Raffles Praslin Seychelles Review

Nearly 1,700 feet of sugar sands front this tropical enclave of 86 sea- or mountain-view villas with massive bathrooms, large outdoor living spaces, private plunge pools, and butler service. For those who choose to emerge from their exclusive hideaways, complimentary water sports, a lovely spa, a gym offering classes and yoga, and three restaurants (including a breezy celebration of local cuisine) expertly cater to every request. There are also two giant pools (one is an infinity) and the beach, which has been celebrated throughout the world for its incomparable beauty. The rooftop lounge is the perfect perch from which to savor a cocktail and the sunset.
