The Forbes Travel Guide announced the 2023 rankings for its top luxury hotels, restaurants, and spas this month. Ocean House, an Ocean House Collection property located on the scenic Rhode Island coast, received a Five-Star rating—the highest distinction for hotels. The same property was also recognized twice more for a five-star rating for its Ocean & Harvest Spa and sea-inspired eatery called the Coast.
The Ocean House is just one of 14 hotels across the globe to be recognized as a triple Forbes Five-Star property.
As the only independent global rating system for luxury accommodations and experiences, the Forbes Travel Guide analyzes properties based on 900 different standards to determine the list of exceptional destinations for travelers. Criteria for ranking includes a focus on items like the overall guest service experience, sustainability practices, complimentary features, and wellness facilities and offerings for visitors.
In addition to the Ocean House accolades, the Weekapaug Inn—also an Ocean House Collection property along the Rhode Island coast—received a five-star hotel recognition.
“This international recognition is a result of our team’s passion and commitment to the delivery of extraordinary service to our guests,” says Dant Hirsh, managing director for Ocean House Collection, in a prepared statement.
All the Ocean House Collection properties (The Ocean House, the Weekapaug Inn, and the Watch Hill Inn) are in South County, Rhode Island, and are home to the New England region’s most luxurious accommodations, eateries, and residences. Near the Atlantic Ocean, the properties are host to a collection of seaside experiences from hiking and dining to sailing and historic site seeing.
