Travel and Leisure lists Grand Velas Riviera Maya Resorts in Best Hotels in the World Awards
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."
Speaking about the success of the Cancun hotels in the Rivera Maya, the Managing Director for the Grand Velas Resorts, Fernando Garcia Rossette, added:
"We are especially proud to make our debut on Travel + Leisure's 500 List of Best Hotels in the World. It will be another banner year for our resorts thanks to our staff; the award coming on the heels of Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit's 10th Anniversary, another AAA Five Diamond rating, two Conde Nast Traveller's Reader's Choice Awards and the resort's inclusion in Forbes' roundup of the 10 Coolest All-Inclusive Resorts."
