Victoria from American Travel Blogger recommends this luxury hotel: “The best luxury hotel I ever stayed at was The Chedi in Andermatt, Switzerland. This hotel is a destination in itself – we were picked up by a chauffeur from the train station and whisked up into the mountains. Rooms are enormous, boasting an “Alpine chic meets Asian sleek” feel with fireplaces, warm woods, natural stone and velvet upholstery. Even though it was freezing cold, we sat outside on our balcony to admire the snowy scenery – it was magical.”

Ammatara Pura Pool Villas, Koh Samui, Thailand

Lucy Ruthnum, journalist, blogger and freelance writer at absolutelylucy.com loved these villas: “My recommendation is Ammatara Pura Pool Villas because if you ever wanted to feel like royalty, this is the perfect place for you. Get to experience travel as a Thai king or queen, staying in your own luxury private villa with a jacuzzi bath and private pool overlooking the ocean. The incredible service and amazing food will take travelling as you know it, to new levels of luxury.”

Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels – Tivoli, Doha, Quatar

Frank (bbqboy) said “We’re not luxury travelers – but our most recent luxury experience was staying at Souq Waqif Boutique Hotels.

As I say, we’re not luxury travelers, but last year we were flying Qatar Airways and on flights connecting through Doha they offer a free hotel stay on transits over 13 hours. We didn’t know what to expect and certainly didn’t expect 5 star luxury. The building is designed like a traditional mud building but is majestic and blends seamlessly with the architecture of the old town. The rooms were luxurious with wooden furniture, Arabic carpets, and beautiful textiles. We were able to order room service (despite it being Ramadan), had a great nap, and spent a few hours walking around Doha before checking out for our outgoing flight. Luxury is always best appreciated when you don’t have to pay for it :)”

The Phoenix Resort, Ambergris Caye, Belize

Micki Kosman from TheBarefootNomad.com said: “My favorite luxury resort is The Phoenix Resort in Ambergris Caye, Belize. It has a lot of obvious perks, from an oceanfront location, to a great restaurant, to luxurious rooms. The main reason it’s my favorite is because it’s the kind of resort where you feel instantly at home. The Phoenix manages to be luxurious, comfortable, and elegant at the same time. It’s the kind of place where you feel completely comfortable eating nachos poolside with your kids, or dressing up for a dinner out in their on-site restaurant.

Modern apartments at The Phoenix have kitchens, separate bedrooms, washing machines, whirlpool tubs, free iPads and free Wi-Fi, and all have sea views. There’s a poolside bar, boats and bikes for hire, and free yoga classes and water sports.”

Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea, Sowayma, Jordan

“My favorite hotel experience so far in all my travels has been the Kempinski Dead Sea, Jordan.

It was the most luxurious hotel I had ever stayed in, with the pristine pools and easy access directly to the Dead Sea. I was so enchanted with the palm trees, bright pops of orange decor, and the glittering chandeliers all over the place that I spent one afternoon just walking around taking it all in. My favorite moment was watching the sunset over the Dead Sea from giant bowl-shaped infinity pool. Few moments top that one!”

Aydinli Cave Hotel, Goreme, Turkey

David, the man behind davidsbeenhere.com website loved his exeprience in Cappadocia. He said: “My recommendation for the best luxury hotel in the world is the Aydinli Cave House Hotel, an incredible, family-run hotel in Göreme in the Cappadocia region of Turkey. The hotel is carved into the local cave system, which makes it one of the most visually striking hotels in the world.

The caves make for gorgeous, unforgettable accommodations and keep the rooms cool during the summer and warm during the winter. And the hospitality there is among the best I’ve experienced in my eleven years of travel.

The hotel is only a five-minute walk to the center of town and a quick, 15-minute drive to all of the major attractions around Cappadocia. I recommend a 3-day, 3-nigh stay there at the very least to see everything Cappadocia has to offer.”

The Singular Santiago, Santiago, Chile

Bianca Rods, an American expat living in Santiago, Chile writes: “There is no hotel in the world that quite defines the meaning of contemporary luxury than the Singular Hotel in Santiago, Chile. This boutique hotel located in the bustling center of the city is comprised of standard and suite-style rooms, and also hosts an onsite fitness center and spa.

The rooftop lounge is a landmark after-hours destination, with stunning views of the Andes mountains and Cerro San Cristobal. The service and staff are incredibly accommodating, and are well-versed with the major tourist attractions and landmarks of Santiago. It’s one of my favorite places to stay in whenever I’m in Santiago, and can’t wait to plan my next stay there!”

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Orlando, Florida, USA

Matthew from escapingreality.co.uk said: “The Animal Kingdom Resort at Walt Disney World is by far the most incredible hotel that I’ve ever stayed at. Its one o only a few hotels globally where you can wake up each morning to a view of Giraffes, Zebra and Ostriches.

It’s not just the outside though, the design of the hotels interior is absolutely incredible. I’ve never seen such an amazing hotel lobby, the amount of detail right throughout the hotel is simply unbelievable.

The resort also features two incredible restaurants one of which is an African buffet with the most delicious food I’ve ever tasted. The other restaurant, Boma, is a fine dining restaurant with more exotic African choices.

If you ever get the chance to visit this hotel then be sure to jump at every opportunity!”

Landgoed Duin & Kruidberg, Santpoort-Noord, Netherland

Marcela from fotostrasse.com said: “I choose this one because it was the first ‘castle’ I’ve spent a few nights. The restaurant downstairs is fabulous and the surroundings are ultra-romantic.

This hotel is chic, luxurious and in the middle of one of the nicest countryside landscapes the country has to offer. A bike ride around is a must!

Fotostrasse had the pleasure to stay there back in 2016 and I still remember how great the whole experience was. It is truly escaping from real life.”

Finikas Hotel, Naxos, Greece

“The best hotel we have stayed at in Europe is by far The Lisboans in Lisbon, Portugal. This hotel was created in an apartment-hotel style, and the story behind its birth is fascinating. The building was built from an old factory that was run-down and revamped and refurbished only three years ago. Now, the hotel is intimate and absolutely charming, with touches of home, touches of Portuguese hospitality and beautiful stylish pieces in every room.

One of the most memorable parts of our stay is the delivery of fresh bread and orange juice in the morning. The hotel staff tells you to hang a canvas tote on your door, and by morning, you’ll find the fresh breakfast goods in it. This is a wonderful way to enjoy a Portuguese breakfast in bread and by hardly moving a finger!” said Becca & Dan from halfhalftravel.com

JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach, Singapore

“While you get a couple of infinity pools of hotels around Singapore, the 180-degree view of Singapore’s CBD and Esplanade 18 floors high from JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach is totally unblocked, making it a picturesque spot.

The very fact that the property it’s on, JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach, makes it all the more special. The iconic building is easily recognized from far. Designed by designer Philippe Starck and architects Foster + Partners, the canopy is inspired by the natural form and function of a tree. This floats across the entire structure to filter sunlight, solar glare and channel wind breezes into the public spaces – quite an ingenious design, if I may say so.”

This was Isabel‘s experience at JW Marriott Hotel Singapore.

Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, Hawai

Rick from midliferoadtrip.tv said: “I love the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. The resort offers a “Complete Suite Experience” that includes round trip airport service, private in-suite dining, breakfast, specialty flowers, massages, and complimentary use of cabanas and an outrigger canoe! Three of Maui’s top-rated restaurants are located in the resort and the infinity pool is probably the best I’ve experienced anywhere in the world. Oh, and did I mention that being located in a tropical paradise makes for some amazing scenery?”

Eyja Guldsmeden Hotel, Reykjavik, Iceland

“The Eyja Guldsmeden was my favorite place to stay in Iceland. It has gorgeous décor, a very environmentally-friendly focus, and an incredible breakfast spread. They offer bikes for their guests if they’d rather cycle instead of walk around town. Among the most notable things is their breakfast spread. From fresh smoked salmon to the endless pastry options, everything is carefully selected and it shows! The hotel has also been designed for comfort, with elegant and sustainable touches all around, like their eco-friendly toiletries and luxurious canopy bed.” said Jasmine from jasminealley.com.

Hotel Mandarin Oriental, New York, USA

Out of all of New York, the best one to Tammy Staley from Midlife Milestones is the Mandarin Oriental. The location is central to all things New York, central park is just across the street and the subway is but a minute walk. I love the view of the Hudson River through the floor to ceiling windows. The view alone makes each room spectacular, but when you add in the fantastic staff and amenities you have a complete luxury hotel. Use the one site spa for some much-needed me-time along with the soaking tubs in each room. They provided everything I could have possibly wanted while I was away from home.

Borne Suites, Palma de Mallorca, Spain

“I stayed at Borne Suites said George from letterstobarbara.com. I think that the accommodation is excellent for several reasons. First of all, it’s located in the middle of Palma – from some rooms you can even have a view of the impressive Cathedral. Apart from that, the room is spacious, the furniture new and you have a home feeling. The rooms are located in a lively area, which means that you won’t have to search for long for a place to eat or drink. I can’t recommend enough staying at Borne Suites: everything is within walking distance and you can always reach the seaside in two minutes.”

Hotel Pan Pacific Seattle, Seattle, USA

“It’s a sleek boutique hotel with the most amazing beds I’ve ever slept on (Hypnos beds warranted by the Queen of England), shoji-style bathroom screens, 24-hour room service, a bar fridge stocked with local wine, beer and sodas (I love the natural wine movement in Oregon), breathtaking views of Puget Sound and the Space Needle and eco-friendly motion-sensor heating. I also love that partially used amenities are donated to a local women’s shelter. It’s luxury in terms of price, too, but worth the splurge.” said Amie about the Pan Pacific Hotel in Seattle.

Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

“Shaped to resemble the sail of a ship, the Burj Al Arab Jumeirah is one of the world’s only 7 star hotels. With the world’s largest fleet of Rolls Royces, 24 karat gold ipods, butler service, exquisite dining, and a rooftop helipad, spending an evening here is no doubt a pricey affair, but worth every penny if you’re looking for the ultimate luxurious splurge.”

Amankila, Bali, Indonesia

“The Aman Resorts always deliver when it comes to the ultimate in luxury and hospitality and Amankila is no different. This expansive 5-star property sits on the edge of the cliffs in a remote area of Eastern Bali and features three infinity pools cascading towards the ocean as the grand focal point of the hotel.

The property also sits above a private beach where guests can lay out or get out on the water via sailboat or paddle board and then enjoy a private candlelit dinner on the beach to round out the day. Staying at Amankila truly feels like a hidden secret on an island where tourism has had a large effect on the local surroundings. Instead at Amankila, you feel nestled into the landscape far away from the overtourism that Bali has become synonymous with. I can’t recommend this gorgeous hotel enough.” said Michelle from livelikeitstheweekend.com
