Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world’s leading luxury hospitality company, has been awarded Five-Star ratings for all of its UAE Collection properties in the Forbes Travel Guide 2019. The awards represent the highest honour available in the prestigious annual guide to the world’s top hotels, and reflect the outstanding level of service enjoyed by guests at the three stunning properties.

Four Seasons Hotel Abu Dhabi at Al Maryah Island features in the guide for the first time since opening in 2016, and was one of only two properties in the UAE’s capital city to receive the honour. Meanwhile, in Dubai, Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach and Four Seasons Hotel Dubai International Financial Centre retained their Five-Star ratings for the second year running, and took their places among the three hotels in Dubai to be awarded five stars.

Leonardo Baiocchi, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach, commented, “It’s an honour and a privilege to have all three of our UAE Collection properties featured in the Forbes Travel Guide 2019 with Five Star ratings, which is globally recognised as one of the highest accolades in the world of hospitality. The emphasis placed on quality of service by the Forbes rating system makes it especially rewarding to know we are consistently delivering impeccable hospitality in true Four Seasons style. This remarkable achievement highlights the outstanding craftsmanship and dedication of our teams, whose shared passion for creating extraordinary experiences shines through and brings great delight to our guests on a daily basis.”
