5 June 2017 The 5-star hotel nets two titles at separate ceremonies. Located in the heart of Bandar Utama, next to the 1 Utama Shopping Centre, One World Hotel has proven time and again to be top of the list when it comes to MICE hotel venues. On 26 May, at the Asia Pacific International Hotel Awards 2017-2018, the hotel won the ‘Best Convention Hotel Malaysia’ award. A little over a week later on 4 June, the hotel bagged the ‘Asia’s Leading Meeting & Conference Hotel’ award at the 24th World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony 2017. It’s not the first time One World Hotel received such awards as the hotel has taken ownership of several similar titles in recent award ceremonies in the travel and hospitality industry.
“I am humbled and grateful to receive both accolades back-to-back within the span of one week and it is indeed a great honour to be the ‘Asia’s Leading Meeting & Conference Hotel’ title-holder for the fourth time. These immense achievements would not have been remotely possible without the hard work and commitment of my teams. These awards will also continue to inspire us to strive for nothing less than perfection!” says Tan Sri Teo Chiang Hong, Owner & Director of One World Hotel. Hosted by the Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai, the event was attended by 250 hospitality leaders from across the globe. With the esteemed award in hand, One World Hotel has sealed a spot in the Grand Finale scheduled to take place in Vietnam on 10 December 2017. As icing on the cake, apart from winning the ‘Best Convention Hotel Malaysia’ award at the International Hotel Awards gala ceremony which took place at The Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park, One World Hotel was also granted an International Five Star Standard recognition in the same evening.
