About the Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards

More than 128,000 travelers took part in our 28th annual Condé Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards survey—the most in its history—submitting millions of ratings and tens of thousands of comments to help us create a list of winning favorites. The breadth of their top-rated experiences was impressive, from elegant castles in the Irish countryside to tented safari camps trailing the Great Migration across the Serengeti. They chose tiny private islands in the tropics, small culture rich cities in Europe, and intimate river cruises. Most notably, they declared a passion for the authentic, the personalized, the unexpected—finding all three in both newcomers and stalwarts around the world. Here are all the results, including our web-only exclusive list of the 100 Best Hotels & Resorts in the World.
