Raffles’ old world charm and colonial splendour have once again charmed tastemakers – this time, from China-based luxury travel and lifestyle service, Zanadu, who recently lauded Raffles Singapore with “Best Hotel with a Story” in The Global Travel Experience Award 2015.
The 2015 Global Travel Experience Award was held on 8 September 2015 in Shanghai showcasing the world’s best hotels and resorts, celebrating experience-based travelling from a consumer’s perspective. 18 unique travel awards were presented by celebrities, media and travel industry leaders, including categories such as “Most Decadent Hotel Suite” and “Most Exotic Location”.
The winners of these awards are nominated both by a month-long public vote, and by professional travellers, which include media experts, celebrities, and hotel industry experts.
The only hotel in Singapore that was included in accolades, Raffles Singapore beat out competitors such as the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, Ritz Carlton’s Hotel Arts Barcelona, Six Senses in Con Dao, Vietnam and London’s The Dorchester in the “Best Story” category.
Zanadu is China’s first and leading luxury lifestyle and travel booking site which tailors exclusive vacations to their clientele. The site’s tastemakers curate luxury and boutique hotels around the world, providing in-depth articles for each visited place, thus allowing users access to the best and most luxurious holidays.
