Four properties at Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao ranked in ‘Top 5 Best Hotels’ in Macau in 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards by DestinAsian

The Venetian Macao; Sheraton Grand Macao; Four Seasons Hotel Macao; and Conrad Macao are all recognized

(Macao, Feb. 29, 2016) – DestinAsian, a leading travel and lifestyle magazine, announced the winners of its 2016 Readers’ Choice Awards in Bangkok recently. The Venetian Macao was ranked first in the “Best Hotels in Macau” category, followed by Sheraton Grand Macao (3rd), Four Seasons Hotel Macao (4th) and Conrad Macao, Cotai Central (5th). The results reflect the best of the luxury travel industry and the appreciation readers share for hospitality they can depend on.

“We are pleased to be honored with awards of this nature because it comes straight from our customers,” said Mark McWhinnie, senior vice president of resort operations and development, Sands China Ltd. “Our dedicated team work incredibly hard every day to make sure that every customer has the best experience while they are with us. We are always grateful that they choose us when they visit Macao. It is particularly satisfying to have four hotels in the top five of the Best Hotels in Macau.”

Reader polls of Readers’ Choice Awards are particularly interesting and for a property to win one is a testament to the customer-centered experience that a hotel offers. Conducted between August and October 2015, the voting process involves asking travellers from around the world to choose a winner in each of 35 different categories including hotels and resorts, serviced residences, spas, airlines, airports, and destinations. This year saw the addition of the Index listing the top five winners in each category to applaud the runners-up.

The results of the poll are featured in the February/March issue of DestinAsian magazine.
