SINGAPORE, 12 May, 2021 – With a year’s worth of pent-up travel demand on the brink of bursting as summer approaches, Tripadvisor®, the world’s largest travel guidance platform, today announced its annual Travellers’ Choice® Best of the Best Awards for Hotels, giving people the inspiration they need to finally turn their daydreams into real trips. A recent Tripadvisor survey found that 35% of Singaporeans are planning to travel internationally this year.
Novotel Singapore on Stevens has been named the best-rated hotel in Singapore in the 19th annual Travellers’ Choice® Best of the Best Awards for Hotels. Four Seasons Hotel Singapore and One Farrer Hotel have come in second and third on the list.
Putting Singapore on the world map, Marina Bay Sands is ranked number 12 on the World’s Most Saved Hotels list and number 22 on the World’s Most Picture Perfect Hotels list. The Outpost Hotel Sentosa by Far East Hospitality came in at number 21 on the World’s Most Picture Perfect Hotels list.
Every year, Tripadvisor combs through the millions of reviews from its global community of travellers to surface the hotels that people raved about most, and this year is no different. Even during the pandemic, travellers continued to discover, book, and give feedback on places to stay, both near and far. Despite significant disruption to the hospitality industry in 2020, hotels around the world found new ways to dazzle guests and deliver top-of-the-line service.
“2020 was definitely the year of staycations in Singapore and we’re all excited about the news of travel bubbles emerging in the region. Tripadvisor’s Best of the Best awards celebrate the best hotels around the world - big, small, romantic and more, inviting travellers to get inspired and start planning their epic return to travel once it’s safe again,” said Tripadvisor spokesperson, Jane Lim.
New year, new categories
In addition to the much-loved categories of hotels and B&Bs that Tripadvisor typically awards, an exciting change for 2021 includes the introduction of four brand-new categories, taking the total to 10. New this year are the Hottest New Hotels (properties that opened in July 2019 or later), Top Rooftop Hotels, Safari Stays and Picture-Perfect Hotels (properties with gorgeous photos on Tripadvisor).
