Condé Nast Traveler: The Best Resorts in the World: 2021 Readers' Choice Awards

For our 34th annual Readers’ Choice Awards survey, registered voters weighed in on their favorite resorts around the globe. As the world has begun to reopen and readjust, the results reflect the kinds of properties you longed to visit when you couldn’t travel and the ones you returned to first once you could. More than 800,000 of you filled out our survey, and while we’re always curious about where you’ve been and where you’re going, we’re especially excited to learn about the truly memorable places that sparked your imagination and stayed with you when travel seemed out of reach. Here are the 50 resorts you loved most this year.

34. Hacienda AltaGracia, Auberge Resorts Collection–Pérez Zeledon, Costa Rica

Tucked high in the mountains of Pérez Zeledon in southern Costa Rica, this 864-acre property—the first Auberge Resort in Central America—brings glamour and luxury to an otherwise rugged terrain. Its 50 spacious casitas are decked out in dark wood and leather, and outfitted with sprawling terraces overlooking the mountains or San Ysidro Valley. There’s a ton to keep nature lovers happy, including horseback riding, swimming, and a visit to the on-site organic farm. But there’s plenty of fun to be had indoors as well. The resort has three excellent farm-to-table restaurants and the largest spa in Central America, which is equipped with its own hydrotherapy center.
