HIGH FIVE FOR QUEENSTOWN
SOFITEL MAKES TRAVEL+LEISURE MAGAZINE ASIA’S TOP FIVE LIST
Queenstown, New Zealand, Tuesday 25th June 2013 – One of the world’s most respected travel magazines, Travel+Leisure Asia, has named Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa in its top five list of hotels in the Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific region.
The hotel scored fourth place out of five hotels nominated in Travel+Leisure (T+Ls) Oceania category, with a score of 90.00 out of 100 in regards to its perceived service with guests.
Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa’s General Manager Vincent Macquet says the hotel’s ambassadors are to thank for the accolade, as it is Sofitel’s unique approach to personal service referred to by the French hoteliers as cousu main.
“To be named in the top five hotels in our region is a wonderful accomplishment,” Mr Macquet said. “Sofitel and its ambassadors (employees) link the world with French elegance across a collection of addresses worldwide, including Queenstown, and we offer our guests a cousu main (tailor made) service enriched with emotion, performance and a passion for excellence.
“The team working at the hotel really are outstanding, evidenced from the high scores we’ve earned and terrific response we’ve received from the magazine’s many readers and our many international guests travelling here from Asia Pacific.”
Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa has received several notable accolades from T+L in the United States and Asia in recent years. In 2011 the hotel beat out thousands of others worldwide to take first place in Travel+Leisure USA’s World’s Best Spa award category, and in 2012 earned a place in T+L’s World’s Best Awards as one of the top ten best cities across Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific.
