One&Only Wins Global Accolades from Forbes Travel Guide

One&Only Resorts has swept a host of new accolades in the annual Forbes Travel Guide Ratings with Five-Star Ratings for One&Only Cape Town, One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos, One&Only Le Saint Géran in Mauritius and One&Only Reethi Rah in the Maldives. One&Only Royal Mirage and One&Only The Palm in Dubai retained their prestigious Four-Star Ratings.

Forbes Travel Guide is the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas and created the concept of Five-Star Ratings in 1958. The company’s anonymous professional inspectors visit thousands of hotels around the world, staying at least two nights and paying their own way. They seek experiences that are enlightening, elevating and enriching and score their assessments based on 900 objective standards, with an emphasis on exceptional service, to help discerning travellers select the world’s best luxury experiences. The only way to achieve a Star Rating is to earn it through this independent inspection process. There are just 268 Five-Star hotels worldwide in the 2020 rating.

A Five-Star property is judged to be outstanding, often iconic, with virtually flawless service and amazing facilities. A Four-Star property delivers exceptional service and the quality of facility to match.

“We are delighted to receive this global industry recognition for One&Only Resorts” said Philippe Zuber, Kerzner International, Chief Operations Officer. “One&Only is conceived as a hallmark of excellence and we are proud to add Forbes Travel Guide Star-Ratings to our roster of awards to rank us among the best in the world. This is a true testament to our incredible colleagues around the world that are delivering our guests amazing experiences and everlasting memories.”

Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide, congratulated One&Only and said: “We have been committed to championing genuine Five-Star service for more than 60 years, and this year’s winners, as always, exemplify the very highest standards in hospitality. It is difficult to earn a Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating, and all our Star Award winners have shown how incredibly deserving they are of their accolades by demonstrating sheer dedication in their passion for service.”
