Kurumba Maldives has taken two top titles at World Travel Awards Africa & Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony.
The property was recognised as Maldives’ Leading Resort and Indian Ocean’s Leading MICE Hotel.
The first award highlights Kurumba as Maldives’ Leading Resort, which is presented to the best 4.5 to high end five-star resorts.
Kurumba Maldives has been revitalising itself with a large investment to enhance the guest experience progressively over the past six years.
Combined with these actions, the resort was rebranded under the principle of “Maldives in Full Colour”, which has brought a highly differentiated guest experience with the goal to offer more for its guests than resorts further afield.
The second award, as Indian Ocean’s leading MICE hotel is presented due to the resort being able to successfully host corporate retreats, groups, incentives, meetings and events on its grounds.
The prestigious World Travel Awards have been recognising organisations delivering outstanding customer experiences in travel and tourism for more than 20 years.
They have become a key global institution of the industry, stimulating competition and innovation among operators, as well as providing a helpful testimonial for quality to travellers worldwide.
Judith Rosa, sales and marketing manager of Kurumba Maldives commented: “We are thrilled to receive these prestigious symbols of recognition.
“A key part of these awards is a voting poll and we would like to thank all our loyal guests and key partners for their continuous support.
“Secondly, as a resort we are always looking to raise our standards and create a unique and thoughtful journey for our guests on a beautiful island setting.
“We are truly grateful for the positive recognition from our guests.”
