For a second year in a row, Hacienda Tres Rios Resort, Spa & Nature Park received two of the coveted World Travel Awards for “Mexico’s Leading All-Inclusive Resort” and “Leading Green Hotel in Mexico and Central America.”
Described as the “Oscars” of the travel industry by The Wall Street Journal, the World Travel Awards is acknowledged as the foremost authority on recognizing the excellence of products and services in the tourism industry.
According to the organizing committee of the World Travel Awards, more than 185,000 industry professionals, including travel agencies, tour operators, and tourism companies in 160 countries around the world, participated in the voting process to elect the “best of the best.”
Accepting the awards for Hacienda Tres Rios was Orlando Arroyo, President of the Board of Directors of Tres Ríos, and was accompanied by Erika Garcia, CEO of Yucatan Holidays Travel.
Orlando Arroyo, representing Tres Rios, expressed his appreciation of the distinctive selection of Hacienda Tres Rios. He emphasized the importance of increasing travel to Mexico and Latin America as well as the industry’s shift towards responsible tourism.
Last year, the grand gala awards ceremony was held in Mexico for the first time in its 16-year history and was hosted by Hacienda Tres Rios in the Riviera Maya. This year, the red-carpet event took place at Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica.
The Riviera Maya resort recently received the 2010 Skal International Ecotourism Award during the organization’s 71st World Congress in Sydney, Australia. With two Green Globe Certifications, the eco-friendly resort was identified by judges as “one of the most sustainable resorts in the world” by Skal International judges.
