Fife’s Balbirnie House Hotel has today been named as the winner of the Global ‘Wedding Retreat of the Year’ at a glittering Haute Grandeur global hotel awards ceremony, which took place at the Palazzo Versace in Dubai.
This is an unprecedented result for Scotland’s hospitality and tourism sectors.
As six representatives of Balbirnie’s entire brigade, the hotel’s events and wedding planning team travelled to the Middle East to collect the award, which saw the Scottish hotel go up against the world’s finest establishments.
It’s the third year in a row that Balbirnie House has seen success at the by-invitation-only awards – last year, Balbirnie’s owners Nicholas and Gaynor Russell travelled to Thailand to accept the titles of Europe’s best Romantic Hotel, Europe’s Best Function Venue Hotel and Europe’s Best Destination Wedding Hotel, whilst 2016 saw the hotel named 'Europe's Best Destination Wedding Retreat'.
In celebration of the new global award, Scotland Saltire blue smoke was seen coming out of the chimneys of the Grade A-Listed Balbirnie House.
Nicholas Russell has said of the achievement: ‘To see Balbirnie House go number 1 in the world, and achieve something for Scotland that has never ever been achieved before, is remarkable. The award is dedicated to our brigade past and present, the men, women, boys and girls who made it happen’.
