The Forbes Travel Guide Star Ratings list is considered one of the foremost authorities of the world’s finest luxury hotels, spas and restaurants. Scored using a proprietary algorithm that weighs service at 75% and quality of the property at 25%, the Star Ratings guide follows exacting standards that focus on graciousness, thoughtfulness and a sense of personalized service to craft a list of Five-Star, Four-Star and Recommended sites.

This is the first year the Forbes Travel Guide inspectors surveyed Kuala Lumpur, adding three new Malaysian hotels to its list of 1,609 properties, which also includes Abu Dhabi, Amsterdam, Dubai, Madrid, Prague and Vienna for the first time.

As Kuala Lumpur debuts on the annual Forbes Travel Guide Star Ratings survey for the first time, Resorts World Genting proved its excellence with two accolades in the 2018 list, out of only three Malaysian hotels cited. The flagship Genting Grand Hotel at Resorts World Genting was honored with a coveted 4-star rating, the only Malaysian hotel to do so, while Maxims Hotel at Resorts World Genting gained a ‘Recommended’ citation.

Maxims Hotel at Resorts World Genting received a Recommendation, requiring an average score of 70-79%. Forbes Travel Guide inspectors opined that ‘if Resorts World Genting is considered an out-of-this-world vacationing experience… Maxim’s Genting might be its brightest star.’ Calling it the resort’s ‘most exclusive address’, the inspectors were particularly impressed by the VIP-only suites on the 15th to 17th floor, conceptualized by Malaysian design firm DesignStream, and the trio of swanky apartments on the 18th floor with their lush vertical gardens, art, designer furniture and sophisticated interiors. The e18hteen restaurant, adjoining the sleek indoor swimming pool, also enthralled inspectors.
