Capella Ixtapa named “Mexico’s Leading Resort”

Monday 1 November 2010.  Capella Ixtapa has been recognized as “Mexico’s Leading Resort” by the prestigious World Travel Awards organization beating off highly respected competition from other Mexican resorts.

This stunning cliff side property overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Ixtapa, Mexico landed this coveted award less than two years after opening its doors. It adds this recognition to accolades it received last year that included Condé Nast Traveler’s Hot List and inclusion in Robb Report’s “Best of the Best”.

The World Travel Awards are voted on by travel agents worldwide. This year’s competition, the 17th since its establishment, received nominations from over 5,000 organizations spanning 162 countries. www.worldtravelawards.com

General Manager, Julian Smaldoni declared, “ We were already very proud of our offering here in Ixtapa, but to be selected for this award is an endorsement of the exceptional service offered by each and every member of the resort’s team, the majority of whom come from this area. This is also a win for Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, which is , in our opinion, Mexico’s finest tourist destination and now, we are happy to say, home of “Mexico’s Leading Resort.”
