Long Bay, Anguilla
(February 12, 2020) QUINTESSENCE HOTEL—A TROPICAL GRAND MANSION has once again earned a Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Rating, making it the highest rated hotel on the Caribbean island of Anguilla in the British West Indies.  Forbes Travel Guide is the only independent, global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants and spas. Quintessence is one of the latest additions to the travel guide that has been the gold standard in the hospitality industry since 1958.

“This year’s winners, as always, exemplify the very highest standards in hospitality,” said Flip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “It is difficult to earn a Forbes Travel Guide rating, and all our Star-Rated winners have shown how incredibly deserving they are of their accolades by demonstrating sheer dedication in their passion for service. We congratulate them all.”

A Forbes Inspector described Quintessence as “architecturally stunning,” noting “luxury is in the details,” and “you’ll be pampered at this intimate manor.” To read Quintessence Hotel’s complete listing, visit ForbesTravelGuide.com.

Quintessence opened in January 2018, and quickly earned accolades usually reserved for more established properties.  Q Hotel Anguilla is the newest Relais & Châteaux boutique hotel in the Caribbean, overlooking the white sand beaches of Long Bay, with nine lavish suites, a five-star restaurant, two bars, a Wine Spectator award-winning cellar, a wellness spa, infinity pool, fitness center, tennis court, yoga pavilion, boutique, state-of-the-art business suite, and brand new Q Art Gallery, which opened December, 2019.

“Quintessence Hotel is unlike any other hotel in the Caribbean, period,” said Quintessence Owner Geoffrey Fieger, a nationally-known trial lawyer from Detroit, Michigan. “This award reflects the hard work of our talented staff, who truly care about everyone who stays at The Q. The Q is the best boutique hotel in the world.”
