The Ascott Limited is a Singapore company that has grown to be the world’s largest international serviced residence owner-operator. It has over 29,000 operating serviced residence units in key cities of the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe and the Middle East, as well as over 17,000 units which are under development, making a total of more than 47,000 units in over 290 properties.
CapitaLand’s wholly owned serviced residence business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), has scooped three top industry accolades at the World Travel Awards Middle East. Beating off fierce regional competition, Ascott was named this year’s ‘Leading Serviced Apartment Brand’ for the Middle East. Individual property honours also went to Somerset West Bay Doha (named Qatar’s ‘Leading Serviced Apartments’), and Ascott Park Place Dubai (which scooped the award for Dubai’s ‘Leading Serviced Apartments’).
The World Travel Awards recognises the cream of the crop in the global travel industry and celebrates excellence in all key sectors of the travel, tourism and hospitality market. Winners are voted by travellers and travel professionals worldwide.
“We are proud to have won in three categories and be acknowledged as the leading name in the Middle East’s serviced residence industry,” commented Vincent Miccolis, Ascott’s Country General Manager for the Middle East.
“I dedicate these awards to our staff members who worked tirelessly to ensure the well-being of our guests and provide unique home-away-from-home experiences. These awards inspire us to do more and work even harder in delivering award-winning hospitality and world-class experiences for our guests.”
Ascott, along with other regional winners from across Europe, North America, Asia and Australasia etc. will now compete in the corresponding categories to decide who will triumph at the World Travel Awards grand finals to be held on 2 December 2016.
In the Middle East, Ascott’s portfolio comprises seven operating properties and nine under development across six countries – the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Turkey.
