The guests have decided: At the “Travelers Choice Award” 2021 they chose the best hotels in Europe. Spolier: Three of the most popular are on the Greek peninsula of Chalkidiki.

1) Switzerland: The Omnia, Zermatt

The New York architect Ali Tayar has brought the American concept of the Mountain Lodge in line with the Swiss environment of “The Omnia”. Now you can experience enjoyment on all levels here, with a view of the famous Matterhorn. One guest enthuses: “Everything was just perfect: the cave entrance, which is reminiscent of a James Bond film, the view from the terrace, the indoor and outdoor spa area, the sensational service, the selection of whiskeys, the incredibly delicious schnitzel ….

2) Greece: Sani Resort, Sani, Halkidiki

We all (at least three generations) liked the atmosphere best: elegant and yet relaxed, with the right mix of professionalism and friendliness”, writes a guest. The “Sani Resort” on the Chalkidiki peninsula is a 5-star hotel with a spa and several huge pools – although the crystal clear Mediterranean laps onto the beach in front of the door.

3) Greece: Achtis Hotel, Afytos, Chalkidiki

The boutique hotel “Achtis” is also located on the Kassandra peninsula in Chalkidiki. It’s also luxurious, but smaller, more playful and greener than its sister on the west coast. As soon as you walk through the gate, you are in an oasis of calm and peace. Here every guest feels like a king. The special attentions make such a big difference”, emphasizes a happy guest.

4) South Tyrol: Gardena Grödnerhof, Überwasser

Everything is perfect here: the food, the service, the rooms, the pool and the spa. I’ve been here five years in a row and every stay is better than the previous one. A magical experience!”, writes a regular. With the beautifully designed pool (photo), the spas and restaurants, perhaps the perfect refuge for the next winter vacation?

5) Turkey: Club Privé by Rixos, Belek

In the all-inclusive resort “Club Privé by Rixos” east of Antalya on the Turkish Riviera, you can let yourself be pampered.

6) Dolomites: Ambiez Family & Wellness, Trentino

Do you want to go to the mountains with the children? Other families recommend the family hotel “Ambiez Family & Wellness” in Trentino, where parents can relax while the youngsters are entertained by professional entertainers.

7) England: The Hari, London

Luxury in London: “The Hari” is not only very classy, ​​it is also ideally located near Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, the Royal Albert Hall and other attractions in the British capital.

8) Netherlands: Waldorf Astoria, Amsterdam

The “Waldorf” in Amsterdam is beautiful, but unfortunately not exactly cheap either. Guest Eva is full of praise: “The Waldorf Astoria has far exceeded our expectations in all areas. The hotel is located on a quiet canal and blends in wonderfully. The decor is dignified and luxurious. The welcome was warm with attention to detail . The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful, from the front desk to the concierge to the waiters. The wishes were almost read from our eyes, the breakfast is unique. The spa area is also very elegant and comfortable. We really felt at home and look forward to coming back. It just doesn’t get any better! “

9) Portugal: Corpo Santo Lisbon Historical Hotel, Lisbon

The elegant five-star hotel on the outskirts of Lisbon’s old town apparently leaves nothing to be desired. Even breakfast in the Corpo Santo Lisbon Historical Hotel looks sensational!

10) Turkey: Hotel Sultania, Istanbul

Spend the night like the Sultan once did – that’s possible in the “Hotel Sultania” in the old town of Istanbul, just a short stroll from the Hagia Sophia.

11) France: Hotel Le Bristol, Paris

More is hardly possible: four Michelin stars, a huge garden, pool on the roof and a lot of French elegance at one of the best addresses in the city, the Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. If you don’t have to look at your money, you will probably be quite happy here.

12) Greece: Ikos Olivia, Halkidiki

Beatrice speaks of “Heaven on Earth” in her review of the upscale all-inclusive resort “Ikos Olivia.” It is located in a 22-hectare park by the sea between the Chalkidiki peninsulas of Kassandra and Sithonia – and is already the third hotel in Greece to make it into the Top Twelve.
