5 Star Qualmark Rating in Accommodation and Gold Sustainable Tourism Business Award

We are proud to announce that we have maintained our 5 star Qualmark Accommodation and Our Gold Sustainable Tourism Business Award. We were happy to receive this as confirmation that our constant attention to development and improvement is paying off. This has been a team effort and our thanks go out to our dedicated team.

Part of the report we received:

Congratulations on achieving a 5 Star Holiday Park grade; and a Gold Sustainable Tourism Business Award, this is a great result. Congratulations also for the 2015 ISO accreditation. As the only business in New Zealand at this level, your efforts are commendable.

About the new grading system, Qualmark had this to say:

Qualmark has broadened the scope of its evaluation criteria to recognise those businesses that are focused on protecting what makes New Zealand unique and special.  Your award can be proudly displayed as evidence that Taupo DeBretts Thermal Resort is committed to protecting our beautiful natural environment, enhancing connections with our local communities, whilst also delivering a quality, safe experience for all visitors.

This comes as a welcome early present for Barry and Carol’s 30th anniversary of owning DeBretts, and a nice start to the 31st year.
