The awards are determined following a survey completed by magazine’s readers. The World’s Best Awards hotel rankings are based on readers’ ratings in five categories: rooms/facilities, location, service, restaurants/food and value.
Chosen from cruises, resorts, and hotels around the world, Condé Nast Traveler 500-member Gold List is the result of nearly 80,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers’ participation in the magazine’s Readers’ Choice survey.
