MANILA, Philippines - A nonprofit organisation in the United States has chosen Hannah's Beach Resort and Convention Center in Pagudpud town, Ilocos Norte province, as its 2014 most outstanding tourist destination in the Philippines.
Gawad Amerika Foundation (GAF), a group of US-based Filipinos that is supported by different American nonprofit groups, said "the success and remarkable achievements of Hannah's Beach Resort, locally and internationally, have been recognised not only by this organisation but most of all by the local community."
The notice of award was sent to Ricardo L. Nolasco Jr., owner of Hannah's Beach Resort and Convention Center, in a letter dated Aug. 4.
In a statement, Hannah quoted GAF founder Charles Simbulan as saying the awarding ceremony, Gawad Amerika Awards Night, would be held at Celebrity Center in Hollywood, California, next month where Hannah would be given the tourist destination award.
GAF was organised in 1996 and is based in California.
