Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa, the flagship 5-star Dubai beach resort of Jebel Ali International Hotels, has won a prestigious World Travel Award in the category of ‘World’s Leading Family Resort’ in Doha at the Grand Final of the World Travel Awards.
Previous winner of both Dubai and the Middle East’s Leading Golf Resort, Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa has made significant improvements in recent years including a complete refurbishment of both 5-star beachfront properties and the introduction of new family initiatives and facilities. Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa saw off stiff competition in the category to claim the title of ‘World’s Leading Family Resort’ and was also nominated for two other awards; World’s Leading Golf Resort and World’s Leading Resort.
David Thomson, Regional General Manager of Jebel Ali International Hotels, said “It is a true honour to receive an award that so accurately mirrors our goals and ambitions. As the first all inclusive destination in Dubai, we ensured optimum flexibility for families and then further enhanced this offer with our ‘Kids Go Free’ package. We pride ourselves on being a family resort and are delighted to receive the most celebrated award in the industry.”
Graham E. Cooke, President and Founder, World Travel Awards, said “Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa exemplifies Dubai’s evolution into a world-class destination. Since opening in 1981, this resort has constantly reinvented itself to cater for the discerning family market. Its range of facilities for both adults and children is phenomenal and typifies our mission to push the boundaries of travel excellence. We therefore congratulate it whole-heartedly for winning ‘World’s Leading Family Resort’ 2011.”
Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa are still revelling in the delight of their award win at the UK and Ireland Travel Agent Choice Award’s late last year, where they were awarded ‘World’s Best Resort/Hotel for Families in 2011’. Fredrik Reinisch, General Manager of Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa said “We are over the moon to receive a second highly acclaimed family award in a matter of months and it really plays tribute to the changes that have been made at the resort. We look forward to welcoming more families in 2012 and hope, as ever, to exceed expectations’.
