Pacific Resort Aitutaki Wins CNBC Arabian Property Award
Aitutaki, Cook Islands, July 21, 2009 --( There’s positive, upbeat news for the property profession this week as the results of the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2009 in association with CNBC Arabiya have been revealed. Rightly proud of its success, Pacific Resort Aitutaki is delighted to announce that it has won an award in the category of Best Small Hotel Asia Pacific. Winners were invited to attend a high profile gala dinner at the Marina Mandarin in Singapore on July 16th where they were presented with their awards.

The event is part of the International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious competition dedicated to finding the best real estate professionals across the globe. The fact that Pacific Resort Aitutaki has won one of these coveted awards is proof that the Cook Islands is not only able to compete at this level but also triumph within the highly competitive Asia Pacific property arena.

Later this year, top scoring winners from the Asia Pacific Property Awards will compete against other winning companies from Europe, the UK, Europe, the Americas and Arabia to find the ultimate World’s Best in each category. Last year, the Asia Pacific region scooped no less than five World’s Best awards – an amazing feat and one which the property industry will be watching with interest to see if it can be matched or even beaten in 2009.

Entries were judged by a panel of professionals whose collective knowledge of the property industry is second to none and unsurpassed by any other property awards. Chaired by Eric Pickles, chairman of the Conservative Party, this year’s judges included Ben Wood, industry head property markets of Google UK; Peter Bolton King, group chief executive of the National Federation of Property Professionals; Imtiaz Farookhi, chief executive of the National House Building Council; Christopher Hall, president elect of FIABCI; Wilhelm Harnish, Master Builders of Australia (MBA); Thijis Stoffer, International Consortium of Real Estate Agents Association (ICREA); Helen Shield, editor-in-chief of International Homes magazine and Gillian Farr, head of design of Laura Ashley Home.

Greg Stanaway, chief executive officer and group general manager of Pacific Resort, welcomed the award as a testament to Pacific Resort’s focus on quality and design, “This is a great honor for us, and reinforcing our path to being recognized internationally as a quality-focused property manager and developer.”
