Jumeirah Vittaveli in Maldives Named the 2017 Global Hotel of the Year

Jumeirah Vittaveli villa and resort in Maldives is delighted to be named the 2017 Global Hotel of the Year, in the 11th edition of the World Luxury Hotel Awards, held in St. Moritz, Switzerland over the weekend. Voted by over 300,000 travellers to name their favorite luxury hotel over a four-week period, Jumeirah Vittaveli in Maldives stood out.

Renowned for its tropical, paradise setting with suites that open up to the turquoise sea, open-air restaurants, an overwater bar, and coconut oil-based spa treatments, Jumeirah Vittaveli offers “…unmatched diversity, subtle luxury and personalised exploration.”

What’s interesting is that The Jumeirah Vittaveli will be upping the ante “by opening the first ice rink in the Maldives, where the average temperature in December is about 27C.” Guests will have something new to look forward to in addition to the extravagant amenities.
