Best of the Best Hotels

Small & Boutique - World

From hidden gems to cosy retreats, these smaller stays make a big impression.

The Travellers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel. It’s awarded to those who receive a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. Out of our 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.


With spacious rooms, thoughtful amenities, and incredible service, Adiwana Unagi Suites makes the perfect escape in Ubud. Find your zen at the spa, yoga pavilion, or infinity pool with lush forest views—or better yet, at all three. A free shuttle will take you to the nearby town centre, but there's always the on-site restaurant if you feel like staying in for a hearty meal.

    We had a lovely 4 night stay at the Adiwana Unagi in Ubud. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and it was such a beautiful hotel. The pool area is lovely and relaxing and we also enjoyed a massage in the spa which was very relaxing and a good price. The restaurant was nice and had lots of choice, you can also order breakfast to your room which was nice. You can enjoy a beautiful sunset from the roof terrace where there is also a happy hour as well as afternoon tea. There was a daily shuttle which ran into Ubud centre a few times each day so we went into the town a few times to try some other restaurants. The sister hotel restaurant opposite also looked very nice but didn’t get chance to try it here. We also organised a tour with the hotel where they took us to various spots such as the rice terrace, coffee plantation, temple and waterfall. We also separately visited the monkey forest which was a short walk through the town of Ubud. We would highly recommend staying in this hotel - the rooms were spacious and clean and the outdoor bathroom and bath tub were a great feature. We would love to come again in the future to experience the kind hospitality of the staff. Thank you for such a memorable stay. Ibu Philippa & Bapak Charlie

    If you're looking for a quiet and wonderful accommodation, this is the best!! They asked us about our itinerary on WhatsApp before visiting and gave us comfort with a quick check-in when we first arrived. Yande, who was our Bartler, was very kind and made us feel comfortable throughout our stay here. I will definitely visit Ubud again next time. Thank you for making us a wonderful honeymoon in Bali.

Take your time to explore the ship's interior, elegantly furnished with polished wood and nautical touches, before retiring to your cabin. Help yourself to a fully-stocked minibar, enjoy a luxurious rain shower, and curl up on the cosiest linens.

Hôtel de JoBo is anything but ordinary. Its quirky decor is a nod to the classic French style, with leopard prints lining the walls and rose-patterned rugs covering the floor. While the rooms are on the smaller side, travellers love how comfortable they are, designed with thoughtful touches and little surprises. Another big win for the hotel is its fab location in Le Marais. The metro is right around the corner, along with several shops and restaurants that'll leave you spoiled for choice.
