The World's 50 Best Hotels 2023

LONDON — Alongside the inaugural list of The World’s 50 Best Hotels, which will be announced at a ceremony at the Guildhall, London on September 19, 50 Best will reveal the winners of a series of award categories designed to highlight outstanding properties and individuals across the travel industry.

The awards will reflect the best travel experiences collated from 580 anonymous voters – a mix of hoteliers, journalists and seasoned travellers – headed up by a group of Academy Chairs across nine regions globally.

The awards are:

  • Continental Awards – the highest-ranked hotel in each continent;
  • Nikka Best New Hotel – the highest-ranked hotel that has opened during the two-year voting window (May 2021 to May 2023);
  • Flor de Caña Eco Hotel – champions one hotel’s efforts towards sustainability and is independently audited by the Sustainable Restaurant Association;
  • The Lost Explorer Best Beach Hotel – awarded to the hotel placed highest on the list that’s within 20 meters of a beach;
  • Carlo Alberto Vermouth Best Boutique Hotel – awarded to the hotel placed highest on the list that fits all the criteria of a boutique property with fewer than 50 rooms and not part of a large group;
  • SevenRooms Icon Award – celebrates a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the hotel industry over the course of their career;
  • Art of Hospitality Award – all 580 voters are asked to name a property where they have received the single-best hospitality experience within the voting period, and the winner will be announced on August 22;
  • Lavazza One to Watch Award – granted to a hotel that currently sits just outside the top 50 list, but which 50 Best believes has the potential to break into the ranking. The winner will be announced September 5.

“These additional awards are designed to complement the 50 Best list and celebrate properties and people who are delivering industry-leading experiences,” says Mark Sansom, director of Content for The World’s 50 Best Hotels.
