Fit for Forbes


Forbes Travel Guide has released its first annual Verified Lists, naming Sandy Lane Hotel as one of the World’s Most Luxurious Hotels. Sandy Lane will be showcased with all the other winners on

“Receiving such an accolade is a true source of pride for the entire team at Sandy Lane,” comments General Manager Randall Wilkie. “To be mentioned as one of the highest-performing six per cent of all Forbes Star Rated hotels globally is a great honour. We have an extraordinary team who go above and beyond the call of duty every day. With their unwavering dedication, we know our vision of being the premier luxury resort in the world will soon be a reality.”

Forbes Travel Guide’s 2018 Verified Lists are compiled from data gathered by the company’s incognito inspectors who stay at the properties and evaluate them on up to 900 standards, used to determine the guide’s Star Ratings, which were announced in February. The Most Luxurious winners are the top performers in the specific standards that reflect detailed attention to the level of sumptuous comfort as well as luxurious choices and conveniences afforded to guests.

Fifty-eight hotels in 17 countries earned the coveted designation, representing the top six per cent of 1,017 Star Rated hotels in performance on standards related to luxury. 30 spas in six countries won awards, out of 269 Star Rated spas worldwide.

“We are pleased to recognize the 2018 Most Luxurious Hotels and Spas in our debut Verified Lists,” said Amanda Frasier, Forbes Travel Guide’s Executive Vice President of Ratings.

“In a time when so many properties claim to be luxurious, the word has become ubiquitous. Forbes Travel Guide’s Verified Lists give guests an objective, data-driven source for making informed choices,” Frasier said. “These illustrious properties have been thoroughly tested and verified to ensure that they deliver luxury at every turn.” (PR)
