Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villa Resort & Spa has taken out two five star awards at this year’s International Hotel Awards. The awards recognise hotels and hospitality-related companies that are the best of the best in the luxury hotel industry. Entries from more than 50 countries across Asia Pacific, Europe, the Americas, Arabia, Africa and the UK were judged by a prestigious panel, chaired by the esteemed Sir David Michels (a retired Chief Executive of the Hilton Group who is currently President of both the Tourism Alliance and Institute of Hospitality).
Shining amid tough competition, Anantara Rasananda took out awards for being both a Five Star Resort Hotel and a Five Star Spa Hotel in Thailand. The accolades were announced at a gala presentation dinner at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square last Monday, 26 January 2015.
Stuart Shield, President of the International Hotel Awards, says, “The five-star standard has improved dramatically over the last few years and this indicates the levels of determination from the world’s best hotels to deliver the ultimate in comfort and service. Guests who have experienced such quality will only be satisfied by the hotel industry either retaining or even improving on these standards.”
