It's the second year in a row the luxury hotel has topped Travel and Leisure's annual World's Best list.

100 of the world's top spots were ranked by the magazine's readers who rated hotel experiences across 86 categories.

The scores were then averaged and the Indonesian hotel got a near perfect score!

All of the rooms have private pools, and the setting is jaw dropping.

But speaking of experiences, there's world-class surfing, spa sessions, horseback riding, fishing, you name it.

The hotel is also known for its close ties to the community.

Nearly all of the staff come from the island, according to Travel and Leisure, and a foundation partly funded by hotel profits helps with local projects.

The world's second best hotel is The Brando in French Polynesia - another island paradise!

The Lodge & Spa at Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming rounds out the top three.
