The incredible AR Diamante Beach Spa Hotel and Convention Centre, based in the sunny seaside town of Calpe, was awarded 'Luxury Family Hotel' status at the 2016 Luxury Hotel Awards, held on the 29 of October in Doha, the Qatari capital.

The Luxury Hotel Awards ceremony recognises the finest luxury hotels and spas around the world –  AR Diamante Beach Spa Hotel and Convention Centre proudly earning their stripes in the Luxury Family Hotel category. They were also nominated in two other categories: 'Luxury Spa Hotel' and 'Best General Manager', at the 10th edition of these prestigious awards.

The ceremony, which took place at the magnificent St.Regis Doha, was attended by the CEO of AR Hotels & Resorts, Giorgio Ascolese, and Vice President of Human Resources of the chain, Alessandra Ascolese, on behalf of AR Diamante Beach.
The award for best Luxury Family Hotel recognises the uniqueness of the establishment’s facilities which are specifically designed for families, and the excellence of our services, as well as our team's commitment and continuous efforts to improve daily. These features, combined with a privileged location, have enabled AR Diamante Beach to achieve international recognition and uphold their outstanding reputation.
After collecting the statuette, Giorgio Ascolese highlighted the crucial role played by all the employees of the big chain he heads. They enable "...customers to live a truly luxurious experience", he noted. And, it's the guests who are responsible for selecting the winners of the Luxury Hotel Awards by voting for their favourite hotels in each category. This keeps the AR Hotels team motivated and ensures that they constantly strive to do and give of their best.  
What’s more, is that this is not the first time AR Diamante Beach has had the honour of accepting a prestigious award at this particular event – last year it claimed the award for best website.
