Eminence Tops 2016 Forbes Four & Five Star Spa Ratings

Every year, Forbes Travel Guide reveals its Global Star Ratings - their list of the world’s finest and most prestigious spas, hotels and restaurants from around the world. We’re honored and thrilled to announce that 36 Éminence Partner Spas in the United States reigned victorious in being named in the Four & Five Star categories!

With a team of professional inspectors evaluating more than 500 criteria, “only properties that meet our hospitality standards — the most stringent in the industry — achieve a Five Star, Four Star or Recommended rating,” states Forbes Travel.

We’re truly delighted to see such a large number of our partner spas receiving this esteemed recognition from Forbes Global Star Ratings. Congratulations to all of our Éminence partners on this exceptional world-class success!
