Travel + Leisure's World's Best Awards annually honor the top hotels and travel destinations in the world and are determined by votes from hundreds of thousands of readers. Through an annual survey, readers reflect on their travel experiences over a 3-year period and rate hotels and resorts by appraising rooms and facilities, location, service, food and value.
"We strive to make each guest's visit unique and special in its own way and we are gratified that Travel + Leisure's readers regard us so highly," said Stefan Carstens, General Manager, Primland, Auberge Resorts Collection.
