TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for Els Club Teluk Datai

The Els Club Teluk Datai

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia: The Els Club Teluk Datai has been named as a recipient of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
Now in its seventh year, the achievement celebrates hospitality businesses that have earned great traveller reviews on TripAdvisor over the past year.
Certificate of Excellence recipients include restaurants, accommodations and attractions located all over the globe that have continually delivered a world-class quality customer experience.
Set against a stunning backdrop of greenery and natural beaches on the island of Langkawi, The Els Club Teluk Datai is a Golf Course Facility Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation (AGIF).
Featuring 100-foot-high trees, constant buzz of wildlife and the tranquility of coastal vistas, the Rainforest Course was designed by four-time Major champion Ernie Els, whose Ernie Els Design Company is a Full Business Member of the AGIF.
Distinguishing factors of the Rainforest Course are the holes which run adjacent to the water’s edge and those that wander through a million-year-old rainforest.
Following its official opening in 2014, the Els Club Teluk Datai scooped ‘The World’s Best New Golf Course’ award and was ranked 84th in ‘Golf Digest’s Top 100 Greatest Golf Courses in the World’.
One of its outstanding features is the attentive service the facility offers its guests. A testament to Troon Golf’s world-class standard of maintaining the course to be one of the finest conditioned in the region.
“The Els Club Teluk Datai was created in accordance to Ernie Els’ legacy of excellence in mind,” said Zainal Ashikin, Executive Director and CEO of Desaru Development Holding 1.
“From the moment guests set foot on our property, every effort is made and attention to detail met to ensure nothing short of a comprehensive approach to an elite golfing experience.
“We take absolute pride in delivering as a premier golf brand should. Receiving the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is that much more thrilling, as the recognition comes from travellers who have visited the property and enjoyed the facilities themselves.
“We sincerely thank our guests as well as TripAdvisor, and will continue our commitment to giving out best.”
The Certificate of Excellence accounts for the quality and quantity 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.
“TripAdvisor is excited to announce the recipients of the 2017 Certificate of Excellence, which celebrates hospitality businesses that have consistently received strong praise and ratings from travellers,” said Heather Leisman, Vice President of Industry Marketing, TripAdvisor.
“This recognition allows us to publicly honour businesses that are actively engaging with customers and using feedback to help travellers identify and confidently book the perfect trip.”
