We are delighted to announce that Jacqui Spice, founder of Touch of Spice, as been named as a Top Villa Specialist in the Cond? Nast Traveler Top Travel Specialist Collection for 2011.
This prestigious American travel magazine, which is synonymous for all things excellent in the travel industry, has been conducting this quest annually for the past 12 years. Thousands of travel agents and providers were researched with 133 being chosen from around the world. http://www.cntraveler.com/travel-tips/travel-specialists
While the criteria for selection aren`t listed, it appears that Cond? Nast Traveler is looking for people who can pull the impossible off for their clients because of their connections and reputation, making them the best in the world.
Ms Spice says she is thrilled with the award, not only for herself and her company but for what it means for New Zealand also.
"Awards and endorsements from Cond? Nast Traveler carry huge prestige with influential people on where they should travel to next. Our client base is predominantly Australians and New Zealanders so this award will help us grow our European and American clients immensely."
Jacqui has received awards from Cond? Nast Traveler before, being named as one of their "Top Villa Specialists" in the world in 2009, 2010 and 2011: she is the only New Zealander to have been awarded this accolade.
