Marc Holland, founder of Sexy, Inc., said,“Over 500 properties were evaluated and winners were chosen according tostyle, architecture, ambiance, service, mood, and emotion.” Holland added,“Defining ‘sexy’ was the fun part of the job. Sexy has nothing to do withprice, size, or reputation, but rather how all those elements come togetherto create a sensual experience that evokes a feeling of true transcendencefor the guest.”
“Sexy can’t be faked,” says Holland, “A hotel or resort is either sexy orit’s not. There are no in-betweens. Sexy could be a desert mega-resort, asleek New York City business hotel, a Malaysian seaside resort, or a safaricamp.”
