The Grand Hacienda today announced it has been recognized by Tripadvisor as a 2022 Travelers’ Choice award winner for Accommodations. The award celebrates businesses that have received great reviews from travelers around the globe on Tripadvisor over the last 12 months. As challenging as the past year was, The Grand Hacienda stood out by consistently delivering positive experiences to its guests.

“We are so honored to be recognized with this award. We opened The Grand Hacienda two weeks before COVID hit, and despite all the challenges the hospitality industry faced with COVID, The Grand Hacienda proved to be a travel oasis for those seeking remote, private locations with natural isolation. We are so grateful for all our guests who discovered us, trusted us with their travel plans, and spread the word about this property, the culinary experience and this spectacular location. We loving sharing this space and the history and culture of Abiquiú with our guests,” said Carolyn Calfee, General Manager and Owner.

“Congratulations to The Grand Hacienda, a 2022 Tripadvisor Travelers’ Choice Winner,” said Kanika Soni, Chief Commercial Officer at Tripadvisor. “The Travelers’ Choice Awards recognize the best in tourism and hospitality, according to those who matter most: your guests. Ranking among the Travelers’ Choice winners is always tough — but never more so than this year as we emerge from the pandemic. Whether it's using new technology, implementing safety measures, or hiring outstanding staff, I’m impressed by the steps you've taken to meet travelers' new demands. You've adapted brilliantly in the face of adversity."

About The Grand Hacienda

The Grand Hacienda Estate is a luxurious bed and breakfast inn located on Abiquiú Lake in northern New Mexico. The Hacienda was built in 2020 from a blank slate – a combination of pueblo and Spanish hacienda architecture, inspired design, modern technology and a very green footprint. With only three suites, the Hacienda is an serene escape, a retreat nestled on a mesa top overlooking Abiquiú Lake, Ghost Ranch, the Red Cliffs, Pedernal, and plains of red, yellow, purple and green. Dramatically perched on its mesa this elegant, high-end bed and breakfast offers a luxury experience in a location surrounded by quiet stillness. Located in the middle of Georgia O'Keeffe country, you will feel what she did when saying, "It's something that's in the air – it's different. The sky is different, the wind is different." This breathtaking land and the beauty of The Hacienda are sure to soothe, calm and inspire exploration.
