Re-opening on October 1, following a major refurbishment, the Al Bustan Palace has been named by readers of the authoritative Conde Nast Travel magazine in the top 20 ‘best of the best” hotels in its annual Top 100 table.
It is the latest in a long line of prestigious awards gained by the Al Bustan Palace, which earlier this year was named the “Middle East’s Leading Hotel”, based on a travel agents’ internet poll conducted by the World Travel Awards.
“We know people expect world class from the Al Bustan Palace and this confirms we are providing it,” says Issa al Hajri, general manager of the Al Bustan Palace Inter-Continental Hotel and regional vice-president, operations, Six Continents Hotels.
“Considering that people judged the hotel prior to the refurbishment, its visitors will certainly be overwhelmed by what we will have to offer from October 1 both in terms of décor and design and the greater levels of service from our staff.”
The refurbishment has created new benchmarks in aesthetics, accommodation, service and leisure activities in the Gulf’s competitive market.
The hotel’s accommodation instills a sense of the contemporary while remaining true to the timelessness and quality of workmanship evident in classical and art deco era designs.
From the grand lobby to its catering, the refurbished Al Bustan Palace will exude quality, comfort and elegance with a modernity that does not intrude on the integrity of its designs and décor which captures the historical and cultural characteristics of its idyllic location.
Recreation facilities will be of the highest standard expected of a hotel of its standing, with a luxury spa opening next March.
Business guests will have access to a new and larger business centre designed to make the transition from home to the Al Bustan Palace more seamless. There is 24-hour computer assistance for improved technological connectivity and improved business facilitation attractions such as multi-functional meeting and conference rooms to accommodate from one-on-one discussions to hundreds of delegates.
