Double win for Hurawalhi Maldives at Asia Pacific Hotel Awards 2019
Hurawalhi Maldives has won two accolades at the regional edition of the International Hotel Awards.
At the Asia Pacific Hotel Awards 2019, Hurawalhi was named the Best Luxury Hotel and the Best Luxury Resort Hotel in Maldives.
Officially inaugurated in January 2016, the five-star Hurawalhi resort is accessible by a 40-minute scenic seaplane flight from the main airport, and offers 90 villas, including 60 Ocean Villas and 30 Beach Villas, for grown-ups who are seeking luxury and innovation. The villas are stylishly and beautifully conceived featuring soothing décor, sumptuous linens on king size beds, bleached wooden floors, and private terraces with panoramic views.
There is an ocean of delights to take in at Hurawalhi: dining at 5.8 Undersea Restaurant, snuggling up with your darling under a blanket or sparkling stars on the iconic Dream Island sandbank, falling in love with the plethora of marine life on the island’s doorstep – in fact, one visit to the resort is hardly enough to experience it all.
The International Hotel Awards are the international five-star standard of hotel ratings. It is the only organisation to provide five-star accolades at an international level. The International Hotel Awards global competition determines the finest hotels and hospitality companies in the world.
The International Hotel Awards were developed to identify, highlight and reward excellence throughout the global hospitality industry throughout a wide range of areas. In addition to categories for several types of specialty hotels and categories by hotel size, there are also categories for best hotel architecture, construction, interior design, marketing and website.
The awards are split into regions covering Asia Pacific, Arabia and Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and UK. Participants enter at their relevant national level and are judged by a highly experienced team of professionals who cover the whole range of hospitality disciplines. Companies selected as winners are invited to attend a glittering awards dinner in their region and have the right to use the prestigious logo in their marketing.
The awards are open to hoteliers, hotel developers and builders, interior designers, architects, public relations companies, advertising agencies and web designers. Hotels under development can be entered at any stage of construction provided planning approval has been granted. Companies may submit single or multiple entries.
There are 17 categories to choose from. Five-star awards for each category are awarded on a national level before going on to compete on a regional level. The regional winners are automatically entered into the overall International Awards, which ultimately determine the world’s finest resorts and hotels.
