MACAO, Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Conrad Macao, Cotai Central has once again been recognised for its outstanding suites and amenities, and for its equally outstanding sustainability efforts. The multi-award-winning luxury hotel was named Best Luxury Suite Hotel in the Asian Continent at this year's World Luxury Hotel Awards in Phuket, Thailand Nov. 1, 2013, and was a global-level winner at last year's World Luxury Hotel Awards. Its innovative Bodhi Spa was a triple-winner in the 2013 World Luxury Spa Awards. In addition, Conrad Macao was just named the World's Leading Green Hotel by the prestigious World Travel Awards in a ceremony held in Qatar Nov. 30.
Conrad Macao's 206 suites, soon to be extended to 218 including four new Presidential Suites and an exclusive new Conrad Club on the top floors of the tower, have been a plush 'home away from home' for regional and international stars of film, television, fashion and sport, even royalty, since the hotel's opening last year. High profile guests of the premier suites have included Sophia Loren, Zhang Ziyi, Grammy Award-winning jazz icon George Benson, golf star Ernie Els, and actress Shu Qi, who joined the hotel's first anniversary celebrations.
This latest award brings the hotel's list of accolades to 23 since it opened in April 2012 - a tremendous average of more than one per month. In addition to the World Luxury Hotel Awards and the World Travel Awards, recognition has come from the likes of Forbes, Michelin, the Hurun Report, Hong Kong Tatler, Wine Spectator, TTG, Travel + Leisure, and TripAdvisor, among others.
"Conrad Macao has ranked No. 1 among Macao's luxury hotels all year at TripAdvisor, and is currently the No. 1 hotel overall in Macao according to travellers' reviews," said Mark McWhinnie, Senior Vice President of Operations at Sands Cotai Central (the integrated resort wherein Conrad Macao resides). "We're ecstatic that Conrad Macao continues to be rewarded by the travel industry, and more importantly by travellers themselves, for delivering a true experience of Conrad's signature world of style, service and connection. We're especially proud of the breadth of award categories represented, covering all aspects of our hotel: from meetings and conferences to spa, and from dining and wine selection to eco-sustainable practices. Thanks to an incredibly dedicated group of team members, Conrad Macao has proven itself over its first 20 months to be an all-around world-class luxury hotel of choice for sophisticated travellers."
