Hotels in Beirut and Aqaba win World Travel Awards while new business hotel in Colombo is recognised at South Asian Travel Awards
Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts has scored a triple win with its properties in Beirut, Aqaba and Colombo receiving leading industry awards.

Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba has been named 'Jordan's Leading Resort' and Mövenpick Hotel Beirut has been crowned 'Lebanon's Leading Luxury Hotel', both at the recent World Travel Awards Middle East Ceremony 2017. The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry

At the same time, Mövenpick Hotel Colombo, which opened its doors earlier this year, has received the 'Leading Business Hotel in Sri Lanka' title at The South Asian Travel Awards 2017, fighting off stiff competition from renowned hospitality names in the country.

The accolades cement Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts' status as a leading hospitality group in the Middle East and Asia and recognise each winning property's commitment to high service standards and hospitality excellence, which are core to the company's values.

Named 'Jordan's Leading Resort' for the fourth year in a row, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Tala Bay Aqaba is a property that is constantly evolving its guest offering and recently launched new activities and facilities including a boot camp, yoga garden, jogging track, organic garden and outdoor cinema.

The resort, which is the only property in Jordan to be included in TripAdvisor's 'Top Hotels for Families in the Middle East' has also introduced 'Famolympics' for parents and children, a series of activities that range from treasure hunts and sandcastle making to private cooking classes with the resort's chefs.

Mövenpick Hotel Beirut, which boasts a stunning location on the Mediterranean Sea and features extensive facilities, was named 'Lebanon's Leading Resort' by the World Travel Awards every year from 2014 to 2016. Its new 'Lebanon's Leading Luxury Hotel'' accolade in 2017 reflects its ongoing reputation as one of Beirut's top destinations.

Mövenpick Hotel Colombo, which has 219 rooms and suites with stunning city and ocean views and a raft of facilities for corporate travellers, was crowned 'Leading Business Hotel in Sri Lanka' this month at The South Asian Travel Awards 2017 (SATA), an initiative that aims to encourage and improve customer service standards in the South Asian tourism industry.

The judging panel, comprising high-profile regional tourism and hotel experts, who evaluated the property after it received a high number of online votes, took into consideration guest reviews and company profile, plus its location, business, meeting and events facilities, proximity to business hubs and amenities for corporate travellers.

The new SATA accolade comes hot off the heels of Mövenpick Hotel Colombo winning the 'Sri Lanka's Leading Hotel 2017' and 'Best Presidential Suite 2017' categories at the World Travel Awards.
