The best hotels in the world have been named by TripAdvisor, with Switzerland's historic five-star Grand Hotel Kronenhof taking the coveted No. 1 position in the annual Travellers' Choice Awards ahead of Hong Kong's small luxury boutique property The Upper House, and the over-water bungalows of Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives.

The 12th annual awards also named the best hotels in New Zealand with the Milbrook Resort in Queenstown taking the top place, followed by the Sofitel Queenstown Hotel & Spa and The George in Christchurch.
