The award was pre­sented at the grand fi­nale cer­e­mony in An­guilla re­cently, which was at­tended by top ex­ec­u­tives from the travel, tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tors. Founded in 1993, the World Travel Awards aim at recog­nis­ing, ac­knowl­edg­ing and re­ward­ing ex­cel­lence in the travel, tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor world­wide. Salem Al Kubaisi, Chief Cor­po­rate Ser­vices Of­fi­cer at Katara Hos­pi­tal­ity, ac­cepted the award on be­half of the com­pany.

Com­ment­ing on the or­gan­i­sa­tion's lat­est ac­com­plish­ment, His Ex­cel­lency Sheikh Nawaf Bin Jas­sim Bin Jabour Al Thani, Chair­man of Katara Hos­pi­tal­ity, said, “This ac­co­lade un­der­lines the in­vest­ment and devel­op­ment mile­stones we have achieved on our jour­ney to be­com­ing one of the top hos­pi­tal­ity or­gan­i­sa­tions in the world. Iden­ti­fy­ing at­trac­tive in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, in­creas­ing rev­enue streams and pre­sent­ing ex­cep­tional ser­vice to our guests has pro­pelled Katara Hos­pi­tal­ity into the global spot­light.”

“We are proud to once again win this award at such an im­por­tant in­ter­na­tional plat­form and be recog­nised as an or­gan­i­sa­tion that is push­ing the bound­aries of in­dus­try ex­cel­lence,” added Ha­mad Ab­dulla Al-Mulla, CEO and Board Mem­ber of Katara Hos­pi­tal­ity. Katara Hos­pi­tal­ity has re­cently re­opened the Sher­a­ton Doha Re­sort and Con­ven­tion Ho­tel, fol­low­ing an ex­ten­sive ren­o­va­tion that up­graded the prop­erty's fa­cil­i­ties. Bring­ing Doha's most iconic ho­tel to its for­mer glory, the re­fur­bish­ment per­fectly re­flects the syn­ergy be­tween the strik­ing 1970s ar­chi­tec­ture of one of Qatar's most recog­nised land­marks and all the func­tion­al­ity ex­pected of a lead­ing 21st cen­tury luxury ho­tel.

Ear­lier this month, the Excelsior Ho­tel Gal­lia, a Luxury Col­lec­tion Ho­tel, Mi­lan in one of Katara Hos­pi­tal­ity's five-star prop­er­ties in Italy – wel­comed its first guests dur­ing its soft re­open­ing. Fol­low­ing the com­ple­tion of the full ren­o­va­tion by renowned Mi­lanese ar­chi­tect Marco Piva, this iconic project will of­fi­cially re­open in Fe­bru­ary 2015, fol­low­ing four years of re­de­vel­op­ment work. With 30 ho­tels al­ready in op­er­a­tion or un­der devel­op­ment, Katara Hos­pi­tal­ity has topped its long-es­tab­lished goal of 30 prop­er­ties by 2016 two years ahead of sched­ule.
