Participants from the World Luxury Spa and Restaurant Awards gathered at the magnificent Galgorm Resort & Spa in Northern Ireland for the annual event, recognising and celebrating their success for exceptional service in the luxury wellness and fine dining industries.
The red carpet was rolled down the stairs and out between the wide pillars and high arches of the impressive venue – The Great Hall. Guests were welcomed at the entrance by the sound of Irish Uilleann pipes and a single reel Irish dance performance as they were led into an ‘Enchanted Forest’ reception area with exotic cocktails and canapes on arrival. The theme for the evening was Irish with a mythical feel, guests were immersed in a truly memorable celebration of Irish culture, fine food and ‘craic’.
Over 200 guests from 42 countries across the globe attended this unforgettable occasion filled with opulence, glitz and glamour.
Group General Manager – Karen Golden said “We are delighted to again be acknowledged with the success as finalists and subsequent winners with 3 of our world class Australian wellness properties. It is a testament to the commitment of our teams and our delighted guests who voted for us, as to the experience our properties provide. Wellness, reconnection and emotional hospitality are at the core of everything we do and creating a unique and memorable experience is what drives us to be so passionate about the luxury wellness industry.”
The resort, in conjunction with their spa partners, created a Spa Festival for attendees to enjoy, this included a pop-up Wellness Bar by Aromatherapy Associates and Finishing Bar by Vita Liberata (the world’s first non-toxic and organic tan). Attendees were invited to experience the products, tan before the event and relax with complimentary treatments after their travels, before preparing to attend the evening’s event.
All attending the event were impressed with the entire evening, especially with the representation of each attending country’s flag outside the entrance of the Great Hall. The awards were well received and the evening flowed smoothly from start to finish, culminating with the much anticipated Global awards, followed by the winners of the Global Spa and Restaurant of the Year winners.
