Royal Resorts received fantastic news late last week from the international GNEX Conference held in Beverly Hills from February 4 to 6, 2013. Our latest development, Grand Residences by Royal Resorts® picked up two Perspective Magazine awards: Best Fractional Resort in Latin America and Best Fractional Resort Worldwide, beating a field of top competitors.
Organized by Perspective Magazine, the annual GNEX Conference (Global Networking Expo) brings together leaders from the fields of vacation ownership, real estate and the hospitality industry and its prestigious awards honor outstanding properties or individuals. Royal Resorts is extremely proud as these awards put Grand Residences well and truly on the world stage, showcasing its beautiful beach setting, the luxury and size of the 123 ocean-view residences and the stellar array of amenities, benefits and experiences that will be offered to owners.
These awards follow previous accolades for Grand Residences, including the property’s affiliation with The Leading Hotels of the World® in 2011. Founded in 1928 and with its headquarters in New York, The Leading Hotels of the World is the largest luxury hospitality collection of its kind, representing more than 450 of the world’s finest hotels, resorts and spas in 80 countries. To be considered for affiliation, applicants must meet the most exacting standards of luxury, service and hospitality and provide an unparalleled vacation experience.
In 2012, Grand Residences by Royal Resorts received further praise from Dr. Richard Ragatz, a highly respected feasibility analyst and market researcher in the real estate industry. He said, “I have seen the vast majority of fractional projects throughout North America and it’s hard to think of other projects that surpass the quality, the size and the amenities at Grand Residences, it is extremely impressive!”
Building began at Grand Residences in May 2012 and the first phase is slated for completion by the end of 2013. Nestled on a magnificent beach immediately to the south of the fishing village of Puerto Morelos, this luxury residential community will offer owners the chance to discover the traditional ambiance, tranquility and attractions of the Mexican Caribbean with family and friends, while enjoying a host of creature comforts and signature hospitality. The upscale shopping, dining, golf and nightlife of Cancún and Playa del Carmen are also just a short drive away.
