Pacific Resort Hotel Group (PRHG) is delighted to announce that Pacific Resort Aitutaki, Pacific Resort Rarotonga and Te Manava Luxury Villas & Spa have all been selected as regional stand out properties at this year’s World Boutique Hotel Awards.
The first and only of its kind, the World Boutique Hotel Awards scheme is exclusively dedicated to recognising unique excellence among the world’s best boutique resorts and hotels. These awards look to seek out and recognize the hidden gems around the world which retain their individuality through their small size and keen sense of style and culture.
The world renowned 5-star Pacific Resort Aitutaki has received a nomination in the ‘Romantic Retreat’ section, while the popular, family friendly, 4-star Pacific Resort Rarotonga picked up a nomination in the ‘Blissful Beach’ category. And finally, 5-star property, Te Manava Luxury Villas & Spa, received a nomination in the ‘Honeymoon Hideaway’ category, making this a perfect nomination trifecta for PRHG.
The elements that are taken into consideration when judging these categories are design and concept, dining, facilities, location, service and staff emotional connection and impact. “But what we are really looking for,” Boutique Hotel Awards states, “is the flair, character and feel of a place that make it unique.”
Nominated properties are taken through a demanding selection process that includes various interviews, on-site inspections from panel judges and a thorough examination from the selection committee.
“We are incredibly pleased with these nominations from the World Boutique Hotel Awards” states CEO Greg Stanaway. “PRHG has had a long and successful operating history in the Cook Islands in smaller upscale/luxury boutique properties and naturally it is our niche. We are honoured to be considered at the highest level in this market.”
The finalist of the World’s Best Boutique Hotel will be announced on the 7th of October, 2014 with the annual awards ceremony taking place in London later this year.
Following on from nominations at the World Travel Awards and 7 Star Luxury Awards, 2014 is shaping up to be another successful year for PRHG.
