Fairmont Singapore Voted Amongst Southeast Asia's Top 20 Hotels by Conde Nast Traveler
Singapore Thursday, October 18, 2012
Condé Nast Traveler magazine has released its annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey, placing Fairmont Singapore at 16th position in the category of Top 20 Hotels in Southeast Asia. In its 25th year of honouring excellence in hospitality, the poll ranks hotels, resorts, cities and more on a variety of metrics, and publishes the crème de la crème of travel in its November 2012 issue. The Readers’ Choice Awards rate the cities, islands, and hotels magazine readers visited in the past year, and the airlines and cruise ships they traveled with.
“This recognition is an affirmation of Fairmont Singapore’s commitment to turn moments into memories for all our guests with every opportunity. We would not have achieved this without the dedication of our colleagues who go out of their way to provide personalized attention, and warm and engaging service to our guests, leaving them with indelible and authentically local experiences,” says Mr Aiden McAuley, Managing Director of Fairmont Singapore.
With a record 46,476 Condé Nast Traveler readers casting ballots, earning high praise from travelers were an additional 30 Fairmont properties including two new additions: Boston’s premier waterfront hotel Fairmont Battery Wharf, and Mexico’s perennial west coast favorite The Fairmont Acapulco Princess. Fairmont Heritage Place, Franz Klammer Lodge in Telluride scored an impressive showing as it was voted to the coveted Top 100 Hotels & Resorts in the World list. Contemporary properties such as Mexico’s Fairmont Mayakoba and Vancouver’s Fairmont Pacific Rim were honored alongside grande dame hotels such as The Fairmont San Francisco and The Savoy, A Fairmont Managed Hotel. The luxury hotel brand prevailed in Canada, with seven of the country’s top hotels and seven of the top resorts, while in the United States 11 hotels and resorts received the prestigious honor. In Kenya, Fairmont’s legendary safari retreat, Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club was honored among the top resorts in Africa.
