Top 10 Small Luxury Hotels in the World

oberoiudaivillas.jpgTerry Knealing has dropped me a note to draw my attention to his top 10 choices for small luxury hotels worldwide over at LifeOnTop.com.   For the purposes of his list, small hotels are defined  as ones that  have less than 125 guest rooms and suites (so not necessarily all that small!) Here goes:
  1. Oberoi Udaivilas  – Rajasthan, India
  2. Le Sirenuse  – Positano, Italy
  3. Las Ventanas Al Paraiso  – Los Cabos, Mexico
  4. Amanjena Resort Marrakech  – Marrakech, Morocco
  5. The Setai  – Miami, Florida
  6. Chateau de Bagnols  – Bagnols, France
  7. The Milestone Hotel  – London, Great Britain
  8. The Wheatleigh  – Lenox, Massachusetts
  9. Ladera  – St. Lucia, West Indies
  10. Il Falconiere, Relais et Chateaux  – Cortona, Tuscany, Italy

  1. I had my wedding at Le Sirenuse in Positano, Italy and it is definitely one of the best hotels in the world! The service second to none, the views are spectacular and the rooms are amazing!
    However I prefer:
    The One & Only Pamilla over Las Ventanas in Cabos.
    The Delano over The Setai.
    The Lotus Privilege over Amanjena in Marrakech.

    Just my two cents:)

  2. The Oberoi Udaivilas in Rajasthan certainly deserves its spot on this list! All the Oberoi hotels are amazing but the Udaivilas is spectacular.
