Tulemar Bungalows & Villas in Costa Rica's Manuel Antonio National Park has been named the world's best hotel by the 2019 Travelers' Choice Awards, a ranking system based on comments posted by the users of TripAdvisor.
With 33 acres of rainforest and a private beach, Tulemar Bungalows & Villas offers travelers a chance to connect with nature. Some of the rooms look out over its gardens, others have views of the sea. According to the Travelers' Choice Awards, the world's second best hotel is the Hotel Belvedere in Riccione in Emilia-Romagna, Italy. The four-star establishment, which offers views over the Adriatic, also tops the Travelers' Choice ranking for European hotels. Placed third in the global ranking, Viroth's Hotel in Siem Reap, Cambodia, is also the Travelers' Choice overall winner in Asia.
The European rankings is largely monopolized by Italian, Turkish and Greek getaways, with the Kayakapi Premium Caves Cappadocia taking top spot in TripAdvisor's Luxury list.
Meanwhile the top US hotel comes in sixth in the world rankings -- the French Quarter Inn in Charleston, South Carolina, a city that is also home to the third on the US list, The Spectator Hotel, which follows The Nantucket Hotel & Resort in second place.
