Nov. 6, 2012, London – Spice Island Beach Resort (http://www.SpiceIslandBeachResort.com) scored yet another “Gold” in London for Grenada – the luxury resort’s seventh consecutive Virgin Holidays’ award as the #1 property in the tour operator’s exclusive worldwide Platinum Collection. Owner and managing director Sir Royston O. Hopkin KCMG accepted the prestigious honor at Virgin Holidays’ awards presentation, recognizing hotels and airlines worldwide at World Travel Market 2012.

The Virgin Holidays Platinum Collection had two gold awards this year. The Encore, Las Vegas was the other recipient and Spice Island Beach Resort received a perfect 100% score on the tour operator’s customer service questionnaires, earning them the top spot. The One & Only Royal Marage, Dubai and The London Hotel, New York, were awarded “Silver” and “Bronze” distinction, respectively.

Sir Royston expressed great pride in his dedicated employees and visionary management team, led by General Manager Brian Hardy. “It’s their tireless contributions to guest satisfaction which deserve the credit,” he said

“Achieving 100% customer satisfaction is a team effort. Each highly motivated employee plays a key role, from our reservations specialists to our food & beverage and culinary team, while our gardeners, housekeeping and maintenance employees ensure our state-of-the-art facilities and amenities are presented in their most immaculate condition,” said Sir Royston. “This award is shared proudly by all of us!”
