A first in the Far East


Tigre de Cristal Hotel and Resort is the first hotel nominated in the Far East of Russia for the World Travel Awards in the category of Russia’s Leading Hotel 2017, according to information provided to Business Daily by the company yesterday.
‘Some of what differentiates us from the other nominees is our location in the heart of Northeast Asia, and extensive gaming and non-gaming facilities,’ a spokesperson for Summit Ascent Holdings Ltd., the Lawrence Ho company which runs Tigre de Cristal, said.
The company claimed that the recognition ‘demonstrates the rising awareness and development of Vladivostok and the Primoski Krai,’ while highlighting the role the hotel plays in ‘the development of the region as a tourism destination.’
Twelve hotels have been nominated for the category this year.
Voting closes on August 6.
