Raffles Praslin Recognized As Seychelles’ Leading Hotel at the World Travel Awards

Monday, November 26, 2012

Raffles Praslin recently won the Seychelles Leading Hotel accolade at the prestigious World Travel Awards 2012. The comprehensive World Travel Awards (WTA) programme, hailed as the ‘Oscars of the travel industry’ by the global media, highlights and rewards those travel brands that have made the greatest contribution to the industry in quality, innovation and service, over the past year.

Raffles Praslin was awarded at the WTA’s Asia, Australasia & Indian Ocean Ceremony 2012, which marked the final leg of WTA’s Grand Tour, a global search for the world’s leading travel brands.

Simon Hirst, General Manager of Raffles Praslin, Seychelles commented:
“It is a huge honour for us to receive this recognition, and being chosen by travel professionals and consumers as the Seychelles’ Leading Hotel, acknowledges the outstanding efforts of the team to achieve this level of excellence.

Our architecturally exquisite villas, legendary Raffles Butler service, excellent cuisine and distinctive Raffles Spa experiences, together with the warmth of the Seychellois people and ambience, create the overall exceptional experience for which we have been internationally recognised.

Raffles Praslin was also noted for its stunning geographic setting with many natural wonders nearby, one of them being the legendary Anse Lazio beach, only 5 minutes away from the resort, also recognised at the World Travel Awards as the Indian Ocean's Leading Beach Destination.”

The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. Today, the WTA brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.
