ABU DHABI, — The Emirates Palace Spa has, once again, been crowned the ‘World’s Best Hotel Spa’ and ‘Abu Dhabi’s Best Hotel Spa’ at the 2016 World Spa Awards but, this year, the Spa also took home the ‘Middle East’s Best Hotel Spa’ award turning a much deserved spotlight onto luxurious spa and wellness travel to the UAE capital.
The exclusive red carpet ceremony was held at the Forte Village Resort Hotel in Sardinia, Italy. Commenting on the international recognition these honours bring to Abu Dhabi, Holger Schroth, General Manager at Emirates Palace, said: ‘To win such an international accolade once is a General Manager’s highest aspiration. To win it two years in a row is a testament to our team’s hard work and passion and a tribute to the already highly acclaimed VIP guest services at Emirates Palace. It’s also an assurance to guests that there is no better place to unwind in the world than Emirates Palace Spa’.
The awards are a sister event to the long-running World Traveller Awards, and the contenders are a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ of luxury self-care. Winning the awards for two consecutive years solidifies Emirates Palace Spa’s position as, not just the city’s premier health tourism destination, but also the world’s. Ira Malik, Group Director Spa Middle East & Africa of MSPA International, the Spa Management arm of Minor Hotels who independently manage Emirates Spa, says: “We are very pleased to receive these awards for the second year in a row. This is the reflection of the team’s dedication and hard-work.”
Emirates Palace, the iconic five-star hotel in the heart of Abu Dhabi, is recognised for exceeding guests’ expectations and its consistently outstanding guest reviews. Emirates Palace Spa features an array of superb spa escapes like the signature 24 Carat Gold Radiance Facial, and partners with exclusive brands, such as Forlle’d, Amra, Gentlemen’s Tonic and Bastien Gonzales.
