It wasn’t Greek wine but tears of joy that flowed in Athens on Saturday 28 October 2023 when the travel industry Oscars – the World Luxury Hotel, Restaurant, Spa & Travel Awards were presented for the 17th time. This year’s awards gala was hosted by the Grand Hyatt Athens. For 17 years, the World Luxury Awards have been hosting industry’s best on their red carpet. These are organisations that offer their specific target groups unique experiences, exceptional offers, the best concepts and, above all, outstanding service. No one understands this art better than Meinrad Schmiederer of the Dollenberg Schwarzwald Resort. Upscale gastronomy and luxury hotel management have been his life and passion for decades. For this, the textbook hotelier and restaurateur brought home four awards at global and continental level this year.
