The Granite Luxury Hotel was honoured at a gala ceremony in Dubai, United Arab Emirates recently.

The hotel was recognised at the International Travel Awards ceremony in the city.

They received for the “Best Hotel Design” award at the prestigious ceremony.

Built and managed by M Summit Group, The Granite Luxury Hotel submitted an entry for the international contest which saw thousands of hotels worldwide vying for honours.

On hand to receive the award in Dubai were group managing director Dato Albert Moh, general manager Moh Wei Ren and corporate communications manager Ms Ng Su-Ann.

“This recognition is truly humbling. We are so honoured to be recognised by an international body for our commitment to creating exceptional and innovative hotel spaces.

“We dedicate this win to Penang folk, the state government, loyal patrons and our dedicated team who have supported us in this journey. Without all of you, we would not be bringing this trophy back to Penang,” said Moh.

He also added that the award is a true reflection of the hotel’s relentless efforts to redefine the hospitality landscape.

During the cocktail session in the gala event, they also promoted Penang’s attractions and street food to the other international award winners.

Meanwhile, Ng said the competition was quite challenging because a big part of it was based on a public voting process.

“Every vote counts and we are thankful to those who had taken the trouble to show their support by voting for us.” added Ng.

Out of 4,000 nominations from 70 countries, only 200 or 5% were announced as winners at the gala night.

Last year, The Granite bagged two awards for Best Luxury Real Estate Developer and Best Luxury Commercial Development from the Luxury Lifestyle Awards in New York.

It also won the Best Leisure Development and Best New Hotel Design & Architecture entries at the Asia Pacific Property Awards ceremony in London.

Two of its facilities have entered into the Malaysia Book of Records for being the Highest Acrylic Bottom Swimming Pool and Tallest Automated Hotel Car Park.
