Top 10 hotels in the world, according to TripAdvisor Traveler's Choice Awards 2013

Here are the top hotels around the world according to the website's 11th edition of the Traveler's Choice Awards 2013 and what TripAdvisor members said about them.

 A luxury, ocean-side resort in Hawaii beat out 6,000 other properties to take the title of top luxury hotel in the world, according to members of TripAdvisor.

1. Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu, Hawaii
"The site of the hotel is beyond lovely—nestled on the shore among the blackened lava flows and banyan trees. I can't speak to the area around the resort, because it's so beautiful that honestly, you don't feel the desire to venture out.”

2. Cape Grace, Cape Town Central, South Africa
“My husband loves Cape Grace so much, he wants to live there. I always feel like a guest in a hundred-room mansion with extremely gracious hosts.”

3. Onyria Marinha Edition Hotel & Thalasso, Cascais, Portugal
“If you cannot find happiness during your stay here, stop looking. There isn't a better place you'll find. The staff will go above and beyond to meet any expectations you may have. The accommodations are second to none.”

4. Rudding Park Hotel, Harrogate, United Kingdom
“The room was magnificent and the food and wine, first rate. I've never seen so many people with smiles on their faces, and that was both staff and residents.”

5. The Upper House, Hong Kong
“The rooms are utterly fantastic, with floor-to-ceiling vistas of Victoria Harbour! The location is elegant, and the service puts any other hotel's to shame.”

6. Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita, Beau Champ, Mauritius
"Everything about this resort was pure luxury. Our villa included an outdoor shower, a beautiful private garden, a sun lounge and our own plunge pool. Service and professionalism at every level.”

7. The Samaya Bali, Seminyak, Indonesia
"We were in complete bliss from the moment we stepped onto the property. We never wanted or needed for anything. The rooms are spacious/comfortable/gorgeous, the staff obliged every request, the restaurant/food was exquisite and the afternoon tea everyday was my favorite touch.”

8. Baros Maldives, North Male Atoll, Maldives
"It will leave you breathless. I am at a loss for words. Here I am in Thailand, on the third leg of our honeymoon and yet all we continue thinking about is the first leg—Baros.”

9. Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet, Istanbul, Turkey
"Despite the fact the it's located in the very bustling center of the old city, there is no noise from the surrounding streets. It is a beautiful haven in the midst of every important historic monument that one comes to Istanbul to see.”

10. Aria Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic
"We keep returning because they never disappoint. The rooms are large and very well decorated. The linens are wonderful. The staff absolutely could not be more helpful.”
