Best Hotels of the World – Virtuoso Awards 2011

News This month Virtuoso awarded best hotels of the world for the fifth time. This organization is known as the luxurious travel network that also issues Virtuoso Life magazine. In order to participate in the networks, hotels must get invitations from Virtuoso. This is the only way to enter this premium society.

As Albert Herrera, the vice president of Virtuoso’s hotels, destinations & tours, mentions, today the word ‘luxury’ is used so often that many forget about its true meaning. Many hotels state they belong to the luxurious segment while in true their services do not match the promised level. This year’s winners, however, perfectly fit their names and provide highest level of quality of service.

The award titled “Best of the Best” has been won by The Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel. Other accommodations in the US and South America won in such nominations as Best Spa, Best Family Program, Most Socially Responsible, and Most Innovative Guest Experience.

What about hotels in Europe and Asia? They also got awards in many nominations.

The title Hotel of the Year was won by the hotel in Venice – Hotel Cipriani & Palazzo Vendramin. Gourmet travellers should definitely visit Le 114 Faubourg at Le Bristol hotel in Paris as this accommodation won the title Best Culinary Experience. Best bar in the world is located in Savoy hotel in London (American Bar). Asia is represented by 2 awards. Most sophisticated and stylish design can be found in the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Hong Kong (Best Achievement in Design award). Finally, if you seek something unique, the category One to Watch is definitely for you. This year’s winner is St. Regis hotel in Lhasa, China.
