Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world’s leading luxury hospitality company, announces that Forbes Travel Guide has awarded Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip a Five-Star rating, its highest honour. Worldwide, 30 Four Seasons hotels and resorts earned the coveted Five-Star designation in 2017, setting the record for the highest number of Five-Star awards given to a single brand in the history of the Forbes Travel Guide Ratings.
This is the fourth time that Forbes Five Stars have sparkled at Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip. In addition, the Hotel’s Spa has earned Four Stars, and its restaurant Zi Yat Heen has also earned Four Stars.
“I want to sincerely thank my team in achieving this accomplishment. This honour cannot be reached without their determination to succeed and their passion to live by the Golden Rule: ‘treat others the way you wish to be treated.’ The truly special team here uses this as a foundation to create strong bonds with each other, create lasting memories for our guests and to consistently delivering the highest levels of product and service excellence that have made this recognition possible for the last four years,” says Kris Kaminsky, General Manager of Four Seasons Hotel Macao, Cotai Strip.
Star Ratings are awarded by a team of anonymous professional inspectors. In the words of Forbes Travel Guide, its inspectors “travel the world to assess hotels, restaurants and spas against up to 800 objective standards.” Star Ratings ultimately emphasise quality of service. Five-Star properties are defined as “outstanding, often iconic properties with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities.”
Forbes Travel Guide rates properties in 42 countries throughout the Americas, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region, with plans to add the Middle East and Africa for 2018.
