By admin | | Posted in: Pine Cliffs

For the sixth year, the Pine Cliffs Resort has been named by the World Travel Awards as Portugal’s Leading Family Resort. This award-winning luxury lifestyle resort has dominated the Portuguese travel scene since it opened in 1992, and is recognized across the world for its five-star accommodation, golden beaches and top-of-the-line leisure and sport facilities. The World Travel Awards are widely regarded as a beacon of quality, and are considered to be one of the most important and highly esteemed honours in the resort industry. Every year gala ceremonies are held regionally across the globe, from the Middle East, Africa, South and Central America, North America and the Caribbean, Asia, Australasia and Europe, with the regional winners competing in the world grand final. The 2015 European gala was held on 5th September in Sardinia, Italy.

Regarding the Pine Cliffs Resort’s success, James Munro, the resort’s general manager, stated, “We are honoured to have been named as Portugal’s Leading Family Resort once again by the World Travel Awards, which are such important awards for the tourism industry worldwide. We pride ourselves on the facilities and our unique lifestyle experience offering, ensuring that family members of all ages enjoy their time at Pine Cliffs. Our friendly team provides the finest level of hospitality for all guests and receiving an award like this provides the perfect recognition for their hard work.”

Because The Pine Cliffs Resort won the regional World Travel Award, it will then compete for the World Travel Awards Grand Final, which will be held later in the year in El Jadida, Morocco.
