#FriendsTravel Seychelles Raffles Praslin JESS Kalinowsky

Raffles Praslin Seychelles and its Pearl-Themed Spa

Let the countdown begin. The opening date for Raffles Praslin Seychelles— the wow-worthy new resort for the Indian Ocean island nation– is just days away. Come February 10, 2011, guests will be swooning over the ultra-luxe resort facilities on the exclusive island of Praslin. Case in point: the resort spa, themed after the “pearl,” which promises to be nothing short of sublime. Decorated in iridescent mother-of-pearl shell décor, the spa offers the signature “Pure Pearl” treatment, using crushed pearls as its exfoliating agent; therapeutic grade pearl powder is blended with tropical essences of organic ylang ylang and bergamot to buff the skin. The spa is the largest in the Seychelles archipelago.

We also like the sound of the ‘Champagne and Caviar’ treatment for couples, an indulgent treatment that begins with a 90-minute full-body massage followed by a Caviar Luxe Luminescence Facial. To maximize their blissed-out states, guests then get to relax in the spa suite’s Japanese-style soaking tub with a glass of champagne and 50 grams of Beluga Caviar.

Situated close the Vallée de Mai UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Raffles Praslin Seychelles features 86 villas with private plunge pools and spellbinding views of the Indian Ocean.  Book a one or two-bedroom villa suite and your clients will be reveling in round-the-clock Raffles Butler service.  Reservations:

Discounted First Class, Business Class, and Coach airfares worldwide.

Seychelles Honeymoon of a lifetime!
