Australian Hotels Association (WA) winners of the 2021 AHA-Aon Hospitality Awards for Excellence, presented last night at the Little Creatures Gala Ball.
A record crowd packed Crown Towers Perth last night to celebrate the winners of the 2021 AHA-Aon Hospitality Awards for Excellence, which was hosted at the Little Creatures Gala Ball.
AHA(WA) CEO Bradley Woods said for the second year running, the gala ball was largest gathering of hospitality professionals anywhere in Australia, underscoring the fortunate position WA has enjoyed for much of the past 12 months.
“WA’s hotel and hospitality industry has continued to face challenges associated with COVID-19, but there is no question that we are in a far better situation than most, which has allowed us to host Australia’s largest hospitality industry event two years in a row,” Mr Woods said.
“Despite navigating several lockdowns, restrictions, border closures and the ongoing uncertainty of the pandemic, WA’s bars, pubs, hotels, taverns and restaurants have reached new levels of excellence in hospitality – these awards celebrate this determination and success.”
“WA now boasts world-class hospitality venues, which is reflected in the quality of the winners and finalists of this year’s awards – Western Australians really are spoiled for choice across the state.”
Last night’s award categories included WA’s Best Regional Hospitality Venue won by Treendale Farm Hotel, Group Venue Operator Award won ARK Group, Cocktail Bar Award won by Tiki as FK, Restaurant Award won by Tonic & Ginger (The Old Synagogue), Small Bar Award won by Caballitos, Wine List Award won by The Shorehouse and Perth’s Best Hospitality Venue won by The Royal Hotel Perth.
Perth Airport and Healthy Mind Menu were also announced as recipients of the Service to Australia Awards for their contribution to the WA community during the pandemic.
