The St. David`s Hotel & Spa: Finalist In Health And Beauty Salon Awards 2001

Following major refurbishments and a re-launch of the Spa in November 2000, Sir Rocco Forte`s five-star hotel in Cardiff, The St David`s Hotel & Spa, is one of the most sought after Spa destinations in the UK. Its status as one of the UK`s leading destination spas has been established with a prestigious beauty industry award: The St David`s Hotel and Spa was a finalist for the Destination Spa category in the Health & Beauty Salon awards held in London on 9th September.

Since opening in January 1999, the hotel has already won no less than ten major awards, including the AA Hotel of the Year for Wales, a WOW Award for outstanding Customer Service and a listing in the Condé Nast Top 20 Coolest Hotels of the World. It was also recently ranked in the top 15 UK Business Hotels and is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.

Sir Rocco Forte`s new luxury hotel collection, Rocco Forte Hotels, was established in 1996 and the company`s name bears Sir Rocco`s initials. The success of hotels such as The St David`s Hotel and Spa in Cardiff and The Balmoral in Edinburgh has prompted him to embark on further UK projects - The Lowry Hotel in Manchester opened on 5th April this year.

Rocco Forte Hotels manages a collection of luxury hotels with different styles ranging from traditional to contemporary. Each hotel reflects its nationality and location and trades under its own name. The collection is linked together under the brand of Rocco Forte Hotels that represents attention to detail, quality and service delivery.
