MACAU and HONG KONG — Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited (“Melco”) is pleased to announce that it has attained the top number of entries for any global hospitality group in Greater China in the “Forbes Travel Guide 2018 World’s Most Luxurious Hotels” and “Forbes Travel Guide 2018 World’s Most Luxurious Spas”, with three hotels and two spas under the Melco brand garnering the prestigious recognition. The publication has named Macau as a top global destination which features the biggest number of highlighted properties, with Melco leading the Macau-based list of hotels with Altira Macau and Nuwa Macau. Melco’s other hotels and spas to attain this accolade include Nuwa Manila, Nuwa Macau Spa and Zensa Spa at Studio City. Notably, Nuwa Macau and Nuwa Spa Macau were honored across both the hotel and spa categories, one of only eight global double winners where same-property hotel and spa were honored by the world-renowned travel guide.
The Forbes Travel Guide, a global independent rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas, is well-respected as a premium ranking for the travel and hospitality industry. Forbes Travel Guide’s 2018 Verified Lists are compiled from data gathered by incognito inspectors, who stay at the properties and evaluate them on up to 900 standards. This data is then used to determine the guide’s Star Ratings, which were announced earlier in February 2018. The Most Luxurious winners are recognized as top performers in the specific standards that reflect detailed attention to the hotel guest experience and for offering unrivalled levels of sumptuous comfort, luxurious choices and top-notch services in the industry.
The “Forbes Travel Guide 2018 World’s Most Luxurious Hotels” winners included 58 hotels in 17 countries, representing the top 6 percent of all Star Rated hotels globally, while the “Forbes Travel Guide 2018 World’s Most Luxurious Spas” winners include 30 spas in six countries, representing the highest-performing 11 percent of all Star Rated spas globally.
“We are pleased to be recognized by this award and this is a remarkable achievement for Melco’s properties in Macau and the Philippines,“ said Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment. “We are grateful that our commitment to excellence has been recognized, and our priority is always to deliver the very best to our guests. We strive to and will continue to offer our guests the finest and most luxurious experiences possible through our properties. Most importantly, I would like to express my appreciation to all our employees, whose efforts and dedication is what made this successful achievement possible.”
