TripAdvisor has announced its 2012 Traveler’s Choice Awards celebrating the top travel destinations in the world.

Sonora Resort, a Relais & Chateaux property, was voted a top resort in three categories: Fourth for Best Hotel in Canada; 16th for Best Relaxation and Spa in Canada; and 19th for Best in Service in Canada.

“It is an honour we take very seriously to be given 100 per cent excellent reviews by our guests and to be named a top resort in three separate categories of the 2012 Travelers’ Choice Awards,” said Wynne Powell, Sonora Resort president and CEO. “Sonora Resort is now becoming widely known for our commitment to excellence in guest services, our one-of-a-kind outdoor adventures and experiences, and world-class hospitality. We are truly thrilled our guests dedicate time to write and review Sonora on TripAdvisor, year-after-year.”

This is also the first time Sonora Resort’s Island Currents Spa has been recognized by TripAdvisor for its top 25 in Best Relaxation and Spa award.

Sonora’s spa overlooks the sea and inlets, with six treatment rooms, a 252-jet hydrotherapy tub, manicure and pedicure room, gym, yoga room and outdoor hot and cold mineral pools.

“With such an enormous abundance of world-class travel destinations in Canada, we are so appreciative of our guests’ contribution to TripAdvisor naming Sonora Resort number four in its Best Hotel in Canada ranking,” said Sean Ross, Sonora Resort general manager.
