"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things."
Henry Miller

Ultimate Hotel Collection

There are destinations that shape a hotel, then there are resorts that define a destination. This list is exclusively for the properties in the latter category. As a general rule of thumb, the unique overnight experiences start at US$500 per night (but this is in no way one of the criteria), and they are the places that really inspire the wanderlust in us. Quite simply, this list is exclusively for the best luxury hotels in the world.

These are the heritage landmarks where if only the walls could talk, oh the stories they could tell of the individuals whose lives spin an intriguing tapestry of history. These are the places commandeering private beaches or entire islands, where you are invited to retreat from the world and get reacquainted with mother nature. These are the luxury travel experiences where bespoke attention and butler service is the norm — these are the absolute best in destination.
