The ULTRAs, which recognize the best luxury hotels, airlines, cruise companies, spas and destinations from all over the world, reflect the combined opinions of the readers of Ultratravel, the Daily Telegraph’s luxury travel magazine. This year, the organizers expanded the number of entry categories and added Best Hotel in the World classification and crowned the Burj Al Arab with the notable title.

“We are honored to be named the Best Hotel in the World and delighted to be recognized and voted again the Best Hotel in the Middle East by Ultratravel readers,” said the Burj Al Arab’s General Manager Heinrich Morio. “This kind of feedback serves as a source of inspiration and shows that despite the steep competition, we are still the preferred choice and a must-visit destination for discerning travelers worldwide.”

The Burj Al Arab has been voted the Best Hotel in the Middle East in Ultratravel readers’ survey for the past six years. The list of all ULTRAs winners will be published in the Summer edition of Ultratravel magazine, published on 1 June 2013.
