Condé Nast Excellence Awards for Spanish hotels

There has been good success for Spanish hotels at the annual Excellence Awards presented by independent multimedia publisher Condé Nast Johansens. The Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real in Fuerteventura has been awarded the accolade of ‘Best Coastal Hotel’ in their ‘Europe and the Mediterranean Area’ section. In addition, the Gran Hotel Son Net in Mallorca received the Best Hotel award.

The Condé Nast Johansens Excellence Awards were established to “recognize, reward and celebrate” excellence among the different hotels and spas that appear in their collection of luxury travel guides. These awards have become a sign of global recognition of the quality of luxury hotels among both guests and tourism professionals.

The nomination of the twelve finalists came about as a result of a combination of the Condé Nast online voting system, quality surveys completed by guests and the assessments of an international team of inspectors.

A statement by the jury with regard to the Gran Hotel Atlantis Bahia Real in Fuerteventura stated that “overlooking the clear waters of the Atlantic, this luxury hotel with its spacious promenades and palm tree-lined gardens reflects the splendour of Mudejar palaces”.

Of the Gran Hotel Son Net in Mallorca the jury stated that it was: “a property that perfectly marries its luxurious modern services with the refined elegance of a country house. Located on top of a hill it has its own vineyard and its serenity and quietness is only interrupted by the sound of a fountain”.

In the MICE Award section (Meetings, Incentives, Conventions, and Exhibitions), the Grand Hotel Bahia del Duque Resort in Tenerife has been proposed as a finalist for the annual executive meeting for the EMEA section (Europe, Middle East and Asia). MICE Awards are exclusively analyzed and evaluated by hotel and tourism professionals and experts represented by Helms Briscoe, Grass Roots and MPI.

The jury described the Gran Hotel Bahia del Duque Resort in Tenerife as “inspired by the traditional Canary Island architecture of the early twentieth century. With its Corinthian columns and huge blue swimming pools it is a real oasis of luxury”.
