The coveted distinction was officially presented at a high profile gala dinner that saw the attendance of industry luminaries and representatives of competing hotel brands from eighteen different countries.
These awards are operated by the organisation that has run the International Property Awards for the last 18 years, with the aim of seeking out the best hotels from each country including those that have been purpose-built for conventions, spa, airports or resorts. Other categories cover hotel sustainability, architecture, interior design, marketing and website.
Receiving the award at the prestigious event, Mr Michael Sengol, Chief Executive Officer of Meritus Hotels & Resorts, comments “We are privileged and grateful for this exciting distinction. To emerge as the overall champion in the Best Hotel category is yet another testament to our continued passion for service excellence in the midst of the fast-growing and highly competitive hospitality industry.”
Later this year, top-scoring winners from the Asia Pacific Hotel Awards will compete against other winning companies from Europe, Africa, the Americas and Arabia to find the ultimate World’s Best in each category. The final results will be revealed at a gala dinner presentation in London.
Stuart Shield, president of the International Hotel Awards, says, “We are delighted to enter the second year of the stand alone Hotel Awards with such a superb level of entries from across the length and breadth of the Asia Pacific region - both in number and quality. It will be really interesting to see how the region stands up to global competition when we judge the contenders for the World’s Best awards.”
