Our 2011 Readers’ Choice Awards have been announced, marking the awards’ ninth anniversary! Worldwide, more votes were cast by spa-goers this year, making it the most international and diverse group of spas in the history of the awards, in addition to beingthe most complete and useful peer-to-peer recommendation in the global spa market.
“SpaFinder was the first to offer people the opportunity to vote for their favorite spas in diverse categories, from cuisine to hiking to golf to romance, providing a fast, accessible way for spa-goers to make decisions based on what’s important to them,” said SpaFinder President Susie Ellis. “They have become a valuable consumer guide, as well as an industry accolade.”
The Awards were based on votes submitted by SpaFinder’s global consumer websites, including SpaFinder.com and by readers of SpaFinder publications. Readers were asked to only vote for spas they have visited in the last three years.
In addition to the Crystal and Country/Region Awards, readers voted for their favorite spas in 32 different “Best For” categories, including Favorite Day Spa – check out the winners below:
