Hailed as “the Oscars of the travel industry,” the World Travel Awards are held once a year and recognize, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry on a global scale.
The Westin Athens, Astir Palace Beach Resort saw a double win at this year’s WTA ceremony and won the titles of Greece’s Leading Conference Hotel and Greece’s Leading Family Resort.
The Presidential Suite of Arion Resort & Spa, Astir Palace, was recognised by the awards platform, being named Greece’s Leading Hotel Suite for the second year in a row.
The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the enormous achievements in all sectors of the global travel industry.
