ROSEWOOD CORNICHE CELEBRATED AT THE MIDDLE EAST WORLD TRAVEL AWARDS
Jeddah property wins Middle East’s Leading Luxury Hotel, Saudi Arabia’s Leading Business Hotel
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, 6 May, 2014: Rosewood Corniche has seen off stiff competition to be recognised as the Middle East’s Leading Luxury Hotel and Saudi Arabia’s Leading Business Hotel at this year’s Middle East World Travel Awards in a prestigious ceremony in Dubai, UAE this week.
Jeddah’s ultra luxury hotel came out on top in the both categories at the event in the JW Marriott Marquis hotel, reinforcing its position as one of the Kingdom’s most celebrated hotels.
On the sidelines of the gala ceremony, Hans-Peter Leitzke, Managing Director of Rosewood Corniche gave praise to his loyal staff who have helped raise the bar of hotel service in Saudi Arabia for the last seven years. “When we opened our doors for the first time in 2007 it was with the intention to deliver the very best in personalised services for every guest,” said Leitzke.
“We are delighted to bring these two awards back to Jeddah and celebrate with the team because it reflects their hard work, dedication and commitment. There is no doubt that Rosewood Hotels have a unique way of looking after their guests and we’re thrilled that our hospitality standards are being recognised in the Middle East.”
The World Travel Awards acknowledge and reward excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry, and are recognised globally as a trademark of quality where winners set the standard to which all others seek.
Rosewood Corniche has been a consistent winner of independent awards around the region since it was awarded Saudi Arabia’s Leading Hotel at the World Travel Awards in 2009.
Since then, the property has won a host of awards and was most recently recognised by TripAdvisor.com, the world’s largest travel website, as one of the top ten hotels in Saudi Arabia at the 2014 Traveller’s Choice Awards.
Added Leitzke, “Endorsements from peers in the travel industry and winning awards of this nature helps motivate staff to continue working hard in order to exceed guest experiences and expectations. I offer heartfelt thanks to the judges at the World Travel Awards and congratulations to our fellow winners.”
