Congratulations to our Bar Manager, Venkadesh! He just won the title of “Sake Sommelier of the Year” in the international sake sommelier competition in London.
Regular readers of our blog may remember that last year, Venkadesh came second (read more about it here), so we’re extra delighted that this year, he managed to take the top spot.
Next time you’re at the Bonnington, pop into Healey’s Bar and try one of his sake creations!

If you’re in Dubai this weekend, do join us to congratulate our friends from McGettigan’s JLT on their 5th birthday! Yes, it’s really only been five years that we opened McGettigan’s Pub in our hotel, but what a journey it has been! These days, you can find McGettigan’s in several locations in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ireland, Singapore, New York, and – shortly – also in London.
The next three days, though, are all about the JLT pub, where everything started. McGettigan’s has put together a fabulous lineup of offers and events – check them out here.
During the past weeks, we’ve also received more guest comments via our Golden Book in the hotel lobby. Here are a few, but you can find more on our dedicated Pinterest board here.

Over 500 hotels, but only one clear winner: The Bonnington takes Worldhotels’ top spot for growth in 2014!
The Bonnington has long been part of Worldhotels, the exclusive group of independent hotels that brings together a handpicked portfolio of almost 500 properties in 250 destinations and 65 countries across the world.
At the recently held Annual Worldhotels Conference in Guangzhou, China, our hard work was rewarded and the Bonnington was named as the Worldhotels member with the highest revenue growth generated in 2014.
As an independent, family-owned and operated, hotel in a highly competitive market place like Dubai, taking this award is a fantastic achievement.
Having achieved 39% growth in 2014 and taking top spot amongst 500 hotels around the world is justly something to be proud of and is due to the hard work and dedication of all our associates.
Together with the recently awarded TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice award, the Bonnington demonstrates that combining guest satisfaction and outstanding service with revenue growth can be achieved.
