DESTINASIAN magazine has once again tallied up its annual poll for the 15th consecutive Readers’ Choice Awards (RCA), which is now featured in the February/March issue. The results reflect the best of the luxury travel industry and the appreciation readers share for hospitality they can depend on.

This year’s poll was conducted between August and October 2019, with readers casting their votes in 31 different categories including hotels and resorts, serviced residences, airlines, airports, cruise lines, and destinations. Optional comments about the winners’ standout attributes shed light on characteristics that readers deem the most important: friendliness of staff and service, convenient location, modern facilities, quality of dining options, comfort, and design flair.

“The Asia-Pacific region is an increasingly competitive market and the RCA lets us know how travel industry brands are faring on a yearly basis,” says DestinAsian publisher Ronald Liem. “We think it’s important to give readers a voice—allowing them to send in nominations based on their firsthand experiences—and also to recognize leading brands for their continued excellence.”

Discovery Shores Boracay has been in DestinAsian Magazine’s Top 10 list of Best Hotels and Resorts in the Philippines for the third consecutive year – a true testament to their unparalleled “Service That’s All Heart” and excellent facilities. Located in one of the best beaches in the world, the resort features 99 luxurious suites equipped with the finest amenities and a world-renowned spa within its beautiful architecture. With the island’s fine white sands, dramatic sunsets and pristine blue waters, Discovery Shores Boracay is a favorite amongst discriminating local and international travelers. The resort is a member of the prestigious Preferred Hotels & Resorts Lifestyle Collection, a selection of hotels that provide responsive service and local dining that articulate culture and style.

The results of the DestinAsian Magazine’s 2020 Readers Choice Award can be found in the February/March 2020 print issue of the magazine and is published online at
