Flight Network Reveals the 100 Greatest Hotels in the World

In pursuit of finding the top luxury accommodations around the world, Flight Network launched an unparalleled campaign that rose above any contest in the history of the Canada-based global travel agency. The landmark results were determined by a panel of the industry’s most esteemed travel experts and judges, all of whom sought to ensure that every hotel chosen exceeded the highest hospitality standards, while offering something innovative to the travel experience. So, on March 8, 2017, after highly vetting a list of nearly 1,000 luxury and boutique hotels, resorts, lodges and inns, Flight Network officially unveiled their most definitive guide to date: the 100 Greatest Hotels in the World.

Whether tucked away in an ancient city, remote island, or a national park in the heartland of Africa, Flight Network’s team of travel industry experts traversed the world for hotels that stood out above the rest. For months, leading luxury travel specialists, writers, and executives, then meticulously examined accommodations based on everything from their original style to first-class services, ability to embody local culture, and provide access to remarkable environments. Most important of all was what caliber of experience hotels could offer to well-seasoned travellers on the hunt for something unforgettable. Such a process resulted in the list of the 100 Greatest Hotels in the World, which today features accommodations that have set themselves apart from thousands of contenders across all major types of lodging.

“At Flight Network, we pride ourselves on being a global travel agency, and our goal with this contest is to showcase the world’s greatest hotels in a variety of categories: Luxury Hotels, Boutique Hotels, Luxury Resorts, Lodges and Inns,” said Neil Bhapkar, Flight Network’s Chief Marketing Officer, who oversaw the record-breaking contest. “It’s important that our customers know about the most recent advancements in the hotel industry, as well as properties that have remained among the best in the world for decades. We sent our travel experts to each of the properties to get first-hand experiences that we are now sharing with our customers.”

One Flight Network travel expert also reflected back on the process: “Each property was carefully selected based upon our customers’ first-hand experiences, as well as our own extensive research on each property. Those listed as the Top 100 Hotels in the World offered a unique combination of luxury, personalized experiences, and accommodations that reflected the true environment and culture of the destination. These are hotels that will change the way you view travel, and think about the world at large.”

That said, perhaps wait a moment before booking those tickets, and instead, take a look at what’s at your disposal. From lavish skyscrapers and seaside resorts to the most charming inns and lodges, Flight Network proudly presents the 100 Greatest Hotels in the World.
