If we can’t be on the cover of Forbes Magazine (Hey! Don’t give up on us yet!), we’ll settle for an article.
Recently we have been getting some media features, and we’d be lying if we said we aren’t proud of an article in Forbes that features our gorgeous – if we do say so ourselves – resort.
TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, has released its eagerly-anticipated Travellers Choice Awards for the Best Hotels of the World based on the millions of reviews and opinions collected during the last year from travelers worldwide – and it features many surprises.
Now in its 17th year, the awards determined by an algorithm based on all reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor users, are divided into nine categories including Top Hotels Overall, Luxury, Bargain, Small, Best Service, B&Bs and Inns, Romance, Family and All-Inclusive.
The total number acknowledged amounts to 7,812 properties in 94 countries.
Sounds like a lot? TripAdvisor fields an average of 390 million unique visitors a month with more than 280 new reviews posted on the site every minute. Hence the big numbers.
The winners of the Travellers Choice Awards vary from a luxury hotel built inside ancient caves in Cappadocia, Turkey, and a Riad in Marrakech, Morocco, to an island resort in Belize, a spa in the Austrian Alps and deluxe suites in Spain’s Canary Islands.
The #1 hotel in the list of 2019’s “Top 25 hotels in the world” is the Tulemar Resort & Beach, located in Manuel Antonio, Quepos, Costa Rica, and described as “a 33 acre resort with a collection of over 50 accommodations ranging from rustic bungalows to luxurious private villas, surrounded by jungle and wildlife: you’ll see monkeys, sloths and exotic birds throughout the property and on our hiking trails.”
