Jumeirah, the fast growing Dubai-based luxury international hospitality management group and a member of Dubai Holding, has been voted Best Leisure Hotel Chain by the UK travel trade in the 2008 Travel Weekly Globe Awards.

We are delighted and proud to have been acknowledged by the UK travel trade community as the top leisure chain in the world said Derek Picot, Regional General Manager, Europe for the Jumeirah Group. We are extremely thankful of the trust and confidence placed upon us by the travel agent community and we look forward to continue providing our guests with a true STAY DIFFERENT experience as we expand throughout the world.

Organised by Travel Weekly, one of the UKs leading travel trade titles, the Travel Weekly Globe Award Winners are selected by travel agents and all entries are counted by an independent company.  Since their inception in 1977, the Travel Weekly Globe Awards have celebrated the travel industrys high flyers, strongest performers and hottest brands.
