The resort has also been conferred a Safe Travels Global Protocols Stamp by the World Travel & Tourism Council as early as June 2020 for implementing health and hygiene protocols aligned with global standards, including the incessant efforts of the Resort to vaccinate its employees to provide a safer haven for travelers.
General Manager Catherine Marcelo said, “The men & women behind Fairways & Bluewater are the happiest when the resort won the Leading Beach Resort by the World Travel Awards (Asia & Oceania – Philippines). They are more motivated to continue giving excellent and professional service with a heart… welcoming travelers with a genuine smile and sincere warmth that is characteristic of the true Filipino hospitality.” She adds that the success of Fairways & Bluewater is a product of the combination of essential elements: “a pro-active and inclusive leadership from our Chairman, Mr. Chan, who vigorously & meticulously spearheads product innovation and design in the resort, extremely dedicated staff, loyal business partners & highly satisfied guests who believe in us and support us.”
