Mobil Travel Guide has awarded Hong Kong and Macau with the most Mobil Five-Star rated hotels and spas in the company’s 50-year
history. The unveiling of the esteemed properties that made Mobil Travel Guide’s coveted Star ratings list coincides with the brand’s release of
their second international guide, Mobil Travel Guide: Hong Kong & Macau.
The brand awarded five new Mobil Five-Star hotels and three new Mobil Five-Star spas in Hong Kong and Macau to the coveted Mobil Travel
Guide Five-Star list, a list that consists of only sixty-nine properties globally. The newest Mobil Travel Guide Five-Star properties in Hong Kong
and Macau include: The Peninsula Hong Kong, the Landmark Mandarin Oriental, the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, The Four Seasons Hotel
Hong Kong, the Wynn Macau, The Mandarin Spa, The Peninsula Spa by ESPA and the Spa at Wynn Macau.
The honours were presented by Mobil Travel Guide and the Hong Kong Tourism Board at
a prestigious ceremony held last week at The Mandarin Oriental
Shane O’Flaherty, President and CEO of Mobil Travel Guide,
said, “The Mobil Travel Guide ratings reflect the best-of-the-best in hospitality
excellence and have long been considered one of the highest achievements in the hospitality and travel industry as well as a trusted resource
for millions of consumers looking to make more informed travel decisions. We spent over a year immersing ourselves into this region and while
the physical properties in both Hong Kong and Macau are extraordinarily impressive, it is ultimately their meticulous attention to service that
makes this region the ultimate Five-Star destination.”
Mobil Travel Guide’s second international title, Hong Kong & Macau, features details on the newest Mobil Star rated properties, as well as
in-depth information on this popular tourist destination, including how to prepare for your trip, where to stay, dine, and shop; key cultural
attractions; One, Two and Three Day itineraries, a comprehensive chapter on Hong Kong’s history; transportation information and useful tips
on navigating the area.
Beyond the standard “must see attractions”, Hong Kong
and Macau offers special “Inspector’s Tips” dispersed throughout the guide, which
provides indispensable insider details on how to make the most of the very best aspects of the city’s hotels, spas, restaurants and sights, all
uncovered by Mobil Travel Guide’s expert staff.
Much like Las Vegas, Macau offers more than just a great gambling experience. The Macau portion of this guide includes information on hotels,
resorts and casinos in the area as well as the best spas, shows, interesting festivals throughout the year, information on Macau’s 25 heritage
sites and a guide to the best shopping throughout the city.
Mobil Travel Guide: Hong Kong & Macau comes hot on the heels of the company’s first ever international guide, Mobil Travel Guide: Beijing,
which was released in May. Other international titles to be released in 2009 include Mobil Travel Guide: London (June), Mobil Travel Guide:
Singapore (July) and Mobil Travel Guide: Dublin (September). Mobil Travel Guide: Beijing was released this past year.
