(CNN) – It begins with the location: a lush green hill of jungle vegetation overlooking the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.
Then add the services: more than 50 floors and elegant and modern villas spread over 33 green hectares. Access to a private sandy beach with drinks service. Colorful birds and other wild animals are on the premises. Hammocks, bathtubs, swimming pools and massages.
It all combines to make Tulemar Bungalows & Villas, in Costa Rica, the best hotel in the world in 2022, according to Tripadvisor’s annual Travelers’ Choice Awards.
The travel site’s hotel ratings with top destinations and best beaches arrive earlier this year.
“We know there is no one-size-fits-all approach to travel planning,” said Kanika Soni, Corporate Lead. Officer Tripadvisor, in a press release sent to CNN Travel.
“No matter what type of trip you’re looking for, this year’s Travelers’ Choice Awards – with winners from six continents and 90 countries – showcase the best recommendations from your fellow travellers.”
Praise is no stranger to Tolimar. It was number 9 on the 2021 list.
Last year No. 1 was the Colline de France Hotel in Gramado, Brazil. He did not make the top ten list in 2022.
