Tripadvisor reveals the world’s best hotels

SINGAPORE, 10 May 2022 – Tripadvisor announced Tuesday the winners of its annual Travellers’ Choice Awards for Hotels for 2022.

Following the early 2022 releases of the Best of the Best Destinations and Beaches, this latest community-powered ranking reveals the top hotels worldwide just ahead of the busy summer travel season.

Six Senses Laamu, Olhuveli Island, Maldives.

Now in its 20th year, the 2022 Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards are based on traveller reviews and ratings posted on Tripadvisor over the 12-month period from 1 January 2021 through to 31 December 31, 2021.

The 2022 awards include 11 subcategories of accommodations, including three brand new ones: Out of the Ordinary Hotels, Hotels on the Water, and Mountain Resorts & Lodges. These subcategories are based on a variety of different factors – from hotel type to location and even the age of the property.

“We know there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to travel planning. Some travellers are looking for unique stays – ranging from cave hotels to overwater bungalows – while others are looking for a quaint B&B,” said Tripadvisor chief commercial officer Kanika Soni. “No matter what type of trip you are looking for, this year’s Travellers’ Choice Awards – with winners spanning six continents and 90 countries – showcase the top recommendations from other travellers.”

The No. 1 Top Hotel worldwide for 2022 is Tulemar Bungalows & Villas in Costa Rica. This jungle resort is perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Consistently ranking in the Best of the Best Awards, Tulemar is frequently called an “amazing stay in paradise” by its guests.
