The Top 25 Hotels in the World – How Many Have You Stayed In?

TripAdvisor released their Travellers Choice 2013 list of the Top 25 Hotels in the world today, and I while I am a little sad to see that I have never stayed in any of the world’s top hotels (on this list), I am happy to say that I have added them all onto my bucket list and hope to be knocking on their doors sometime soon!

I absolutely love staying in luxury hotels, and while its indulgent (and sometimes expensive!), there is nothing like returning from a day on the beach, a full day safari, or a Singapore shopping trip to find a fluffy bathrobe, a pair of slippers, and a super king size bed with more pillows than makes sense!

So without further ado, there are the top 25 hotels in the world today as voted for by TripAdvisor’s Travellers Choice, and if you have been to any of them, please let us know if you think they deserve a place on this list!

  1. Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’Upulehu, Kailua-Kona, Hawaii
  2. Cape Grace, Cape Town, South Africa (We’ve been in the foyer… does that count?)
  3. Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel & Thalasso, Cascais, Portugal (Is this really better than Villa Joya?)
  4. Rudding Park Hotel, Harrogate, United Kingdom (Hurrah for GB!)

    Sadly, I’ve only been to two of the cities that have the best hotels and when I was there, I didn’t stay in these accommodations. But then, there’s always tomorrow.

    1. That’s right Jane! You must be off on your cruise soon? I hope you have a wonderful trip!

    Agree to you. While I try to keep this list fresh in my mind (at least a few of them), I like many other wish to visit the one from my country India that made it to the list. Also, i notice Four Seasons have collectively bagged the ranks.
