The Jumeirah Beach Hotel, part of Dubai based luxury hospitality group Jumeirah International, has been voted ‘Best Foreign Hotel’ in a survey of readers of the prestigious UK national newspaper The Daily Telegraph in London, earlier this week.
The Telegraph Travel Awards were established five years ago and have quickly become the pinnacle of tourism achievement in the United Kingdom. An outside independent consulting firm oversees the awards to ensure accuracy and strictly monitors the special questionnaire issued to readers of The Daily Telegraph, one of the most respected English-language newspapers in Europe.
The Daily Telegraph is one of Britain’s largest daily newspapers reaching over a million readers with The Sunday Telegraph being the UK’s second largest selling quality Sunday newspaper with a circulation of close to 800,000.
The awards were presented at a reception in London recently conducted by Graham Boynton, the Telegraph’s Travel Editor, and presented by well-known entertainer and actor Graham Norton. The event was well attended by senior representatives from the international travel and tourism industry.
Since its establishment in1997, Jumeirah International has won over 65 international travel & tourism awards, with a regular increase year on year. The awards have been received from around the world, highlighting Dubai as a truly international destination. Winner of two Condé Nast Traveller awards - ‘Best Hotel in the World’ and ‘Number One Hotel in the World’ - The Jumeirah Beach Hotel also won the award for ‘Best Resort Hotel in the World’ at the TMO Awards in London earlier this year and scooped two awards during the Business Traveller UK awards last month for ‘Best Resort Hotel in the World’ and ‘Best Business Hotel in the Middle East’.
