Condé Nast Readers’ Choice Awards – Vermejo
Curiosity. That’s what drives us all to seek out the best hotels and destinations, the most wonderful cities, the islands worth shouting about. We are always in touch with our network of writers and editors around the world about their new finds, the under-the-radar hangouts we think you need to know about. But we’re also very aware that you, as the reader, love to travel, and get to all sorts of places, making all-new discoveries. And we’re just as curious about where you go, what you loved, and who you went with. This is why we call on you year after year to let us know which places and players you admire the most. For our 32nd annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey—yes, more than three decades—you were louder than ever. A record 600,000 registered voters weighed in, and your responses can be found across the links below. Of nearly 10,000 hotels, resorts, and destination spas rated, barely 15 percent made the cut. Resorts in Greece earned their own list this year, and across the seas, tiny St. Barts and a very resilient Puerto Rico, post hurricanes, are your go-to places in the Caribbean once again. Crystal Cruises nabbed top spots in not one but three categories, competing against ships that float more than 4,000 passengers. Wellness retreats also got a category for the first time, as did luxury train journeys. As you continue to travel, we continue to listen: Here’s what you loved most this year.
