Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare to host World Travel Awards Ceremony in June

The Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare will host the World Travel Awards Africa and Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony 2015 later this month.

The resort on south end of Mahe in Baie Lazare in the Seychelles will host the prestigious red carpet event on 20th June, 2015 and will welcome leaders of the hospitality and travel industry and VIPs.

Graham Cooke, the President of the World Travel Awards, explained:

"It has been a long held ambition for World Travel Awards to visit the Seychelles and I am delighted to reveal Kempinski Seychelles Resort Baie Lazare will welcome our Africa and Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony in June.

"It will be an honour for us to welcome regional hospitality leaders to our event."

The luxury beachfront resort is nestled under the granite hillside and offers breathtaking views of the sparkling crystal clear waters of the bay. The property has 150 rooms and suites and guests relax amid tranquil natural surroundings made up of a white sand beach and a tropical lagoon that winds its way around 63 hectares of lush gardens.

Holidaymakers can work out at the 24-hour fitness centre; choose from the wide range of fun watersports such as scuba diving, snorkelling and kayaking; drop the kids off at the Kempinski Kids Club which has its own shaded pool and variety of exciting activities; or unwind with a rejuvenating treatment at Kempinski The Spa which offers a secluded sanctuary within lush gardens and an extensive menu of treatments and services.

Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles' Minister for Tourism and Culture, commented:

"Seychelles is proud to be hosting the prestigious World Travel Awards African and Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony 2015 at the Kempinski Seychelles Resort on Saturday, June 20th.

"This is a fine example of Africa doing for Africa, and the Vanilla Islands doing for the Vanilla Islands, a concept that I have long held dear, and this is an excellent example of this process in action."

Mr St.Ange also added:

"At Kempinski Seychelles Resort, participants in this ultimate travel event will have an opportunity to taste Seychelles' hospitality at its very best and showcase the African and Indian Ocean region's hospitality products for the diversity, authenticity and excellence they represent."

The Seychelles is an island nation located in the Indian Ocean, approximately 900 miles east of mainland Africa. The island nation spans an archipelago of 115 islands which feature verdant green mountains, huge granite boulders, pristine white sand palm-fringed beaches, crystal clear azure ocean waters, and a tropical climate.
