Kempinski Hotel Adriatic awarded for the second year in the row with TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for the year 2012

After the recognition received last year, Kempinski Hotel Adriatic has been awarded again with the TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for the year 2012, qualifying accommodations, attractions and restaurants listed on TripAdvisor that maintain a high overall user rating and a high volume of recent and quality reviews.

"This award is very important for us as it comes directly from our guests. We are really proud to know that they have recognized all our efforts to meet their expectations and to make their stay an unforgettable experience. Considering the fact that the Kempinski Adriatic is still a young hotel, it already can boast a nice number of recognitions. It was rated Top QuietHotel by Venere.com travelers. Our presidential suite Jure Grando was included in 101 TOP Hotel/Resort Suites of the Year 2010 worldwide by luxury US magazine Elite Traveler. The Hotel was listed among European TOP 10 Business Hotels by UK lifestyle and travel magazine Wallpaper, and last but not least, last year the quality of our service and innovative structure was recognized by the specialized magazine Way to Croatia and the Association of Croatian Travel Agencies, assigning us the Simply the Best Award", says Konstantin Zeuke, General Manager of the Kempinski Hotel Adriatic.

Those recognitions go hand in hand with the rising popularity of the upcoming region Istria where the hotel is situated in. Lonely Planet listed Istria in its traveling recommendation for 2011 as the second most desirable region worldwide, while the National Geographic chose Istria as one of 10 best must seen summer destinations in 2011 and 2012.
