For the first time ever, an ‘international five-stars’ will be issued to a number of outstanding hotels. The inaugural European Hotel Awards 2011 in association with Bloomberg Television have completed judging and the InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel has been informed that it is amongst the winning companies.
Successful entrants have been invited to attend a high profile Gala Presentation Dinner at the Savoy Hotel in London on 18th January 2012. The InterContinental Hotel will then discover whether they have won a five-star award or a highly commended award in the categories of ‘Best Resort Hotel’ & ‘Best Spa Hotel’.
The event is part of the ‘International Property Awards’ which has been established for 18 years with the ‘Award Winners’ logo as a recognised symbol of excellence throughout the global industry. The organisers decided to launch a specific programme for the hospitality industry due to an increasing number of entries within its commercial categories. Demand for inclusion has been so great that each category quickly filled with the required number of entrants.
Attaining one of these coveted awards is indisputable evidence that the InterContinental Aphrodite Hills Resort Hotel is capable of beating some exceedingly strong contenders within the European hospitality arena.
Highest scoring winners from the European Hotel Awards are now being re-judged against other winning companies from Asia Pacific, Africa, the Americas and Arabia to find the ultimate ‘World’s Best’ in each category.
The judging panel consists of 20 professionals whose collective knowledge of the hospitality industry is second to none. This year’s judges include James Bacon, Google UK Account Manager; Peter Crome, Managing Director of Skibo Castle in Scotland; Mike McNamara of the Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS); David Dalby of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and Rebecca Johnson of Bloomberg TV (Hotel Section). The judges report that the quality of submissions has been extremely high, giving them a difficult task in selecting the winners.
