Travel + Leisure Releases Its World’s Best List

Travel + Leisure released its highly anticipated annual “World’s Best” awards last week and thus, a slew of new vacation dreams was born. It turns out no other place in the mag’s 100 Best Hotels In The World is quite so decadent as the wanderlust-inducing paradise that nabbed its number one spot: Nihiwatu, this year’s “best hotel in the world,” is a sprawling resort on the beautiful Indonesian island of Sumba. The waterfront resort was hailed by voters for its surf, restaurants, spas and staff, 90 percent of whom are local to Indonesia. But we’re the most taken by what the hotel calls its “three-villa treehouse,” which sits on a cliff overlooking the Indian ocean. Each of the three villas of this piece-de-resistance, which is elevated on wooden stilts rather than actually constructed in a tree, has its own living and bedroom area. There’s a private infinity pool in one, and a shared infinity pool between the other two. The whole treehouse is connected by a bamboo bridge and decorated in traditional Sumbanese carvings and decorations. To read more at Huffington Post, click here. To view the entire list, click here.
