The Windmills Resort in KwaZulu-Natal was once again honoured at the prestigious African Bridal Industry Academy (ABIA) Bride’s Choice Award. The Midlands boutique hotel won the title of best coastal boutique hotel for the second consecutive year and scooped the award for best in-house wedding planner.
The Windmills Resort was nominated in a further three categories and reached the finals in the wedding caterer, reception venue and first night honeymoon destination categories.
General manager of The Windmills Resort, Andre Schoeman, expressed his delight with the awards. “We are extremely proud of this achievement, which is definitely the result of great team work. I wouldn’t trade my team for any other in the world! Winning the best boutique hotel award for the second year running shows great consistency in terms of the level of service excellence we have achieved. This also means that we are now eligible for the national awards, which adds even more to our reputation for dedicated service and commitment to superior service,” mentions Schoeman.
The ABIA awards were established in 2008 to monitor service quality within the wedding industry. The competition is based on anonymous votes submitted by brides, who have used the services of the more than 15000 service suppliers accredited to the organisation.
The Windmills Resort has been extensively renovated over the past few years. The hotel was completely refurbished and various luxury self-catering lodges have been added to their offering. The venue also offers supremely elegant wedding venues, a wedding chapel on the lake with breath-taking scenic views, state-of-the-art kitchen facilities, beautifully appointed rooms, a fine dining restaurant, coffee lounge and banqueting hall as well as superb conference facilities.
