LORETO, Baja California Sur, Mexico (Oct. 10, 2018) — Villa del Palmar Beach Resort and Spa at The Islands of Loreto has been recognized for excellence in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2018 Readers’ Choice Awards. The luxury destination resort, which overlooks the Sea of Cortez on the eastern coast of the Baja Peninsula, has been selected as one of the “Top Resorts in Western Mexico.”

“We are humbled to win this honor, especially because it comes from the publication’s readers who are personally experiencing all we have to offer here,” said Owen Perry, developer. “We take pride in the great team we have assembled at the resort, and we all share in the same mission to ensure our guests enjoy a first-class stay from beginning to end.”

Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is a Villa Group property that features 4,447 acres of unspoiled beauty along one of the most breathtaking spots in the hemisphere, including stunning views of the Sea of Cortez and Sierra de la Giganta Mountain Range. The resort features TPC Danzante Bay, three outstanding restaurants, five swimming pools, Sabila Spa, tennis courts, miles of hiking trails, world-class sport fishing, and quiet, unspoiled beaches.

“The Islands of Loreto are unique in their unparalleled natural beauty, giving guests the sense they are pioneers in an uncharted, untouched world rarely experienced at other Mexican resorts,” added developer Luz Maria Torres.

Resort guests conveniently fly into Loreto International Airport (LTO), which is accessible from Los Angeles (LAX) via a two-hour flight from Alaska Airlines; from Tijuana (TIJ), San Jose del Cabos (SJD), and Guadalajara (GDL) on Calafia Airlines; and Calgary, Alberta, Canada (YYC) on WestJet Airlines.

The resort also recently was named “Mexico & Central America’s Leading Resort for 2018” by the World Travel Awards, which for the past 25 years has acknowledged, rewarded and celebrated excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry.
