The World Travel Awards took place towards the end of last year, where Portugal was named ‘World’s Leading Destination’ for the third year in a row. An excellent achievement with Portugal racking up a total of 12 awards! Portugal’s Secretary of State, Rita Marques stated that this is a result of a tourism strategy that was created several years ago.
There was great news for Portugal’s capital, Lisbon, that was awarded World’s Leading City Break a great achievement when put up against cities such as Barcelona, Paris and Venice! One of the City’s hotels, Olissippo Lapa Palace Hotel was also named the World’s Leading Classic Hotel.
It was also a fantastic night for Villa Bam’s home, Dunas Douradas in the Algarve as it was named the World’s Leading Golf and Villa Resort. An excellent spot for all things golf and villa luxury, close by to the beach Praia Do Garrao, considered to be one of the finest in the Algarve.
These accolades show that Portugal is well and truly solidifying itself as a holiday destination for all, from casual holiday making to golfing trips to city breaks, there’s something for everyone. With the continuous development in regions like Almancil for both property buyers and holidaymakers, Portugal’s tourism industry is likely to carry on climbing.
