Guangzhou’s Garden Hotel in China along with The Furama Resort, Danang in Vietnam and Taiwan’s Ambassador Hsinchu Hotel scooped top honors in the first annual Worldhotels awards.

The new honors were announced in Hong Kong at the annual conference of the newly re-branded Worldhotels, a global sales, marketing and distribution consortia for independent hotels and regional hotel groups, providing services to nearly 500 member properties in 70 countries worldwide.

Worldhotels members honored Guangzhou’s Garden Hotel with this year’s New Member award. The five-star business hotel in the commercial and financial hub of Guangzhou is a giant complex of twin Y-shaped towers incorporating 800 offices and serviced apartments along with the hotel’s 1,000 luxurious rooms and suites. Its lobby is one of the largest in Asia, adorned with unique Chinese works of art and treasures.

Danang’s Furama Resort captured the Members Choice award, ahead of five European nominees. On China Beach, Vietnam’s longest and most stunning stretch of powdery white sand, the Furama Resort is a beachside resort in Central Vietnam and a great base for exploring three UNESCO-listed World Heritage sitesHoi An, My Son and Hue.

Taiwan’s Ambassador Hotel Hsinchu took the honors in the Asia-Pacific for the Worldhotels Global Award for the highest room-rate turnover. The Ambassador is in the heart of Hsinchu City’s shopping and commercial center, within minutes of the Hsinchu Train Station and the Hsinchu Science-Based Industrial Park.

In the Worldhotels Events Awards, relating to the Meetings, Incentive, Conference and Events (MICE) business and based on response time, quality of offers and customer feedback, the Asia winner was The Caravelle Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City’s premier five-star.

Roland Jegge, vice president Asia Pacific for Worldhotels, said: “Our Asia hotel members impressed in these inaugural awards as demonstrated by their share of the honors. They are setting quality benchmarks for the rest of the world to follow and we are expecting to further expand our Asian portfolio, which currently numbers 75 hotels and resorts.”
