PHUKET MARRIOTT RESORT and Spa, Nai Yang Beach has been named as the “Best International Wedding Venue Hotel” in the world at the International Hotel Awards 2017.
The seafront resort, which is nestled directly on the pristine sands of Nai Yang Beach on Phuket’s northwest coast, received this prestigious award in a gala ceremony held at the Savoy Hotel in London.
The International Hotel Awards is the only organization in the world to provide five-star accolades to hotels at an international level. The top regional hotels from Asia Pacific, Arabia & Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and UK are judged in 17 categories, and these winners are then entered into the global awards, which ultimately determine the world’s finest resorts and hotels.
This caps a successful year for the Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach, which opened its doors in summer 2016. The resort was named as “Thailand’s Best Wedding Venue” and “Asia’s Best Wedding Venue” at the Asia Property Awards 2017, which allowed it to compete for the global title in the grand final event.
“We are absolutely delighted to have been named as “Best International Wedding Venue Hotel,” said David Ippersiel, general manager, Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach. “The International Hotel Awards sets the standard for excellence within our industry, so to receive this accolade is truly exciting.
“When we launched the resort last year we knew that we had a truly unique proposition for the wedding and honeymoon market. With our secluded sandy beach, sublime sunsets and a team of professional event planners, Phuket Marriott Resort and Spa, Nai Yang Beach is the ultimate destination for tropical weddings.
“I would like to thank the International Hotel Awards for recognizing these qualities. We look forward to welcoming even more couples to our resort in future as we continue to create magical memories on the pure shores of Nai Yang Beach,” he said.
