Your suggested hotels listing are definitely looking competitive, but I mentioned only those hotels name which are top rated on top travel reviews & rating website ‘TripAdvisor’. I only listed those 5 star hotels which are unbeaten in every category and hold the top rating in category of top 5 star hotels of India. Above hotels info is not sorted according to largest or biggest, all has described on the basis on highly luxuriously, top rating and maximum numbers of positive customer reviews on TripAdvisor.


  5. Thankx. Sir …..for giving these information to us

    • Gaurav Kumar Srivastava

      Hi Gilbert. I only listed those hotels which have more than 90% of positive rating on TripAdvisor. However, it isn’t possible to list all luxury five hotel resort and hotel.

      BTW, thanks for comment.

  8. Good to see the post!

  9. Hi Gaurav, good blog. nice and informative. Why dont you also write on best hostels in India for tourists. hostels are preferred by europeans and americans and now india has few professionally managed hostels like Crashpad hostotel,zostel hostel or moustache hostel…

  10. Hello. Please suggest me the best hotel in chennai.
    I too have an assignment.
    Can you please tell me India’s oldest language?

    • I. I haven’t written yet any post about which are the best hotels in Chennai India. But for your reference, you can check this TripAdvisor hotels guide: tripadvisor.in/Hotels-g304556-zfc5-Chennai_Madras_Tamil_Nadu-Hotels.html

      II. Sanskrit is India’s oldest language, but our mother tongue is Hindi. However, we also read, write, & speak English very frequently 🙂 🙂 🙂 FYI, India is only country in the world where people uses 122 major and 1599 other languages. (Source: Wikipedia)

  11. Hello Mr. Srivastava, thanks to these updates.

    Can you provide the details about new upcoming hotel projects in India?

  12. Great list,I found the picture of Wildflower Hall, Shimla most interesting , it like the ones that we see in TV’s of hotels abroad I’am amazed its really in Shimla.

  13. Though there are a plethora of luxury hotels in India, I would say these 10 hotels are the best when you want to live opulently in your journey and take home the best memories of your life. But, if you see, budget-friendly hotels are the most demanded these days as they provide all the modern amenities with much less price than the luxury hotels. And the tourists can get these hotels in almost every tourist attractions. It’ll help them to save money on their accommodation and can finance another trip to a new destination.

    I think you should definitely add hotel Lesutra in the list, The unique theme and the mesmerising interiors of the hotel make it one the of the best luxury boutique hotel in India I’ve visited.
