The winners of the 2009 Best In Dubai Awards were revealed at a glittering award ceremony at the Buddha Bar last night.
Winners were selected by an open vote at the www.bestindubai.ae website and reflect the public opinion of the finer side of Dubai life.
The campaign has captured the imagination of Dubai’s residents and thousands of voters have been registering their opinion in record numbers.
The chosen winners reflect the pace of change in Dubai with new attractions such as the Atlantis Palm Jumeirah and Japanese restaurant Okku picking up awards.
Two new categories, Best Customer Service and Best School or College, were added at this year’s ceremony. Delighted representatives of Etisalat and American University picked up their awards.
The ITP Special Recognition Award was given to the RTA for its ongoing work in raising awareness for environmental issues.
