Algarve Nominated For 17 Awards From Publituris Portugal Travel Awards

"portugal travel awards 2013"The Algarve region has come out as one of the main contenders for awards at the upcoming Publituris Portugal Travel Awards 2013.

In total the Algarve region, known throughout Portugal as perhaps the premier destination for tourists within Portugal thanks to the thousands of foreign and national visitors who come to the area every year, has been nominated for 17 awards from the Publituris Portugal Travel Awards.

The main award that everyone is looking to win is the one for the best region for tourism within Portugal and the Algarve is up for this award as well as 16 others in different categories.

When it came to the nominations for the best resort hotel in Portugal the Algarve dominated the category with nominations for Cascade Resort in Lagos, Conrad Algarve in Vale do Lobo, Martinal Beach resort and Hotel in Sagres, the Sheraton Pine Cliffs in Albufeira, Vila Vita Parc in Lagoa and the Valalara Thalassa Resort all up for the prestigious award.

Not surprisingly the Algarve also featured heavily in the nominations for best golf course in Portugal with Onyria Palmares, the San Lorenzo golf course, Monte Rei and Oceanico Old Course all being put up for the award that traditionally comes back down to the Algarve thanks to the region having such a huge array of fantastic championship courses located up and down the region.

When it came down to the most stylish of hotels the Memmo Baleeira has been nominated in the best hotel design while the Vila Joya hotel and the Bela Vista Hotel and Spa are both nominated for the best boutique hotel in Portugal and both stand a very good chance of winning if previous awards are to be considered.

Now all that is left is for the voting to begin to see which of the Algarve nominees will come out triumphant and the public are able to enter into the first phase of the voting with chance to cast a vote online.

The public online voting for the Publituris Portugal Travel Awards will open on August 1 and from this the top three in each category will be finalised and passed on to the judges who will then determine the final winners in each section of the awards.

This is the 10th edition of the Publituris Portugal Travel Awards and the winners will be finally announced on September 19 in a ceremony to be held at Montes Claros in Monsanto.
