The Preferred Ones

The Fullerton Bay Hotel Singapore and Lelewatu Resort Sumba are announced winners of Preferred Hotels & Resorts Annual Awards of Excellence and GIFTTS Pineapple Award Initiatives.

On 22 September 2020, two of the most recognisable hospitality brands in Southeast Asia were noted as some of the best properties in the world through The Preferred Awards of Excellence. The world’s largest independent hotel brand, Preferred Hotels & Resorts annually acknowledges hotels and individual hoteliers represented within the brand’s worldwide portfolio that went above and beyond in their commitment to deliver meaningful experiences and selfless acts of genuine hospitality to their guests and local communities.

During these testing times for the travel and hospitality industry, The Preferred Awards of Excellence is acknowledging those special individuals and brands that excel in championing the Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ brand promise, which is to believe in travel, and shine in their passion for both providing superior service and creating unique, memorable experiences that connect travellers to the authentic spirit of their chosen destination.

Each hotel honouree ranks among the top in their respective regions as part of the bespoke Preferred Hotels & Resorts Integrated Quality Assurance programme – which takes into account the results of a professional on-site inspection and real-time guest feedback. Aside from The Fullerton Bay Hotel and Lelewatu Resort Sumba, other winners on this year’s list include Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans, Hotel Regina Louvre in Paris, Hotel Californian in Santa Barbara, Aranwa Cusco Boutique Hotel in Peru, Galeria Plaza Reforma in Mexico, The Leela Palace New Delhi in India, Amerikalinjen in Norway, and more.
