The Best Hotels in the World
October 17, 2017
More than 300,000 of our trusted Travelers voted in this year’s Readers’ Choice Awards, sharing tales—and tips—from their vacations in Santorini, or weekends spent at Italian palazzos in Ho Chi Minh City. Get ready: These are the 50 best hotels in the world, say our readers, where service, style, good eats, and sublime views make for a memorable stay.
Maybe you think this is just another Santorini hotel, with the same white-washed Cycladic architecture, vaulted ceilings, and views of the azure waters as its worthy neighbors—but you’re wrong. To start, the hotel is carved into the side of a volcanic cliff, and has spellbinding views of the caldera below, but that’s hardly all: It’s also a foodie paradise, where gourmet meals are tantamount to setting in importance. At Elea, the in-house restaurant, dishes range from the starkly traditional, like the creamy, risotto-like trahanoto,to the Aegan-inspired, with a twist, like the rockfish tartar. It’s hard to go wrong—just don’t miss the Pavlova, served with Rose ice cream.
