The Best of Melco Resorts

The Forbes Travel Guide, a global authority on luxury travel also recognized Hyatt Regency Manila, Nobu Hotel Manila, and Nüwa Spa Manila with Four-Star ratings, like last year.

Overall, the FTG , whose independent rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas is well-respected as a premium ranking in the travel and hospitality industry, accorded  thirteen Melco properties with  Five-Stars, and  five hotels  with Four Stars – with a record-breaking total of 85 stars, the top number of stars received by any integrated resort operator in Macau and Asia.

Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment said, “Attaining this level of recognition from the Forbes Travel Guide has tremendous significance to us as a company and to me personally.”

He added: “Forbes Stars hold as much relevance to our team members as they do to our guests, and are ongoing proof of Melco’s commitment to excellence, and relentless enthusiasm for creating exceptional experiences.  I would like to express my deepest appreciation to every one of our hospitality professionals for their hard work dedicated to making Melco Asia’s leading integrated resort operator.”

This is the tenth consecutive year for Melco’s Altira Macau to achieve the Forbes Five-Star recognition. Notably, Nüwa Macau remains the first and only integrated resort in Asia  to receive  FTG Five-Star across  its entire portfolio of  hotel, spa and dining facilities; while Studio City’s Star Tower  is honored for the first time as triple category Five-Sar property.
