It was a magical night for Madeira on the 8th of June when the island played host to the prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA). Not only was the Belmond Reid’s Hotel, the perfect setting for the award ceremony, the islands hotels were equally magnificent and highly praised. Winning the ‘Europe’s Leading Island Destination’ for a consecutive year highlights the hard work, dedication and commitment made to ensure that the Madeira’s tourism sector is one of the best in Europe. However, it wasn’t just Madeira who celebrated during the ceremony.
The island’s hotels were equally honoured, with the Hotel Quinta Bela Vista winning two titles, Europe’s Leading Boutique Hotel and Portugal’s Leading Boutique Hotel. The Galomar Resort Hotel won for the third year running the Leading Green Resort title, while the Pestana CR7 Hotel took Portugal’s Leading Boutique and Portugal’s Leading Lifestyle Hotel awards. The event’s host, The Belmond Reid’s Hotel, was presented with the award for Europe’s Leading Island Hotel and Portugal Leading Hotel, and this year Porto Santo was recognised, as the Pestana Porto Santo Hotel was awarded with the title of Europe’s Leading All-Inclusive Resort.
