Best Luxury Resorts – What makes a luxury resort worth the money

Luxury Resorts
The world’s best luxury resorts have worked long and hard to build up their reputations as the finest accommodation providers in the world. Resorts differ from hotels by being located in more pristine natural environments as opposed to cities and often incorporate outdoor activities into their own unique brand of escapism. With nightly room rates that often soar to well over $1000 a night for regular rooms and ten times that for suites it is worth asking what exactly makes a room at one of the best resorts in the world worth the money. The answer can be broken down into a couple of different categories: location, amenities, service and design.

Almost without exception the world’s best resorts, regardless of whether they’re located on tropical beaches, in the mountains or deep in a jungle, have spectacular locations in the most beautiful areas of each destination. On islands the location may be totally secluded to offer guests the privacy that they are looking for in a relaxing vacation and in the mountains the resort may have access to ski slopes or hiking trails. In general people visit resorts to see untouched natural beauty and to interact with it in some way so location is paramount for the world’s best resorts.

There are a number of amenities that a resort needs to have in order to maintain their reputation. A full service concierge might be the most important although many guests want access to a business center, even in a remote location, as well as excellent dining and activities. Activities take on a special meaning for resort guests as interaction with the natural world is one of the reasons they visit. The world’s best resorts have whole teams of highly-trained staff available for guiding and instruction in everything from scuba diving to hiking and skiing. In terms of service it is not uncommon for the most exclusive resorts to have full service butlers on staff for special guests and families and all luxury resorts take great pride in their absolute dedication to guest comfort and the ability to make anything happen that a guest might desire.

The design of the world’s best resorts ranges from new and modern construction to environmentally-friendly buildings that are built using local materials and adhere to a strict code of sustainability. Newer resorts tend to reflect the environment where they are found and can only be considered among the world’s best luxury hotels if the construction has taken into account the natural landscape, even in a city, and continued a theme throughout the entire property.

Even with the incredible number of new resorts that are being constructed on a yearly basis it is very hard to be considered one of the best luxury resorts in the world. It takes a very special dedication to the entire guest experience and a promise to deliver the absolute highest levels of service in a truly special environment to make the list.
