Baltimore, MD; Washington, DC; Richmond-
Petersburg, VA; Boston, MA; New York, NY (PRWEB) November 07, 2012 -- Bluefields Bay Villas, an all-inclusive luxury resort located in the small fishing and farming village of Bluefields Bay, Jamaica, is the recipient of Travel Weekly’s 2012 Magellan Award for excellence in hospitality.
They were selected from a pool of over 550 by a panel of industry leading travel professionals including major news personalities, successful CEOs and acclaimed authors.
“We are incredibly honored to bring back such an esteemed award to Bluefields. We are so proud of every member of our staff and community that made this possible. The award really belongs to them for taking such great care of the best place to stay in Jamaica!” says Bluefields Bay Villas owner, Houston Moncure.
Asked why he thought Bluefields Bay Villas won the award, Houston replies, “It all spurs from our understanding of all-inclusive. Most resorts skimp on their all-inclusive packages and try to limit their guests. But, we take the term very literally—if there’s something guests want, we get it for them. Period. That’s all-inclusive.”
“And our hospitality extends beyond the doors of your private villa. We are close with our community. We hire locally. We donate to local schools. We promote local preservation movements. We are involved. In return our neighbors welcome all of our guests with open arms. Tourist isn’t a term people use here. Our visitors aren’t tourists—they’re guests. Our whole community treats them as such.”
Travel Weekly’s Magellan Awards are presented each year to leaders in the travel industry that continue to push the limits in service and experience. All of the winners, including Bluefields Bay Villas, can be seen in September’s issue of Travel Weekly.
The hospitality award coincides with Bluefields Bay Villas 30th anniversary, which they celebrated in October with a promotion offering 30% off villa rates.
