Best in Asia: InterContinental Hua Hin Resort Named Top
Luxury Beach Hotel at World Luxury Hotel Awards 2018
Hua Hin, Thailand, 14 November 2018 — Since first opening nearly a decade ago, InterContinental Hua Hin Resort has been commended several times as one of the region’s top travel and leisure destinations. As 2018 draws to an end, that trend continues – and in a big way. During a ceremony in Bali on 10 November for World Luxury Hotel Awards 2018, the resort earned another major accolade by winning top spot in the category ‘Luxury Beach Hotel, Continent Winner: Asia’.
This prestigious award affirms InterContinental Hua Hin Resort’s status as not only a top Thailand destination but also one of the best in Asia. Indeed, for any property to be a certified World Luxury Hotel Awards winner it must be one where guests are assured of the highest international standards in addition to world-class facilities and superior service.
On receiving the news, InterContinental Hua Hin Resort General Manager Michael Janssen remarked: ‘It’s heartening for us to know that our guests recognise and appreciate the hard work everyone at the resort puts in every single day. I’m extremely proud of our team for their commitment to providing guests with memorable, one-of-a-kind experiences.’ The GM added, ‘I also can say that winning this award will further encourage us to understand our guests even better, and in doing so delight them with intuitive and genuine hospitality during every stay.’
Established in 2006, the World Luxury Hotel Awards programme confers international recognition on the industry’s finest top-tier hotels, resorts, lodges and retreats. Each year more than 300,000 international travellers and hospitality professionals vote to select winners across a wide range of categories.
Apart from this year’s World Luxury Hotel Awards gong, other honours received by InterContinental Hua Hin Resort include 2013’s ‘Best Luxury Coastal Resort’, also from World Luxury Hotel Awards; ‘Best Thailand Hotel’ from Asia Pacific Hotel Awards 2013-2014; ‘Thailand’s Leading Resort 2015’ from World Travel Awards and ‘Thailand’s Leading Resort 2018’ from World Travel Awards.
