TripAdvisor reviewers have voted Diva, Naïade’s luxury resort in the Maldives, third in the ‘Romantic Hotels in Asia’ category of the 2010 TripAdvisor® Travellers’ Choice® Awards. With Indonesian and Thai resorts occupying first and second place, Diva is rated the best resort for romance in the Maldives; a destination renowned for its serenity and beauty and beloved of honeymooners.
Described as ‘heavenly’, ‘a paradise’, ‘the trip of a lifetime’ and ‘a true treat’, Diva received rave reviews from those sharing their travel experiences on TripAdvisor. With its unique design, seven sublime restaurants and bars, five exclusive room categories, and the Infinity Spa offering sensual treatments on land and over water, Diva embodies a new definition of unparalleled comfort and luxury.
Now in its eighth year, the annual TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards honour the world’s best hotels, as chosen by those who know them best: the travellers themselves. Unlike any other hotel awards programmes in the world, the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards are based on the millions of real, unbiased reviews and opinions on tripadvisor.com™ and content from across the web.
Johnny Mathis, general manager of Diva, commented on the prestigious recognition, “It is a fine achievement for the entire team after only one year in operation. This is indeed good news and will further boost our position as a prime destination for romance and honeymoons.”
“Inspired by the millions of trusted traveller reviews and opinions on TripAdvisor.com, the Travellers’ Choice Awards have once again highlighted the finest hotels in the world,” said Christine Petersen, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor. “From remarkable bargains to the trendiest hotels, travellers worldwide are recognising more than 700 hotels for their outstanding service, value and quality.”
The TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Award is the third international award for Diva, since opening in 2008. It follows Diva being named the best hotel in the Indian Ocean in Condé Nast Traveller’s Hot List 2009; and ‘Hideaway of the Year Award 2008’ by prestigious German magazine, Hideaway.
