Crystal Awards Asia Pacific 2010 Gala & Winners

While the entire Wellness Summit is a rich, stimulating experience, the highlight of the conference is always the gala Crystal Awards evening, and this year was no different.  This year, nominees and guests gathered amidst the lush greenery of Fort Canning Park to enjoy each others company and await the announcement of the winners for 2010.

Now in its seventh year, The Crystal Awards puts nominees through a stringent audit and evaluation process, judging entrants on specific criteria, merits, and actual performance during secret shopping visits.  The winners were revealed throughout the celebratory evening whilst attendees enjoyed a fine meal and were entertained by Jamila, a dance troupe showcasing a fusion of Middle Eastern dance moves emblematic of the multi-cultural host city, Singapore.

As an added bonus, fortunate attendee-winners of a Lucky Draw walked away with two-night complimentary stays, with spa treatments, generously given by Crystal Award winners The Peninsula Tokyo, COMO Shambala Estate, Bali, CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort and Spa, Maldives, and Chiva-Som International Health Resort, Hua Hin, Thailand.

This year was reputedly a very tight competition, but in the end, someone has to win.  Congratulations to all of these years winners:
