Terranea Resort Receives Top Travel Industry Honors for 2013

Los Angeles’ Leading Coastal Resort Recognized In Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List and Travel + Leisure’s 500 List

Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. (Jan. 29, 2013) – Terranea Resort is starting off 2013 with several prestigious travel industry accolades. The luxury property has been recognized as a leading resort in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2013 Gold List and also made its debut on Travel + Leisure’s eleventh annual T+L 500 List of best hotels in the world.
Located along the Southern California Coast, on the stunning Palos Verdes Peninsula, Terranea Resort boasts luxury accommodations that range from hotel suites to spacious villas, an acclaimed dining scene, award-winning golf course and spa, innovative Pointe Discovery activity center and adventure concierge. The resort continues to receive top industry awards for its world-class experiences, superior service and first-rate amenities.
The Gold List is a representation of the results from Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Readers’ Choice survey where readers are invited to rate the world's most distinguished cities and islands, hotels and resorts, cruise ships and airlines. This year the annual awards received a record number of votes, with participation from more than 46,000 readers and only 370 hotels, resorts and cruise lines rated above 90 out of 100 points, Terranea being one of them. Only a total of 195 properties in the United States earned a place on the 2013 Gold List.
“We’re honored to be recognized by these leading travel publications and their sophisticated readers,” said Executive Vice President and Managing Director Terri A. Haack. “Being included in the highly coveted Gold List and T+L 500 List is an honor and lets us know we are succeeding in our continued commitment to provide guests with memorable experiences and the world-class service Terranea has become known for.”
There are 79 properties, including Terranea Resort, that are making their debut on the annual T+L 500 list of best hotels in the world this year. The 2013 T+L 500 guide, featured in the January issue of Travel + Leisure®, is a compendium of the highest-ranking hotels and resorts worldwide, based on data collected in the Travel + Leisure 2012 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey. The list also highlights properties that readers ranked high in specific areas, such as food, romance, and location.
