As the past two years have shown, the hotel industry is remarkably resilient. The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic presented numerous hurdles — including lockdowns that, in some cases, meant that a property had to close its doors for a year or more. But a renewed sense of hope has taken hold, as travellers, eager to plan those long-postponed vacations, are booking hotels and resorts in numbers that rival pre-pandemic heights.

Every year for the World's Best Awards survey, Travel + Leisure asks readers to weigh in on travel experiences around the globe — to share their opinions on the top hotels, resorts, cities, islands, cruise ships, spas, airlines, and more. Readers rated hotel brands on their locations, rooms/facilities, food, service, and overall value.

Our rigorous science-backed, people-focused certification process has been embraced by the world’s most recognised travel and tourism brands. It helps them demonstrate their sustainability commitment long-term and attract more higher-yielding customers.

Most importantly, EarthCheck Certified businesses can actively demonstrate their commitment to providing exceptional, sustainable travel experiences.
