The Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah has been awarded the highly coveted AAA Five Diamond Award for both the property and its contemporary Italian restaurant Social by Heinz Beck.
The AAA Five Diamond Award is the highest level of the AAA Diamond Ratings System for restaurants and lodgings administered by the American Academy of Hospitality Services (AAA).
The AAA is renowned worldwide for recognizing excellence in the global travel and luxury services sector. Each year, the Academy bestows its coveted International Star Diamond Award exclusively on five star establishments, celebrating outstanding quality in the hospitality industry worldwide.
In 2014, only 0.4 percent of the 29,000 AAA/CAA approved lodgings and 0.2 percent of 30,000 restaurants received this prestigious designation.
Commenting on the prize, David Wilson, General Manager of the hotel, said: “We are honored to receive these accolades from what is undisputedly one of the industry’s most prestigious emblems of achievement. These awards recognize excellence on a global level and truly reflects the fact that the Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah is deemed a pinnacle of quality.”
