Meanwhile, The Chancery Pavilion has been chosen as the hospitality partner for central and northern India.
SATA’s Vice President Suraj Khan commented that the SATA brand has been widely recognised throughout South Asia and the considerable increase in nominations proves the value of the brand by the tourism industry as a whole.

SATA was first launched last year by the Maldives based events company Highrise, having received endorsements from all regional tourism boards and associations. SATA remains to be the first ever regional travel awards endorsed by multinational associations, providing the tourism sector of the South Asian region with recognition for their services and facilities while encouraging to raise the overall hospitality standard of the South Asian Region.
