DOT_4778.The award-winning Hulhule Island Hotel (HIH) has been named an official partner of the Seven Star Global Luxury Awards 2015.

 Online voting is currently underway for the exclusive international tourism and hospitality industry award dubbed ‘The Oscars of Luxury” and closes on June 15, HIH noted in a press release.

 “We are delighted to be associated with Seven Star Global Luxury Awards and wish the nominees all the very best,” said Utkarsh Faujdar, General Manager of Hulhule Island Hotel.

 The awards will be presented to the winners at a gala ceremony at the Trans Resort in Bali, Indonesia on September 19.

 “It is a great honour to be referred to as The Oscars of Luxury,” said Khalil El-Mouelhy, chairman, president and founder of the Seven Star Global Luxury Awards.

 Adeeb was presented the ‘Outstanding Achievement in Tourism’ award in recognition of the Maldives reaching a milestone of 1 million visitors in 2013.

 The Maldives won the best destination award for a second consecutive year after competing with Bahamas, Fiji, Seychelles, Italy and Mexico.

 The Seven Star award bestows upon winners the Signum Virtutis in recognition of extraordinary achievements. The award is widely considered a seal of excellence for prospective guests.
