A number of hotels in the country were given a prestigious 2021 Traveler’s Choice Award from Tripadvisor, the world’s largest travel destination planning platform, the Department of Tourism (DOT) announced Monday.
The Manor at Camp John Hay in Baguio is one of the recipients of Tripadvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Best of the Best Award, ranking among the top 1% of all hotel listings nationwide.
Hotels Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation Resort and dusitD2 in Davao, Midori Clark Hotel and Quest Plus Conference Center Clark in Pampanga, and the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu City were also notified to receive the award, DOT added.
Based on visitor feedback from the previous year, the highly sought-after award recognizes hotels worldwide that provided exceptional service to visitors even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This global recognition is a testament to the success of the steps we are taking to lessen the long-term impact of the pandemic on the hospitality industry and drive its recovery,” Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said.
To recall, Boracay’s White Beach made it to the 12th spot while Palawan’s Nacpan Beach ranked 18th on the Travelers’ Choice 2021 Best of the Best Awards Top 25 Beaches – Asia Category last March.
