Boutique and Luxury Twin Island Holiday - Mahe & Praslin

Raffles Praslin Seychelles - private pool & deck Raffles Praslin - PanoramicTwin Villa Massage on Chalet deck - Carana Beach Hotel

Combining the two main islands of Seychelles - Mahé and Praslin - this delightful twin-island itinerary allows the perfect balance between discovery and relaxation. On Mahé, take a full island tour including to the Morne Seychelles National Park; visit Victoria, the smallest capital in the world and its botanical garden; or take an excursion to the Sainte Anne Marine Park including Moyenne Island. While on Praslin a visit to the Vallee de Mai is a must - a UNESCO World Heritage site where the Coco de Mer nut grows, the world's largest seed. Day trips are possible to other islands, including 'laid back' La Digue, as well as to other small islands, such as Curieuse, many of which are nature reserves.

On Mahé, enjoy lovely boutique accommodation at the boutique Carana Beach Hotel. Set in its own picturesque bay, this small 40-room property has been designed by its Seychellois owner to offer a blend of modern twists on traditional architecture, combined with a contemporary, chic feel. As well as genuine Seychelles hospitality and excellent cuisine, there's a lovely spa as well as several private pool chalets. At Raffles Praslin Seychelles we recommend a Partial Oceanview Villa as the lead-in room category so as to fully experience the magnificent ocean views and glorious sunrises from your private pool and deck. The emphasis here is on exquisite dining as well as relaxation whether it's lazing by the pool or on the beach, or taking a pampering treatment at the award-winning spa.

Our experienced team have stayed at both resorts and will help guide you to your preferred choice of villa and tailor-make your preferred Seychelles island-hopping experience.

The price quoted is based on June 2019 and is intended as a guide; it includes inter-island flights between Mahé and Praslin, all private car transfers and return international flights from London Heathrow to Seychelles. At Raffles, your stay includes an upgrade to a Partial Oceanview Villa - a better room category than the lead-in room in our experience. The length of stay at each hotel may be varied, depending on personal requirements.
