Scenic Hotel Tonga Honoured With TripAdvisor Excellence Award
29 May 2013 – Scenic Hotel Tonga is delighted to announce it has today received a certificate of excellence from international tourism ratings website TripAdvisor.
The award recognises hotels across the world that achieve consistently high ratings from guests, and puts Scenic Hotel Tonga in the top 10 per cent of accommodation providers internationally.
Scenic Hotel Tonga General Manager Ross Brljevich says the award is particularly satisfying as it’s based on guest ratings. “It’s wonderful to get good feedback from our guests, and to know that they’re actually making the effort to go online and share their experiences at our hotel. We certainly try our best to make everyone feel special and ensure a great stay – it’s good to hear it from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.”
Scenic Hotel Tonga is the first off-shore property owned by Scenic Hotel Group, the largest New Zealand owned and operated hotel chain. Opened in July 2012, the hotel boasts 72 luxuriously appointed rooms, a restaurant and bar, and the largest swimming pool on Tongatapu.
“Our proximity to the airport makes Scenic Hotel Tonga a great option for both corporate travellers and those stopping over in Tongatapu before heading off to some of the outer islands,” says Ross. “We’re finding that more and more, those travellers are staying longer at the hotel to make the most of the international levels of service. With some of the best beaches just a short drive away, and Nuku’alofa a half hour drive, we think Scenic Hotel Tonga offers the best of the pacific with a unique New Zealand flavour of hospitality and presentation. Apparently our guests agree.”
Scenic Hotel Group is the largest New Zealand owned and operated hotel chain. It consists of the Qualmark 3-star Heartland Hotels, 4-star Scenic Hotels and the 5-star Te Waonui Forest Retreat. Multi-million dollar annual investments in refurbishment, renovation and expansion, and a dedication to the best New Zealand suppliers and products keeps the Group at the forefront of domestic and international tourism.
TripAdvisor recognises the world’s most outstanding hotels with the help of more than 75 million reviews and opinions from travellers around the globe. For further information please contact:Ross Brljevich
