ITB Berlin 2015: Four Seasons Resort Dubai to welcome World Travel Awards Middle East Gala Ceremony

After an exhaustive search of some of the finest properties in the region, World Travel Awards has revealed Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach will host the Middle East Gala Ceremony 2015.

The World Travel Awards Middle East Gala Ceremony will welcome hundreds of industry leaders to the world-class property on May 5th, as World Travel Awards begins its Grand Tour 2015.

And what better place to begin? Set on a pristine, natural beach, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach blends Arabic design with cool, contemporary style – creating an atmosphere of light, sophisticated luxury.

The 237 ultra-spacious rooms – including 49 suites – offer views of the Arabian Gulf on one side and Burj Khalifa and the downtown skyline on the other.

The perfect place for the elite of the Middle Eastern tourism sector to toast the leaders among them.

The five-star hotel is home to ten restaurants and lounges, one of the city’s most lavish spas, three swimming pools and fun family activities.

With a warm, comfortable attitude and legendary personalised service, Four Seasons is redefining the Dubai luxury hotel experience.

World Travel Awards, too, is no stranger to luxury, celebrating its 22nd year in 2015. For more than two decades the organisation has sought the very best in international hospitality, recognising excellence wherever it can be found.

Today, the World Travel Awards brand is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.

The annual programme is renowned as the most prestigious and comprehensive in the travel and tourism industry.

In 2014, over 650,000 individual votes were cast by travel professionals and high-end tourism consumers.

Announcing the decision World Travel Awards president Graham Cooke said: “The Middle East Gala Ceremony is our most popular regional event of the year, with industry leaders from across the region keen to attend in order to see who has claimed the ultimate industry accolade.

“It is an honour to reveal today that World Travel Awards will be welcoming our winners to the Four Seasons Resort Dubai for the 2015 event; the property is truly one of a kind and has come to define the luxury hospitality sector in Dubai.” 

Cooke added: “We will be revealing more details in the coming weeks as we confirm our stellar line-up of international performers for the Gala Ceremony, so keep an eye on the press and the World Travel Awards website for all the latest information.”

Since opening in late 2014, Four Seasons Resort Dubai has established a leading reputation among luxury connoisseurs.

Light, fresh and airy, the guest rooms and suites at the hotel set the tone for a sophisticated resort experience.

Ultra-spacious and with lofty ceilings, the guest rooms start at 70 square metres including the balcony, positioning them among the largest in Dubai.

Large windows and sliding doors highlight views of the lush palm-treed gardens, the swimming pools, the beach and the sea, or – equally appealing – the impressive Dubai skyline, including Burj Khalifa.
