Golf resorts, hotels and travel organisations in Dubai have all been honoured at a regional awards ceremony.
Brits looking for a top quality holiday in the Middle East have been urged to book flights to Dubai, after the Emirati city was named the top destination in the region.
Last night (May 2nd) saw the 2011 World Travel Awards Middle East take place at the Armani Hotel Dubai, with the city’s resorts, travel companies and destinations picking up 20 awards in total.
Key winners included Atlantis The Palm, winner of best resort in the region, as well as Burj Al Arab, which won the best hotel award.
Golf fans are also well catered for in Dubai, as the UAE city has both the best course (The Address Montgomerie) and the best golf resort (Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa) in the Middle East.
Graham E Cooke, president and founder of the World Travel Awards, said: “The Middle East was the perfect region to mark the start of our 2011 Grand Tour, setting the bar for the rest of the world to raise the standards of excellence.”
