LONDON, ENGLAND – With its reputation for outstanding service and a strong commitment to excellence, Grenada’s primer luxury hideaway, Spice Island Beach Resort has for the ninth consecutive year won the Virgin Holidays’ Gold Award as the #1 property in the tour operator’s exclusive worldwide Platinum Collection.
This most recent accomplishment adds to the lengthy list of prestigious accolades bestowed on the resort and its dedicated staff.
Chairman and Managing Director Sir Royston Hopkin KCMG and Lady Hopkin were on hand to receive the award during the Virgin Holidays’ Awards banquet held at the Tate Modern Art Gallery in London on Sunday ( November 2).
Mark Anderson, managing director of Virgin Holidays, announced the resort’s latest achievement as the Gold Winner, emphasising the hard work and dedication that has led to this top honor consistently, placing the resort this year ahead of Royal Mirage Dubai and the Encore at Wynn Las Vegas, which took home the bronze and silver awardsn respectively.
“This notable award is a symbol of the commitment put forth by my General Manager, Brian Hardy, and every member of the Spice Island Beach Resort team,” said Sir Royston.
“From our reservation specialists, culinary team and our gardeners, to our housekeeping and maintenance employees, each staff member plays a key role and takes pride in creating that perfect vacation experience. We are proud of ourselves as the #1 property in Virgin Holidays’ Platinum Collection,” Sir Royston added.
The resort, which was just honored with the coveted Six Star Diamond Award by the American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, recently completed a multi-million dollar series of upgrades and enhancements to the already unparalleled property to ensure the resort remains at the forefront of the luxury tourism market.
“This year’s honour is even more significant as our team ensured that the renovation project did not impact the seamless vacation experience we deliver,” said the proud hotelier, noting the resort’s hospitality philosophy, centered around unobtrusive attentiveness, is as much a factor in guests’ enjoyment of the property as its unpretentious, luxury setting and delectable, farm-to-table culinary program.
Spice Island Beach Resort is a proud member of the esteemed Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) collection and the first and only resort in Grenada to be featured in the exclusive Virtuoso network’s Hotels & Resorts Program and Signature Hotels & Resorts Collection.
