Le Duc de Praslin Hotel & Villas bags prestigious Agoda Award




Le Duc de Praslin Hotel & Villas continues to wow its guests, picking up numerous awards along the way. The quaint little homegrown hotel has set the benchmark in Seychellois hospitality for a number of years now and continues to demarcate itself as a top-notch establishment.
It has picked up the The Agoda Gold Circle Award, presented to properties based on several criteria, which include aggregate customer reviews, competitive pricing, utilisation of Agoda.com http://agoda.com/’s custom-built Yield Control System (YCS), and a deep understanding of the complexities of the online booking industry.
Robert Payet, the owner/general manager of Le Duc de Praslin, got a pleasant surprise last week when he received the award from Anupa Basanta Lala, Agoda’s senior market manager ­for Mauritius, Seychelles & Reunion.

“Le Duc is delighted to be the proud recipient of yet another prestigious tourism award. This is proof that Seychellois homegrown hotels can achieve excellence. It is through a set vision, investment, hard work and perseverance that we have managed to reach this level. I owe this latest tribute to my dedicated team of hard working Seychellois staff who are making our guests happy and our country proud,” said Mr Payet.

“This latest accolade received by Le Duc de Praslin Hotel & Villas shows that those who work are duly recognised,” said Tourism and Culture Minister Alain St Ange, before adding that Robert Payet demonstrates positiveness in his work and this sells and gives him an edge always because negativity is remedy for failure.
