Raffles Opens on Praslin
Luxury hotel group Raffles has opened Raffles Praslin, its first property in the Indian Ocean.
The resort has 86 standard one- and two-bedroom villas – each with a private plunge pool, an outdoor pavilion with an additional resident’s bar and free WiFi. Guests also benefit from around-the-clock, multilingual butlers.
The resort's Curieuse Restaurant offers an extensive range of fresh seafood and grilled prime cuts, while the rooftop lounge Takamaka Terrace offers signature cocktails and shisha pipes. Personalised in-villa dining experiences are also available. The resort is also home to the chain’s first Raffles Spa.
Within the next 12 months Raffles is expected to open in the Maldives and Sanya in China. However, it is as yet unknown whether these resorts will open a dedicated Raffles Spa or instead opt for the notoriety of a renowned wellness brand.
