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.

Our General M10492591_696178810431363_1610097112860007324_nanager, Bruno Guilloux, had this to say about the achievement:

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.
