Ayana Resort and Spa Bali has been named Asia’s Best Resort in the 2011 Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards, as voted by over 28,000 travellers.

With an overall score of 95.7, Ayana topped the list of the 20 Best Resorts in Asia and ranked 42 of the 100 Best Resorts in the World, in the magazine’s annual Readers’ Survey. The survey collated 8 million votes from discerning travellers across all categories to make it the travel industry’s most extensive and prestigious compendium of the world’s best destinations and places to stay.

Ayana General Manager Charles de Foucault thanked travellers for their continuing support since the resort rebranded in April 2009, when it was brought under the management of West Paces Hotel Group led by Horst Schulze.

“This award reaffirms the vision and excellence of our owner and the leadership of West Paces Hotel Group, but most of all it reflects our guests’ recognition of the passion, care and dedication of our 900+ staff, ” said de Foucault. “While Ayana’s facilities and amenities are world-class, it is really our staff who have won this award.

“They do not think of awards when they serve our guests, but they are the living example of Maya Angelou’s famous quote, ‘People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’

“The awards are a byproduct of their natural care and dedication to provide a memorable stay for every guest, and so I congratulate all of our staff for this well-deserved recognition; they are Asia’s Best.”
