Skift Take

Although these hotels are great to dream about, we preferred the TripAdvisor's dirtiest hotels list that at least made us appreciate our hotel choice.

TripAdvisor kickstarted the new year with a list the 10 top rated hotels for 2014.The list is an impressive set of properties from the blue seas of the Maldives to shores of Mexico.

For a few thousand dollars a night, guests are exposed to striking sunsets, very expensive spa treatments, and meals prepared by top-rated chefs. It’s not very surprising that such properties would rise to the top of TripAdvisor’s ranks.

The full list of top rated hotels are listed below, and several are featured in the slideshow above:

1. Grand Hotel Kronenhof, Pontresina, Switzerland
2. The Upper House, Hong Kong, China
3. Gili Lankanfushi Maldives, Lankanfushi, Maldives
4. Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens, La Fortuna de San Carlos, Costa Rica
5. The Oberoi Udaivilas, Udaipur, India
6. Casa Gangotena, Quito, Ecuador
7. Lindos Blu, Lindos, Greece
8. The St. Regis Punta Mita Resort, Punta de Mita, Mexico
9. The Oberoi, Mumbai, Mumbai, India
10. Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto, Toronto, Canada
