  22. Constance Prince Maurice (Mauritius)
  23. O’Gallery Premier Hotel & Spa (Vietnam)
  24. The Nantucket Hotel & Resort (Massachusetts)
  25. AYADA Maldives (Maldives)

Unfortunately, there are no hotels on the lists that are in a major points program (the Mandapa does not offer award nights in the Marriott Bonvoy program).

On the list, Costa Rica took 2 spots, Italy took 2, the US has 2, Mexico has 2, and Vietnam has 2. If you want to stay at a top hotel, the number 2 hotel, Viroth’s Hotel in Cambodia, dropped one spot from 2018 and is available for under $150 per night! For a country like Cambodia, that is a lot of money for a hotel but it makes it nice to experience one of the top hotels in the entire world!

The Ikos Oceania, the top all-inclusive hotel in the world

I love that the Ikos Oceania in Greece made the list, partially because that is just 45 minutes away from where I currently am (so I need to go try it out!), because it is not an island hotel, and because it made the #1 spot for the all-inclusive hotels in the world for this year! Great job, Ikos!

  • It’d be interesting to know what criteria they use to arrive at these conclusions. The list just seems a bit odd. For instance, 2 hotels in Siem Reap seems a bit much and I would have thought that London or Paris might have made a showing. I’m sure that the hotels listed are lovely. I’d just like to know how they got ranked so well.

    • I agree. I know they weight it heavily on their reviewers section but I also have read before about how those can be manipulated as well. I think they would also require a place like London to have a really spectacular rating/reason to rank it since there are so many high-scale hotels in those cities already.
