Madi a Thavha mountain lodge has received the 2016 TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence for the third year in a row.
“With the Certificate of Excellence, TripAdvisor honours hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travellers”, says Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing, TripAdvisor. “This recognition helps travellers identify and book properties that regularly deliver great service. TripAdvisor helps travellers to feel more confident in their booking decisions.”
“We work very hard to consistently keep our lodge and service at this high level and to keep up with high standard that Fair trade tourism requires,” says owners of the lodge Aart van Soest and Marcelle Bosch.
We have wonderful guests
“Our guests really appreciate that too, they love to experience authentic rural Africa on our village tours and to come back to the beauty and tranquil luxury of the lodge. Our staff are helpful, friendly and entertaining. People also like to come home to healthy, homemade food and are interested to taste local ingredients like the baobab cheesecake we make with the gigantic Baobabs’s fruit-powder.”
The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality, quantity and recency of reviews submitted by travellers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period. 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.
