Meriton Serviced Apartments has been crowned ‘Australasia’s Leading Serviced ApartmentsBrand’ at a gala red-carpet event for the 2014 World Travel Awards hosted at The Oberoi in New Delhi, India. It is the first time the company has won the award in its 11-year operation and signals an increasingly competitive profile on the world stage. Meriton Serviced Apartments beat properties from around the world to the prestigious accolade, including last year’s winner Frasers Suites, Singapore’s Somerset Residences and the international Citadines chain. Its World Tower property in Sydney was a finalist in the ‘Australasia’s Leading Serviced Apartments’ category.
Founded by property entrepreneur Harry Triguboff, Meriton Serviced Apartments (MSA) began as an offshoot of residential development company Meriton Group and quickly made a name for itself by specialising in bigger, ‘oversized’ apartment accommodation. Today, Meriton Serviced Apartments has grown to 13 properties around Australia’s east coast, offering accommodation in studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom serviced apartments as well as its luxurious Penthouse Collection. The MSA chain regularly appears in the number one spot on user-reviewed travel website Tripadvisor, and in 2013 was named the nation’s fastest-growing accommodation brand.
“This award is tremendously meaningful for us as we become more of a presence in the global
travel market,” said Meriton Serviced Apartments National Manager Matthew Thomas. “We pride ourselves on delivering excellent standards of accommodation and our dedicated staff play an enormous role in any success. We’re delighted at this vote of confidence from our guests – recognition like this is a wonderful reflection of that valued relationship.”
The 2014 World Travel Awards attracted more than 50,000 votes across a range of categories
dedicated to reflecting the best of travel and tourism industry. Established in 1993, the awards are voted by travel and tourism professionals worldwide, as well as hotel guests. Regional winners will now compete head to head in a final round of voting to determine the international winners.
