The worlds’ best boutique hotels are revelead


Honouring boutique hotels from Mykonos to Okinawa, and shortlisted by a panel of trailblazing travel experts, the Awards reveal the very best places to visit in 2022.

LONDON - The winners of the Boutique Hotel Awards 2021 - the official wanderlust hot-list for unique stays - are announced.  Honouring boutique hotels from Mykonos to Okinawa, and shortlisted by a panel of trailblazing travel experts, the Awards reveal the very best places to visit in 2022.

World’s Best Beach or Coastal Hotel
Hyakuna Garan, Okinawa, Japan
The hotel has actually brought the surroundings in; a huge open-air courtyard with three banyans grows through the centre, corridors looking onto a mossy cave with a 7-metre Buddha statue, and a huge tatami zen room opening out onto an ocean view.” 

World’s Best City Hotel
Corpo Santo Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal
Corpo Santo makes it very hard to leave. With a complimentary welcome massage and fresh fruit platter, soundproof windows, and Portuguese design on every floor, this hotel has set a trend for a flawless guest experience.”

World’s Best Chic Design Hotel
Hotel TwentySeven, Amsterdam, Netherlands
The Netherlands’ only ‘Six Star’ hotel is infused with dark, decadent glamour - and a genie-like butler serving each suite.”

World’s Best Classic Hotel
Relais & Chateaux Hotel Heritage, Bruges, Belgium
In the heart of Bruges, Hotel Heritage really breathes an easy elegance. Large windows and high ceilings give a feeling of light and space; the traditional rooms are complemented by gadgets such as Bose sound systems, iPads, and automatic lighting.” 

World’s Best Culinary Hotel
Velaa Private Island, Maldives
If you decide not to inform your private butler where you are going (spa; beach; golf; tennis), he will still somehow magically show up when you are done, waiting to give you a buggy ride to your villa. Team members remember your breakfast order, and recommend wine or dishes they think you will enjoy. Velaa is pretty much flawless.” 

World’s Best Inspired Design Hotel
Ultima Gstaad, Gstaad, Switzerland
Ultima is a haven of unapologetic excess. Its design is faithful to traditional Swiss chalet style, updated with state-of-the-art technology and indulgent touches like Bvlgari toiletries, welcome gifts, and a spa with its own snow machine.”

World’s Best Honeymoon Hideaway
Alissachni Mykonos, Mykonos, Greece
I felt that all I had to do was think of something I wanted and in two seconds a staff member was standing next to me asking if I would like a cocktail, a water, an iced coffee, etc... The hotel has 180 degree views from its position on the cliff... this hotel oozes romance.”

World’s Best Romantic Retreat
Ca Maria Adele, Venezia, Italy
Not only does it have its own private water entrance - arrive by boat and you feel like you’re in a Bond movie - but it’s directly opposite the stunning Santa Maria della Salute, and so wonderfully quiet that it feels like your own cosy, private corner of the city.” 

World’s Best Sustainable Hotel
Svart Hotel, Norway
Svart is not just a hotel, it’s a project in sustainability. The world’s first ‘energy-positive’ hotel aims to generate 160% of its energy. A circular and glass-fronted building perched on the waters of the Holandsfjorden Fjord, it will also have an education centre.” 

World’s Best New Hotel
Hotel Barriere Le Carl Gustaf, St. Barths
A haven of understated luxury, this hotel was designed to fit in with the unpretentious style of the island. As well as impeccable service, guests can expect incredible food from the restaurant run by Michelin-starred Pierre Gagniere.”

World’s Best Wellness Spa
Naturhotel Forsthofgut, Leogang, Austria
With a natural, alpine aesthetic, this hotel creates a feeling of calm and tranquility.  There’s a beautiful natural swimming pool and daily list of activities including yoga and hikes. It’s in an unbeatable mountain setting with direct access to ski slopes.”

World’s Most Stunning Views
Boutique Hotel Villa Sostaga, Gargnano, Italy
The design and architecture is rich in history, with lots of natural light and a chandeliered dining room with spectacular views over Lake Garda and the villages beyond.”

World’s Best Family Hotel
Green Spa Resort Stanglwirt, Austria
I’ve never seen so many high quality facilities in the same place. It has 15 tennis courts, 5 saunas, 5 pools, stables, and much more. There’s even an 8-course tasting menu that’s different every evening.”

World’s Best Private Villa
Over Yonder Cay, Bahamas
A unique, eco-friendly haven for those seeking sustainable and luxury living. You’ll have the attention of a team of therapists, water sports and diving instructors, and tennis and golf coaches. Over Yonder Cay has a private sailing yacht and its own reef.” 

Europe’s Best Private Villa
Isla Sa Ferradura, Ibiza, Spain
This private island has just 6 suites, and 24 staff members who are dedicated to making your wishes come true. You are spoilt with incredible facilities including a gym and spa. The staff can organise almost any activity, including hot air ballooning, yacht or even helicopter tours.”

Best Host Of The Year
Relais Rossar Garda & Hills, Italy
Run by sisters Marta and Camilla, Relais Rossar is a converted stable offering world-class hospitality. The design is simple, homely and warm, with family antiques scattered around. 50% of the guests are returners, so don’t be surprised if you see some pottering around in their dressing gown and slippers.” 

The Finest Home–Grown Wine Pairing
Tenuta Montemagno Relais & Wines, Italy
Waiter Francesco and wife served breakfast and dinner. Francesco introduced all our food and wines and had a lovely manner: calm, attentive, local. Dinner was a taster menu based on what had been sourced that morning at the market. Wine was all locally produced and wine matching was excellent.”
