Jun 18, 2011

Four resort properties within the Centara Hotels & Resorts group have been awarded a 2011 Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.

The properties are Centara Villas Phuket, Chen Sea Resort & Spa Fu Quoc, Centara Grand Beach Resort Phuket, and Centara Karon Resort Phuket.

Certification is awarded by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel advice site, to properties that most consistently receive “excellent” ratings from travelers.

“The reviews and ratings posted on TripAdvisor are from our own guests, so we are extremely proud to receive these awards,” said Gerd Steeb, President of Centara Hotels & Resorts, “This recognition endorses the quality of our hotels and service.”

Chris Bailey, Senior Vice President for Sales and Marketing at Centara Hotels & Resorts said that traveler and customer testimonials are becoming a powerful force in marketing.

“The online presence of comments and ratings from customers that have experienced service are now very influential in customer decision making,” he said, “Travelers from around the world are able to share their experiences, where they can be viewed by anyone planning a trip.

“This is why we never stop researching customer behavior and developing our services to go beyond their expectations.”

Centara Hotels & Resorts is Thailand’s largest operator of hotels, with 37 deluxe and first-class properties covering all the major tourist destinations in the kingdom. A further 10 resorts in the Maldives; Indian Himalayas; Philippines; Vietnam; and Bali, Indonesia; brings the present total to 47 properties.
