  1. I really like to stay at Mandarin Oriental, however I have only stayed with them in Bangkok, Taipei and KL.
    Which MO is your favourite? The ones in Bodrum and Marrakesh look very good.

  2. Hi, I think there are few missing names from the list! Worth mentioning: Baccarat, Baglioni, Dusit, Gran Meliá, Quorvus Collection, Rocco Forte Hotels, Steigenberger, and Groups: Relais & Châteaux, Small Luxury Hotels, Leading Hotels of the World and last but not least: Design Hotels.
    Thank you for the incredible reviews and lists that you put together. love it x

  3. I’m surprised &beyond isn’t on there, keen follower of Conde Nast and they featured heavily in their Top 50 2017 resorts and The Gold List of all time favourite CN resorts.

    The list you have presented is amazing, it is now the basis of a lifetime bucket list!

    Thank you so much for the source!

  4. Oetker is a wonderful group of hotels- Bristol Paris and Hotel du Cap Eden Roc in Cap D’Antibes are among the best in the world. Also, Dorchester hotels are top notch, especially the Beverly Hills Hotel, Bel Air, the redone Eden and the Maurice.
