Sun Aqua Vilu Reef resort to host World Travel Awards Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony

Preparations are underway in the Maldives, as the nation gets ready to host the World Travel Awards Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony. This year’s prestigious event will be hosted by the upscale Sun Aqua Vilu Reef Resort & Spa on Saturday 8th July, 2017.

The luxury hotel will welcome leaders from the region’s travel and hospitality sectors, government officials, and nominees of the prestigious awards. The event will be hosted by two famous national faces: Moosa Waseem and Aminath Lamha Latheef, hosts of the Maldivian Idol TV series.

The event will start with a glitzy cocktail reception, and then followed by the gala ceremony where the region’s best hotels, airlines, tour operators and travel companies will be awarded. During the event, there will also be examples of authentic Maldivian culture on display through traditional Bandiya and Maafathi dances, and there will be live music from Maldivian singer Unoosha.

“It will be our pleasure to welcome guests to Sun Aqua Vilu Reef. With just a two and half weeks to go until the event, we are putting the finishing touches in place and I look forward to greeting all our guests at a wonderful resort in a picturesque tourist hotspot.”

Commented Graham Cooke, the President of the World Travel Awards.

The Sun Aqua Vilu Reef is a five-star resort located in the South Nilandhe Atoll in the Maldives. The upscale property has 103 Luxury Villas, six Suites, 62 Land Villas, and 35 Over Water Villas, that each boast private terraces and beautiful views overlooking the sea, beach or gardens. Guests can enjoy free wireless internet, flat-screen TVs with satellite channels, a private bar, air conditioning, and large bathrooms with rain showers.

Evgenia Boyankova, the Group Director of Business Development, for Sun Siyam Resorts, commented:

“We are getting ready for World Travel Awards Indian Ocean Gala Ceremony with great excitement.”

“Myself and the team look forward to welcoming the participants to our boutique resort, where Maldivian hospitality, culture and luxury is unrivalled.”

The World Travel Awards was established in 1993 to honour, reward and celebrate the best travel industry sectors across the world. The annual award ceremonies have become the most prestigious in the industry, and the regional winners will go on to compete in the Grand Final Gala Ceremony later this year.
