A proprietary algorithm to determine the honourees that takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period, as well as a business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index on the site. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
As 2015 marks the fifth anniversary of the award, TripAdvisor has made several Certificate of Execellence enhancements this year by awarding the Certificate of Excellence “Hall of Fame” to businesses that have won a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years to help reinforce the success of these award-winning properties.
“We’re very pleased that our 9 properties in Thailand have earned the Certificate of Excellence Award this year. While only 9% of total winners this year have qualified for the Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame, we are extremely proud that De Naga Hotel Chiang Mai, The Sunset Beach Resort & Spa Taling Ngam, Sukhothai Heritage Resort and Paradise Beach Resort – Samui have received this prestigious award. The other two properties, including Putahracsa – Hua Hin and Saree Samui – Mae Nam Beach have also both won TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award for the fourth consecutive year while Nishaville – Prachuap Khiri Khan and Blue Ocean Resort – Phuket have won it for three years in a row” said Jonathan Kreuter, Director of Marketing Communications for both The Unique Collection of Hotels & Resorts and Variety Hotels, which manage the properties. “We always strive to beat our previous goals by offering our guests the best possible experience, and these awards recognize our hard working efforts and motivate us to maintain our award winning service to our customers.”
“By putting a spotlight on businesses that are focused on delivering great service to customers, TripAdvisor not only helps to drive us in improving our hospitality standards around the world but it also gives businesses both large and small the ability to shine and stand out from the competition”, said Marc Charron, President of TripAdvisor for Business.
