Leading Caribbean resort group is awarded multiple Silver and Gold Magellan Awards

Four Authentic Caribbean beachfront resorts in the Elite Island Resorts portfolio have won prestigious 2016 Magellan Awards from Travel Weekly. The awards recognize the best organizations and individuals in a broad range of travel industry sectors.

In the hospitality segment, two Elite Island Resorts properties earned Gold Magellan Awards, the highest award possible. St. James’s Club Morgan Bay in St. Lucia won in the Family Resort category, and The Club, Barbados Resort & Spa won in the Upscale Resort category. Also in the hospitality segment, Silver Magellan Awards were bestowed on two Antigua properties: The Verandah Resort & Spa in the Eco-Friendly “Green” category and St. James’s Club & Villas in the Beach Resort category.

“Since our inception, our top priority has been to create a collection of resorts that best exemplify the essence of the Caribbean experience, with each offering a unique charm for discerning travelers,” said Steven Heydt, President of Elite Island Resorts. “These awards indicate that our industry colleagues recognize the exceptional quality of our resort properties, and will reinforce our commitment to maintaining the high standards that keep our guests coming back.”

Winners are chosen by a unique panel of outstanding professionals in travel and media.
