Palazzo Versace Dubai is named “Best New Hotel”

Shereen Shabnam


Recently I find myself always heading to Palazzo Versace Dubai for either an event our team has organised or to attend an event with friends and it is such a delightful place to be.


Palazzo Versace Dubai is an “authentic European palace with an Arabic edge” and has been named “Best New Hotel” at the 6th Middle East Hotel Awards 2016 and we can see why as the quality of food served in all the events we went to was fabulous.


The awards ceremony witnessed a 63 per cent increase of submissions on the previous year’s edition, with the 6-month old hotel topping the list. Judges for the ME Hotel Awards stated that the significant rise in the number of entries in 2016 can be attributed to increasing interest from hotels and suppliers based in the GCC and Levant regions.


The 19 independent industry judges assessed each entrant based on research conducted by “mystery shoppers” over a six-month period.


The event welcomed over 400 hoteliers, caterers, suppliers and other industry professionals to what has quickly become a mainstay on the hospitality awards calendar. The Middle East Hotel Awards were established in 2010 to highlight and reward excellence across the vibrant hotel industry in the region.
