Awarded to less than 1% of the over one million properties listed with agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and a part of the Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group, the awards recognize accommodation partners that embody the best qualities of the online booking travel experience and who work closely with agoda to surpass expectations of standard internet offering.
According to agoda.com the selection criteria of the highly competitive Gold Circle Award is based on consistently glowing customer reviews; competitive pricing in the marketplace; diligent utilization of agoda’s custom-built YCS (Yield Control System); and a willingness to work with agoda to create faster, easier bookings worldwide.
The Gold Circle Award adds on to the series of international awards won by Maalu Maalu Resort and Spa, Passikuda managed by Theme Resorts since its inception in 2011, which includes consecutive World Luxury Hotel Awards and TripAdviser Certificate of Excellence.
Congratulating the winners this year Errol Cooke, Vice President Global Partner Services at Agoda added that, “Each year the selection becomes more competitive as accommodation properties continue to enhance their customer offerings on Agoda. We are very much looking forward to working even closer with our partners in 2017, to bring an even better online booking travel experience.”
