Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels (SWBH), the luxury, five-star hotel collection owned and managed by Al Rayyan Hospitality, received five awards at the prestigious World Luxury Hotels Awards (WLHA), held in South Africa for the first time last December.
SWBH’s triumphant night began with winning the Best Hotel Management Company award in the global section, followed by Al Jasra winning the Luxury Boutique Hotel Award and Arumaila the Luxury Rooftop View Hotel Award in the continental section. Finally Al Najada grabbed the Luxury Romantic Hotel Award and Al Bidda the Luxury New Hotel Award.
Launched in 2006, the World Luxury Hotel Awards are one of the world’s most renowned hospitality awards events in which all major hospitality brands compete annually. The lure of winning one of the global Awards is compelling, as they are considered to be the most prized accolades for rating luxury and service standards. More than 1000 hotels from 87 countries signed up for the 2014 Awards.
Taleb Al Henzab, General Manager at Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels, said: “Our win reflects SWBH’s superior standards in the luxury boutique hotel sector, particularly with respect to the hotels’ contemporary design and unmatched style. Each of the Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels has their own unique identity with an ambience steeped in history and originality. Winning five of the most prestigious international awards clearly shows SWBH’s outstanding position in the hospitality industry.”
“Every hotel in the collection is individually built to reflect the historical meaning of its name. Besides we continuously seek to enhance our offerings with exceptional services and an excellent guest experience which enables our visitors to enjoy every single moment of their stay in Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels” added Al Henzab.
Renowned for being a haven for families and expat away from the city bustle to enjoy privacy, relaxation, and recreational activities, each hotel in the collection stands out with distinctive characteristics that combine the glory of the past with the luxury of today by mixing modern day elegance with age-old hospitality and the spirit of Qatari originality.
