A total of 19 properties operated by Minor Hotels were included in this year’s ‘Best of the Best’

Minor Hotels, one of the world’s largest hotel owners and operators, has secured more than 270 awards at the Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice 2023 awards, including 19 prestigious ‘Best of the Best’ accolades that recognise the top 1% of listings on the site.

The annual Travellers’ Choice Awards are based on a full year of Tripadvisor reviews, making them a direct result of feedback from guests across the globe, and recognising the brands, properties and destinations that have delivered the most exceptional experiences for travellers.

The awards consist of two categories: ‘Best of the Best’, which celebrates the top 1% of listings on Tripadvisor and is considered the site’s highest honour; and ‘Travelers’ Choice’, which recognises those in the top 10% of listings.

A total of 19 properties operated by Minor Hotels were included in this year’s ‘Best of the Best’, including winners from the Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spa, Anantara Vacation Club, Tivoli Hotels & Resorts, NH Collection Hotels and Oaks Hotels, Resorts & Suites brands. The awards also spanned the group’s global footprint, with Minor Hotels recording ‘Best of the Best’ wins in Europe, South America, Australia, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.

Among the group’s four wins in Asia was Avani+ Khao Lak Resort, located on Thailand’s Andaman Coast, which earned a highly coveted ‘Best of the Best’ award as one of the ‘Hottest New Hotels in the World’.

In Africa, Anantara Maia Seychelles Villas picked up two Best of the Best awards, in the Luxury in Africa and Top Hotels in Africa segments. 

Minor Hotels also earned four Best of the Best wins in The Netherlands, with Anantara Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky Amsterdam, NH Collection Eindhoven Centre and NH Collection Amsterdam Barbizon Palace each winning in the Luxury in the Netherlands segment, and Tivoli Doelen Amsterdam earning a coveted Top Hotels in the Netherlands award.

Minor Hotels also earned more than 250 Travelers’ Choice honours, including 49 in Thailand, a recognition of the group’s commitment to providing incredible experiences for guests across its global portfolio of more than 530 hotels.

Commenting on the achievement, Dillip Rajakarier, Group CEO of Minor International and CEO of Minor Hotels, said: “We are thrilled and humbled to be recognised across so many of our hotels globally. Success in the Travelers’ Choice awards is a direct reflection of feedback from our guests, and for Minor Hotels to win so many is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire team, as well as the unwavering support of our loyal guests.”
