Spa

The Raffles Spa is a haven of peace, relaxation and rejuvenation. Steps away from the coastline of Anse Takamaka, amidst stunning surroundings, it is carefully designed to calm the spirit and awaken the senses. The luxurious spa features 13 Treatment Pavilions, each showcasing the spectacular view of the blue ocean, tropical gardens and dramatic granite boulders. Two spa suites, a first in the Seychelles, are fitted with steam showers, Japanese soaking tubs, and observation decks where guests can enjoy stunning vistas in privacy.

A tranquil spa garden makes the ideal spot for pre- and post-spa relaxation. Set among natural rock formations and high above the water, even the journey to the treatment pavilions is an intrinsic part of the Raffles Spa experience. At 1,234 square metres this is the largest spa in the archipelago, and the closest spa to the Indian Ocean.

Our Philosophy
Raffles Spa takes its inspiration from the pearl – found in abundance in local waters. It has a reputed ability to calm the spirit, open the heart chakra, stabilize emotions and rejuvenate the skin. These properties serve as an inspiration for our Raffles Spa, from where the pearl nets and sparkling waters are within sight of the Spa treatment pavilions. Like a pearl that begins its life as a grain of sand, Raffles Spa takes its guests though a transformation - an enriching journey of renewal and rejuvenation.

Products 
The Raffles Spa uses Kerstin Florian products for most beauty treatments. A therapeutic grade pearl powder is used for The Pure Pearl Signature Treatment.
