Hotels operated by leading hospitality company Dusit International came out top in five categories at this year’s World Luxury Hotel Awards 2016 held in Doha, Qatar, on October 29.
As voted for by the public, dusitD2 nairobi was named, for the second year running, Kenya’s top Luxury Business Hotel; Dusit Thani Hua Hin won the award for best Luxury Diplomatic Hotel in Thailand; and Dusit Thani Guam Resort topped three prestigious categories, namely Luxury Golf Resort, Luxury City Hotel, and Luxury Hotel.
Organized annually, the World Luxury Hotel Awards is a renowned global organization that provides recognition to luxury hotels for their world-class facilities and excellent services. Awards are presented to luxury hotels in over 50 different categories on a country, regional and global basis. Public vote selects all winners, reflecting genuine recognition for the hard work and dedication of hotel staff and hotel standards.
Located in the heart of the Pacific Ocean, in Guam’s Tumon Bay, Dusit Thani Guam Resort is an island retreat comprising 421 well-appointed rooms, suites and villas overlooking lush tropical gardens, a pristine beach, and crystal clear waters; dusitD2 Nairobi is a vibrant city hotel where style, entertainment and art converge in a convenient location a short drive from the city’s central business district; and Dusit Thani Hua Hin offers state-of-the-art meeting and banqueting facilities, an Olympic-size swimming pool, award-winning restaurants, and more luxury amenities in a secluded setting by the beach in Thailand’s famed seaside resort town.
Speaking about the awards, Dusit International’s Chief Operating Officer, Mr Lim Boon Kwee, said, “To win five awards for three of our properties, as voted for by the public, really highlights the quality and diversity of our hospitality offerings. From our city-based hotels to our beachside and island resorts, we take great pride in our signature gracious service and are always delighted when this is recognized by renowned programmes such as the World Luxury Hotel Awards. As our portfolio of hotels and resorts continues to expand around the globe, with properties opening across each of our four distinguished brands, including Dusit Thani, dusitD2, Dusit Princess, and Dusit Devarana, we are confident there will be many more awards to come.”
