More than 1,600 hotels and accommodation partners from 33 markets across the world are celebrating today after being presented with the Agoda, 2018 Gold Circle Awards.

The Gold Circle Awards, now in its 10th Year, recognizes elite service, high scoring peer-to-peer customer reviews from the 22 million reviews on Agoda, as well as excellence in pricing and availability.

Of the 1,642 Gold Circle Award winners, 1,090 are recognized for the first time, including, Tintswalo Safari Lodge (South Africa), the first winner to hit a perfect score of 10.0 in their first Gold Circle Award win.

Forty three of the winning hotel partners have been presented the accolade for four years consecutively, with Sri Panwa Phuket Luxury Pool Villa Hotel (Thailand) and Rhombus Park Aura Chengdu (China), two 5-star properties that have made the shortlist four years in a row and have secured the highest review scores in their category.

This year, Thailand tops the market league table with 241 hotels represented, followed by Japan with 230, and 150 in China .

“Huge congratulations to this year’s winners.  The Gold Circle Awards give hotel guests a clear indication of the high service quality standards they can expect when they book with these hotels.  Increasingly in this digital age, customers rely upon other peers’ reviews when making decisions about where to stay, so it’s very important that our Gold Circle Awards criteria reflects this.

For Agoda, it also is a way to acknowledge and thank, the strong and trusted partnerships we have developed with our hotel and accommodation providers, as part of our overall commitment to providing customers with the best prices, greatest choice and experience,” said Errol Cooke, Vice President, Partner Services at Agoda.

Travelers who book properties with the Gold Circle Awards icon will be assured of the property’s exceptional service, quality and value.

Gold Circle Awards ceremonies will take place in over 30 locations around the world from October through December 2018.
