Seychelles establishment named for HolidayCheck accolade


A quaint Seychellois-owned, homegrown establishment, which boasts a complement of local staff, has won numerous accolades over the years.

Le Duc de Praslin Hotel & Villas has been singled out with a top award once again, this time by the popular German online travel forum, HolidayCheck. The award is discerned to establishments that have won excellent reviews with a high-scoring figure. The hotel was awarded a grade of 5.6/6 for 2016.

Prior to this, the most recent award the property received was the prestigious Tripadvisor “Hall of Fame Award for Excellence” and the Agoda Gold Circle Award.

Robert Payet, the Owner and General Manager of Le Duc de Praslin Hotel & Villas, is delighted by this new achievement.

“Le Duc continues to live up to its motto of ‘exceeding clients’ expectations,’ and we are proud to be the recipient of such a prestigious award. We are constantly innovating and bringing new products and services for our guests. Our staff, which comprises mostly of Seychellois, are fully dedicated in making our guests feel at home and enjoying the best holiday experience,” Mr. Payet said.

HolidayCheck is Europe’s biggest hotel reviews portal with up to 27 million site visits per month. It is the benchmark for all potential visitors to destinations worldwide with dedicated portals for Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Poland. It is considered as a reference point for travelers in these markets.
“The news that Le Duc de Praslin pulls the HolidayCheck award, as the world of tourism gathers at the Top Resa tourism trade fair in Paris, will bring added visibility for not only Le Duc de Praslin as a Seychelles home-grown beachside hotel, but also this recognition helps to keep Seychelles tourism ahead of the pack,” the Minister of Tourism and Culture, Alain St.Ange, said as he congratulated Robert Payet and his team for his continued success.

Le Duc de Praslin Hotel & Villas today boasts 43 rooms that cater specifically to honeymooners, families, and couples in search of an authentic, genuine Seychellois hospitality.
