The prestigious Les Chefs d’Or recently honoured Galadari Hotel’s Head Concierge Mohamed Akbar with the prestigious Golden Keys in an award ceremony held in India.  

Les Clefs d’Or is a society made up of professional hotel concierges, started in Paris in 1929. Les Clefs d’Or (translated as The Golden Keys) is a professional association of hotel concierges, with widespread members working worldwide. 

Les Clefs d’Or was officially founded in France in 1952, as a not-for-profit organisation based on the two pillars of service and friendship. Before earning the right to wear the golden keys, those who aspire to become a member must have numerous years of experience as a hotel concierge, pass comprehensive testing and prove beyond doubt, their ability to deliver the highest quality of service.

Les Clefs d’Or members fulfil an infinite variety of requests from the everyday to the extraordinary. As lifelong professional hotel concierges, their experience, knowledge and professional relationships make them the most reliable local experts and ambassadors of their chosen destinations.

Commenting on his iconic achievement Akbar said “It is indeed an honour to be recognised in this manner. I intend to be loyal to the ‘Keys of Gold’ title and uphold to the highest the responsibilities and honour the title brings.”
