Forbes Listed The Top Hotels To Travel To In 2018 And Three Dubai Hotels Made The List


This list will definitely cause some debate…

Forbes, the well respected business publication published the 2018 Forbes Travel Guide Star Award Winners’ list, and three Dubai hotels made the coveted list.

It’s the first time the famously in depth hotel review system reviewed hotels here in Dubai and having three hotels graded ‘five star’ is a huge achievement, (scroll down for the 5-star VS 4-star grades) although we reckon the hotels that didn’t make the cut will have a lot to say.

The who’s who of the world’s top five star hotels

It’s the 60th annual list and throughout the course of a year, undercover inspectors visit hotels across 50 countries and judge hotels based on 900 objective standards.

Service is weighted at 75% and facility quality gets 25%.

The article also made special reference to the Middle East, as a newcomer, for picking up four top rated hotels (one in Abu Dhabi, three in Dubai).

“In its Forbes Travel Guide debut, the Middle East emerged with big wins. The region picked up four Five-Star hotels. It also tallied an impressive 21 Four-Star hotels and six Recommended hotels.” – Forbes
