Plan A Heavenly Seychelles Honeymoon

  |   By Alison McGill

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have brought world attention to the gorgeous Seychelles Islands were they honeymooned last month. The couple stayed in a private villa on the North Island and I actually called Seychelles as one of my top picks for Catherine and William to honeymoon. An amazing new hotel has just opened on the island of Praslin, one made for a decadent post-wedding escape—Raffles Praslin Seychelles. I recently stayed at Raffles new Paris property, Le Royal Monceau, and can tell you first hand that service and luxury is paramount.  The resort is a 15-minute helicopter ride from the main island of Mahé and features 86 villas, most with heavenly view of the Indian Ocean.

Sweet dreams in Raffles Praslin ocean view villa.

A particular standout is the Raffles Spa, which is focused on wellness. There are 13 treatment rooms in total; six are open air…how divine! Sounds like a heavenly honeymoon spot to me.

An open air spa suite...*sigh.*
