The results of the annual Travel + Leisure survey are in and it is time to name the world's best hotels for 2012.

Everyone wants to know where to stay and, for 17 years running, we've asked T+L readers, who are passionate about travel, to vote on the hotels they love the most. The resulting World's Best Awards are a collection of the properties that go above and beyond. The voting categories stay the same--rooms, location, service, food, and value -- but this year's results showcase the hotels and destinations that are important now.

Safari lodges are tough to beat, however, especially Singita Grumeti Reserves, in Tanzania. Two lodges and two camps (including one mobile camp, set up in various locations around the Serengeti) make up this exotic winner, which has ranked No. 1 in the world for two years running. For all the World's Best Hotel winners, read on--and then hit the road to experience them yourself.
