Dubai Scoops 14 Awards at 'Travel Oscars'

The rise of Dubai as one of the world's top holiday destinations was confirmed this week after the Emirate scooped 14 awards at the prestigious World Travel Awards, held in India.

Dubai's iconic Burj al Arab hotel won three awards, being named the World's Leading Hotel as well as the World's Leading All Suite Hotel and Luxury All Suite Hotel. The region's hotels were honoured in many categories over the course of the awards, with the title of World's Leading Business Hotel & Apartments gong to Grosvenor House Dubai and the Oasis Beach Tower being named the World's Leading Serviced Apartment Hotel.

Dubai's super-luxury hotels also attracted the attention of the awards, with the award for hotel penthouses going to the Kampinski Hotel & Residences Palm Jumeirah. The Armani Hotel in Dubai was also named the World's Leading Landmark Hotel in the awards. Travellers looking for a pampered holiday could do worse than booking into Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort and Spa, named the Leading Beach Resort, or perhaps opt for the Jumeirah Zabeel Sarav - awarded the title of World's Leading Spa and Wellness Resort.

Dubai also performed well as a sporting destination, with the Meydan resort winning the World's Leading Sports Resort title, and the Emirate winning the overall World's Leading Sports Tourism Destination award.

Fans of luxury cruises should also consider Dubai as a stop-off on their chosen cruise routes, after it was named the World's Leading Cruise Port in the awards.

The World Travel Awards are held every year and are designed to encourage better customer service and continually improving standards in the global travel industry.
