What Makes a Forbes Travel Guide Five Star?

When Forbes Travel Guide’s expert inspectors visit a property, they anonymously test it based on hundreds of exacting standards – and only the best of the best achieve the Five Star. The ratings depend on the following:

-        Authentic Guest Experience: The first evaluation touchpoint is measuring one’s guest experience which is highlighted through a passionate staff who goes over and beyond to ensure you have the best and smoothest experience.

-        Sustainability and Luxury: Sustainability has become a non-negotiable for many of today’s guests, and many turn to FTG’s new Responsible Tourism program to look for sustainable hotels who have been awarded the VERIFIED badge.

-        Evolution of Well-Being: Aspects such as outdoor space, good lighting, fresh air, and high-quality sleeping experience are all part of the decision-making process at Star Rating levels.

-        Curation of an Experience: This measures a hotel’s ability to offer its visitors a unique experience in order to foster a deeper, long-term connection with the destination.
