World Travel Awards Honours Hilton Seychelles With Two Prestigious Titles


SEYCHELLES – July 2017 – Two Hilton Seychelles resorts have won coveted titles at the globally-recognised World Travel Awards 2017.
For the second year in a row, Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa has been awarded the title of Seychelles' Leading Hotel Suite for its two-bedroom presidential villa.
Gregory Thierion, general manager said: “We are proud of the presidential villa at our property, and are privileged to be awarded with the title of Leading Hotel Suite in the Seychelles. The villa is a popular choice for groups due to its large private swimming pool and outdoor deck.”
Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa is known for its elegant wooden finish in all villas, and the panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, Beau Vallon Bay and Silhouette Island from the private decks. Both bathrooms are equipped with a whirlpool bath, while the spacious living area is furnished with contemporary décor, original Seychellois artwork and a plush sofa.
Also winning the title for a second year is Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa, which was recognised by World Travel Awards as Seychelles' Leading Green Resort 2017.
Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa is the only resort on Silhouette Island, a marine national park since 1987 and home to a huge diversity of indigenous fauna and flora. Guests can go on a selection of nature trails where they can marvel at the untouched equatorial mist forest full of botanical treasures such as orchids the pitcher-plant, and the incense tree.
Andre Borg, general manager said: “It is an honour to be recognised for our efforts in promoting the prosperity of Silhouette Island's biodiversity. Over 92% of the island has been designated as a protected area, and we have partnered with Island Development Company & Island Conservation Society to help preserve its flora and fauna.”
Now in its 24th year, World Travel Awards is regarded as a milestone event by hotels and resorts in the region for recognising excellence in hospitality. The ceremony held on July 8 was attended by the industry's key players as well as members of media.
Both Hilton Seychelles properties will now compete in the corresponding world categories, winners of which will be announced at the World Travel Awards Grand Final in December.
