Hotel Updates: Hilton Hotels, Seychelles

Hilton runs one Hundred!

As Hilton Wordwide is heading towards the company’s 100th Anniversary this Friday 31st May, the three Hilton Hotels in the Seychelles came together to honor this special occasion by a team run around Mahe.

 Over the last century, Hilton has grown from a single hotel in Texas, to more than 5,600 hotels and 17 brands in 113 countries and territories, with a portfolio that offers a variety of ideal experiences for every type of traveler and trip. 

As part of the centennial celebrations team members from Hilton Northolme Resort & Spa, Hilton Labriz Resort & Spa, and DoubleTree by Hilton Allamanda Resort & Spa ran around the whole island of Mahe. 

Mrs Julita Jeremie, the cluster Human Resources Director was the first brave runner on that Sunday morning and kicked off the 100 kilometer track at the Hilton Labriz Lounge jetty at Bel Hombre and was followed on her way towards Macabee by her colleagues on a Hilton truck . “It was a challenge as I am not a regular runner, but it was a lot of fun and I enjoyed spending time with the team in a different situation”. 

General Manager of Hilton Northolme Resort & Spa, Mr Daniele Fabbri is more used to the track north of his hotel as he runs it a few times a week. He participated in the special activity and followed his staff and colleagues from Silhouette around the island. “The team supported each other one by one with an exceptional spirit. I was impressed by the commitment and I’m proud to work with so many great people. We look forward to another 100 years of success with Hilton”.

Having reached this special milestone the three Hilton hotels have organized different events for the hotel’s guests and team members over the past few months. The team of Mr Fabbri planted 100 Chilli plants in the hotel’s organic garden, while General Manager at Hilton Labriz Resort & Spa Mr André Borg posed with his people underwater, before forming a floating human hundred.

The special anniversary marathon was the latest action in the series of activities and certainly the most challenging. ‘’Today showed Individual commitment leading to exceptional teamwork, I am extremely proud of this high performing team and we showcased all the Hilton values in a fantastic way’’ Operations Manager at Hilton Northolme, Mr Duncan Bond adds. The amazing performances will be crowned now with a private function at the Bel Ombre Jetty on Friday, 31st to which the President is expected.
