In a ceremony held at the Langham Hotel, west London last week, Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa was awarded with The International Considerate Hotel of the Year award – one of several prizes given away at the Considerate Hotel of the Year Awards.
Considerate Hoteliers marketing director Xenia Hohenlohe said “Any hotel which has a marine biologist in charge of its green team is clearly serious about being a considerate hotelier and it’s fitting that a hotelier from a part of the world where climate change is already having a major impact takes this award”.
Trenython Manor in Cornwall was the winner of the UK Considerate Hotel of the Year and The Draycott in London took the Considerate Marketing Initiative of the Year award. Some other prizes presented at the ceremony include: The Good Egg for overall contribution to environmental awareness and sustainability won by Zac Goldsmith, the MP for Richmond Park & North Kingston and Bryn Elltyd Eco Guest House in Snowdonia winning the Considerate Green Team of the Year award. Green Champion of the Year went to One Aldwych’s Gary Lohan.
