Las Terrazas Resort Wins TripAdvisor® 2011 Travelers’ Choice® Award
Posted January 20, 2011
Las Terrazas Resort in Belize Awarded 2011 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award and Selected as one of the Top 10 Luxury Hotels in South and Central America
Las Terrazas, a premier luxury resort in Belize, is pleased to announce that they have been chosen as a Top 10 Luxury Hotel for South & Central America by TripAdvisor® in its 2011 Travelers’ Choice® awards. Now in its ninth year, the annual TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards honor the world’s best hotels, earning their distinction from those who know them best - real travelers.
Unlike any other hotel awards programs in the world, the TripAdvisor® Travelers' Choice® winners are based on millions of real and unbiased reviews and opinions about hotels on tripadvisor.com™ and content from across the web.
“With the help of millions of travelers around the globe, TripAdvisor is thrilled to recognize the world’s most outstanding hotels for the ninth year of the Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Karen Drake, senior director of communications for TripAdvisor. “From the best bargain hotels to best luxury hotels, remarkable service, value and quality are the hallmarks of our Travelers’ Choice winners.”
“We extremely pleased to have been honored with such a prestigious award by the largest travel site on the globe, TripAdvisor,” said Carolyn Stone, Director of Sales at Las Terrazas. “Even more important to us is the fact that this award is determined by the actual travelers from around the world. We are grateful to our customers that they have honored us for our hard work and effort in making Las Terrazas Resort in Belize one of the top vacation destinations in the South and Central America”, added Ms. Stone.
Belize, the only English speaking country in Central America, has quickly become one of the premiere tropical vacation destinations for North American vacationers. Each year, tens of thousands of vacationers head south to the popular island of Ambergris Caye in Belize to scuba dive, honeymoon, hike, or just get away for a little while. The nation's warm water oceans, tropical inland forests and ancient Mayan ruins are enough to keep even the most adventurous travelers occupied.
Las Terrazas Resort in Belize prides itself on its alluring combination of luxurious oceanside accommodations and natural tropical adventure. Located on the beaches of the island of Ambergris Caye in Belize, Las Terrazas has its own onsite PADI certified dive shop and dive team. Having a luxury resort less than a mile from the northern hemisphere's largest underwater barrier reef, some of the best scuba diving in the world, and an underwater explosion of color including almost 400 species of fish and coral could make most resorts comfortably rest on this advantage alone. However, Las Terrazas resort strives to be more than a one dimensional resort like many of the other resorts in Belize and continues to strive to improve and offers its guests opportunities to take excursions to ancient Mayan ruins and provides its guests complimentary use of on-site kayaks and Hobie cats. Vacationing at Las Terrazas truly is a “natural way of life”.
Since spring of 2008, when Las Terrazas first opened with its modern designs, clean architectural lines, and beautiful signature infinity pool, guests have been giving rave reviews to the newest of the Belize resorts on the island of Ambergris Caye. Now after receiving the coveted TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Award these reviews have turned into tangible accolades of a worldwide scope. Guests to Las Terrazas continue to enjoy luxurious yet laid-back island living with town home style suites of 1,2 and 3 bedroom configurations. These vacation suites have been fully furnished and handsomely appointed with Egyptian linens, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, flat-panel televisions and everything necessary for guests to enjoy their tropical vacation in style.
