Innovative design makes travel better, and for T+L’s 10th annual competition, our distinguished jury chose the best of the year.

Best Hotel, Fewer Than 100 Rooms Gangtey Goenpa Lodge, Gangtey Valley, Bhutan

15 of 25

Designed by Mary Lou Design

Taking its cue from the 17th-century monastery a quick walk from its front door, Gangtey Goenpa slips discreetly and respectfully into its remote hillside location. Composed of two traditional farmhouse-style buildings connected by a single-story hall, the lodge incorporates Bhutanese textures and patterns. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the main lounge frame a spectacular vista; soft leathers bring warmth to the 9,000-foot elevation, as do individual fireplaces in the 12 guest rooms.
