Even during a pandemic, four of Megaworld Hotel’s homegrown hotel brands still snagged prestigious international recognitions from the 2020 Tripadvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards.
Savoy Hotel Manila and Belmont Hotel Manila in Newport City, Savoy Hotel Boracay in Boracay Newcoast, and Richmonde Hotel Iloilo in Iloilo Business Park all received prestigious recognitions at the highly-coveted annual awards program spearheaded by Tripadvisor, the world’s largest travel platform.
All four were likewise recipients of the Certificate of Excellence recognition back in 2019.
In the restaurant category, Café Belmont, Savoy Café Manila, and The Granary at Richmonde Hotel Iloilo also emerged as winners for consistent positive reviews from diners.
“These accolades will only serve to boost the kind of service and dedication our homegrown hotels provide. With the pandemic affecting the hospitality industry, these recognitions come at the best time since most travelers need a highly-recommended hotel to stay in and this will definitely inspire our associates to do more as they serve our guests,” says Cleofe Albiso, group general manager, Megaworld Hotels.
Based on a full year of Tripadvisor reviews, prior to any changes caused by the pandemic, award winners are known for consistently receiving great traveler feedback, placing them in the top 10% of hospitality businesses around the globe.
For many years, Tripadvisor’s Travelers’ Choice and Certificate of Excellence programs have honored select destinations, airlines, accommodations, attractions, experiences, and restaurants around the world. This year’s awards program honored more than 4,000 exceptional businesses all over the world, thus serving as testament to the excellent quality of service and experience provided by the winners.
“Winners of the 2020 Travelers’ Choice Awards should be proud of this distinguished recognition. Although it’s been a challenging year for travel and hospitality, we want to celebrate our partners’ achievements. Award winners are beloved for their exceptional service and quality. Not only are these winners well-deserving, but they are also a great source of inspiration for travelers as the world begins to venture out again,” Kanika Soni, chief commercial officer, Tripadvisor.
