Christmas came early this year with the Phoenix Restaurant team receiving an award for being one of the island’s top 40 restaurants. In fact, Phoenix placed 3rd, whilst also being one of the finalists for ‘Best Ambience’ and ‘Best Service’.
The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Awards are the island’s most popular culinary awards. The winning restaurants were selected following a survey in which 3,557 people participated. Besides the Top 40 Restaurants awards, the evening included additional awards in different categories, such as ‘Best Newcomer’, ‘Most Romantic Restaurant’, ‘Favourite Café’, etc. The Phoenix’s excellent service and beautiful setting clearly left an impression on many voters, having received numerous nominations for ‘Best Ambience’ and ‘Best Service’ in these categories.
Team members from The Phoenicia’s F&B and Kitchen teams left their chef whites and uniforms at home and joined colleagues from the Management team for a Gala Dinner which took place at The Xara Lodge in Rabat. It was a memorable evening which saw members of the industry get together to celebrate their accomplishments over a delightful meal.
We would of course like to take this opportunity to celebrate our team members for this success. It is no secret that we are immensely proud of our Phoenicia family for their continuous hard work and perseverance in delivering the best possible guest experiences.
And whilst these awards have in particular highlighted the efforts of our Phoenix Restaurant team members, it is worth recognizing our other departments who also contribute to creating wonderful experiences. From Guest Services who take the reservations and Concierge who welcome our guests in, to Housekeeping who do an impeccable job at keeping all areas spick and span, and others. A heartfelt thank you to all of you.
