It is expected that the best hotels in the world would be somewhere in Paris, New York, Hong Kong, or Singapore. However, according to the Travel + Leisure’s 19th edition annual reader poll, the best hotels are in Montana, where people stay in log cabins and gaze over the stars.
A Triple Creek Ranch located in Darby, Montana got 97 points in the poll. It even outranked big luxury hotels such as the Mandarin Oriental, Oberoi, St. Regis, and the Four Seasons.
Triple Creek Ranch may not be a very popular name, but it is in fact a member of Relais & Chateaux, which is an international organization of luxury properties that consist of castles, manors, historic landmarks, and are usually situated in bucolic areas all over the world.
People who opt to stay in this ranch are looking to get away from the busy city life and get back to a mellower and simpler life and connect with nature. Being at the top spot may mean that travellers are looking for a place where they can unplug from technology and the hustles and bustles of their busy life.
Besides the ranch, the list also includes Crystal Cruises, which is also named the best cruise line in the world. Santorini, Greece also made the list, especially because it can easily be considered as the best island in the world.
