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.
This is what they mean when they say “French Riviera glamour.” Set on 17 acres of landscaped gardens, on a peninsula overlooking the Mediterranean, this visually stunning hotel from the Belle Époque era is perfect for a romantic getaway. (Fair warning, though: It’s a bit remote, so you definitely need a car to get around.) The marbled lobby, aside from being beautiful, has a rotunda designed by Gustave Eiffel. Adding to the hotel’s pedigree are reproductions of artwork by artists who have stopped by, including Matisse, Chagall, and Picasso, lining the beige and white rooms, though one of the more fun details is the glass funicular in the garden, which will take you down to the swimming pool.
