For the Little Ones
Every year, Santa arrives from the North Pole, bearing presents for the young residents at Raffles Seychelles. On Christmas Day, Santa will surprise us with his return and celebration on the shores of Anse Takamaka. Be sure not to miss his grand arrival. Our Sugar Palm Kids Club Team has arranged an exciting festive programme featuring activities such as themed cooking classes, art sessions, movie nights and many other memorable experiences. Alike resident guests, kids are also welcomed with their own unique amenities to make them feel welcomed. Additionally, our young residents will have their own designated kids' area with babysitters during our New Year’s Eve Gala to ensure they are not left out of the dazzling festivities by relishing in a child-friendly environment close to their parents.
