Romantic dinner laid out beneath the glittering stars of equatorial Africa.

Raffles Seychelles is all about living your most memorable life, precisely on your terms. That’s why Raffles Seychelles is proud to offer al fresco and bespoke private dining experiences at any location on Praslin Island. The experiences themselves are just as varied: a four-course romantic dinner laid out beneath the glittering stars of equatorial Africa, or an evening barbecue of fresh-caught seafood served at an impeccably laid table lit by the glow of a flickering campfire. You can even collaborate with expert chefs and mixologists for an atmospheric private cooking or cocktail class.

A celebration of international cocktail artistry

During the languid, sun-soaked hours of the Praslin midday, the Pool Restaurant & Bar becomes the most popular spot at the resort. Come for a laid-back lunch beside the curving, greenery-lined infinity pool, pausing to take a dip whenever the call of the sparkling waters becomes too irresistible. The drink menu is a celebration of international cocktail artistry, with drinks such as the highly recommended Praslin Sling, a resort special crafted with coconut milk, vanilla, kaffir lime and Raffles’s own Sipsmith gin.
