Cantaloupe Aqua announced that it has received a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence award. Now in its fifth consecutive year, the award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveler reviews on TripAdvisor.
Certificate of Excellence winners include accommodations, eateries and attractions located all over the world that have continually delivered a superior customer experience.
When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account the quality, quantity and regency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period as well as business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index on the site.
To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
Commenting on this, Imran Naufal, Group General Manager, Cantaloupe Group said, “Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence a 5th consecutive time is a true source of pride for the entire team at Cantaloupe Hotels and we’d like to thank all of our past guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor. There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence.”
“TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses that have received consistent praise and recognition by travelers on the site,” said Marc Charron President, TripAdvisor for Business.
Cantaloupe-Aqua (AQUA) was the first property under the Cantaloupe Hotels portfolio. This unique hotel and beach club unashamedly surveys an idyllic ocean scene and is the first affordable boutique hotel along this sultry stretch of Galle coastline.
“I am amazed and proud to be awarded our fifth consecutive Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence award and a Bravo Badge, which is the highest form of recognition for hotels attainable from Trip Advisor. What makes this achievement more noteworthy is that it has been five years since our inception and each year we have been recognized by our guests. The encouragement, constructive critique and support we have received from our guests and TripAdvisor are a perfect combination of motivational ingredients at a time of exciting expansion for the Cantaloupe Hotel Group,” stated Dmitri Jayasuriya, Founder, Cantaloupe & Co.
Cantaloupe Aqua will be re-opening in mid June after its much anticipated renovation. The 15 room hotel will retain its award winning beach club hotel concept with subtle modernization keeping up with the trends of the new age travelers.
