Gone are the days of booking the cheapest possible hotel you can find in order to stay under budget and travel longer. In 2021 it’s all about finding fun, unique and quirky accommodation that’s just as much a part of the experience as any of your planned activities.

So get excited, because Tripadvisor has just released its ‘Travellers’ Choice Best of the Best Awards for Hotels’ in 2021. There are a bunch of categories, including in Australia and South Pacific, to worldwide. Winners are chosen by the number and quality of reviews and rankings from the Triadvisor community.

“From COVID-19 to bushfires and floods, 2020 was definitely the year of weekend getaways and domestic staycations in Australia,” said Tripadvisor spokesperson, Jane Lim.

“This year, with travel bubbles in place and more on the way, we’re all excited to finally get back to travel. Tripadvisor’s Best of the Best awards celebrate the best hotels around the world — big, small, romantic and more, inviting travellers to get inspired and start planning their epic return to travel once it’s safe again”.

Let me just tell you, we did pretty well no matter where you look.

Let’s start with the fact Queensland’s Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat won the top spot in the ‘Most Romantic Hotel in the World’ category. Not surprising, given these self-contained pavilions are nestled in the rainforest and surrounded by birdsong.

Australia also took out number three on the world romance list with Bli Bli House Riverside Retreat, also in Queensland. Guess they know how to stoke the love fires in the Sunshine State.

Travel bubbles to the South Pacific may not be so far away (in fact, we can already kind of get to the Cook Islands), so you might want to know that the adults-only Tokoriki Island Resort in Fiji took the number one spot in the South Pacific category.

Of course, we all mostly came here to work out where we should book our next holiday, so without further ado, please enjoy the top 10 list in the Aussie hotels category.
