Rankings in tourism – best hotel of 2015

Rankings in tourism – best hotel of 2015


There are thousands of different tourism rankings. Some of which are professional, and some of which may be doubtful. That is why the caution in interpretation of rankings’ results is always advised.

Nowadays, the development of communication technologies allowed for the biggest tourism websites to create the communities of millions of tourists from all around the world. These communities may become the international juries evaluating hotels, destinations, restaurants, attractions etc.

Despite the use in most cases of accidental sampling, which is a non-probability sampling method that does not allow the generalisation of results, the scores may still be very valuable. The size of the sample, and its diversity often indicates the credibility of results.

One of the most recognisable ratings is the Travelers’ Choice by Tripadvisor. It is based on the Popularity Index, which “incorporates traveller ratings to determine overall traveller satisfaction” and “uses a proprietary algorithm to take into account what travellers like you think – quantity, quality and recency of TripAdvisor reviews”.

According to the latest results of the Travellers’ Choice 2015, the best hotel on the planet is located on Maldives. Get to know the Gili Lankanfushi, and judge if we can trust the ratings!
