World Travel Awards touches down at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya

World Travel Awards has touched down in the Mexican Riviera, ahead of the Latin America Ceremony 2017.

The prestigious event will take place this Saturday, September 9th, at the glittering, all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya, with hospitality leaders from across the region expected to attend to discover who among them has been voted the pinnacle of the travel industry.

Max Villegas - one of Mexico’s most versatile talents whose hosting credits include E! Entertainment Television and Estilo DF - will compere the event.

Speaking ahead of the event, WTA president Graham Cooke, said: “The Latin America Ceremony is always a highlight of the Grand Tour for World Travel Awards, and the team and I are excited to be bringing the event to the Mexican Riviera for the first time.

“We look forward to welcoming industry leaders and luminaries to the all-inclusive five-star Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya this Saturday, and I know it will be a night to remember.”

Located on Mexico’s breathtakingly beautiful Caribbean Coast, the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya consists of 687 rooms and suites in the family-friendly Hacienda section and 577 rooms and suites in the adult-only Heaven section, catering for families as well as adults seeking a child-free break.

The property also boasts a private white sand beach on its door-step, in addition to six swimming pools (two family pools and four adult only pools), endless dining options, a first-rate fitness centre and the Rock Spa - the largest in the Caribbean with 75 treatment rooms, hydrotherapy current pools and steam rooms.

Further afield, the delights of Mexico’s Riviera Maya - think Mayan ruins, world-class diving sites, tropical forests and eco parks - reward exploration.


“We are beyond excited to be hosting the World Travel Awards Latin America Ceremony for the very first time at Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya,” commented Frank Maduro, vice president of marketing for the AIC Hotel Group of which the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya is a part.

“It is a great honour and true pleasure to welcome the region’s best-of-the best in hospitality. With the World Travel Awards being a pinnacle in the travel industry and a benchmark of success, we’re thrilled to be a part of such a monumental event.”
