“Travel + Leisure’s annual World’s Best Awards provide a picture of what the world’s most discerning travelers are finding most satisfying in travel right now. What’s clear to me this year is how much they are drawn to experiences that aren’t just enjoyable but provide something richer—cultural immersion, mental and physical wellbeing, a true sense of adventure,” said Travel + Leisure Editor in Chief Nathan Lump. “It’s not easy to satisfy this group, but the destinations, hotels, and companies that are doing it know that today’s traveler cares about a lot more than creature comforts.”
The Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards are based on the annual Travel + Leisure World’s Best survey, where 300,000 readers shared their opinion of their favorite travel providers and experiences. In the 22nd annual survey, readers rated hotels based on room and facilities, location, service, restaurants and food, and value.
