    In groups of 2 to 4 students, research:

    1. The world’s best hotel

    I found on the website travelandleisure.com. The Capella Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. It is described as having the best personalised service and super attentive staff.

    2. The world’s largest hotel

    The First World Hotel in Malaysia is the biggest hotel, with 7,351 rooms located in the Titiwangsa Mountain. There are lots of facilities from a swimming pool to a rollercoaster.

    3. The world’s largest resort

    The world’s largest resort is ‘The Venetian Las Vegas’ which is a luxury hotel and casino in Las Vegas.

    4. The world’s most expensive suite

    The empathy suite in Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas is the most expensive suite available. It costs around $100,000 per night and was designed by British artist Damien Hirst.

    5. Your country’s best hotel

    Hotel Barrière Le Majestic Cannes in Cannes is a highly rated hotel on TripAdvisor. The hotel has its own private beach for guests to use.

    6. Your country’s most expensive hotel

    The Plaza Athénée seems to be the most expensive hotel with one night costing from 1,000 to 3,000 euros per room. A luxury hotel with a ice rink in winter and a Dior health-care institute.

    Out of all the hotels I felt all provided high quality service, even though they stood at different price points. There was a range of different facilities available such as swimming pools and restaurants.

    I agree with Areej the best hotels definitely offer high quality of service and facilities. Having good restaurants in the hotel is important and seems to be common in all the hotels
