It seems that boutique hotels get more luxurious every year. From spectacular decor to unparalleled amenities, the best luxury properties have been recognized by the Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Awards for 2016.

Founded in 2003, Mr & Mrs Smith is a boutique-hotel booking service with a collection of more than 1,000 hand-picked, anonymously reviewed boutique and luxury hotels. With winning destinations ranging from Chile to Japan and 12 categories to choose from, we’re putting these hotels on our radar for 2017 travel.

This year’s panel included designer Charlotte Olympia Dellal and chef Tom Aikens among other discerning celebrity judges. The top accolade, Best Smith Hotel 2016, was put to a public vote of more than 25,000 travelers and awarded to Halcyon House in Australia.

“We’ve always wanted Mr & Mrs Smith to be about the details, so this year we’ve ensured each category gives a nod to a unique part of the boutique hotel experience,” said James Lohan, Founder and Executive Chairman, Mr & Mrs Smith. “We’ve introduced new categories…we want to reward and recognize the best of the best.”
