QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand - Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa has been awarded the prestigious title of the Leading Hotel in New Zealand at the 21st annual World Travel Awards ceremony for travel excellence.

Held in India, the World Travel Awards ceremony is highly regarded in the international travel industry. This past year saw the most competitive field of award entrants with a record number of 9,000 nominees. Only a small number of finalists were chosen to represent each region.

The World Travel Awards seek out and reward the very best travel businesses in the world - the brands pushing the boundaries of excellence and implementing ground-breaking ideas.

"We are delighted to be recognised as a benchmark provider for New Zealand accommodation," said Chris Ehmann, general manager, Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa. "This honour reflects the dedication and professionalism by all team members at Hilton Queenstown Resort & Spa."

The achievement also complements the hotel's 2013 World Ski Awards accomplishment as the ski hotel of choice in New Zealand as well as being named one of the hottest new hotels in the world by Conde Nast Traveler's 2012 Hot List.

Set on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and among Queenstown's mountainous landscape made famous world-wide, the resort boasts the expertise of the Hilton brand, bold styling and intimate service. The 220-room property caters cleverly to the needs of the leisure and business traveller with a spectacular lake-side location, hassle free facilities and professional service.
