In the pursuit of unparalleled luxury and hospitality, my travels in 2023 led me to some remarkable hotels that surpassed all expectations. Join me as I take you through my top 5 hotels of the year, each offering a unique blend of luxury, comfort, and exceptional service.

Nestled along the Mediterranean coast, the Four Seasons Hotel Tunis epitomises luxury with its sophisticated design and breathtaking sea views. The hotel seamlessly blends traditional Tunisian architecture with modern elegance. Guests are treated to spacious rooms, world-class amenities, and impeccable service. There are multiple on-site dining options, including The CREEK restaurant, which I absolutely loved (pictured below). Also had the BEST breakfast ever during this trip - check it out here.

In Four Seasons Tunis, I stayed in the luxury "Sea View Suite" and it was absolutely breath-taking.

The hotel boasts lavish rooms with panoramic sea and marina views, providing a serene retreat. Its extensive facilities include multiple pools, a spa, and a variety of dining options (we had dinner at Blue Elephant restaurant and absolutely loved it - pictured below). With its great location near historic sites and vibrant nightlife, Hilton Malta offers a perfect blend of relaxation and exploration.
