Saturday 22, January 2011
Jumeirah, the Dubai-based luxury hotel group and member of Dubai Holding, has yet again received the honour of two major accolades at the Business Traveller Awards, Germany held in Frankfurt on Friday 14th January 2011.
The awards, considered to be the most prestigious in the hospitality sector, recognise industry excellence across multiple categories and regions.
This year, Jumeirah Beach Hotel was named as the Best Hotel in the Middle East for the second year in a row; the popular beachside resort has now been awarded the title five times since opening in 1997, having received the award in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2010.
In addition, Jumeirah Group was named Best Hotel Group in the Middle East for the second consecutive year. This represents the third time the Group has won this award and is a further demonstration of the consistent success of the home-grown Dubai-based company.
The awards come at the start of a year in which Jumeirah Group expects to open at least six new hotels, including Jumeirah Zabeel Saray in Dubai, Jumeirah Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, Jumeirah Dhevanafushi and Jumeirah Vitavelli in the Maldives, Jumeirah Frankfurt in Germany as well as potential openings in Shanghai, Azerbaijan and Kuwait.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
