Fodor’s Travel has released its 2020 edition of Fodor’s Finest: The 100 Most Incredible Hotels in the World.
From a whimsical Wisconsin campsite to a converted Majorcan fortress, the list showcases a huge range of accommodation from across the globe and is split in to 10 geographic categories.
Revived in 2018 after years of dormancy, the Fodor’s list includes properties for nearly every budget. While the Four Seasons appears multiple times, as does the St. Regis Abu Dhabi, where a suite will cost you a huge $40,000 per night, the list also includes properties that can be enjoyed for less than $100 per night. These include the tropical Life House Little Havana in Miami and Berlin’s minimalistic and uber-trendy Michelberger Hotel.
‘The best hotels in the world are certainly larger than life – but not necessarily out of reach for the average traveller,’ said Jeremy Tarr, Editorial Director of Fodors.com.
‘Whether rustic or luxurious, the 100 diverse properties on this year’s list each offer an experience loaded with authentic charm, breathtaking accommodations, and an intangibly seductive feeling of wonder.’
A few of the incredible hotels featured…
Camp Wandawega, Wisconsin, USA, is a campsite that once served as a hideaway for Chicago criminals during its long history. Its current incarnation is uber-cool, with vintage-inspired interiors attracting photo shoots by trendy brands like Anthropologie. Accommodation is spread over cabins and cottages, and amenities include a teepee and a treehouse.
Fogo Island Inn in Newfoundland, Canada, is carefully perched upon long stilts along the rocky shores of Fogo Island. The inn offers luxury comforts and dedicates itself to investing profits back into the Fogo Island community.
Dar A hlam in Ouarzazate, Morocco, is located down a dirt road in the remote foothills of the Atlas Mountains. Its exotic and mysterious facade looks like it’s been conjured from One Thousand and One Nights.
The Ritz Carlton in the Al Wadi Desert, UAE, is exactly what it sounds like – a Ritz Carlton smack bang in the middle of a desert. It’s every bit as luxurious as you imagine, although the hotel’s design has been borrowed from local Bedouin culture and the Moors.
