According to the 2019 Travellers’ Choice Awards, Tulemar Bungalows & Villas in Costa Rica’s Manuel Antonio National Park has been named the world’s best hotel, a ranking system based on comments posted by the users of TripAdvisor.
With 33 acres of rainforest and a private beach, Tulemar Bungalows & Villas offers travellers a chance to connect with nature. Some rooms look out over its gardens, others have views of the sea.
The world’s second best hotel is the Hotel Belvedere in Riccione in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. The four-star establishment, which offers views over the Adriatic, also tops the Travellers’ Choice ranking for European hotels.
Placed third in the global ranking, Viroth’s Hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia, is also the Travelers’ Choice overall winner in Asia.
