(MENAFN Press) JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort, the flagship five-star property of JA Resorts & Hotels, has been recognised at the prestigious World Travel Awards as the 'World's Leading Family Resort' in Doha, Qatar, for the third consecutive year, at the Grand Final of the World Travel Awards 2013.

In addition, sister Dubai property, JA Oasis Beach Tower, situated on the popular resort promenade The Walk, JBR, has been honoured as the 'World's Leading Serviced Apartment Hotel' for the second year in a row.

Graham E. Cooke, President & Founder, World Travel Awards, said: "JA Resorts & Hotels has enjoyed another fruitful year as the group continues to develop its range of products and its gracious brand of hospitality. We congratulate its flagship property, JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort, for winning 'World's Leading Family Resort', as well as JA Oasis Beach Tower for being voted 'World's Leading Serviced Apartment Hotel'."

Fredrik Reinisch, General Manager of JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort said "To receive this award for the third year in a row is outstanding. We've undertaken a number of changes over the past 18 months, all aimed at improving our family offering. To receive this award for the third time in a row is a true testament to the team, our guests and Dubai in general. We pride ourselves on being a family resort and are delighted to receive the most celebrated award in the travel industry."

The award winning JA Jebel Ali Golf Resort has a long standing tradition of heartfelt hospitality and is home to two world class properties: JA Jebel Ali Beach Hotel and JA Palm Tree Court catering to guests of all ages and nationalities. A selection of 15 restaurants and bars offer a premium choice of cuisine for guests. A vast selection of leisure activities and sports facilities along from a championship-standard nine-hole golf course to deep-sea fishing trips and from horse riding to spa treatments, the resort ensures activities for every member of the family.

Torsten Obermann, General Manager of JA Oasis Beach Tower attended the awards said "We believe that our luxurious product and convenient location ticks many boxes even for the most discerning guests. However what gives us an edge is our service. This award recognises the superb effort put in by all members of the hotel team, to go the extra mile, for the second year running."

JA Oasis Beach Tower is a deluxe hotel apartment tower, located on 'The Walk' in Dubai Marina. An iconic design landmark, the 245-metre tower with 180 spacious, luxury serviced apartments is just 50 metres from the public beach and offers amazing views of Dubai Marina, the Arabian Gulf and The Palm Jumeirah. Facilities include a buffet restaurant 'thyme' along with three other restaurants and bars, a pool, jacuzzi, waterslide for kids, gymnasium and ChillZone kids club.

David Thomson, Chief Operating Officer of JA Resorts & Hotels said "To have two hotels recognised in two different categories at the World Travel Awards is a tribute to the quality of our facilities, superior service levels and sound management practice. Guests more than ever before demand value and with access to new media so readily available, performing consistently well is an absolute must."

JA Resorts & Hotels is a company steeped in tradition with over 30 years of experience in the hospitality market managing resorts and hotels. Established in 1981 with the opening of Jebel Ali Hotel, the company has remained true to its Arabic roots with its headquarters in the United Arab Emirates. It also has offices in the United Kingdom, Germany and Russia. Previously known as Jebel Ali International Hotels, it formally changed its name to JA Resorts & Hotels after a strategic rebrand in 2012. The result has seen the start of a consistent and engaging brand that will enhance the group's presence overseas as they look to expand into more international markets.
