuttle to the beach.

« Special and unique »

We had a very pleasant time at Raffles. The resort, facilities and accommodation met our expectations fully. Fisrt class. Tremendous service from the reception team, especially Alla who was magnificent. The team at the pool and beach made our journey very special. Very professional and extremely friendly: especially, Rody, Jose, Edomd, and Roni. Breakfast was excellent but a la carte menu very expensive and limited. At those prices food needs to be of the highest standard. The Indian Tandoori evening was quite nice but then again very expensive. Also, did not appreciate (exception, not the rule) the somewhat pushy and sleezy way one of the restaurant staff (I believe his name was Mohammad) inviting us to a cocktail ("I have a special drink for you!)" at the Tandoori evening only for us to understand that we were actually charged for it. Does not befit your high standards of elegant service. But then again that was a minor incident and he was very nice otherwise. His enthusiasm to generate business needs to be slighlty adjusted!

« Great resort, fantastic views, very friendly staff »

We were luck to stay in a Panoramic View Villa with a truly amazing view of the coast and Curieuse Island. The staff was very forthcoming and friendly and staff and hotel management was always interested in how to make our stay even more comfortable. The resort has a personal touch and feels quite intimate despite the size of the area it occupies. Breakfast was our favorite meal and it is quite amazing. The other restaurant options for Dinner offer enough variation for a week's stay. Overall we had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay.

« Paradise in the middle of Pardise »

Staying at the Raffles was a true 5-star experience for our honeymoon. The staff was friendly and courteous, the rooms and grounds were beautiful, and the dining was very nice. We highly recommend the spa experience as well. To note, it is not very accessible to leave the resort. Though this was not a problem for us, those staying longer or looking for different dining options might wish do to this more.

The rooms were fantastic. However the service was a little lacking except for some great individuals like mahmoud. Beach was a little disappointing

« EXCELLENT HOTEL & OVERALL EXPERIENCE »

It is the best hotel we have ever stayed at and we have traveled all over the world! The view from our room was stunning, the breakfast was excellent but what made us the best impression was the hospitality, friendliness, smiling faces and politeness of the employees, from the bell boys to the management.

The hotel is undoubtedly the best in Praslin. The week that we spent there was everything we hoped it would be - relaxing atmosphere, great food, friendly and helpful staff.

« Generally great staff and service with a few lacking areas. »

The stay was really great, however, the check out process was pretty bad with a few fundamental business issues. During the check in process when we were introduced to our rooms, we were told that international calls would be free. However, during check out, not only were we charged for these calls, but the manager on site and the general manager were not able to reverse the charges. They also made some comments about the rates being posted online, which contradicts the whole purpose of a full service resort.
