WORLD’S BEST FIVE-STAR HOTELS 2021

World’s Best Five-Star Hotels to stay in during a Global Pandemic

The year 2020 was probably one of the worst for the global travel and tourism industry. But also consumers were hit hard by the pandemic. Unfortunately, 2021 did not bring back travel as we know it: Ongoing travel restrictions, on-arrival quarantines, and dedicated quarantine hotels limit our choice when it comes to travel. Mandatory quarantine hotels and PCR-tests lead to increased costs for international travel while limited connectivity reduces our choice of where to go.

Mandatory quarantine hotels and PCR-tests lead to increased costs for international travel while limited connectivity reduces our choice of where to go.
We created this index in collaboration with the travel tech company Eddy Travels in order to suggest which luxury hotels are the best to stay it I case you are either stuck in one country (imagine you are a UK-resident who can’t travel back home from a red-listed country) or who plan to sit out the pandemic in a hotel.
We put a large emphasis on how hotels have adapted to the new realities and public health requirements and looked at what they do in order to keep their guests safe.
As always: An index comes with limitations which we mention further below.
This index follows our series of travel indices we published over the past few years including the European Index on Most Passenger-friendly Airports, best European Railway Stations, and the Global Sharing Economy Index.

We looked at most 5-Stars Hotels across the globe in order to find the 100 best hotels to sit out the ongoing global pandemic. We assessed the data hotels provide online with help from travel tech experts at Eddy Travels team.
In our methodology, 22% of the entire score was given for the extra precautionary measures hotels have introduced in order to limit the spread of COVID19 at their premises. 17.5% of the score can be earned by providing a diverse and tailored food offering. 5.5% for children’s activities and 11% for spa offerings. Further 5.5% for gyms and another 5.5% for pool amenities. Beach and ski-slope access make up another 5.5%.On property and off-property attractions such as bowling alleys and game-drives give the hotels additional points. We also weighted online review scores and the average Internet speed in the hotel’s country.

Limitations of this ranking:
We did not include some great, but smaller hotels, which do not have restaurants or swimming pools on the property. Also, we were not able to easily access the number of restaurants per hotel which would be a good additional indicator to use. Furthermore, we don’t have Internet speeds per hotel but had to use country averages. The willingness of hotels to provide facility information online influences this ranking and its data quality as well.
