Hotel Updates: Indian Ocean Lodge

Indian Ocean Lodge awarded by HolidayCheck for outstanding reviews

Seychelles’ own Indian Ocean Lodge has been recognised by one of Europe’s top travel review websites for its consistently excellent guest ratings.

The small Praslin hotel at Grand Anse has again been awarded “Recommended” status by HolidayCheck.com, the world’s largest German-speaking travel review site.

With strong reviews praising the hotel’s staff and service, the Indian Ocean Lodge can proudly display HolidayCheck’s Recommended certificate on its website and other platforms, said Nicole St Ange, the hotel’s PR, Branding and Communications Manager. 

“As a small, locally owned and operated hotel, we’re proud that the Indian Ocean Lodge has been able to continually exceed guests’ expectations in line with its HolidayCheck guest reviews,” St Ange said. “In our specific niche in the market, trust is a huge part of the decision-making process, and recognition like this firmly establishes that our hotel offers a distinct and authentic experience with terrific value for money.”

HolidayCheck is a rating and booking portal that allows holidaymakers to find and book the best possible experiences thanks to authentic reviews, the expertise of its own travel agency and the knowledge of its online travel community.

The site has more than 8.7 million written reviews, 9 million user photos and videos of more than 700,000 hotels in its database, and its popular travel forum boasts up to 2.3 million visitors per month.

The German tourism market for inbound visitors to Seychelles continues to surge, with nearly 35,000 arrivals as of the end of May, far and away outpacing second-place France with just over 22,000 visitors, followed by the United Kingdom (13,606) and Italy (12,131).
