Las Colinas Golf & Country was crowned ‘Europe’s Leading Villa Resort’ at the prestigious World Travel Awards ceremony over the weekend, whilst it also scooped ‘Spain’s Leading Villa Resort’ accolade for a third consecutive year.
Voted for by the public, the coveted World Travel Awards look to support, promote and develop the global travel & tourism industry by recognising and rewarding excellence.
The ‘Leading Villa Resort’ categories seek to reward resorts that offer the perfect combination of world-class facilities, as well as leisure attractions and services that complement the state-of-the-art property on site.
Speaking after the lavish ceremony at the Russian Museum of Ethnography in St Petersburg, Cristóbal Guerrero, general manager at Las Colinas Golf & Country Club commented: “We are immensely proud to be recognised for both of these awards – and in particular the European accolade, which shows just how far our property offering has come in recent years.
“So much credit must go to all of the staff at Las Colinas, as well as our management company Gmp, who work tirelessly to maintain our high standards and improve the level of architecture at the resort every year,” added Guerrero.
The resort, located south of Alicante in 330 hectares of Mediterranean woodland, has become a leader in attracting international leisure visitors and second-home owners to the region since its opening in 2010.
A host of impressive modern properties are currently for sale at Las Colinas Golf & Country Club, including two, three and four-bedroom apartments and villas with large gardens or terraces, parking and green areas with communal or private swimming pools. Apartments start at €245,000, with villas starting at €490,000.
The Troon-managed resort also boasts Spain’s Best Golf Course (World Golf Awards 2015, 2016), and is one of Continental Europe’s Top 100 courses.
