In January of this year, Calabash Grenada was honoured with three TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards for being ranked No. 8 of the Top 25 Hotels in the Caribbean, No. 7 of the Top 25 Luxury Hotels in Caribbean and No.16 of the Top 25 Hotels for Romance in Caribbean.
Today the resort announced that it has been recognised as a TripAdvisor®Certificate of Excellence Hall of Fame winner. The Certificate of Excellence award celebrates excellence in hospitality and is given only to establishments that consistently achieve great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor. The ‘Hall of Fame’ was created to honour those businesses that have earned a Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years.
“We are very extremely honoured and humbled by the fact that we have been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence five years in a row and inducted into the ‘Hall of Fame’. Awards from TripAdvisor are based on our guest’s feedback and so this is a true source of pride for the entire team at Calabash. Standards worldwide are extremely high but the Calabash has the ability to stand up there with the best of them. We would like to thank all of our loyal past guests who took the time to complete a review on TripAdvisor and to our excellent team who have creating such a wonderful environment for our guests,” said Adele Garbutt, Resort Director and part of the owning family of Calabash Grenada.
"Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for five consecutive years is a remarkable feat. TripAdvisor is pleased to induct five-time award winners into the ‘Hall of Fame’,” said Marc Charron President, TripAdvisor for Business.
When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honourees that takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period as well as business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index on the site. 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.
Calabash Hotel, which was has been ranked the top hotel in Grenada on TripAdvisor for over a year, completed an extensive upgrade project in 2014 and has just announced early closure to embark on further renovations throughout late July, August and September of 2015.
