Luxury Included Resort Company Takes Home Gold Award for Best Overseas Hotel at Awards Ceremony
Sandals Resorts has scooped the Gold Award for ‘Best Overseas Hotel’ for Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort at the annual Meetings and Incentive Travel Industry Awards.
Sandals Royal Bahamian came up against major international hotels including W Barcelona, Hotel Arts Barcelona, Atlantis the Palm Dubai and Four Seasons Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, to secure gold at The Meetings and Incentive Travel Industry’s Oscars at a lavish ceremony in London on Friday 2 March. The award was presented by breakfast TV star, Kate Garraway, at the Battersea Evolution.
Karl Thompson, Managing Director at Unique Vacations UK commented: “We are delighted to receive this award and we are extremely grateful to everyone who took the time to vote for Sandals Resorts to win such a major industry accolade. We have made a big impact in the MICE and group travel sector over the last few years but this will help strengthen our position in this market even more. This is also a result of an aggressive groups strategy delivered over the last few years and I am delighted for the UK Groups team who are as much recipients of this award as the resort.”
The M&IT Industry Awards recognise and reward excellence, and are the result of voting by UK based event organisers and the readers of Meetings & Incentive Travel magazine – with votes audited and verified by the independent Audit Bureau of Circulations (ABC). The M&IT Awards are the oldest established awards programme in the meetings industry.
