Jumeirah Vittaveli has bagged five awards at the 2019 World Luxury Spa and Restaurant Awards, celebrated this past weekend in St Petersburg, Russia. Swarna and Fenesse restaurants, as well as Talise Spa, received International recognition for the third year in a row.

Swarna was recognized as “Best Indian Cuisine” and “Most Luxurious Ambience,” both as a Continent winner. Swarna serves inspired Indian cuisine in an exceptional culinary experience with three open-air dining cabanas and one Chef’s table, all set-up amidst a lush Maharaja style garden venue. The Swarna Gold menu celebrates exclusivity and authenticity, with finest handpicked ingredients from different states of India all finished with a touch of edible gold.

The over-water French fine dining venue Fenesse won two Continent awards – “Most Romantic Atmosphere” and “Best French Cuisine.” The Talise Spa was awarded Regional winner as “Leading Luxury Wellness Spa.”

“Winning these awards yet again this year attests to our efforts to excel in offering memorable dining to our guests on a daily basis—made possible through the support of the outstanding team we have on the resort. We are all beyond honoured to see our efforts recognised on a global stage,” says Amit Majumder, General Manager of Jumeirah Vittaveli.
