I am very happy to announce that the most exclusive and coveted Luxury Hospitality awards will be hosted on Greek’s biggest island this year! The 2018 Seven Stars Luxury Hospitality & Lifestyle Awards (SSLHLA) will be held in beautiful Crete on October 6th, at the pristine OUT OF THE BLUE Capsis Elite Resort. This is actually the very first time that an internationally acclaimed award ceremony will be taking place on the Island of Crete.
The leading lights of the tourism industry from around the globe will be in attendance to collect the SIGNUM VIRTUTIS, the seal of excellence. Amongst these industry leaders, there will be numerous VIP’s such as HSH Prince Massimiliano della Torre e Tasso, HSH Princess Costanza della Torre e Tasso and HRH Nathalie Princess of Hohenzollern.
This year’s host is the talented and beautiful Ece Vahapoglu, a Celebrity Presenter, author, and television host from Turkey. The night will consist of a lavish cocktail reception, a sumptuous Gala dinner, the awards presentations and lively entertainment. The SSLHLA ceremony is a global event attracting winners from all over the world so it is sure to be a fabulous evening!
Khalil EL-Mouelhy, Chairman of the Awards commented: “We are thrilled to hold our 6th Gala Ceremony on the Island of Crete. The Island is home to some true gems in terms of resorts and is an ever-growing destination. OUT OF THE BLUE Capsis Elite Resort, with its stunning location, possesses all the facilities and amenities required for this exclusive and demanding event and we are delighted to be working together with them.
