Finding the best of the best establishments can be a tricky business, but TripAdvisor recently revealed the winners of its 2023 Travellers' Choice Best Hotel Awards. Almost 12 months of data from real travellers covering over 1.5 million hotels was reviewed and analysed by the online travel agency to uncover the best hotels for a luxurious holiday. Here are the top five best hotels across the globe, according to TripAdvisor.

Guests can enjoy the palace in all its glory, from its hand-carved marble ‘jalis’ or latticework, sandstone balustrades to its elaborate Mughal Gardens.
