A luxury oasis in the heart of the Seychelles:
Opened in 2011, Raffles Seychelles has been included in Forbes Travel Guide’s Top 10 Beach Resorts around the World and Condé Nast Readers’ Choice – Best Hotels in the Middle East, Africa and Indian Ocean, as well as winning World’s Leading Luxury Villa Resort at the World Travel Awards.
Tucked away in blissful seclusion, Raffles Seychelles is nestled amongst lush greenery, gentle slopes of stunning granite formation and breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean. The resort is an oasis of calm and comfort, with facilities and service designed to create a haven of peace and relaxation for guests.
The 86 luxurious and contemporary villas at Raffles Seychelles represent some of the largest accommodation in the archipelago. Thoughtfully spread across gently sloping hills, these villas combine privacy with breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean and the island’s lush and tropical greenery.
Each villa features an outdoor pavilion with sun-loungers, dining table and private plunge pool, while an easel with sketching paper encourages inspired artists to capture the beautiful views.
WELLNESS & SPA
Raffles Spa is a haven of peace, relaxation and rejuvenation. Steps away from the coastline of Anse Takamaka, amidst stunning surroundings, it is carefully designed to calm the spirit and awaken the senses. The luxurious spa features 12 treatment pavilions, showcasing the spectacular view of the blue ocean, tropical gardens and dramatic granite boulders. Two spa suites, a first in the Seychelles, are fitted with steam showers, Japanese soaking tubs and observation decks where guests can enjoy stuning vistas in privacy.
A tranquil spa garden makes the ideal spot for pre- and post-spa relaxation. Set among natural rock formations and high above the water, even the journey to the treatment pavilions is an intrinsic part of the Raffles Spa experience. At 1,234 square metres this is the largest spa in the archipelago, and the closest spa to the Indian Ocean.
The magnificence and beauty of the lotus is admired by cultures across the world. Elegantly delicate at first glance, the flower’s daily transformation is an inspiring symbol of revitalisation and raw natural strength. It begins as a bud of pure vitality beneath the water’s surface. At sunrise, it breaks through into the fresh air, radiant in full bloom, then retires once more to the calm stillness of the water when night falls.
Raffles Spa Journeys are a considered mix between traditional and local methods, each ready to be expertly personalised to ensure that your sensory escape is everything you hoped for and more.
