These rankings are the result of a Readers’ Poll conducted by the magazine. Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards, are amongst the most prestigious in the travel industry as it is the readers who define excellence in hospitality and travel. Readers rate their experiences and evaluate hotels across the world on the following characteristics – rooms and facilities, location, service, restaurants, food and value.
Mr. P.R.S. Oberoi, Executive Chairman, The Oberoi Group said, “We are honoured that we have been able to play a small role in ‘Make in India’ by being the best hotel brand in the world and also having the best hotel in the world. The Brand ‘Oberoi Hotels & Resorts’ has received this recognition from among the 6.5 million readers of Travel + Leisure magazine. I dedicate this award to our guests and to all employees of The Oberoi Group. Our people are our biggest asset – they have worked passionately to ensure our guests receive warm, personalised and caring service.”
Mr. Nathan Lump, Editor at Travel + Leisure said, “It’s a pretty tough thing to be named both the top hotel brand and have the top-ranked hotel in the same year, but Oberoi Hotels & Resorts have made it to the top spots. Thanks not only to properties of exceptional quality in picture-perfect locations, but also due to service standard that Travel + Leisure readers say go above and beyond.”
