Secret Bay Hotel, located in Ti Bay, Portsmouth, has been rated number two among the world’s greatest boutique hotels.
Secret Bay was named on Flight Network’s list of twenty-one boutique hotels on 8 March 2017, second to Les Bains Paris.
Flight Network said its team of travel experts and judges searched the far reaches of the world, from Tofino, British Columbia, to Botswana’s Okavango Delta for the properties that stand above the rest as the World’s 100 Greatest Hotels.
It said accommodations can make all the difference in the ultimate getaway, and choosing the perfect hotel, resort, lodge or inn can greatly change what you take away from each journey.
“Our goal was to help our customers navigate the ever-changing hotel industry and discover the properties that are truly the best of the best in 2017,” Flight Network said.
In addition to uncovering the world’s greatest hotels, Flight Network divided them into categories — Luxury Hotels, Boutique Hotels, Luxury Resorts, Luxury Lodges and Inns, to accommodate the varying personal preferences of every traveler.
Among the 100 hotels meticulously chosen are a Kenyan lodge sitting 300 metres above the Maasai Mara National Reserve (Angama Mara), a Moroccan oasis with personal riads (Royal Mansour Marrakech) and over-water villas on a private coral island (Gili Lankanfushi). But some of the world’s most impressive hotels are located directly under our noses too. Newfoundland’s Fogo Island Inn offers unprecedented hospitality with life-altering, floor-to-ceiling views of the North Atlantic from every suite, while The Knickerbocker reigns as New York City’s premier luxury lifestyle hotel. While some once-in-a-lifetime experiences require a trip to the Maldives or Dubai, others can be found in North Hatley, Quebec (Manoir Hovey) and Newport, Rhode Island (The Chanler at Cliff Walk).
