(drinks media wire) - Pullman Timi Ama Sardegna won the World’s Leading Island Resort 2011 and – for the 2nd year running –
Europe’s Leading Island Resort 2011 awards at the 18th World Travel Awards in Doha (Qatar) on 11 January
This world-class competition has been rewarding and celebrating excellence across all global travel and tourism industry sectors around the planet since 1994. More than 5,000 companies entered the 2011 competition, and 213,000 travel agents and tourism professionals in 164 countries voted for the best.
The Pullman Timi Ama Sardegna vied for victory in the World’s Leading Island Resort category with eight other prominent hotels in Bora Bora, Mauritius, the Maldives and other heavenly spots.
The Pullman Timi Ama Sardegna’s breathtaking surroundings and unrivalled service earned it these awards. It is on the southeast coast of Sardinia, near the village of Villasimius, in an enviable spot between the Mediterranean scrubland, crystal-clear Notteri lake and its endless sand beach. This 5-star hotel is less than an hour from Cagliari airport and nestled in lush green surroundings. The first-class amenities befit the discerning holidaymakers and business travellers it serves, and include a thalassotherapy centre, water sports, three restaurants serving a choice of light dishes, Sardinian specialities and international cuisine, and more.
“We are proud and honoured to win these two awards. They highlight the level of world-class excellence that our teams have achieved in their daily efforts to meet our business and leisure travellers’ wants and needs. Our meeting facilities, technology and original break ideas make our hotel – and every one of our 60 hotels worldwide – perfect for sharing and exchanging, and for organising business events (seminars, incentives and so on). The matchless setting, great amenities (pool, beach and more) and ample choice of things to do also explain why holidaymakers and families enjoy unwinding here so much,” explains Pullman Timi Ama Sardegna Managing Director Patrick Recasens.
Pullman’s exclusive resort destinations worldwide
Bali (Indonesia), Sanya (China), Pattaya (Thailand) and Mazagan (Morocco) are only four of the ten Pullman hotel resorts treating guests to unforgettable experiences and opportunities to enjoy the area’s cultural and natural environment with the people they are travelling with. Pullman resorts are in ideal spots on the beach, in the mountains or by emblematic cities. They are conveniently located near the planet’s main hubs, and provide a wide range of services and activities for customers on cultural, sports or family holidays, or on incentive and business trips.
“The awards that the Pullman Timi Ama Sardegna has earned mean a lot to this brand. They mean that our hotels have taken another big step towards establishing their international reputation as outstanding establishments that combine business and leisure with class. This year, the brand will be providing even more choice for customers: it will be opening a hotel resort in Phuket and on-lining a dedicated website to showcase the Pullman resort universe,” rounds up Pullman Global Marketing Vice-President Xavier Louyot.
