Graham E. Cooke, President & Founder of WTA, believes the selection of a host venue is an integral part of the success of the world’s most influential travel awards programme. “I am delighted to bring our event to Sandals Grand Antigua Resort & Spa for what promises to be an exciting and competitive ceremony. This destination and resort in particular continues to attract visitors from all over the world, constantly showing innovation and outstanding levels of service,” said Cooke.

Sandals Grande Antigua Resort & Spa continues to be a market leader despite fierce competition in the region’s Resort & Spa arena. This is an award-winning resort that combines sophistication with comfort and glamour with romance. It provides all the luxuries guests could imagine, from the finest gourmet dining with flavours that span the globe, to unlimited land and watersports for exploring paradise first-hand. Set along Antigua's most famous beach, Dickenson Bay, this exceptional resort touts two extraordinary Luxury Included® Vacations in one — the Caribbean Grove, offering authentic and tropical tranquillity with its lush green canopy, low-lying villas and diverse flora, and the all-suite Mediterranean Village, boasting chic sophistication, open landscape and grand piazzas. Lavish accommodations abound including the resort’s famed plunge pool villas and the one-of-a-kind Rondoval suites. Known as the ultimate honeymoon oasis, Sandals Grande Antigua captures the island’s remarkable beauty while gracefully infusing romance and luxury into every experience.

“The Caribbean & North American Gala celebrates the success of the travel industry, and Sandals Resorts is honoured to host this year’s event at our beautiful resort in Antigua,” said Gordon “Butch” Stewart, Chairman of Sandals Resorts International.

World Travel Awards is celebrating a landmark 20th year as the Oscars of the Travel Industry. The ceremonies are widely regarded as the best networking opportunities in the travel industry, attended by government and industry leaders, luminaries and international media. For the Caribbean awards, travel, tourism and hospitality organisations from 22 countries will compete for these prestigious top accolades culminating in a glittering Gala Presentation Ceremony in Antigua.

The North American region categories will see new winners across three new Awards which seek to identify and find the leaders across several categories. These will include Awards for “Leading Hotel Suite”, “Leading Family Resort” and “Leading Meetings & Conference destination”.
