Monday newsletters always feature top 10 travel lists to inspire.

Today (July 27, 2020): Top 10 best Oberoi hotels & resorts in the world.

Oberoi is one of the most exclusive hotel brands in the world. The Oberoi story wrote its early chapters in the Indian city of Shimla in 1934, when Mohan Singh Oberoi pioneered the idea of luxury hospitality in India by opening his first hotel. In the following years Oberoi – assisted by his two sons – continued the expansion of his hotel group with properties both in India and abroad. Today, the group operates 35 hotels and cruise ships in six countries under the luxury ‘Oberoi’ and five-star ‘Trident’ brand. The group still practices the hospitality philosophy that began with Mr. Oberoi himself and are now echoed by his son and current chairman Prithvi Raj Singh Obero: The guest is everything. Here are my 10 favorite hotels and resorts in Oberoi’s portfolio.
