About Time: You Discovered the 5 Best Hotels in the WorldBy Angelica Malin
TripAdvisor compiled a ranking of the best hotels in the world based on the opinions expressed by its users. This list is therefore not based on the opinions of professionals, critics, journalists, but on the feedback from real customers. People who can truly evaluate the costs vs services ratio, thus creating this (actual, at the moment) ranking of the 5 best hotels in the world:
The Oberoi Vanyavilas, Ranthambhore, Rajasthan, India
India is a country where you can have a great time travelling and doing stuff for fun. From elite hotels, world-known restaurants to a lot of online entertainment like playing casino games online. Note that although PayPal casinos are now a trend, they are still not available in India. However it may be, It’s the perfect destination to pack your bags, turn your mind off, and go on an amazing journey.
Less than ten minutes away from the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve, the Oberoi Vanyavilas offers its guests the opportunity to see the Bengal Tigers at liberty and, at the same time, to enjoy every kind of service of a 5-star hotel.
Spread over twenty acres of gardens, The Oberoi Vanyavilas is rich in flora and fauna. From the top of the observation tower, guests can enjoy a panoramic view of the adjoining jungle and can admire the wildlife while sipping champagne.
People looking for luxury dining will not be disappointed by the main restaurant, which offers a rich menu, featuring authentic Rajasthani specialities and continental dishes. Traditional bonfires enrich its unique environment in winter and live folk musicians and traditional dancers all year round.
Baros Maldives, Maldives
Baros Maldives is a private island with a turquoise water lagoon and – of course – white sand beaches. It is located in the central-southern part of the North Male Atoll, easily reachable with 25 minutes of fast hull from the capital Male and the international airport of the Maldives. The structure provides luxury fast boats for the transfer from the airport every day, 24 hours a day. At the airport, a person in charge awaits the guests to welcome them and lead them to the island. Even the luggage is transported and delivered to the guests’ villa – yes, there are only villas here – immediately after arrival.
The accommodations consist of 45 villas on the beach and 30 villas on the water, where privacy and comfort reign for an elegant and natural luxury. All are beautifully designed with sandstone and wood in order to be in harmony with the natural environment. From the private terrace, guests have direct access to the beautiful lagoon, either by the beach or by the wooden steps, and many also offer private pools.
The resort also has three restaurants, one with international cuisine, one more luxurious, where you can enjoy refined dishes. And the third restaurant, with a more classic gastronomic proposal.
Riad Kheirredine, Marrakech, Morocco
The Riad hotel is a house built around an internal garden. It’s the perfect place for guests to escape from the crowd and the rush of everyday life, while still remaining in the central area of the city. Riad Kheirredine combines the models, colours, and the real spirit of Morocco with contemporary Italian design. Why is that? Because this is a creation of two Italians, Marina Guarena and Giuliano Brugnatelli, who met in Morocco, fell in love with the place and decided to found this amazing hotel. Like the whole style of the hotel, also the rooms and suites are a hybrid of Moroccan and Italian design, offering maximum comfort and relaxation.
Enjoying tea in one of the spectacular salons of the courtyard with Moroccan stuccos, reading a book for the poolside sofas, the Riad is an experience that gives the feeling of being at home. The resort also offers a spectacular terrace at the top of the building, where it is possible to enjoy the breathtaking city views.
The Upper House, Hong Kong
Located in Hong Kong, The Upper House, with 49 floors, was designed by architect Andre Fu, one of Asia’s hottest designers. The hotel’s 117 studios and suites are very spacious, with natural materials, and beautiful modern bathrooms. Two suites, in particular, are noteworthy:
- The so-called “Upper”: It has a size of 114 square meters, with a corner sofa, a desk in front of the wall-mounted windows with a breathtaking view and a bathtub in limestone.
- The “Penthouse”: A 182 square meters penthouse (therefore its name) wrapped in modern and refined luxury with a view that embraces the entire metropolis of Hong Kong.
This hotel is particularly eco-friendly: for private hire, hybrid cars are available, and the food served is mostly organic. Moreover, even the check-out is paperless.
Belmond Palacio Nazarenas, Cusco, Peru
This Top 5 luxury hotel is a small resort with only 55 suites, a spa, an outdoor pool, and trendy restaurants. The Signature Suites are the most exclusive rooms in the resort. Guests can also find oxygen to help combat altitude sickness – do not forget that this luxury hotel is collocated at 3,399 meters up in the Peruvian Andes.
This hotel is simply a dream monument, and it encloses history and mysticism. It also has the only heated outdoor pool in Cusco. All the terraces and patios are adorned with native flowers and aromatic herbs, besides having a beautiful chapel, among other innumerable services.
