NextGuest Wins Four 2019 Travel Weekly Magellan Awards

NextGuest was honored with four awards in the Travel Weekly 2019 Magellan Awards. Each year, the Magellan Awards acknowledge the extraordinary travel professionals who provide the best products and services in the industry. We are pleased to be recognized among the top industry organizations and professionals.


NextGuest received the following Magellan Awards:

Gold Awards:

  • Heritage Hotels Website: Heritage Hotels is a collection of New Zealand properties that offer the best-in-class Kiwi hospitality. To promote the brand’s 14 unique destinations and convey its unparalleled service, all while driving more direct bookings, NextGuest Digital designed and developed a new, responsive website for the brand and its 18 hotel properties.
  • The Resort at Pedregal Website: The Resort at Pedregal is Mexico’s #1 hotel resort. The ultra-luxe, ultra-exclusive resort in Cabo San Lucas is a truly elevated experience unlike any other, and they needed a new, responsive website to match. NextGuest Digital designed and developed a new website that captivates guests and helps transport them a world away — long before they set foot on the hotel property.
  • Hard Rock Hotels Website: Born out of a 1970s cafe in London that covered its walls with rock and roll memorabilia, Hard Rock Hotels is a global brand of hotels and casinos with a larger-than-life reputation. NextGuest Digital designed a new site for the brand that helps users feel more like rock stars at every stage of the travel customer journey.

Silver Awards:

  • The London West Hollywood Website: The website features a stunning video on the homepage, and a custom page honoring their official mascots, Winston & Churchill. NextGuest Digital also created a mini-site for weddings.
