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.

Dinner in a two-person cabana that seems to float above the pool; beds adorned in Egyptian cotton sateen linens; a stretch of private beachfront. At this towering complex on Jumeirah, you’re liable to feel like royalty, even without a title. Book one of the Waldorf Astoria’s signature “Unforgettable Experiences,” which, in this case, include a three-night stay, a couples’ massage, a hot air balloon ride, and a camel ride that culminates in a desert dinner for two. Even if you’re feeling less ambitious, there’s still plenty to enjoy—may we suggest Afternoon Tea at the Peacock Alley lounge, overlooking the gardens?
