Massive online booking portal TripAdvisor’s Certificates of Excellence for 2015 have been awarded to 28 Centara hotels and resorts in 2015, in locations as diverse as Vietnam and the Maldives. This represents an almost 50% increase upon last year’s performance for the brand. The internationally-recognized accolade, which represents online users’ consensus as to which establishments consistently deliver outstanding travel experiences, celebrates the best in accommodations, attractions and eateries across the world.
The enormous popularity of TripAdvisor can be largely attributed to the efficacy of the ‘user reviews’ that the site highlights, which are often viewed by travellers as more genuine and insightful than corporate marketing material.
“We are thrilled to have been recognized in this extremely visible manner; although we performed well last year, to see so many more Centara properties receiving TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence means that as we are expanding our range of properties, we are continuing to do things right,” commented Centara CEO Thirayuth Chirathivat. “It’s also a hearty endorsement of the consistently good work of management and the team at each property.”
The individual Centara properties receiving the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2015 are listed on page 3 for your convenience. TripAdvisor has also started this year, the Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame, in honour of their fifth year awarding the Certificate of Excellence (COE), which is awarded to properties that have won the COE award all five years. We are pleased to share that 11 of our properties have made the Hall of Fame. Please find the list of properties on page 4.
