Discovery Shores Boracay Wins World Luxury Island Resort Award

The highly esteemed 5 star luxury island resort in Boracay bags two prestigious awards at the recent World Luxury Hotel Awards

The Philippines’ award-winning Discovery Shores Boracay of The Discovery Leisure Company earns another feather in their cap by winning the World Luxury Hotel Awards 2015 as Country Winner in two categories: Luxury Island Resort and Luxury Wedding Destination, at the ninth annual gala ceremony held at the Harbour Grand Hong Kong.

Regarded as the highest accolade that a property can receive within the global luxury hotel industry, The World Luxury Hotel Awards is the pinnacle of achievement for luxury hotels the world over.

Once a hotel is nominated, evaluations are done by a selected global panel of consultants situated among 144 countries, who arrange a mystery visit on the property to ensure service excellence.

Among over 1,000 hotels nominated from 145 countries, the luxury resort in Boracay won the votes of international tour operators, travel agents, and hotel guests.

Upon receiving the coveted trophy for the two categories, an elated Erwin Lopez, Hotel Manager of Discovery Shores Boracay, said “If it weren’t for the sheer passion of my colleagues to delight each and every one of our guests, we wouldn’t have gone this far.” He added: “Together, we’ve made the Philippines proud.”

A member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts’ Lifestyle Collection, Discovery Shores Boracay is known for its inspiring architecture, exquisite coastal cuisine and legendary service.

The 87-suite beachfront property features the highly acclaimed Terra Wellness Spa and well-loved restaurant Sands and Indigo. It is also the preferred choice of brides-to-be for remarkable destination weddings, set in the world-famous Station 1 of White Beach in Boracay.
