SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS (February 23, 2016) - San Antonio’s acclaimed Mokara Hotel & Spa continues its reign as the city’s leader in luxury after once again receiving the prestigious Four-Star designation from Forbes Travel Guide, which recognized both the hotel and spa amongst the world’s best. Mokara Hotel is one of only 12 properties in Texas to receive the award, and Mokara Spa is one of only five in the state to be given a Four-Star rating. Both the hotel and spa are San Antonio’s only Four-Star recipients.

In order to achieve a Four-Star rating from Forbes Travel Guide, hotels require an exceptional attention to detail and an accommodating staff in a unique and distinctive setting. Four-Star spas are defined as being a wonderful experience in an inviting and serene environment with personalized service and again, a well-trained staff.

“We are truly honored to be awarded the Four Star designation.” said Rusty Wallace, area managing director of Mokara Hotel & Spa. “Our staff is dedicated to delivering exceptional service and pleasant memories in every interaction.  To have our efforts recognized, yet again, by Forbes Travel Guide is very rewarding.”

This year marks the 58th announcement of Forbes Star designations, the rating system that has been the gold standard in the hotel industry since 1958. All winners are showcased on, the exclusive online destination of the Forbes Travel-Guide Star-rated properties.

The complete 2016 Forbes Travel Guide honor roll includes over 650 hotels, restaurants and spas in the U.S., Canada, Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Macau and Singapore.
