Villa del Palmar Loreto Recognized as Mexico and Central America’s Leading Resort and Mexico’s Leading Beach Resort Last year, Villa del Palmar Loreto was recognized as Mexico’s Leading Beach Resort—a title the resort is taking home two years in a row. This year, the resort has also taken home the title in a new category highlighting the resort’s excellence throughout the region. “It’s an honor to be recognized two years in a row by such a renowned awards organization, especially with the other properties in consideration for this award” said Owen Perry, co-owner and president of Villa Group. “We strive to offer unique experiences where our guests can discover the Islands of Loreto while enjoying luxurious relaxation, endless adventure and unparalleled hospitality.” In it’s 23rd year, the World Travel Awards serves to recognize, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the global travel and tourism industry. Awards are presented across three tiers – country, regional and world awards – and are voted on by the public, as well as qualified executives in the tourism industry. This year, Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto has been awarded at both the regional and country level. For Mexico and Central America’s Leading Resort, other nominees included the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagoyo, Gamboa Rainforest Resort, Las Ventanas al Paraiso, A Rosewood Resort, ME Cabo, Nizuc, Parador Resort & Spa, Secrets Playa Bonita Panama and The Westin Resort & Spa, Puerto Vallarta. For Mexico’s Leading Beach Resort, other nominees included CUIXMALA, Hyatt Ziva Cancun, Rosewood Mayakobá, Riviera Maya, The Resort at Pedregal and The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort. Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is a destination resort located between the impressive Sierra de la Giganta mountain range and the beautiful Sea of Cortez, overlooking Danzante Island. It features 181 beautifully appointed Deluxe Ocean View rooms ranging in size from one, two and three bedroom suites with balcony or terrace and stunning ocean or mountain views. The resort also offers outstanding restaurants with authentic and local food, an attentive English-speaking staff, five swimming pools, a 39,000-square-foot spa, two tennis courts and a warm climate year-round. This November, the resort will unveil its new 7,400-yard Danzante Bay Golf Course, designed by Rees Jones, a world-renowned golf architect often referred to as the “The Open Doctor.” The Danzante Bay Golf Course is a true rarity, featuring a mix of stunning views and luscious green holes, including the breathtaking Hole 17, which Jones has praised as one of the best in the world. In addition to the World Travel Awards, the resort’s Sabila Spa has also been nominated as Mexico’s Best Hotel Spa by the World Spa Awards, the sister program to the World Travel Awards. The World Spa Awards celebrates and rewards spa industry excellence and are awarded through a voting process similar to that of the World Travel Awards.
