Las Terrazas Resort & Residences announced that they have been named Belize's Leading Resort at the 2011 World Travel Awards.
More than 5,000 companies, destinations and organizations are nominated for these prestigious annual awards, voted on by more than 213,000 industry professionals worldwide.
The World Travel Awards were started in 1994 to encourage the international travel and tourism community to embrace the pursuit of excellence in everything it does – from customer relations to creativity, product innovation and business acumen. The awards and judging are strictly controlled to ensure total fairness.
An awards ceremony took place October 19 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, where World Travel Awards founder Graham E. Cooke told guests “Travel and tourism in both South and Central America is providing a vital engine for growth, with the ability to generate jobs and growth despite this being one of the most challenging periods in global financial history.”
Las Terrazas Resort in Belize prides itself on its alluring combination of luxurious Oceanside accommodations and natural tropical adventure. Located on the beaches of the island of Ambergris Caye in Belize, Las Terrazas has its own onsite PADI certified dive shop and dive team. Having a luxury resort less than a mile from the northern hemisphere's largest underwater barrier reef, some of the best scuba diving in the world, and an underwater explosion of color including almost 400 species of fish and coral could make most resorts comfortably rest on this advantage alone. However, Las Terrazas continues to strive to improve and offers its guests opportunities to take excursions to ancient Mayan ruins and provides its guests complimentary use of on-site kayaks and Hobie cats. Vacationing at Las Terrazas truly is a “natural way of life,” says Walji.
