Three Top Belize Resorts Win World Travel Awards

El Secreto, Victoria House and Turtle Inn, three of Belize’s top beach resorts have won accolades at the 21st World Travel Awards.

The World Travel Awards (WTA) was established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry and today it is recognized globally as the hallmark of quality with winners setting the benchmark to which all others aspire.

El Secreto Beach Resort opened in 2012 and is located on a sandy strip eleven miles north of the town of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. The luxury resort is comprised of 13 private villas kitted out with Egyptian cotton sheets, outdoor Jacuzzis and private decks with hammocks. A gourmet restaurant, an elegant swimming pool and a spa are also onsite. The resort is only 30 minutes by boat from San Pedro Town.

Also located in Ambergris Caye is Victoria House, one of the most luxurious places you’ll ever want to stroll around barefoot. The 42 room resort spans ten acres of white sand beaches and lush tropical gardens. Whether you choose to bask in the warm Caribbean sun, fish, dive, snorkel or visit an ancient Mayan ruin, Victoria House is the place to stay for your vacation, honeymoon or destination wedding.

Turtle Inn is a 25 room seafront hideaway that is owned by film director Francis Ford Coppola. The resort is located in Placencia and offers individual thatched cottages decorated with handcrafted Balinese furnishings that are naturally cooled by the ever-present Caribbean Sea breezes. Over the years, the resort has also won awards as one of the best in Central and South America by Trip Advisor and Conde Nast Traveler.

This year, WTA celebrated its historic 21st anniversary and its annual program is renowned as the most prestigious and comprehensive in the travel and tourism industry.

“It is with a great pleasure that we announce the winners of the 21st World Travel Awards, voted by travel agents worldwide,” states the WTA website in announcing the 2014 World Travel Award Winners for Central America.

The Belize Hub Team was pleased to see El Secreto, Victoria House and Turtle Inn on the WTA list for 2014 and it is interesting to note that just last month they had made it on our list of Top 25 Luxury Hotels & Resorts in Belize.

On behalf of our team, we extend our heartfelt congratulations to all three resorts.
