TravelAge West “WAVE Awards” – Best Resort Spa in Mexico
On June 7, 2012 TravelAge West hosted over 230 travel suppliers and travel agents at its annual WAVE Awards Gala. Guests gathered at the Four Seasons, Beverly Hills for an evening of celebration and award presentations. Over 133 travel companies were honored across 49 award categories that spanned the cruise, tour operator, airline, hotel and resort, rail vacation and destination travel fields. The annual awards gave travel agents in Western U.S. the opportunity to recognize the outstanding qualities and services of their travel supplier partners.
We were thrilled to learn that Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita had been honored by winning in the category of Best Resort Spa in Mexico.
More than 4,500 travel agent professionals throughout the 14 Western states and readers of TravelAge West voted on the best-of-the-best from a list of Editor’s Pick award recipients that were chosen after careful review by TravelAge West Editor-in-Chief Kenneth Shapiro and the editorial team of TravelAge West. Review methods included product analysis, on-site visits, a survey of a select group of travel agents and online research.
“The WAVE Awards acknowledge companies that have consistently demonstrated excellence within the travel marketplace,” said Jack Grant, publisher of TravelAge West. “The awards celebrate the best of the best in travel as picked by travel agents who are true experts in the field.”
