Top travel specialist Kuoni, has won the prestigious ULTRA (Ultimate Luxury Travel Related Award) for Best Large Luxury Tour Operator at the Daily Telegraph's Ultratravel Awards for the fifth consecutive year, as voted by the readers of the Daily Telegraph's Ultratravel magazine.
The awards, hosted by Telegraph Travel Editor Graham Boynton, were held on Monday 16th May at London's Savoy Hotel, supported by a host of 'Help for Heroes' celebrities, including venerated heroes like the oldest living spitfire pilot and the widow of an incredible bomb disposal expert who saved many, many lives.
Commenting on the win, Kuoni UK MD, Joanna Edmunds said; "I thoroughly enjoyed the Ultratravel Awards ceremony which was very moving and very humbling. Whilst our work may not be in quite the same league I am incredibly proud that we have been voted Number One once again by the Telegraph's readers. It is a real testament to all of our staff's hard work, care and attention".
Each year the Ultra's raise money for a specific charity and this year the awards will be helping to support the 'Help for Heroes' charity with its efforts to provide grants that aim to provide practical direct support for wounded UK military servicemen and women. At the recent event at the Savoy in London, guests were fortunate to meet some of these heroes and hear their stories.
