Jumeirah takes away consumer accolades

Jumeirah celebrated a record four accolades - two each for Madinat Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach Hotel, in the 2006 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards. In the Best Luxury World category, Mina A’ Salam and Dar Al Masyaf of Madinat Jumeirah, The Arabian Resort of Dubai, were voted at number 3 and 45 respectively, whilst Jumeirah Beach Hotel was ranked number 17.

In the Best Service World category, Jumeirah Beach Hotel also received an award, placing number 4 overall.

Now in its 5th year, the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards honor the world’s best hotels, earning their distinction from those who know them best - real travelers.

Unlike any other hotel awards programs that survey perhaps thousands of people, the TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice winners are uniquely ‘selected’ by millions of travelers from around the world who provide their real and unbiased reviews or opinions about hotels on tripadvisor.com? and across the Web.

Bill Walshe, Chief Marketing and Business Innovation Officer of Jumeirah, said he was delighted with outstanding results for the Group in the 2006 poll.


‘The TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards are amongst the most sought-after in the international hotel industry and to receive four luxury and service awards is a fantastic and fitting result as we embark on our 10th year of operation.”

‘At Jumeirah, we believe luxury and service are about individuality and unique experiences - the main sentiment behind our core essence to ‘Stay Different’.

‘We are incredibly pleased therefore, with such positive and encouraging feedback from our valued guests and look forward to earning their continued support as we grow our portfolio of luxury hotels over the coming years.’

Michele Perry, Director of Communications for TripAdvisor, said; ‘The 2006 Travelers’ Choice winners are once again singled out for their spectacular service and extraordinary value.

‘Most hotel awards programs honor the most luxurious and opulent hotels, but because Travelers’ Choice awards are determined by millions of real travelers from around the world, the winners tend to be outstanding properties that are within reach for the average traveler.’
