Six Senses Resorts & Spas’ properties were honoured with five top awards at the World Travel Awards (WTA) Asia, Australasia & Indian Ocean Ceremony 2012. The prestigious ceremony was held in Singapore on Thursday 18th October 2012 as a culmination for the search for the world’s leading travel brands.
Winning in two categories, Six Senses Hua Hin in Thailand, reinforced it premier position in the luxury Hua Hin sector as Asia’s Leading Villa Resort 2012 and Thailand’s Leading Villa Resort 2012.
Six Senses Samui in Thailand received the award for Asia’s Leading Honeymoon Resort 2012. This spectacular villa resort is set on a 20-acre
promontory which offers uninterrupted panoramas to the Gulf of Thailand.
Vietnam’s much lauded Evason Ana Mandara at Nha trang, received the accolade of Vietnam’s Leading Resort 2012. This award is especially appreciated as Evason Ana Mandara is celebrating its 15th anniversary, and was Vietnam’s first beach resort to be opened as the country embraced tourism.

A packed delegation of VIPs, senior tourism figures and international media travelled from 42 nations to attend the Singapore event, which was held in conjunction with TravelRave 2012, Asia’s most influential travel trade festival.
The WTA awards programme, hailed as the ‘Oscars of the travel industry’ by the global media, highlights and rewards those travel brands that have made the greatest contribution to the industry over the past year.
Graham E. Cooke, President & Founder, WTA, underlined the depth and quality of the travel and tourism sector across the three regions.
He says: “Our winners are drawn from the breadth of Asia, Australasia and the Indian Ocean, reflecting the strength and depth of the travel and tourism sector in the regions. I am sure these organisations will fare strongly in our Grand Final,
which takes place on 12 December 2012.”

legs go head-to-head at WTA’s Grand Final.
