Great news for Adare Manor – the recently rejuvenated hotel has won Hotel of the Year 2018 at the renowned Global Virtuoso Best of the Best Awards. The awards ceremony, which took place in Las Vegas on Thursday, marked the 12th annual awards, recognising Virtuoso Hotels and Resorts Preferred Partners from across the world.

Adare Manor CEO Colm Hannon spoke about the delight and honour the team behind the hotel have experienced on winning the prestigious award.

“I would like to say a very special thank you to every individual member of our team at Adare Manor, across all departments at the resort. We could not have achieved this extremely special award without the passion and absolute commitment to perfection that each person on our team demonstrates in the way that they welcome and take care of our guests every day,” he said. “We have received huge support both locally and internationally, and we would like to thank all of our guests who have come to Adare Manor since we re-opened. We would also like to thank the travel professionals in the USA and all around the world, who have recommended Adare Manor to their clients. Our commitment is to ensure that each guest enjoys every minute they spend at Adare Manor.

“This award gives us great encouragement in the product and quality of guest service that we have created and re-enforces our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement in reaching our vision of ‘Beyond Everything’.”

Adare Manor reopened last November following an extensive 21-month restoration, refurbishment and expansion programme, extending the number of bedrooms to 104 and adding a new ballroom with a capacity for 350 guests.

“We are delighted to receive this worldwide recognition, as it is testament to the wonderful resort we have here today and its special surroundings, which were meticulously restored and enhanced with newly designed features, following significant investment from its owners,” Hannon added. “On behalf of the team at Adare Manor, we would also like to acknowledge and sincerely thank all of the designers and contractors, who worked with us and helped us create this beautiful resort.”
