In more detail

As you'd expect, the resort's accommodation is delightfully luxurious. Indeed, its collection of contemporary villas or suites are some of the most spacious in the Seychelles, each one nestled into the hillside and boasting panoramic views across the crystalline ocean. The private pools don't hurt, either. All villas feature a private terrace, double walk-in wardrobes, iPod docking station, DVD player, LED television, complimentary WiFi, barbecue grill, yoga mat, Nespresso coffee machines and luxury bathrooms with private outdoor rain shower, indoor shower and separate bathtub. Guests also have the use of Raffles butler service for added indulgence.

The dining options are equally superb, with an emphasis on fresh seafood and local Creole specialities, with choices ranging from fine dining to sumptuous buffets and relaxed poolside dining. Don't miss the chance to indulge with a Raffles signature cocktail from the Takamaka Terrace in the evening, overlooking the bay and under a blanket of stars.

Then, between meals, there are all sorts of activities on sight to help fill your time, from the relaxing to the adventurous. Perhaps spend your days relaxing on the gorgeous beach, by the pool or in the wonderful Raffles Spa where 12 treatment pavilions, a state-of-the-art fitness studio, steam room and sauna offer the chance to truly disconnect. Alternatively, head out on an island-hopping adventure, take to the ocean on a guided dive or snorkelling trip or indulge your inner explorer with a trip to the Valle de Mai – a UNSCO World Heritage site home to a natural palm forest, endemic coco de mer trees and rare black parrots found only in the Seychelles.
