Greece’s Carpe Diem Exclusive Boutique Hotel, a member of Aqua Vista Hotels group, was named Europe’s and World’s “Best Honeymoon Hideaway” during the 2017 gala dinner of the World Boutique Hotel Awards held recently in the Merchant Taylor’s Hall in London.
“For me, authenticity and exclusivity are the most important attributes that a hotel can offer its guests, rather than simply promising ‘luxury’, a term which has been so over-used that it has begun to lose its meaning. At Carpe Diem we provide bespoke services and genuine hospitality in an unparalleled destination and are grateful to the selection committee for recognizing that with this award,” Sotiris Kopatsaris, Managing Director and Owner of Carpe Diem, said.
According to Kopatsaris, with its lavish suites, luxury concierge services, fine dining options and elevated position overlooking the spectacular island, Carpe Diem Exclusive Boutique Hotel is preferred as an idyllic haven by honeymooners.
“The honeymoon category is very competitive, so I consider it a special privilege to have received this accolade. It is a testament to what we can achieve with expert partners such as Aqua Vista Hotels and Small Luxury Hotels of the World, with whom we will be celebrating 10 rewarding years of collaboration in 2018,” Kopatsaris said.
Carpe Diem Exclusive Boutique Hotel began its cooperation with Aqua Vista Hotels in 2016.
“We are very happy about the distinctions achieved by Carpe Diem and what makes this moment even more special is that exactly one year ago we announced our new collaboration with the hotel,” Sofia Matzourani, Business Development Manager of Aqua Vista Hotels.
“It is an honor for us to be here to celebrate its great success and be part of such an amazing event,” Matzourani said, adding that the awards are also further acknowledgement of how Greece has so much to offer in the high-end hospitality sector.
The annual ceremony of the World Boutique Hotel Awards is attended by some of the best luxury hotels in the world, with the nominations, evaluation and selection of the winners being carried out by a panel of international travel industry experts, luxury travel journalists and hoteliers.
