Paul Jones, CEO of LUX* Resorts & Hotels, expressed his happiness. “We have been deeply touched to have been nominated in several categories and to have been voted Best Hotel Group of the Year by internet users and tourism sector professionals. This prize joins a string of awards won recently, which shows yet again that the innovative experiences we deliver to guests, as well as the services we offer, illustrate the high level of excellence of our hotels. And we hope to shine for many years to come!”
