For the second time running, the InterContinental Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort scooped up the prestigious title 'World's Leading Wedding Resort' at this year's Grand Final Ceremony of the World Travel Awards Worldwide Categories held at El Jadida, Morocco on the 12th of December 2015.
Voted for by travel professionals as well as seasoned travellers, the World Travel Awards are seen as the Oscars of the travel industry's accolades. Since its reopening after extensive renovation works in 2011, the InterContinental Samui has been able to accumulate no less than 13 World Travel Awards more notably for weddings and honeymoons, but also as leading luxury and beach resort.
"Being awarded Thailand and Asia's Leading Beach Resort and now the World's Leading Wedding Resort all in one year could not have made me happier", says Stéphane Duchenne, General Manager of the InterContinental Samui. "A wedding is the most challenging event of all because, ideally, every couple only plans to have one and therefore invest a lot of emotions into their special day. There is no room for error and my whole team works very hard on every single wedding celebration to create memories that last a lifetime. This is an award in recognition of every single staff member and their tremendous work."
