10 Top-Rated Hotels and Resorts to Visit on Your Next Vacation

When it comes to Conde Naste‘s Reader’s Choice Awards, I am a self-proclaimed nerd. I await this issue all year and can’t wait to see who makes the list. In fact, I tear out the pages of the actual issue, staple them together and keep them in my scrapbook until the next year’s are released.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Conde Naste Traveler, it is essentially one of the most well known and respected travel publications in the world. Their Reader’s Choice Awards are the real deal and you will only find the best-of-the-best in accommodations listed. 100 properties, resorts, and hotels are ranked by rooms, service, food, location, design, and activities. You won’t find any ratings under 87.0, as many of the picks here go all the way up to 100. These are truly luxurious vacations, the ones dreams are made out of! Click through for the top 10 hotels and resorts in the world and visit Conde Nast for the entire list.
