IRVING, TX (January 4, 2011)Omni Hotels & Resorts  is celebrating the recent inclusion of two properties in Condé Nast Traveler’s 17th Annual Gold List of World’s Best Places to Stay . The magazine listed the Omni Puerto Aventuras Hotel Beach Resort in the heart of the Mayan Riviera in Mexico and the Mokara Hotel & Spa  (formerly the Watermark Hotel & Spa) in San Antonio, in its annual list of the best resorts, hotels and cruise lines for 2010. The Omni Puerto Aventuras Hotel Beach Resort and the Mokara Hotel & Spa scored 87.8 and 91.8 respectively out of 100.

According to the publication, the Gold List of hotels is based on service, food, room, design, activities and location.
