Forbes Travel Guide added 22 new hotels added to the five-star list this year that includes 175 properties from around the world.

“While the 2017 group of winners is the most diverse in terms of size, location and style, one overarching theme that ties them together is that each delivers its own distinctive experience. New Five-Star hotels range from the brand-new fresh and inventive Faena Hotel Miami Beach and the recently restored grand dame Ritz Paris to over-the-top all-suite hotel The Ritz-Carlton, Macau,” Forbes said in a press release.

Also on the 59th annual list were four repeat Miami-Dade winners.

In the restaurant category, Brickell sushi restaurant NAOE made the list again this year with five stars.

In all, eight hotels in Florida earned five stars, including the Ritz-Carlton, Naples; Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa and Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach.

This year’s awards were Forbes’ most diverse, with accolades for hotels in 20 new destinations and 38 new properties joining the list with top honors. The awards signal another year of success for area hotels after a decades-long dry spell that ended in 2013 when the Mandarin and Acqualina earned five stars.

Faena Miami Beach

Forbes Travel Guide’s annual hotel awards celebrated inventiveness this year — so it’s no surprise it extended its five-star distinction to the wildly singular Faena Hotel Miami Beach.
