Offering an all-villa Seychelles luxury resort on the magnificent Praslin island, Raffles Praslin Seychelles has been noted by Forbes travel guide – one of America’s leading business magazine well known for its lists recognised worldwide – for its exceptional location, unique beachfront and unparalleled service and facilities.

This publication mainly reaches out to an audience composed of C-level executives, top management, high-end investors and those aspiring for corporate leadership.

It has described Raffles Praslin Seychelles as “easy to spend your time outdoors at the hotel – villas have sheltered pavilions with daybeds and dining tables, outdoor rain showers and private plunge pools.”

“Praslin is home to two unique beaches – white sand is dotted with dramatic granite formations – one of which is at Raffles’ doorstep,” highlights Forbes travel guide.

Raffles Praslin Seychelles general manager Simon Hirst has expressed the resort’s delight at being recognised by this prestigious publication, saying: “This is a wonderful achievement for the resort in its second year of operation. Our dedicated team is working to deliver the Raffles luxury standards, the personalised service and tailor-made experiences which with the warm, relaxed and welcoming Seychellois ambiance, all come together to grow our worldwide reputation.”

“Our aim is to ensure that our guests’ needs are anticipated and we make a point of creating a wow effect each step of the way so that from arrival to departure, their whole stay is memorable for a lifetime,” said Mr Hirst.

“The resort’s completely natural 500-metre beachfront setting has stunning Indian Ocean scenery, with crystal clear waters, awe-inspiring granite back-drops and ancient over-hanging Takamaka trees. As a leading beach hotel and resort, we offer a wide range of activities for families and couples alike, which allow them to feel at one with the natural beauty of Praslin,” he added.

Tourism and Culture Minister Alain St Ange has said the recognition of Seychelles and of its products has never been so apparent.

“Today Seychelles is visible, but our visibility is also matched with excellent products on the ground that has now been recognised by Forbes travel guide. This award is merited recognition of what Seychelles’ brand of tourism is achieving,” Minister St Ange said.
