This year once again, Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz is honored with a beautiful number of achievements recognized worldwide in the hotel industry. Kicking off the year with a great start we had the privilege of being awarded with the Travelife Gold Award - Sustainability in Tourism. Following this was the 2011 World Travel Awards’ with the achievement of Malta's Leading Spa Resort and Mediterranean's Leading Spa, and topping it off with the TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence.
The World Travel Awards 2011, hailed as the ‘Oscars of the Travel Industry’ by the Wall Street Journal, once again rewarded the five-star Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz Gozo for its consistently high standard of services. Increasingly, the awards are known as raising the bar for ultimate customer service and overall business performance. More than 500 organisations across Europe, spanning more than 125 categories, entered the competition for the most influential accolade in travel.
For the fifth consecutive year the luxury countryside & spa resort was voted as Malta's Leading Spa Resort. However, the title of Mediterranean's Leading Spa Resort which saw the Kempinski hold its ground against - and beat – a considerable number of top hotels and destinations within the Mediterranean carries even more significance. This was achieved with hard work and dedication by all the staff members. After last year’s investment in refurbishment and expansion of the spa area, it was one of our goals to re-confirm both awards again. This year we had the honor of re branding the spa to Kempinski The Spa which is designed exclusively for Kempinski Hotels. Its spas are imbued with the same impeccable service, exquisite detail, and easy charm for which Europe’s oldest luxury hotel group is famed. Every detail has been considered to create a haven of tranquil serenity where guests leave their cares behind to focus on wellbeing.
Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz also has been awarded with the TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for the year 2011. The Certificate of Excellence is awarded to qualifying accommodations, attractions and restaurants listed on TripAdvisor that maintain a high overall user rating and a high volume of recent and quality reviews.
“This award is very important for us as it comes directly from our guests. We are really proud knowing that they have recognized all our efforts to meet their expectations and make their stay an unforgettable experience. Considering the fact that the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz is still a young hotel, it already can boast a nice number of recognitions. This year we were awarded with the prestigious Travelife Gold Award - Sustainability in Tourism, a certification which is an internationally recognized award scheme for hotels and other tourism related business which have attained high standards of environmental management. We are proud to announce that again we re-claimed the awards for Malta's Leading Spa Resort and Mediterranean's Leading Spa Resort which was the culmination of the numerous titles achieved so far. These recognitions help to promote more Gozo as a destination” says Noel Attard, General Manager of the Kempinski Hotel San Lawrenz.
