Condé Nast Traveler’s (CNT’s) Readers’ Choice Awards are based on the comments and ratings of more than 300,000 of the magazine’s readers and the site’s users. The 29th annual lists not only cover the best hotels, resorts, cruises, islands, and cities in the world, but also reveal the best hotels and resorts in Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Australia, and the Pacific, Central, and South America, the Caribbean and the Atlantic, Canada, Mexico, and the United States.

Like other noted travel magazines and sites that issue “best of” awards, Condé Nast Traveler’s chosen reflect the preferences and personalities of their readers and users. In other words, CNT’s anointed most often — but not always – require deep-pockets to enjoy.
