Hannah’s Beach Resort & Convention Center has been named by Gawad Amerika Foundation as “2014 Most Outstanding Tourist Destination” in the Philippines.
In a letter addressed to Hannah’s Beach Resort owner Retired PAF Col. Ricardo Nolasco, Gawad Amerika Foundation founding president and chief executive officer Charles Simbulan cited the resort’s success and achievements as a tourist destination as basis for the award.
Grateful and proud of the award, Col. Nolasco said, “I’m truly happy that our humble efforts to help promote tourism in Ilocos Norte have been recognized by such a prestigious entity like Gawad Amerika Foundation. This award will make us even more diligent and dedicated in our programs to promote Hannah’s Beach Resort in particular and Ilocos Norte in general in the field of local tourism.”
