The Four Seasons luxury hotel & resort group just carries on breaking records. Not only does its flagship Asia property hold more Michelin stars than any hotel in the world, but Four Seasons also holds more culinary honours than any other hospitality group. The Toronto-based company is basking in the accolades handed down by the world’s foremost authority in haute cuisine.

As it currently stands, Four Seasons holds 27 Michelin stars across 19 of its international restaurants. An unprecedented eight of these stars are held at the Four Seasons Hong Kong.

The Michelin Guide for France 2021 was the latest edition of the gastronomic bible to heap plaudits on Four Seasons properties. The Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris retained the maximum three stars for Le Cinq – under the leadership of Chef Christian Le Squer. It also holds single stars for its “sustainable” restaurant Le George (Chef Simone Zanoni) and L’Orangerie (Chef Alan Taudon). The Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris is the only “palace” hotel in Europe to hold five stars.

Elsewhere in France, the Grand-Hôtel du Cap-Ferrat, A Four Seasons Hotel has earned a single star for Le Cap – a triumph for Chef Yoric Tieche and Les Chalets du Mont d'Arbois, A Four Seasons Hotel in Megève retained its star for Prima – which is credited to the outrageous talent of Chef Nicolas Hensinger. Formerly a pupil of the late, great masterchef Benoit Violier of L’Hotel de Ville de Crissier in Switzerland, Hensinger has the pedigree to climb to the very peak of gastronomic excellence.

The latest Michelin Guide Hong and Macau saw Zi Yat Heen at Four Seasons Hotel Macau retain its single star, but the “star” of the show is still its Hong Kong sister-property. The Chinese haute cuisine restaurant - Lung King Heen retained its three stars – a triumph for the affable Chef Tak, Chef Guillaume Galliot’s French dining experience Caprice still boasts three stars – with the Sushi Saito Japanese restaurant holds two stars for Chef Masashi Kubota.

Despite stars in its restaurants from London to Los Angeles and Seoul to Singapore, the Four Seasons strives to offer the same level of brilliance in its restaurants as it does in its service and guestrooms.
