Pacific Resort Hotel Group is once again proud to announce that Pacific Resort Aitutaki has dominated at the Asia & Australasia regional ceremony for the 2013 World Travel Awards, capturing three major titles, also qualifying the 5 star boutique resort as finalists for the "World's Leading" category.
The Wall St Journal promotes the event as the “Travel Industry’s equivalent to the Oscars” and at this year’s red carpet ceremony on October the 1st, Pacific Resort Aitutaki was awarded “Australasia's Leading Boutique Resort,” “Cook Islands' Leading Resort” and “Cook Islands' Leading Villa Resort.” The prestigious World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony 2013 was held at Anantara Dubai The Palm Resort & Spa in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
All regional winners will now compete head to head in a final round of voting to decide who will triumph in WTA’s world awards – the ultimate accolade in the travel and tourism industry. The winners are announced on the night of the WTA Grand Final in December.
Pacific Resort Aitutaki has certainly been in the limelight in 2013 and this success has come hot on the heels of recent announcements of Pacific Resort Aitutaki being honoured as the “South Pacific Property of the Year” at the HM Awards for Hotel and Accommodation Excellence 2013 as well as the recipient of Seven Star Global Luxury Award 2013.
Greg Stanaway, CEO of Pacific Resort Hotel Group is proud of Pacific Resort Aitutaki’s achievements, “I am delighted that the combined efforts of our owners, management team and staff is being recognised with these accolades as we continue to enhance our guest experience at Pacific Resort Aitutaki,” he said. “More importantly it is an acknowledgement by our global travel partners that they have great confidence in our product and our delivery."
