We just published our list of the 30 best hotels in the world.

The Triple Creek Ranch, a luxurious resort in Darby, Montana, took the top spot on our list.

The all-inclusive luxury ranch lies 75 miles south of Missoula in the mountains of western Montana, and is renowned for its excellent service.

The resort is home to luxe cabins and offers plenty of activities to keep guests busy, such as horseback riding, hiking, fly fishing, snowshoeing, tennis, or cooking classes.

Rates start at $US950 per couple, per night, but include a private cabin, all meals, drinks, and activities.

The Montana resort bills itself as a 'luxury ranch,' and offers guests a rugged Western experience -- only minus the ruggedness.

The property is a member of the fancy Relais & Châteaux brand, and guests are treated to impeccable service and luxe amenities, like gourmet restaurants, pool, tennis court, horse stables, and more.

According to the ranch itself, it's their 'superior level of anticipatory service' that sets them apart, and has made it the best hotel in the world. According to them 'a passing remark manifests itself in an unspoken wish granted.'

The Triple Creek Ranch is located on 600 acres in the Bitterroot Mountain range of the Rockies, in southwestern Montana. From here, it's easy to see why Montana is called Big Sky Country.
