is located in the Seychelles
The Seychelles is a group of islands in the Indian Ocean around 2000km from the coast of Kenya. Praslin is the second largest island in the group, situated 40km northeast of the international airport on Mahe.
Set in the peaceful northwest of the island, Raffles Praslin is a large and upmarket resort with access to some of the best beaches on the islands.
The resort is centred around a cluster of main buildings with extensive bar, lounge and dining areas, leading out to a lovely large swimming pool. There is also a spa, gym and kiddie club.
Guest accommodation is in 86 large villas ranged up the hillside, each with a private swimming pool.
Activities include swimming, kayaking, paddle-boarding, sailing, diving, snorkelling and turtle-hatching. Day trips around the island are also possible.
The main potential downsides at Raffles Praslin are the high prices, the large size of the resort, the slightly bland design of the main areas and the slight potential for adverse weather Nov/Apr.Prices
