Now in its eighth year, the Certificate of Excellence is given to accommodations, as well as other travel businesses, that deliver great service and consistently achieve high traveller reviews on TripAdvisor. A number of hotel chains based in Asia Pacific were also recognised as the “Most Excellent” hotel chains globally. The Indian Hotels Company (Taj and Vivanta) and Shangri-La Group came in #3 and #5 respectively under the medium chains category whereas The Oberoi Group, Aman Group, Pan Pacific Hotels Group and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts made up the top 10 in the small chains category. “The Certificate of Excellence is widely recognised by travellers as an indicator for consistent, high quality service and experience, a recognition you will find proudly displayed in hotels all around the world,” said Grant Colquhoun, TripAdvisor’s spokesperson for Asia Pacific. “For the first time ever, TripAdvisor is shining a light on the chains that have received the most Certificate of Excellence this year. Congratulations to all these excellent brands for this tremendous achievement!” Get the full story at TripAdvisor
