This year, the World’s Best Awards survey ended on March 2, shortly before many travelers were forced to become stay-at-home due to COVID-19. The results reflect the experience of tourists before the pandemic. We hope that this year’s laureates will inspire you for further trips — when they are possible.
World’s Best Awards – based on the impressions of the most experienced researchers in the world, so their choice of hotels and resorts is a reflection of the breadth of knowledge and taste. In other words, it’s a great combination. This year’s list of the world’s Top 100 hotels spans six continents and includes everything from safari lodges in the Serengeti and Indian palaces in Rajasthan to glitzy high-rise hotels in London and Tokyo. What unites them all is the desire for excellent service, excellent location and amenities that distinguish these hotels from all others.
Every year, as part of the World’s Best Awards survey, Travel + Leisure magazine invites readers to rate travel experiences around the world — share their opinions about the best hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise liners, spas, airlines and much more. Hotels were evaluated according to their equipment, location, service, food and total cost. Hotels were classified as urban or resort hotels depending on their location and amenities.
We invite you to get to know 5 magnificent hotels that are rightfully included in this famous list.
