A recent survey based on data from over 3 million visitors in 2017 has ranked the most popular luxury destinations in the world. Europe and Asia fares quite well with a number of obvious choices including resort locations and urban destinations. Really there aren’t too many surprises, though we thought we’d see South Africa on the list as it’s a perennial favorite for luxury safaris.
Paris, Dubai, New York, London and Singapore round out the top 5 destinations for luxury travelers according to the survey..
Overall, three destinations in the US made the list, New York, Hawaii and Florida. Whilst two destinations in Spain (Majorca and Barcelona) were featured. London was the only UK city to be included.
Maldives and the Bahamas are also featured in the top 25 list mainly due to their high average visitor hotel spend.
The top 25 luxury travel destinations for 2017 are as follows;

About the Methodology:
The survey methodology combines both the overall popularity of each destination, from over 3 million visitors to the LuxuryHotelsGuides.com website in 2017 with the average transaction amount each traveler spends on their hotel. Results weighted towards popularity (60%), then average booking amount (40%). The higher the average spend per destination and the more visitors, the higher the destination appears.(see overall rating column above for results)
