World Travel Awards 2017
The Pestana Hotel Group has just received the highest international tourism award for three of its hotels. For the 2nd consecutive year, Pestana Porto Santo All Inclusive & Spa Beach Resort received the award for Europe's Leading All Inclusive Resort. Pestana Palace Lisbon was elected Europe's Leading Luxury Business Hotel and the Pestana CR7 Funchal was elected Portugal's Leading Boutique Hotel.
These prizes were awarded by the World Travel Awards 2017, reinforcing the excellence of the largest international hotel group of Portuguese origin. The awards ceremony took place last Saturday, September 30th, in St. Petersburg, Russia, which also elected Portugal as Best Tourist Destination in Europe, Algarve as the Best Beach Destination and Madeira as Best Insular Destination.
José Theotónio, CEO of the Pestana Hotel Group, stated "We are very proud to acknowledge the worldwide recognition of the Pestana brand. These three awards reflect the differentiating features and the special attributes of each of our winning hotels: the consolidation and strengthening of the Pestana Porto Santo in Europe; the recognition of Pestana Palace's excellence in its luxury segment; and the innovative and successful nature of the Pestana CR7 brand, which has received this award with but only one year of operation".
