After Travellers’ Choice award, Kandolhu Maldives retains Certificate of Excellence
Kandolhu Maldives has bagged another recognition from TripAdvisor, this time retaining the Certificate of Excellence for the third year.
“We are humbled by another great milestone for the resort, we would like to thank our esteemed (and often repeat) guests, and of course our stellar team going to great lengths to ensure each guest at Kandolhu Maldives has the genuinely-serviced and laid back luxe experience we are known for,” Marc LeBlanc, Resort Manager, said, in an announcement by the resort.
Now in its seventh year, the Certificate of Excellence designation recognises establishments that consistently earn great reviews on TripAdvisor from travellers.
It accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. 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.
