Latin America Rio has always been hot but, in 2008, the Cidade Maravilhosa (Marvellous City) positively sizzled when WTA staged our inaugural Latin America Ceremony at the InterContinental Hotel Rio de Janeiro, in partnership with ABAV 2008: the America’s largest business industry exhibition which took place immediately after the ceremony.

The all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya on Mexico's breathtakingly beautiful Caribbean Coast will host WTA’s much anticipated Latin America Ceremony 2017.

In 2013 the ancient city of Lima, capital of Peru, put on an equally memorable show fronted by Veronica Ayllon – one of Peru’s most experienced and best loved presenters. Ecuador’s capital, Quito rose to the challenge in both 2014 and 2016, while Bogota took everyone’s breath away – literally (the Colombian capital is situated at some 2,600m) in 2015.

There’s a brick road inside where people used to unload cars. This is where you’ll check in. In the summer, you’ll take a dip in water surrounded by mountains.

In the winter, you’ll gather by the fire under the stars. The rooms, of which few are alike, have fireplaces and loed beds. Downstairs, you’ll come together for an alpine dinner prepared just for you by the house chefs. At night, you’ll rally your friends around the bar and watch the sun sink behind the peaks in the distance. On your way home you'll wonder in silence if you should tell others or just keep this secret to yourself. www.scribnerslodge.com

Europe WTA held our 1999 event at landmark London hotel, The Dorchester. It was the first time that a European city had hosted the awards. The British capital took on hosting duties again in 2005 (the Royal Opera House), 2009 and 2010 (both at Grosvenor House).

Saint Petersburg Committee for Tourism Development will welcome World Travel Awards to Russia for the first time in 2017, with the Europe Gala Ceremony 2017 set to take place in the capital of culture.

Other past host venus include The Cornelia Diamond Golf Resort & Spa in Antalya (Turkey) who staged a spectacular show in 2011, and again in 2013. Elsewhere the Conrad Algarve served as a spectacular setting for the European leg of the 2012 Grand Tour while the Divani Apollon Palace & Thalasso – a luxury beach resort in Athens – played host in 2014. Most recently, WTA has hosted Europe Gala Ceremonies at the world renowned Forte Village Resort in Sardinia.

Underneath the courtyard is an extensive Frantoglio (Olive Press), still in its original condition. Not having been touched for over one hundred years, Trapana has now been meticulously restored with all the modern luxuries over a two year period. It now consists of six gardens containing nineteen types of fruits and nuts, predominately mandarins, oranges and Lemons. Each garden space has been designed to offer differing areas of relaxation from the Yoga garden to the Games garden you will find random hammocks in quiet sunny nooks which will transport you as far as possible from the normal hustle and bustle of life. www.trapana.com/en/

Jane-Therese Mulry

the Saxon hotel The past eighteen months has been a period of great success and growth for the Saxon Hotel, Villas and Spa, consistently voted The World’s Leading Boutique Hotel by the World Travel Awards. Our offering has been increased and enhanced with the opening of Luke Dale-Roberts X Saxon, the refurbishment of the Spa and the joining of key team members. Aer a highly successful pop-up at the hotel early in 2016, Luke Dale-Roberts X Saxon opened its doors in a newly refurbished seing at the Johannesburg property in May, offering the food

scene in the city a much needed creative and innovative experiential dining journey. The restaurant, under the helm of Chef Candice Philip was, and remains, a great success – being awarded the World Travel Award for Leading Hotel Fine Dining Restaurant in 2016. Continuing in this gastronomical direction, the Saxon welcomed two stellar new team members in September when Executive Chef Jane-Therese Mulry joined from Australia and Executive Pastry Chef Nathan Jacobs made the move from Cape Town to Johannesburg. Australian-born and


S o U t h  a F R i C a

l, VillaS and Spa educated, Chef Jane-Therese has travelled extensively, gaining invaluable experience working for some of the best hotels and restaurants around the world; thriving on developing and mentoring young talent in the luxury sector. As a chef, Jane-Therese’s passion is produce and she loves everything fresh, growing her own where possible. Her food represents her culinary soul and should always be fresh, locally grown and produced, healthy, environmentally sustainable

and ethically correct, innovative yet simple, uniquely prepared and imaginatively presented. In this she found a kindred spirit in Chef Nathan Jacobs, with his passion for creating the most imaginative pastry items, drawing on his classical training but always bringing in a South African sensibility. Both these chefs bring an invaluable sense of growth and excitement to the Saxon culinary offering.

Each treatment room is ionised by a locally handcraed Himalayan salt and recycled glass chandelier created by a local conservation project based in a local South African township. As well as making a striking centrepiece, the

Rwanda has long been seen as the premiere destination for gorilla tracking, but today more than ever there are dozens of reasons to extend your stay, starting with the 13 species of primates and East Africa’s only canopy walk, all to be found in the dense rainforests of Nyungwe Forest National Park. Still, it’s hardly a surprise that Rwanda developed its reputation for Gorillas—experts estimate that there are only 780 mountain gorillas still in existence anywhere on earth, and one third of these majestic creatures can be found in Volcanoes National Park alone. With the recent reintroduction of lions to Akagera National Park in the east, Rwanda has truly come into its own as a full-fledged safari destination, and to top it all off, it’s not even a day’s drive between each of these world-class attractions.

PEARL VALLE HOTEL

The vast number of wine estates located in the Cape is no doubt one of the region’s main drawcards. It does, however, additionally offer a plethora of other activities and destinations that make the Winelands an ideal holiday destination. And, it is here – centrally located in this magnificent area – that Pearl Valley Hotel by Mantis has opened its doors. Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek are all situated under half an hour’s drive away from the hotel and the city of Cape Town is similarly only a 45-minute drive from the hotel.

In nearby regions, guests are able to enjoy everything from visiting art galleries and markets in quaint Oak-lined streets or indulging in fine dining at internationally celebrated restaurants to spoing wildlife on a game drive or venturing up Table Mountain. While there is much to explore in and just beyond the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley, the estate on which the hotel is located – Val de Vie – also provides guests with a wide selection of amenities.

The reasons for this being considered a “superestate” quickly become apparent to guests. Its world-class polo fields and award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course have drawn interest from locals and internationals alike, including a long list of celebrities. Guests can watch thrilling polo games during season (from October to April) or treat themselves to a round of golf.

They can, alternatively, book a horse riding session to explore the scenery from a different vantage point or treat their taste buds to an excellent selection of wines available for tasting – by appointment, as groups of 10 or more guests [see editor’s note] – at the L’Huguenot Venue & Vinoteque on the estate. Of course, the sensory experience doesn’t stop at wine tasting. Guests are invited to enjoy lunches or dinners at The Valley Restaurant & Bar and are served breakfast daily in the hotel’s club room.

Furthermore, guests are able to stay fit and active during their visit as they are provided with access to a gym which houses Technogym equipment. During summer months, guests can cool off at the hotel’s private plunge pool or at the swimming pool at the Clubhouse where they can enjoy mingling with residents of the estate. All activities can be carried out with peace of mind as Val de Vie’s state-of-the-art security makes for a safe environment and a family-friendly destination. Children of all ages are welcome.
