Thanks, Agoda! We’re Golden Circle members!

Agoda Golden Circle Award 2015_1

The year just gone ended with a pleasant surprise when we were given an Agoda Golden Circle Award for outstanding customer feedback and going above and beyond the call of duty in 2015!

Thank you to everybody who left us feedback on agoda.com and to our partners from Agoda. Only very few hotels make it into the Golden Circle and we’re very pleased to have been included. The Golden Circle badge means that we’re consistently receiving very good feedback from Agoda guests and is also a thumbs-up to our reservations, revenue, and sales teams for using Agoda’s online platform effectively.

Whether you’re staying with us via agoda.com or other booking channels, you’re always guaranteed a warm welcome and great service in the heart of new Dubai!

Venkadesh stands tall in 2nd position at the Global Sake Sommelier Competition!

Venkadesh Sake Competition 2nd Place

He’s done it! Congratulations to Venkadesh, our Healey’s Bar & Terrace Manager, for achieving an outstanding 2nd place in the recent Global Sake Sommelier of the Year competition! For more details about the competition, read our previous blog post here.

Venkadesh was one of six semi-finalists, who battled it out at the final, which was held in London on 23rd November 2015.

We’re all very proud that one of our team-members represented us and the UAE at this prestigious annual event and finished in the top two!

We wish Venkadesh all the very best for the future! Who knows, he might just grab the trophy for us at next year’s Sake Sommelier competition!

It’s definitely a great start to the festive season. If you’re looking to celebrate, we’ve got some great offers and events at the Bonnington. Check out the details here.

Bonnington Jumeirah Lakes Towers Honored In the 2014 TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Hotel Awards

We’re very pleased to announce that we have been named as a winner in the 2014 Travelers’ Choice® awards, putting us firmly amongst the top 25% of hotels in the United Arab Emirates and the Middle East.

In the 12th year of the awards, the world’s most outstanding properties were identified in the categories of Top Hotels, Bargain, B&Bs and Inns, Family, Luxury, Romance, and Small Hotels.

We are no stranger to winning Travelers’ Choice® awards having bagged two awards in 2012 already.

Travelers’ Choice award winners were determined based on the reviews and opinions of millions of TripAdvisor travelers around the globe.

Our General Manager, Bruno Guilloux, had this to say about the 2014 award:

“We are very pleased to have received this award. This recognition is the result of hard work and dedication from highly committed colleagues. I am delighted to share this success with all of them. As an independently managed and family-owned hotel, we’re very proud to have made it into these lists and would like to say a big thank you to everybody who reviewed us on TripAdvisor.”
