SEYCHELLES - Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa today announced its participation in Hilton Huanying, a tailored experience for all travelers of Chinese origin. The Hilton Worldwide program inspired by the Chinese word for "welcome" enables travelers  to book at Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa and other participating hotels with confidence, knowing the properties will meet cultural needs and expectations of Chinese travelers abroad.

Hilton Huanying includes three key touch points of the on-property experience - arrival, guest room and Breakfast at Hilton. Elements of the Hilton Huanying experience include a front desk team member fluent in Mandarin; guest room amenities such as a selection of Chinese teas and teakettles, slippers, and a dedicated television channel with Chinese programming; and breakfast items including congee, dim sum, and fried rice and noodles.

"We are very excited to be taking part in the Hilton Huanying program with Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa. Hopefully this accolade will introduce the resort to a wider range of guests," said Claus Steiner, Cluster General Manager - Seychelles Hotels.

Hilton Huanying was introduced in 2011 following research into the needs of international travelers and unique market insight resulting from the company's more than 20 years of experience operating in China.

Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa is one of more than 85 properties participating in Hilton Huanying around the world.
