The award was presented by Tou-rism Minister Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansur to Westin general manager Kim Powley and director of communications Tiang Li Ming.
The tourism award is deemed as the highest benchmark for the hospitality standards in the country, with more than 500 nominees vying for 43 awards in 11 categories.
“I am very proud of each and everyone for their contributions towards achieving this prestigious award. This award is not a result of one person or from a group of people; it takes an entire hotel’s team effort to get this recognition,” said Powley.
The Westin was also the recipient of the FIABCI Pri d’ Excellence Award 2006 in the Hotel and Resort Development Category, and FIABCI Malaysia Property Awards in the Hotel Development category for its Best Design Concept.
