Within travel, the luxury sector has grown tremendously, with so many destinations to choose from. Due to this, it can be hard for a particular destination to stand out and attract new guests from all over the globe.
However, the Algarve has really become a big hitter in the luxury travel space, especially for villa rentals. So, it was a great honour for SandyBlue to be nominated for ‘Best Luxury Holiday Home Lettings & Management in Portugal’ at the Luxury Lifestyle Awards.
The excitement did not end there – SandyBlue was officially announced as the category winner on April 14. This recognition is important for our team and the Algarve region as a whole. We love this region and want to see it thrive as one of the top destinations in the world.
The Luxury Lifestyle Awards
Luxury Lifestyle Awards is an international award ceremony providing luxury brands with recognition for their overall excellence.
The objective of these awards is to recognise excellence across the whole range of property industry sectors and maintain the highest standards in the industry worldwide.
Operating in many countries, we knew the competition was high. In Portugal especially, there are so many companies dedicated to the guest experience and owner-partner rental income. The committee said: “SandyBlue has been distinguished as one of the best in this market. Your impeccable reputation and professional performance have been recognised and acknowledged.”
Contributing to the Algarve’s ongoing villa rental success
This recognition is a huge accomplishment – however, it does not mean the hard work stops here. In fact, it is an even bigger reason to continuously improve and adapt in a competitive market. We want the Algarve to remain one of the go-to destinations for tourists not just in the summer, but in off-peak seasons too.
After all, there is so much to see and do. With an increased focus on marketing and lifestyle guides, this activity helps show guests exactly what is in store for them when visiting the Algarve. With increased interest from the USA and Canadian markets in particular, the Algarve’s reputation is more widespread than ever before.
In turn, our owner partners see huge interest in their properties throughout the year. More people consider holidays outside of the peak summer months, be it an early spring holiday or to escape the colder months for a milder experience in Portugal. This is great news for owners, who can rest assured that a healthy bookings calendar is guaranteed.
The award recognition is a great reflection of how the Algarve, and the SandyBlue team, have grown in the last few years. Now, we believe the only way is up for the Algarve as one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world.
