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.

Wildflower Hall is set on 22 acres of untouched pine and cedar woods, home to the flora that gives the hotel its name. Interiors feature Burmese teak panels, fireplaces, polished parquet floors protected by oriental rugs, and arched picture windows—all the better to take in your surroundings (which, did we mention, are at the top of a mountain, 8,250 feet above sea level?). Get an Ayurvedic treatment at the hotel’s top-notch spa, and finish up with a ritual aromatic bath overlooking the Himalayas.
