In its 26th year, the World Travel Awards highlights the best of global travel and tourism in a series of continental award ceremonies. Incredibly far-spanning, ceremonies are held in Asia, Africa, North, South and Central America, the Caribbean, Indian Ocean and the Middle East. There is also a separate category for Travel Technology and a final World ceremony in which the global overall winners are announced.
From the shortlisted nominees, those chosen by the panel are put to a public vote, with both members of the industry and those outside the industry casting their vote in each category.
We are pleased to announce that Elephant Hills secured first place in the category of Asia’s Leading Luxury Camping Company, having been pitted against nominees from all over Asia. That we were overwhelmingly voted winners by a mixture of those within the travel industry and the public is a source of great pride.
Our ethical elephant experience and luxury tented accommodation have seen us win a number of awards over the years, with the most recent being the PATA Grand Award for environmental commitment. And while camping only represents a small part of what our tours offer, it is evidently an area in which we excel.
Our safari-style tents come fully furnished, with hotel quality beds and western en-suite. Set in two picturesque locations within Khao Sok, the camps allow guests to experience the best of rainforested Southern Thailand, without sacrificing the comforts of home.
A range of activities are included in all of our full-board tours, with the highlight being a visit to our very own chain-free elephant park where guests have the opportunity to interact with Asian elephants in a respectful way. Guests visit us from all over the world to experience our tours, and the abundance of complimentary reviews which have placed us in the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame makes it clear that we offer something very special.
The World Travel Awards Asia & Oceania Gala Ceremony will celebrate the winners of each category, including Asia’s Leading Airline, Asia’s Leading Tourist Board and Asia’s Leading Travel Agency. It goes without saying that being included in such a prestigious line-up makes us incredibly proud of what we’ve achieved at Elephant Hills.
The award ceremony took place at Vinpearl Convention Centre Phu Quoc, Vietnam on October 12th 2019.
