Life is full of surprises. Now and then you need to temporarily escape from everyday life to truly find peace.– Stephen T

How Do Hotels Earn a Listing?

First and foremost, HANDPICKED® only lists premium hotels or resorts who believe in striving for perfection. The building architecture and grounds should be remarkable. The building interior design should be noteworthy. Additionally, we make sure all hotels earn exceptional reviews from guests. In short, we insist that all luxury hotels listed on HANDPICKED® are interesting and uncommon. We are not affiliated with a listed hotel (unless noted) and do not own their possible trademark. Hotels are listed without asking the hotel owner if they want to be listed; however, we will accept advertising dollars only if we believe a listing meets our rigorous requirements.

Why Should You Be Here?

You will not find a more authentic list of quality hotels and resorts. To illustrate, we will not accept money from just anyone. We only list hotels or resorts that meet exacting criteria. Please understand that HANDPICKED® exists for your refined pleasure!

How Do You Find Exceptional Hotels?

Creating a useful list takes exhaustive research. We truly enjoy the narrowing process! Your hotel needs to be like no other and automated algorithms will never be able to find original treasures. HANDPICKED® thrives on vibrant colors and diverse places hidden from plain view.

Does the Hotel’s Web Site Matter?

We believe that hotels should possess an alluring digital presence that is remarkable. Exceptional physical hotel properties worth enormous dollars are worth less when paired with weak digital assets. Adept hotels create a digital footprint that is thoughtfully crafted.

HANDPICKED® is quite particular in finding web sites which are alluring visually mated with one of a kind content. We are always impressed when a hotel is easily remembered by their digital presence. Most importantly, when guests share their positive experiences and hotels respond with genuine affection we become fascinated.

Could I Reserve a Room Here?

We only reveal genuine hotels and resorts for your viewing pleasure. We are quite selective on what hotels you may book through HANDPICKED®

So You Curate Hotels?

In our opinion, the word “curate” is overused in numerous industries. The term is now commonplace and lacks the distinction held over the past decade. We want to stand out from the crowd and our brand reflects this fact. We are proudly named HANDPICKED®
