Forbes Travel Guide has released its 61st annual list of Star Rating winners, recognizing the world’s finest properties and rewarding gracious, intuitive service.

The 2019 award recipients include 21 new Five-Star hotels, 49 new Four-Star hotels, and 62 new hotels in the Recommended category. Other first-time recipients include six Five-Star restaurants, eight Five-Star spas, and 21 Four-Star spas.

A standout was The Peninsula Hotels, which made Forbes Travel Guide history by becoming the world’s first all Five-Star hotel company. The Peninsula Manila earned its fifth star this year, which pushed the Hong Kong-based brand’s tally to ten Five-Star hotels.

Forbes Travel Guide rates properties in 76 countries and territories throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Africa and the Middle East. Newly-added destinations for 2019 include Anguilla, Bahrain, Belize, Da Nang, Doha, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An, Istanbul, Oman, Perth, the Swiss Alps, Tel Aviv, and Uruguay.

Several countries captured their first Five-Star hotels: Malaysia (Crockfords at Resorts World Genting), Portugal (Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon), South Korea (The Shilla Seoul), Turkey (Raffles Istanbul) and Vietnam (Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An).

“At Forbes Travel Guide, we verify luxury. Our independent inspection process is the gold standard in the hospitality industry,” said Mr. Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “Discerning travelers can trust that each winner is the best of the best. We are pleased to honor the 2019 Star Rating recipients, an exceptional collection of hotels, restaurants and spas dedicated to guest service.”

Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai, Hoi An, rests on a tranquil one-kilometer stretch of Ha My Beach, just eleven kilometers north of the UNESCO-listed Hoi An ancient town Vietnam’s central coast.

It introduces guests to a unique contemporary experience combining the classic Nam Hai style with the flair of Four Seasons. All hotel villas feature outdoor showers, private terraces, and more expansive indoor and outdoor living spaces. The resort is ideal for those seeking a romantic escape or for vacations with young children, with villas looking out over the sea or across the landscaped resort gardens.
