The recently opened Hilton Dalaman Resort & Spa, located on Turkey’s beautiful, unspoilt Dalaman coast, has been nominated for the prestigious 17th Annual World Travel Awards in three separate categories: Turkey’s Leading Beach Resort, Turkey’s Leading Hotel and Turkey’s Leading Resort.
According to the Wall Street Journal the World Travel Awards are the “Travel industry’s equivalent to the Oscars”, being the most comprehensive and high-profile awards in the global travel industry. The Awards seek to separate the good from the outstanding, to identify companies that consistently excel and to take customer expectations to unparalleled highs.
General Manager of the Hilton Dalaman Resort & Spa, Geylan Dursunoglu, says: “We are thrilled to have been nominated for three categories in such a key and prestigious industry event such as the World Travel Awards. This will be an excellent means of showcasing the recently-opened ultra-modern, luxurious and welcoming resort, bringing new international standards of excellence to Dalaman – one of the number one destinations for British visitors to Turkey.”
Established in 1993 to acknowledge and celebrate excellence in the world’s travel and tourism industry, thousands of votes are cast by travel professionals from 183,000 travel agencies in over 160 countries across the globe, so that winning a World Travel Award has become one of the highest accolades a travel product can receive. The results of the European arm of the 2010 World Travel Awards will be announced at the Europe Gala Ceremony on 1 October in Turkey at the Rixos Premium in Belek, Antalya.
