Greek hotel unit management group Aqua Vista Hotels was honored with five prestigious awards at the Tourism Awards 2017 ceremony held recently at the Athenaeum InterContinental hotel in Athens.
In its fourth year, the Tourism Awards rewarded the best practices of Greek companies and organizations in all sectors of travel, hospitality and leisure and applauded initiatives that encourage innovation and the quality of Greek tourism.
A first-timer to the event, Aqua Vista Hotels, a company that oversees the concept, construction and overall running of its member-properties, was commended in five of the most significant Tourism Awards categories.
Honors for four hotels and one for the team!
Four hotels from the company’s portfolio clinched awards: the Kassandra Bay Hotel on Skiathos received the Gold award in the ‘Eco-friendly Hotel/Resort’ category, for its environmental policies and its sustainability system; Cloud 9 on Santorini was honoured with the Silver award in the ‘Luxury Villas, Chalets’ category, for its luxurious style; the Art Hotel on Santorini received the Silver award in the Adults Only Hotel/Resort category; and Alta Vista Suites on Santorini, received an award in the ‘Wedding Tourism’ category, for its unique romantic character.
Aqua Vista Hotels’ fifth tourism award was received by its very own team that walked off the stage with the Bronze award in the ‘Hotel Development, Management & Consulting’ category, which recognises the successful model of hospitality concepts developed and applied by the group.
“We are so pleased that all our efforts and our faith in the vision of Aqua Vista Hotels has been rewarded and naturally it is an honour that our industry peers acknowledge exactly that by voting for us,” Sofia Matzourani, Business Development Manager of Aqua Vista Hotels, said.
“These awards give us inspiration to continue while at the same time make us even more conscious of our commitment to create and manage unique hotels. Aqua Vista Hotels will continue to proceed based on its principles of creating efficient hotel units with high-end services that provide unforgettable experiences.”
The distinctions won by Aqua Vista Hotels act as a major recognition of the group’s continued persistence in the creation and operation of luxury hotels that have their own unique identity and offer personalised services. With a wide range of activities and managing hotel units on island destinations with different needs including Santorini, Mykonos, Crete, Skiathos, Naxos and Lesvos and more destinations planned to be added to its roster, the group undertakes the materialisation and management of particularly demanding ventures of international standards.
