Dusit Thani Maldives have been awarded the coveted Asia Pacific’s Hotel of the Year award in the recent Budgie$ & Travel Awards. In a glittering function held earlier during the month at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, Dusit Thani Maldives was awarded the recognition ahead of many other budget accommodations from Asia Pacific.
A global voting system was used in which members of the public voted on a total of five finalists and selected the best hotel based on customer service, facilities, location and value added services offered by each of the properties. Dusit Thani Maldives scored highly on all parameters.
The Budgie$ & Travel Awards is a celebration of the exemplary performance of Asia Pacific’s budget accommodations and low cost aviation partners. It is recognition of the amazing accomplishments, enterprising leadership skills and of course the ingenuity that is exhibited by these low cost operators in every aspect of their daily operation.
The awards were held in collaboration with Travel Distribution World Asia. It is a leading platform for thousands of companies working in the travel sector, providing accommodation, aviation solution and providing intermediary services. Additionally, this platform evaluates the best practices followed in the travel sector by the businesses.
Apart from the award ceremonies that sought to identify and appreciate stellar performances within the industry, the Budgie$ & Travel Awards also looks at bringing to this platform industry leaders, thinkers and opinion formers to share their experiences, expertise and the cutting-edge technical developments that are happening right now within the industry.
