Following a rigorous voting period, The St. Regis Dubai, The Palm was awarded the much-coveted win as the World’s Leading New Hotel 2021 in the World Travel Awards.
This comes shortly after its recognition as the Middle East’s Leading New Hotel 2021 in October. Revered as the ‘Best Address on The Palm Jumeirah’, the spectacular hotel won a total of eight awards, with four respective wins and nominations, across various categories of both the World Travel Awards and World Spa Awards.
Proving its dominance in the industry, after only seven months since its initial launch, The St. Regis Dubai, The Palm was also nominated in two other categories of the World Travel Awards namely the Middle East’s Leading Luxury Hotel 2021 and Middle East’s Leading Hotel Suite 2021.
In the World Spa Awards, the hotel’s signature spa, Iridium Spa, was also chosen as the Middle East’s Best Hotel Spa 2021 and Dubai’s Best Hotel Spa 2021, with nominations across the World’s Best Hotel Spa and World’s Best New Hotel Spa categories as well. Further to that, its parent brand also emerged victorious with Iridium Spas across all St. Regis Hotels & Resorts properties chosen as the World’s Best Hotel Spa Brand in 2021.
Proud of the team’s continued achievements, Marwan Fadel, General Manager at The St. Regis Dubai, The Palm said: “Being recognized across various categories of such prestigious awards, within less than a year since our opening, is testament to the world-class guest experience we are committed to delivering. We look forward to achieving more recognition in the industry and performing even more exceptionally in the coming year. It has been a long year of recovering for the global tourism industry, hence, we also commend our counterparts and fellow nominees for putting their best foot forward”.
Speaking of the award, Graham E. Cooke, Founder of the World Travel Awards said: “Winning tourism’s top honour this year is more important and more valuable than ever before. With the welcome return of global tourism, the dominant trend among travellers is for extra indulgence and a determination to book with only the very best. And the very best is the 2021 world-level winners who now hold the ultimate hallmark of travel excellence”.
