  • With 15 properties included in the list of winners for the Forbes Travel Guide 2020 Star Awards, the Philippines is definitely on an upward journey in the hospitality industry, besting last year’s number by two.

    Forbes Travel Guide is the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas.

    Its anonymous professional inspectors evaluate based on up to 900 objective standards, with an emphasis on exceptional service, to help discerning travelers select the world’s best luxury experiences. The only way to get a 5 Star, 4 Star, or Recommended rating is by earning it through its independent inspection process.

    Included in the list of luxury properties with 5 Star ratings are Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, Nuwa Manila at City of Dreams, Nuwa Spa Manila, Okada Manila, Sky Tower at Solaire Resort & Casino, and The Peninsula Manila.
