Jumeirah Vittaveli wins Travel Agents Choice Award
Male, 12 November 2015: Jumeirah Vittaveli has won the ‘Best Hotel/Resort in India and the Indian Ocean’ Travel Agent’s Choice award 2015.
The Travel Agent’s Choice awards are the only travel awards entirely nominated and voted for by the UK travel retailers and carries special significance in the travel industry.
Jumeirah Vittaveli’s General Manager, Mr Graham Kiy, received the award at a function held on board the Sunborn Yacht at the World Travel Market in London. The trophy was presented by Mr Steve Hartridge, Managing Editor of Selling Travel, the travel trade magazine that founded the awards together with the online training provider Travel Uni.
Graham Kiy, General Manager of Jumeirah Vittaveli, said: “We highly appreciate this recognition by the travel trade in the UK. This is a reflection upon the outstanding service provided by our reservations and sales teams when they communicate with agents. This is matched by the excellent service delivered by our colleagues to our valued guests. We offer a welcoming resort that cares equally for our partners, guests and colleagues.”
Jumeirah Vittaveli is popular with guests from the UK, who love the resort’s pristine beaches and activities on offer.
Guests can try stand-up paddle boarding, private yacht cruises, blissful spa treatments or sample the culturally connected experiences on offer such as the lacquerware presentations. Twice a week, guests can witness live demonstrations of this traditional art form and purchase authentic souvenirs.
Jumeirah Vittaveli has also recently introduced the Vittaveli Elite Club, which offers travellers daily bubbly breakfasts and includes complimentary daily replenishment of the in-villa Maxi-Bar.
The Travel Agents Choice award comes after a successful year for Jumeirah Vittaveli, having recently won ‘Maldives’ Leading Spa Resort’ at the World Travel Awards 2015 and ‘Luxury Resort of the Year’ at the Luxury Travel Guide Global Awards 2015.
