DUKES COLLECTION takes home prestigious accolades at World Travel Awards 2017
Both of DUKES COLLECTION’s five-star properties, DUKES LONDON and DUKES DUBAI, was voted as ‘England’s Leading Hotel’ and ‘Middle East’s Leading New Hotel’ respectively at the prestigious World Travel Awards 2017.
The World Travel Awards serve to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence and both categories contained some of the tourism industry’s biggest names, highlighting the success of the DUKES COLLECTION’s wins. Judged by a team of hospitality experts, peers and consumers, the World Travel Awards is a highly respected accolade.
Debrah Dhugga, Managing Director of the DUKES COLLECTION, described the World Travel Awards as the Oscars of the travel industry and was delighted with the success. Talking of the win, Debrah said: “At DUKES LONDON we have been investing a lot in our property over the last 12 months, so it’s really special for the team to pick up this award. It’s fantastic to take something back to both DUKES LONDON and DUKES DUBAI to celebrate all of the teams’ hard work.”
This year, DUKES LONDON is proud to have opened a brand-new restaurant, GBR, overseen by award-winning head chef Nigel Mendham and serving up British classics with a modern twist. The London hotel has also recently partnered with heritage Champagne brand, Pommery, launching a series of Pommery Experiences available in GBR, including a Champagne pairing menu and carefully curated Champagne cocktails. In Dubai, 2017 has seen DUKES successfully settle onto the Palm Jumeriah with its sister property DUKES DUBAI. The resort offers fantastic facilities and endless activities, including the DUKESY Kids’ Club and complimentary Pool Butler, who ensures suite guests continue to receive outstanding service while relaxing by one of the hotel’s pools.
DUKES COLLECTION is delighted to add these World Travel Award accolades to its name and looks forward to offering five-star excellence to guests at both properties in 2018.
