Based on a full year of TripAdvisor reviews, the Travellers’ Choice Awards honour the best in travel, recognising the places that delivered the most exceptional experiences.

TripAdvisor Chief Commercial Officer Kanika Soni said she was pleased with the businesses efforts to adapt to a COVID-19 environment.

“The Travellers’ Choice Awards recognise the best in tourism and hospitality, according to those who matter most: your guests,” she said.

“Ranking among the Best of the Best is always tough — but never more so than this year as we emerge from the pandemic.

“Whether it’s using new technology, implementing safety measures, I’m impressed by the steps you’ve taken to meet travellers’ new demands in your second year in business, you’ve adapted brilliantly in the face of adversity.”
