The Best Hotel Suites On The Planet According To The World Travel Awards

Every year, the World Travel Awards celebrates the very best across the tourism and hospitality industries. Among the nominations this year, which are selected by travel professionals and the public, are the best hotel suites from around the world that offer the ultimate wow factor.

I spoke with Graham Cooke, Founder of the World Travel Awards who said, “We are hosting our first World Travel Awards ceremony since the pandemic in Jamaica, followed by events in Vietnam, Kenya, Jordan and Mallorca. We are encouraged by the calibre and number of travel industry figureheads who are travelling from across the world to join us in celebrating industry excellence. This is also a reflection of just how strongly travel is bouncing back.”

“The global lockdown came as an unprecedented shock to our sector, particularly in nations which are heavily tourism reliant,” he adds. “But it’s fantastic to be back. The industry is emerging leaner and hungrier. Within the luxury hospitality sector, a whole raft of exciting properties are opening this year.”

Here is the list of this year’s World Travel Awards nominations for Best Hotel Suite that will be updated with the winners through October.
