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.
Set in the fashionable Jardins district, and close to the wallet-busting shops of Rua Oscar Freire, the Fasano is a magnet for all that’s young and fresh in this South American city. To wit: The lobby, you’ll notice, is a popular meeting spot for local glitterati, though if that’s not quite your scene, the terrace at Nonno Ruggero restaurant, overlooking the neighborhood, is a better bet. Those exhausted by the hours of conversation will relish the spa on the top floor, which has a heated pool, two ofuro bathtubs, and Hans Wegner chaise—or they can retire to one of 60 spacious rooms or suites, and beds that have Egyptian cotton linens and goose-down pillows.
