Belize’s Las Terrazas Resort Wins Prestigious 2011 World Travel Award and Is Named “Belize’s Leading Resort”
The Ambergris Caye hotel and resort wins the country’s top award, as voted on by more than 213,000 professionals worldwide
Press Release – San Pedro, Belize – November 10, 2011 – Las Terrazas Resort & Residences is pleased to announce 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.
“We are so honored to receive this momentous award from our peers,” says Shabir Walji, Managing Director of Las Terrazas Resort. “We are grateful to our colleagues that they have honored us for our hard work and effort in making Las Terrazas Belize’s top resort destination.”
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.”
Belize, the only English speaking country in Central America, has quickly become one of the premiere tropical vacation destinations for North American vacationers. Each year, tens of thousands of vacationers head south to the popular island of Ambergris Caye in Belize to scuba dive, honeymoon, hike, or just get away for a little while. The nation’s warm water oceans, tropical inland forests and ancient Mayan ruins are enough to keep even the most adventurous travelers occupied.
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.
Since spring of 2008, when Las Terrazas first wowed guests with its modern designs, clean architectural lines, and beautiful signature infinity pool, guests have been giving rave reviews to the newest of the Belize resorts on the island of Ambergris Caye. Guests to Las Terrazas continue to enjoy luxurious yet laid-back island living with town home style suites of one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations. These vacation suites have been fully furnished and handsomely appointed with Egyptian linens, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, flat-panel televisions and everything necessary for guests to enjoy their tropical vacation in style.
