The Roca Hotel Industry Awards, organised by Curt Ediciones, have honoured Gabriel Escarrer, the Executive Vice President and CEO of Meliá, and Meliá Hotels International, with two awards.
Escarrer received the Hotel and Tourism Personality Award in recognition of his career in charge of one of the leading travel companies in Spain and his dedication to the hotel industry. Escarrer collected the award at a gala event held in Barcelona.
The ME Dubai Hotel, designed by the late Zaha Hadid, also won the Best International Hotel of a Spanish Hotel Chain due to the distinctiveness of its architecture.
“It has been a pleasure to attend the Roca Awards and an honour to receive these two awards,” said Escarrer. “I am extremely proud to lead Meliá Hotels International, which, as these awards show, always seeks the highest degree of excellence in each of its hotels.”
