CapitaLand’s wholly-owned serviced residence business unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), was named “Leading Serviced Apartment Brand” in Asia, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Vietnam at the prestigious 2016 World Travel Awards ceremony for Asia & Australasia.

Voted by travelers and travel professionals globally, the World Travel Awards are widely hailed as the “Oscars” of the travel industry and are the hallmark of quality.

Ascott also clinched the coveted “Best Serviced Residence Group” in Travel Weekly Asia’s 2016 Readers Choice Awards. Honoring the finest in the travel industry, the awards are presented to outstanding companies for their first-class products, excellent service, and achievements that help boost the travel industry.

“Being voted the number one serviced residence brand in Asia and recently the leading brand in Europe and the Middle East motivates us to further push the boundaries of excellence,” said Mr. Tony Soh, Ascott’s Chief Corporate Officer. “We will continue to stay on top of industry trends, be it embracing technology, tailoring our customer experience and transforming our business model, to place Ascott in an even stronger position for the years ahead.”

Ascott received accolades in the following categories: Asia’s Leading Serviced Apartment Brand - The Ascott Limited, Hong Kong’s Leading Serviced Apartment Brand - The Ascott Limited, Indonesia’s Leading Serviced Apartment Brand - The Ascott Limited, Vietnam’s Leading Serviced Apartment Brand - Somerset Serviced Residence, Vietnam’s Leading Serviced Apartments - Somerset Grand Hanoi, Thailand’s Leading Serviced Apartments - Ascott Sathorn Bangkok, and Travel Weekly Asia 2016 Readers Choice Awards in Best Serviced Residence Group - The Ascott Limited.

In its 23rd year, the World Travel Awards are highly contested and many industry players vie for top honors. Ascott was recently conferred the title of the Middle East’s “Leading Serviced Apartment Brand”, with Ascott Park Place Dubai being named Dubai’s “Leading Serviced Apartments” and Somerset West Bay Doha named Qatar’s “Leading Serviced Apartments”.

Ascott also took home six accolades at the World Travel Awards ceremony for Europe last month, including “Leading Serviced Apartment Brand” in Europe, France and Germany. La Clef Tour Eiffel Paris was bestowed the title of France’s “Leading Serviced Apartments” while Citadines Michel Hamburg and Citadines Sainte-Catherine Brussels were awarded “Leading Serviced Apartments” in Germany and Belgium, respectively.

The Ascott Limited is a Singaporean company that has grown to be the world’s international serviced residence owner-operator. It has over 29,000 serviced residence units in key cities in the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East as well as over 18,000 units under development, for a total of more than 48,000 units in over 300 properties. The company operates three award-winning brands: Ascott, Citadines and Somerset. Its portfolio spans more than 100 cities across 27 countries.
