At a glittering event held at the Sandals Resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, for the
fourth consecutive year, Coco Reef Resort & Spa – Tobago received the 2011 World
Travel Award  for the “Caribbean’s Leading Hotel.” Bermudian hotelier and owner of Coco Reef Resorts Ltd., John Jefferis accepted the award.  Coco Reef Resorts also owns sister property Coco Reef in Bermuda.

The awards, described by The Wall Street Journal as the “Oscars” of the global travel and tourism industry, revealed who are the “best of the best” in the world according to 183,000 travel, tourism and hospitality professionals across the globe.

Celebrity entrepreneur Graham Cooke, President and Founder of the World Travel Awards, said: “The past year has brought significant challenges to the travel industry.
Increased tax on long haul travel, a major economic turndown and a significant
reduction in tourism spending have all impacted travel and tourism worldwide.
Today’s winners have not only been recognised as the best in their region, but
they have proven themselves to be the best in the world and the number one
choice of travel professionals and consumers alike. They have remained focused
on their long-term objectives and continue to deliver above and beyond the call
of duty, setting an example that is inspirational to all involved in the global
travel and tourism industry.”

“I am extremely proud to have received this prestigious award again on behalf of
Coco Reef – Tobago,” said Mr. Jefferis, “It is a testimony to the dedicated
professionals  who never forget that providing exemplary service to all of our guests is what sets Coco Reef apart from other multinational chains..”

Mr. Jefferis continued: “Although we recently completed a $9 million dollar upgrade
of the property with a breathtaking new beach restaurant, our guests continue
to tell us that their most memorable experience is our friendly, courteous and
professional staff.”

Mr. Jefferis developed Coco Reef – Tobago 14 years ago. Like his hotel in Bermuda,
Coco Reef – Tobago features a dramatic lobby and unique architecture that reflect the local surroundings. The exquisite $2,000 per night Sunset Villa at Coco Reef – Tobago, with its marble bathrooms and 24-karat gold fittings, has been frequented by innumerable celebrities including Sylvester Stallone, Rod Stewart and Diana Ross. The Tobago property, which has 150 rooms and suites, is situated on its own private beach surrounded by 10 acres of beautifully manicured tropical gardens.

Following in its big sister’s footsteps, Coco Reef – Bermuda opened in 2004 and consists of 70 rooms situated on a spectacular beachfront location. The hotel features
an award winning atrium lobby, two restaurants with fabulous views and exotic
private dining facilities.
