Twenty nineteen has been an extraordinary year for World Luxury Hotel Awards. The brand has seen steady growth and is now recognized globally as the leading luxury awards company, which in turn is attracting the most prominent hotel brands and privately-owned properties to this renowned company. These hotels are increasingly seeing the benefits of being part of the awards and in particular the Gala Dinner Event, where luxury hotels are recognized for world-class service excellence provided to guests. These awards are presented to luxury hotels on a country, regional, continent and global basis. Winners are selected by public vote, providing true recognition that reflects the hard work and dedication exhibited by the staff of all nominees and winners.
Arctic TreeHouse Hotel is hosting the 2019 World Luxury Hotel Awards event in Rovaniemi, Finnish Lapland, on 12th October 2019. This is the first time the gala event will be held in Northern Europe. “We are truly honoured to have been given the opportunity to host this event,” comments Ilkka Länkinen, the CEO of Arctic TreeHouse Hotel. “We look forward to showcasing the uniqueness and beauty of the nature of Lapland, as well as the heartfelt hospitality of the local people.”
Voting for the 2019 World Luxury Hotel Awards took place during the month of July with over 250 thousand votes received collectively for 750 hotels representing 99 countries worldwide, the collective public across the globe including guests, staff, travel agents and industry peers, all had the chance to place their stamp of approval on their establishment of choice. “One of the most favourable ways to award service excellence is by allowing people to have their say, and hearing from the public is a popular manner in which to make a decision on where you will choose your next luxury holiday or business trip. An award of this stature signifies quality, service delivery and much sought after luxury. All of which have made our participants what they are today, winners in the luxury hospitality field.” says Tanique Echardt, Executive Manager of The World Luxury Awards. Arctic TreeHouse Hotel is located on the Arctic Circle, surrounded by the pristine northern nature and the cleanest air in the world. Its concept has been designed around the will to offer guests an authentic nature experience. The hotel’s suite units modelled after the pinecone cow, stand amongst the trees as one with the natural surroundings. The floor-to-ceiling windows offer a spectacular view of the arctic sky and its stunning phenomena: the northern lights and the midnight sun. “We are pleased to be able to share the value and significance of nature with our guests,” says Länkinen. “As nature has always been a big part of our lives, we also do our best to raise awareness for sustainable development and the preservation of our fragile arctic nature.”
The 2019 World Luxury Hotel Awards will be celebrated in SantaPark, a unique venue located right next to Arctic TreeHouse Hotel. SantaPark is the home cavern of Santa Claus descending 50 meters below the Arctic Circle. The menu has been planned according to the sustainable values of Arctic TreeHouse Hotel; the gala experience will include locally produced culinary delights such as reindeer and pike perch and guests will also have the privilege of enjoying true Lappish entertainment throughout the evening. Tuuletar, an accapella band will perform mystic singing stories which will allow guests to experience diverse elements of the Lappish culture, promising to be an experience of a lifetime.
