The awards were announced at the World Travel Awards Grand Final Gala Ceremony at CuisinArt Golf Resort and Spa in Anguilla on 6 December 2014, by host Vivica A. Fox. Jamaica was also the winner of the award for the ‘World’s Leading Heritage Project for the Port of Falmouth’.
A further two awards recognised two of Jamaica’s premier resorts: Fleming Villa at GoldenEye Resort was named the ‘World’s Leading Villa’ and Round Hill Hotel & Villas collected the award for the ‘World’s Leading Villa Resort.’
Elizabeth Fox, Regional Director UK/Northern Europe for the Jamaica Tourist Board, said: “The World Travel Awards is both prestigious and sought after, so we are extremely proud of Jamaica’s outstanding achievements at this year’s Gala Ceremony. These awards reflect the extensive offering that Jamaica has to offer travellers in search of every type of holiday, from honeymoons to cruises to luxury getaways. Additionally, with the opening of the brand new Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall this month, we will offer even more choices to those travellers in search of a luxury holiday.”
