Sandals Honored with 22 Star Diamond Awards

March 27, 2013 - Sandals Resorts - Private Villas by Sandals & Beaches

Sandals Resort International, has done it again! While in New York City last week, Chairman and Founder, Gordon “Butch” Stewart, and CEO, Adam Stewart, received a rewarding surprise of their own from The American Academy of Hospitality Sciences, when they were presented with a total of 22 Star Diamond Awards for the resort company’s continued excellence on a global level.

The International Star Diamond Award is one of the most prestigious emblems of achievement for the travel industry, and is awarded to elite recipients throughout the world. Nominations are routinely submitted by world travelers and industry professionals and refined by the Board of Trustees. All decisions of the Academy are based solely on whether the nominee demonstrates a commitment to excellence in luxury and service within its industry’s specific category and classification, including hospitality, attitude, quality and cleanliness.
