Each year a new luxury property is selected to host the gala
awards ceremony, which will take place on the 14th July. This
it is the first time the awards will have been held in the UK
or Ireland, having previously been hosted in Qatar, Vietnam,
South Africa and Thailand.
Joanna Evans, Executive Manager for the World Luxury Spa
Awards, says: “We were blown away by the genuine hospitality of
the Galgorm staff, the sheer beauty of the grounds and
surrounding nature, the incredible spa and thermal village and
the range of dining and entertainment options.”
Galgorm Resort and Spa’s General Manager, Colin Johnston, says:
“We are extremely excited about having the opportunity to
showcase on the global stage the amazing luxury spas and
restaurants we have both here on the Ireland and throughout the
UK. The awards themselves offer a fantastic international
networking opportunity and we really look forward to welcoming
the best in our industry from throughout the world to enjoy
some of our renowned Irish hospitality this summer”.
Galgorm is urging all UK and Irish spas and restaurants to
enter. Winners are selected by public vote.
The resort is also celebrating scooping Global Spa of the Year
2017 award at the World Luxury Hotel Awards held in December
2017 in St. Moritz in Switzerland. These awards are presented
to luxury properties on a country, regional, continent and
global basis, so for Galgorm to scoop the accolade really puts
the Resort on the international map.
