Mexico's One&Only Palmilla and One&Only Ocean Club in The Bahamas Rank




Mexico's One&Only Palmilla and One&Only Ocean Club in The Bahamas Rank The Best in The World with Readers in the 20th Annual Survey




New York, NY (October 11, 2007) - One&Only Palmilla and One&Only Ocean Club  have earned the top spot as the number one resorts in all of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean in Condé Nast Traveler's 2007 Annual Readers' Choice Awards. One&Only Palmilla ranked #1 Mexico Resort with a score of 95.9  and One&Only gained the top seed in Atlantic Ocean Resorts with a score of 90.6. Both properties will be featured in their respective categories in the magazine's November 2007 issue.


One&Only Palmilla's ranking edged above resorts in Cancun and Riviera Maya. The resort has long been a favorite retreat for Hollywood celebrities and savvy travelers alike since it originally opened in 1956; it reopened in 2004 after an extensive, year-long $100 Million rebuilding and expansion.


One&Only Ocean Club on Paradise Island in The Bahamas has long been known for its timeless elegance, absolute privacy and exceptional service, making it a treasured hideaway to luxury seeking guests. The resort was ranked above other properties in The Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos. 


The Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards, one of the highest distinctions in the travel industry, encompass the opinions of approximately 20,000 dedicated Condé Nast Traveler readers, who voted on islands, cities, resorts, hotels, airlines, rental cars and cruise lines around the world to affirm the best-of-the-best in travel. This year's awards were bestowed in an all-star ceremony on October 10th at The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York City, hosted by Editor-in-Chief Klara Glowczewska. 


Edward Steiner, Senior Vice President, Latin America and the Caribbean, One&Only Resorts, accepted the award on behalf of both resorts, commenting, "We are honored that our efforts to offer guests the most memorable and luxurious experiences has allowed One&Only Palmilla and One&Only Ocean Club to be recognized as the top resorts in all of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, by the discerning readers of Condé Nast Traveler."


Readers of Condé Nast Traveler and many other distinguished travelers who have experienced One&Only Palmilla and One&Only Ocean Club in 2007 have been able to enjoy vacation experiences that is unlike any other.  From the custom-made Hummers that greet guests upon arrival at the airport to personal butlers who will unpack and attend to guests' every need, One&Only Resorts has truly established itself as a leader in the luxury market.
