Preferred Hotels & Resorts has announced Palazzo Versace Dubai as the Best New Hotel Opening 2016 winner. This newly-launched award follows the first annual Preferred Awards of Excellence presented during the closing ceremony of the 2016 Preferred Global Conference recently held in Dubai.

Raza Jafar, Chairman of Palazzo Versace Dubai, said, “The Global Excellence Award for Best New Hotel Opening 2016 is an acknowledgment of our team’s hard work and passion. This award would not be possible without their contribution, and it is a testament to their dedication in providing our guests with an unforgettable experience.”

The award is a testament to the luxurious hotel’s iconic Versace lifestyle, known for high-quality service, and one-of-a-kind hospitality. “To be recognised by Preferred Hotels & Resorts in this way is a result of all of the effort that has been made to create an experience that is unique and special in Dubai’s 5-star luxury hotel segment. This honour is an opportunity to show gratitude for the commitment that has been put in by the developers, designers, managers and team members, to offer a memorable, world-class experience for all our guests,” added Jafar.

To qualify for this innovative award, hotels are required to rank among the top in their region as part of the bespoke Preferred Hotels & Resorts Integrated Quality Assurance Program, which factors the results of a professional on-site inspection and real-time guest feedback from the world’s top consumer review sites, and actively engages in their partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts. The winner must then exceed all expectations for a newly-established hotel.
