Portugal regains the award for best destination in Europe.


Another memorable night at the annual European gala of the World Travel Awards 2022. The ceremony of the 29th edition of the well-known “Oscars” in the tourism sector”, took place last October 1st, at the new Hilton Mallorca Galatzo, on the island of Mallorca, in Spain. Portugal was undoubtedly one of the big winners of the night.

If in the previous edition, Portugal had already won 20 awards, this year, our country exceeded expectations. It has won 30 awards for national destinations and companies, having recovered the award for Best Destination in Europe, for the fifth time in the last six years.

It should be noted that Porto wins the award for Best City Destination, the Algarve is once again considered the Best Beach Destination and the Azores maintains the position of Best Adventure Tourism Destination in Europe.

The Lisbon capital received four awards: Best City Break Destination, Best Metropolitan Coastal Destination, Best Cruise Destination and Best Cruise Port. The Paiva Walkways, in Arouca, were crowned Best Tourist Attraction and Best Adventure Tourism Attraction, while the Dark Sky project, in Alqueva, renews the distinction of Responsible Tourism.

The Portuguese airline, TAP, is a great reference for Portuguese Tourism and was elected again as the Best Tourism Entity, as well as the Best Airline for Africa and Best Airline for South America.

Amazing Evolution, a hotel management and consultancy company, renews the award for Best Boutique Hotel Operator and adds the award for Best Hotel Management Company, reinforcing the leadership position of the Portuguese company, responsible for managing more than a dozen hotels in the country.

Finally, the hotel sector adds 14 more distinctions to national units: Pestana Porto Santo (Best All-Inclusive Resort), Pestana Alvor Praia (Best Beach Hotel), 1908 Lisboa Hotel (Best Design Hotel), Vila Baleira Resort (Best Insular Resort), Vila Galé Collection Braga (Best Monumental Hotel), Pine Cliffs (Best Leisure Resort), Pestana CR7 Lisboa (Best Lifestyle Hotel), Conrad Algarve (Best Lifestyle Resort), Valverde Hotel (Best Boutique Luxury Hotel), Domes Lake Algarve (Best New Resort), Cascade Wellness Resort (Best Sports Resort), Dunas Douradas Beach Club (Best Villa Resort), L’AND Vineyards (Best Hotel in Wine Region) and Monte Santo Resort (Best Romantic Resort).
