TWENTY-TWO properties operated by Centara Hotels & Resorts have been awarded the 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence. Of these, 20 are in Thailand, one in the Maldives and the other, in Vietnam.
The newly released certification, which is based on ratings posted by hotel guests, places each property within the top 10% of all businesses worldwide on the TripAdvisor website.
In 2012, eight Centara properties received the TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence.
“This is an outstanding recognition of our commitment to our guests and for the quality of our Thai-style hospitality,” says Thirayuth Chirathivat, chief executive officer of Centara Hotels & Resorts.
“As the certification is based entirely on the consistency of high ratings given by guests to businesses listed on the TripAdvisor website, it reflects the authentic feelings of our guests towards their experience with us.
“We are on a path of rapid strategic expansion, and several of the properties gaining the awards are in their first year of operation,” he said. “To gain recognition so quickly indicates that our guests appreciate and enjoy the Centara style of service.”
Centara Hotels & Resorts currently has a portfolio of 38 properties in operation in Thailand, Vietnam, Bali, the Maldives, Mauritius and Sri Lanka. A further 20 are in the construction phase, bringing the over-all total to 58.
