Six Senses Douro Valley is honoured to be named in the Gallivanter’s Guide 2017 Awards of Excellence as Best European Resort Hotel. This award is voted by readers of Gallivanter’s Guide from 42 countries worldwide.
Gallivanter’s Guide was founded in 1991 with the aim of serving the world’s high-end hotel aficionados. The publication privately published travel advisory reached thousands of discerning travellers every month.
According to Gallivanter’s Guide Co-founder Lyn Middlehurst, “This year’s votes show that brand loyalty remained firmly with high end hotels that have been around as well as to hotels whose general managers commit to more than a year at the helm. Six Senses Douro Valley has set the benchmark for a new breed of high end hospitality: service-oriented and wellness focused, the Six Senses team does not talk about goals but simply achieves them”.
Nicholas Yarnell, general manager of Six Senses Douro Valley said, “We must be doing something right based on the voted from the readers of Gallivanter’s Guide. Six Senses Douro Valley was conceived and is driven by sustainability and wellness, a passion for great intuitive service, and evolution through continuous guest-focused innovation. We strive to be the standard bearer for out-of-the-ordinary travel experiences”.
