Of the best hotels in the world
George V, Carlyle, Cipriani, Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong, Sandy Lane … an extraordinary property that did not make the last piece we read like someone else’s hot hotel list. But here at Telegraph Travel, we argue that absence makes the list stronger. Starting with a clean whiteboard, our writing team, luxury travel writers, hotel specialists and destination experts explore the world to offer you only the best. We don’t accept the status quo, great women don’t enjoy their usual place on the table and we don’t add new properties just for fresh reasons.
What do these hotels have in common? First, everyone gets their place. Every hotel has been tried, tested, evaluated and compared, and this is only to make a long list. Second, they offer something extraordinary: location, service, style, soul, design, isolation, structure or romance. But above all, these are the traits that will affect your feelings. Life must be better at check-in. Welcome to the Telegraph Travel guide to the best hotels on Earth.
