The jury made up of 22 press correspondents and journalists who specialise in luxury tourism, the hotel industry and lifestyle, deliberated on the criteria of excellence, a sense of creativity, respect for heritage and tradition and making use of nature and related elements.
Considered a benchmark in the world of luxury tourism, this award rewards the professionalism of the teams at the Evian Resort and maintains it at a level of service close to excellence.
Evian Resort enjoys an exceptional location overlooking Lake Geneva, in 47-acre grounds set between the lake and mountains. With majestic surroundings and French-style elegance, the 5-star Hôtel Royal, member of the Leading Hotels of the World, is an architectural jewel with walls adorned by the stunning frescoes by Gustave Jaulmes. It re-opened in July 2015 following complete refurbishment. At the 4-star Hôtel Ermitage, a traditional, welcoming, stylish atmosphere provides a family-home feel with subtle touches of nature. Each of the two hotels has its own Spa concept while Evian's Thermal Spa offers treatments using Evian water. Each September, the Evian Resort Golf Club hosts The Evian Championship, the first Major to be held in Continental Europe.
