Two Grand Velas Resort properties have been included in Travel + Leisure magazine's list of 500 Best Hotels in the World. Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and Grand Velas Riviera Maya are favourites for tourists taking Cancun holidays and the luxury hotels were voted in the 2012 World's Best Awards readers' survey.
Two Grand Velas resorts have been honoured in Travel + Leisure magazine's World's Best Awards readers' survey. Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit and Grand Velas Riviera Maya are both popular resorts for Cancun holidays and this is the first time that both properties have been included in the list's top 20 resorts in Mexico.
"We are deeply honoured our resorts have been recognized as two of the world's best," commented Juan Vela, Vice President of Operations of Velas Resorts. "We are thankful to our loyal guests and committed staff who helped make this happen."
