World class weekend accolade for island
The island won the accolade after a poll of readers of Global Traveler magazine.
The award was announced during the sixth annual Leisure Lifestyle Awards in Los Angeles.
Kevin Dallas, chief executive at the Bermuda Tourism Authority, said: “Success for Bermuda’s tourism industry is totally achievable when the Government, the Bermuda Tourism Authority and private sector stakeholders are working together collaboratively.
Mr Dallas said the award served as reminder that “tourism success is within our country’s grasp if we continue on the current course, focused on collaboration”.
He added: “It’s tremendously rewarding to see this recognition for the work we’re all doing out here.”
Jamahl Simmons, Minister of Economic Development and Tourism, said all Bermudians should feel proud of the prize.
Mr Simmons added: Providing award-winning hospitality is a team effort and involves frontline staff, management and service providers.
“Bermuda is honoured to receive this recognition from the readers of Global Traveler.”
Global Traveler magazine has 300,000 readers.
