Dusit Thani Maldives has won the Luxury Water Villa Resort category at the eighth annual World Luxury Hotel Awards 2014, held at The Bay Hotel in Cape Town, South Africa.
Established in 2006, the prestigious World Luxury Hotel Awards celebrates excellence in the luxury hotel sector and rewards establishments who deliver and uphold the standards of international luxury. Over 1,000 hotels from 145 countries were nominated to participate in the awards this year.
The results are based upon online voting by international tour operators, travel agents and hotel guests on a country and global basis. Entrants are judged on service delivery and effective management, and each nominated property was provided with a dedicated voting page on the awards’ website.
According to Thanos Lionsatos, Director of Sales and Marketing “It is a matter of immense pride to have received this honour from the World Luxury Hotel Awards. This is a testimony to the fact that we strive for excellence in catering to the needs of the discerning luxury market. This latest accolade encourages us to bring even more innovation to the guest experience here at the resort.”
