Mr Vincent Lelay, Cluster General Manager of Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa and SO Sofitel Singapore has won the HAPA General Manager of the Year Award.
The HAPA Awards recognizes and rewards the crème de le crème of the hospitality industry at all levels around the region – dedicated in identifying personalities and establishments in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand that have shown a passion towards serving others through their dedication and drive.
The judging process was held in October 2016, when two sets of mystery judges stayed and dined at each property, experiencing the facilities and services, incognito. The judges used a scoring card to rate each property and those achieving a score higher than 90%, would be able to win the award in that particular category. Known as the Oscars of Hospitality, the HAPA Awards continues to be a trusted platform to distinguish the movers and shakers of the hospitality industry around the region.
