Raffles Praslin Seychelles

By Conde Nast Traveler Thursday, March 03 08:42 PM

Right now, scoring some sunshine and a slice of sand would feel like winning the lottery. As luck would have it, Praslin, an emerald jungle on a crag of granite in the Seychelles, has a winning combination: a tropical location far, far away, off the east coast of Africa, and a brand-new resident, the Raffles Praslin.

The hotel is the embodiment of a shipwreck fantasy (albeit a luxury version), with 86 villas on a gentle slope of green overlooking the clear blues of the Indian Ocean. With a private plunge pool and 24-hour butler service, there are few reasons to leave your room. But when you do, there are miles of deserted beaches, coconut groves, and cinnamon plantations--the perfect combination of sun, sea, and spice.
