Socially-Distant Destinations: Raffles Seychelles

1 min read

Looking for a socially-distant getaway? Opt for the white sands, opal-hued oceans and lush green hills of the Seychelles, and go in search of a peaceful escape on the magical island of Praslin

Raffles Seychelles is located on the beautiful north-eastern tip of Praslin, the second largest granite island in the Seychelles, and is only fifteen minutes by plane or helicopter from Mahé Island. A handful of private pool villas are scattered across the island and offer panoramic views of the verdant landscape and azure sea — you couldn’t ask for a more idyllic setting.

Days spent exploring the island are accented by barefoot strolls along the beach, lazy lunches that last all afternoon, and replenishing massages at the spa. If you’re seeking adventure, Raffles Seychelles offers one-of-a-kind experiences with the UNESCO World Heritage Site Vallée de Mai (a natural palm forest full of rare species) on its doorstep, tortoise spotting on Curieuse Island and the breathtaking Anse Lazio visa located nearby.

When you’re not enjoying nature’s hidden gems — think untouched islands with pristine shores flourishing in tropical vegetation — indulge in Raffles renowned luxury and find your own slice of paradise. From intimate fine dining to a 24 hour butler service and your own beachfront villa to lounge in and soak up the unrivalled views (or the year-round sunshine), this resort exudes with charm and tranquility that feels faraway from real life. Peaceful, private and absolute perfection.
