Snapshot from the Gala Ceremony. The decoration was based on the olive trees giving a Greek ambiance. Divani Collection owns and operates seven hotels in Greece (Athens, Meteora, Larissa and Corfu). One of the oldest hotel companies in Greece (more than 53 years), Divani Collection is a leader in the Greek hotel industry through innovation, consistency, exceeding customer expectations and superb service. Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso is a proud member of the Leading Hotels of the World, and offers an impressive variety of services and facilities in a superb location.




Speaking ahead of the Gala Ceremony, World Travel Awards President Graham Cooke said: “Greece has shown remarkable resilience over the past five years, recovering swiftly from the economy turmoil which swept the country to reclaim its rightful place at the forefront of European tourism. World Travel Awards is proud to be here at Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso to show our support for the hospitality sector and to recognise those organisations which have seized the opportunity in recent years to emerge stronger than ever.

 

 
Divani Collection Hotels Marketing Director Niki Fotiou said “Hosting the World Travel Awards has been an honour for Divani Collection. Through our relationship with the organisation we have been able to showcase our hotel to an elite European audience, while also presenting the best of Greek hospitality. It is also a real pleasure and surprise to have been recognised here at Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso as Europe’s Leading Spa Hotel. Thank you to everybody who voted for us and see you in Morocco for the Grand Final!
