Blue Waters tops the list of best Antigua resorts and hotels at World Travel Awards
The Blue Waters resort has once again proven why it is such a popular choice for travellers booking Antigua holidays. The luxury resort has been named the best hotel in Antigua and Barbuda at the 2012 annual World Travel Awards. This is the fourth time Blue Waters has come away with this award making the accomplishment all the more impressive.
The Blue Waters resort in the Caribbean island of Antigua has proven once again why it is the premier choice for travellers booking Antigua holidays. This beautiful luxury resort has recently been named the best resort in Antigua and Barbuda at the 2012 World Travel Awards (WTA).
The victory has been made even sweeter in light of the fact that this is the fourth time the Blue Waters resort has come away with the distinction, previously topping the category in the 2003, 2006 and 2010 editions of the World Travel Awards. General Manager at the Blue Waters hotel, Anderson Howard stated, “This award is testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff to ensure Blue Waters is the most luxurious resort in Antigua and Barbuda”.
With its beach front location offering romantic views of the turquoise waters, seven freshwater pools, expansive gardens and secluded beach coves there is little wonder why the Blue Waters resort has made such an impression in the industry. In addition to the prestigious WTA victories the resorts impressive list of accolades include the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Award, TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2012 as well as being named the best waterfront villa in the world by Harpers and Queen Magazine in 2002.
Blue Waters’ latest award will certainly help to boost company morale, the award comes at time where management at other Antigua resorts and hotels have expressed cautious outlooks on occupancy rates in light of the recent two per cent increase in room rates coupled and the accompanying increase in airport taxes. The General Manager of the Antigua Hotels and Tourist Association (AHTA) Neil Forrester stated, “Some of the hoteliers I've spoken to say their forecasts for Christmas are a little bit more positive than last year, but after Christmas we don't have any idea (because) the bookings are not there yet … and they're coming so much later. So in the main season in February and March, there's still a lot of open space which we hope will fill”
With resorts like Blue Waters taking center stage and showcasing all that the Antigua holidays industry has to offer, tourism officials in Antigua will be hoping that the offer will prove to be too irresistible for those travellers longing for a taste of paradise despite the increased costs.
