Global Tastemakers is our first-ever reader’s choice awards, celebrating the best culinary destinations in the U.S. and abroad. F&W readers voted based on travel completed within the past three years, on categories including restaurants and bars, cities, hotels, airports, airlines, and cruises. Due to the limitations of pandemic travel, this year’s Global Tastemakers winners reflect a smaller portion of the globe. In many categories, we’re including an editor’s pick to shout out some more culinary destinations in places you can’t miss. See the full list of winners at

Room service is an all-important amenity that’s all too often overlooked when planning where to stay. Indeed, the difference between good room service and great room service can separate a decent hotel experience from a transcendent one. Enjoying a fantastic gourmet meal by your bedside might end up being one of the last memories of your vacation. Stranger things have happened. 

So when they say you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff, don’t assume for a second that room service is included therein. And this very special sort of pampering is lifted to new levels when overnighting at any of the properties included below. Book your stay, and expect to be blown away by what comes knocking at your hotel door.

It’s not just the excellence of the Mexican cuisine at this five-star property — and it is very much next level (our Senior Editor Maria Yagoda claims this kitchen is responsible for the best spicy green chilaquiles of her life) — it’s the ease with which you can attain all of that masterful cuisine. Simply text your personal butler at any time, day or night, and an unforgettable meal will be at your door within minutes. Savor it from your bed or on the patio overlooking the Sea of Cortez.

Beaverbook Estate: Surrey, England

Calling Beaverbrook a luxury hotel somehow feels like underselling it. This place is downright aristocratic. So when it comes time to order up to your room, be prepared for a meal befitting royalty. That means a selection of half-bottles curated by the on-site sommelier. For food it equals Grade I Japanese Kobe Beef, hay-smoked baby chicken, miso-glazed black cod, and so much more. Even the kids menu has its own bento box with yakitori or teriyaki on standby.

The five-star fabulousness of this estate is translated here to a boutique abode right in the heart of Chelsea. Delectable bites from the ground-level Fuji Grill can always be carried up to your room during dining hours … and there are so many savory Japanese flavors to choose from. Or, if it’s breakfast hours, you can opt for one of the best plates of waffles and bacon in all of London.

At this idyllic outpost strewn high above the Greek isles, room service amounts to much more than just meals. You can have fresh roses, buckets of high-end Champagne, and truffle chocolates as part of your turndown service. There’s also a designated sleep concierge who can bring you light snacks and herbal teas to help you doze off effortlessly before bedtime.

Our readers are clearly smitten with the amenities of Andronis. This sister property to the Luxury Suites located just a few blocks away in Oía is equally committed to the in-room experience. Here they’ll bring you a bevy of mouth-watering mezze at any time of day. It arrives in such photogenic form you’ll have to remind yourself to stop Instagramming before these meticulously crafted dishes get too cold.

This Neo-Gothic castle is set on 840 acres in the picturesque countryside outside of Limerick. It makes the perfect setting for enjoying Michelin-star cuisine from executive chef Michael Tweedie. His fine-dining space down in the Oak Room showcases the splendor of contemporary Irish fare. And when you’re staying here you can enjoy more of the same without ever even leaving your room.

There are 11 distinct dining experiences across this one-of-a-kind resort, and offerings span from Mexican to Middle Eastern delicacies. The hospitality here allows — and even encourages — you to build your own bespoke menu from all of these eateries and enjoy it from the private terrace of your overwater villa. Hard to say no to that.

Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita: Punta Mita, Mexico

The “In Casita” dining here leans toward selections sourced from the sea: the fish tacos and catch-of-the-day ceviche are as good as you’ll get anywhere outside of your casita. But you’ll also want to save room for the traditional tortilla soup on offer, it’s been a favorite on the property since it opened over 20 years ago.

Enjoy the expansive offerings of seafood-centric Oceano restaurants in the comfort of your own villa. You can also have your kitchen pre-stocked with sundries and high-end meats from the on-property market if you want to spend some time cooking for yourself. This is supposed to be your vacation, though. So you can also opt to bring in one of the property’s talented chefs to cook it all for you instead.

What is it with Westins? Our readers love them — especially if they’re in Mexico. When you look closer at what they’re bringing by way of room service, it’s easy to understand the allure. At the Los Cabos Resort & Spa, you’ll have access to a wide range of international specialties 24 hours a day. For a real treat, stick with the property’s stellar Mexican contemporary cuisine, which is somehow even more magical when devoured late at night.

Editor's Pick: Oberoi Marrakech

After years of construction, the Oberoi Marrakech opened at the end of 2019 and fully lived up to the expectations. The hotel includes 84 rooms, suites, and villas, all artfully designed with hand-laid tile and a lush landscape as a backdrop. With such beautiful design, it makes sense that many opt to spend a bit more time in their rooms, which also means that the hotel had to come up with some stellar room service options. From a private barbecue at your personal pool to personal butler service, any experience is possible. - Sean Flynn, Senior Editorial Director
