Nüwa Manila at City of Dreams Manila once again received Five Stars in Forbes Travel Guide joining other Melco Resorts & Entertainment Limited’s properties that received a collective total of 85 stars across all its properties in the 2019 Forbes Travel Guide (FTG).
“It is with great pride and honor for Nüwa Manila to receive the prestigious Forbes Five-Star Award for the second consecutive year after 2018. This recognition reflects our colleagues’ hard work and unwavering commitment in creating luxury and signature experiences and delivering the highest standard of personalized service in all aspects, supporting the vision of Melco Resorts & Entertainment Chairman and CEO Mr. Lawrence Ho to make Melco a benchmark of luxury in the hospitality industry”, Kevin Benning, City of Dreams Manila’s Chief Operating Officer, said.
The Forbes Travel Guide, a global authority on luxury travel also recognized Hyatt Regency Manila, Nobu Hotel Manila, and Nüwa Spa Manila with Four-Star ratings, like last year. Overall, the FTG , whose independent rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas is well-respected as a premium ranking in the travel and hospitality industry, accorded thirteen Melco properties with Five-Stars, and five hotels with Four Stars – with a record-breaking total of 85 stars, the top number of stars received by any integrated resort operator in Macau and Asia.
In a separate statement, Mr. Lawrence Ho, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Melco Resorts & Entertainment said, “Attaining this level of recognition from the Forbes Travel Guide has tremendous significance to us as a company and to me personally.

I would like to express my deepest appreciation to every one of our hospitality professionals for their hard work dedicated to making Melco Asia’s leading integrated resort operator.”
