Penina Hotel & Golf Resort Nominated for World Travel Award
5 April 2016
Press Release: WTA Nomination for Portugal’s Leading Resort
Penina Hotel & Golf Resort has just been nominated as Portugal’s Leading Resort at the World Travel Awards. The nomination recognises the hotel’s exceptional luxury, market leading amenities and the highest possible standards of five-star customer service and satisfaction.
Since 2004, the hotel has received an impressive 16 nominations from the World Travel Awards, winning four in the categories of Portugal’s Leading Golf Resort and Portugal’s Leading Resort. This year, however, the nomination is extra special as the hotel is currently celebrating its 50th year at the forefront of luxury travel in the Algarve.
Not only was Penina the first resort of its kind in the Algarve, but it also constructed Portugal’s first ever 18-hole championship golf course, the Sir Henry Cotton… which was conceived, designed and built by the famous English golfer himself and paved the way for golf in the Algarve.
Over the years, Penina has stayed true to its golfing roots, playing host to a record ten Portuguese Opens; but has also blossomed into one of Europe’s finest family hotels, boasting 6 restaurants and bars, the largest outdoor swimming pool in the Algarve, a hugely popular kids club… and an exceptional beachfront restaurant just minutes away.
The traditions, outstanding luxury and world-leading service that began 50-years-ago continue at the Penina Hotel & Golf Course today… and if you would like to vote for the hotel in the latest World Travel Awards:
