Yesterday saw the publication of Condé Nast Traveller magazine’s much-anticipated annual Readers’ Travel Awards; a list of accolades for the world’s best destinations, hotels, villas, airlines and more, as chosen by their readers. Singita is delighted to announce that Singita Grumeti, a 350,000 acre concession adjacent to the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and home to five of our lodges and camps, was voted the Best Hotel in the World for Service. This gratifying distinction honours the hard work and dedication of all our staff – field guides, trackers, front of house, chefs, banakelis, sommeliers, housekeepers, groundsmen and more. All of them contribute to creating unforgettable memories for all of our guests.
Singita Grumeti was also listed third in the Readers’ Travel Awards Top 100, a global index of excellence in hospitality, rated according to elements like design, food, location, atmosphere, facilities and service. In addition, the property was awarded second place in the list of best hotels in the Middle East, Africa & the Indian Ocean, while Singita Sabi Sand in South Africa came in at number nine.
Singita could not be more proud of these awards, especially given that they were voted for by previous guests and Condé Nast Traveller readers. We would like to extend our sincere thanks to all members of staff who work tirelessly to make Singita truly a “place of miracles”.
