Wayanad, Rishikesh, Amritsar and Jaisalmer have featured in the top 100 list of high quality services in hotels, in terms of best value for money, according to a report by global hotel search website Trivago.
In the fourth edition of the Trivago Best Value Index, Wayanad, located in the Western Ghats in Kerala, has secured the ninth position globally with a score of 96.36 per cent.
Scaling up to 100, the Best Value Index lists the best combined score on consumer rating and average hotel price.
The report noted that Wayanad was famous among the locals and people coming from within the state, but recently it has become an attraction point for more pan-India travellers as well as foreign travellers.
Rishikesh (Uttarakhand) made it to the 13th position on the list with a score of 96.24 per cent.
For a long time, Rishikesh has been known only for religious importance, but recently it has emerged with many adventure sports activities, besides gaining significance in the western society as ‘World Yoga Capital’, the report noted.
“It is clear that travellers from the world believe that hotels in these small places like Wayanad and Rishikesh are excelling in serving the customers, keeping them happy and providing best value for their money,” said Abhinav Kumar of Trivago India.
