“When travel restrictions eased, it was our strong, long-term partnerships and vertically integrated business model that’s enabled us to be the first operator to bring tourists back to many destinations.” said David Burling, CEO Markets & Airlines TUI Group. “Year-after-year our hotel partners have helped us create unforgettable holidays for our customers. Despite the challenges of restrictions and ever-changing travel advice, hotel partners have worked harder than ever to deliver outstandingly high customer satisfaction and its more important than ever to recognise their incredible achievements. A big congratulations to all of our winning hotel partners.”

Every time a customer travels with TUI they can give feedback and rate their holiday, including their hotel stay. These Customer Satisfaction Questionnaires (CSQs) form the basis for selecting TUI Global Hotel Award winners.

This year’s award ceremony was set to be hosted in-person during ITB Berlin. When it was announced the 2022 tourism trade fair would be virtual, TUI created a virtual ceremony to recognise partners. The plan is to announce TUI Global Hotel Awards 2023 in person.
