"We are grateful to be recognised by our guests and TripAdvisor, and proud to be alongside this year's illustrious list of winning hotels and resorts," said Michael Sengol, Chief Executive Office of Meritus Hotels & Resorts. "This is indeed an inspiring affirmation of our brand's impact on the international travel community. We thank our many guests for their continuous feedback and support, and our hotel teams for their stellar delivery of our signature service experience that made this award possible."
Also recently conferred the distinction of Singapore's Most Popular Heritage Brand, Meritus Hotels & Resorts is synonymous with Asian hospitality and heritage, delivering on its brand promise of Asian Grace, Warmth, and Care for the last four decades. Its current portfolio includes luxury properties strategically located in key cities and idyllic resort destinations in Singapore, Malaysia, Mainland China, and soon -- in other parts of the world, as it expands its presence into fast-growing business and tourism hubs.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the annual TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards honours the world's best hotels and resorts, earning their distinctions from those who know them best -- real travellers. Unlike any other hotel honours, TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice winners are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions from travellers around the world.
"With the help of millions of travellers around the globe, TripAdvisor is thrilled to recognise the world's most outstanding hotels for the tenth year of the Travelers' Choice Awards," said Christine Petersen, President, TripAdvisor for Business. "From the best bargain hotels to the best luxury hotels, remarkable service, value and quality are the hallmarks of our Travelers' Choice winners."
