Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards Again Honor Auberge Resorts Collection Properties As Among The World’s Best
MILL VALLEY, CALIF. (October 15, 2019) – The most experienced travelers in the world have named 11 Auberge Resorts Collection hotels and resorts as among the very best in the world in Condé Nast Traveler’s 2019 Readers’ Choice Awards. Of the 10,000 properties rated by more than 600,000 readers, Auberge properties are distinguished as the highest-rated and most-admired in some of the world’s most alluring destinations.
Auberge Resorts Collection is the only brand with two properties on the list of the Top 50 Resorts in the World, with Esperanza in Los Cabos, Mexico, and Nanuku in Fiji. These two resorts also were ranked No. 1 in their respective regions of Mexico and Australia/South Pacific.
Nanuku is Auberge’s idyllic island escape renowned for its sublime beachfront setting and rich Fijian culture, where every guest feels like family. Esperanza, the romantic resort perched on a private coastal bluff, is reknowned for its culinary excellence and barefoot luxury. Also in Los Cabos, nearby sister property, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, the contemporary-cool beachfront enclave, has been honored as the No. 2 resort in Mexico West.
In Northern California, Auberge was the most-awarded luxury hotel brand, with three properties among the best in the region: Napa Valley flagship Auberge du Soleil, renowned for its culinary roots, spectacular views and exceptional service, Calistoga Ranch, a private canyon hideaway that invites immersion into nature and Wine Country culture, and Solage, a vibrant and spirited Napa Valley playground, where guests and local winemakers gather together to celebrate the Good Life .
On the opposite coast in New England, Mayflower Inn & Spa, the exquisite country estate in Washington, Conn., was honored as the No. 2 hotel in New England. The Vanderbilt, a boutique hotel set in a Gilded Age Newport, R.I., mansion, also received a Readers’ Choice accolade, giving Auberge Resorts Collection more top resorts in the region than any other luxury brand.
Malliouhana, Auberge’s glamorous oceanfront resort on the island of Anguilla, where modern sophistication meets island splendor, and private coves and sugar-white sands beckon, was voted among the best resorts in the Caribbean. Across the world and overlooking the Aegean, Grace Hotel Santorini, a cliff-top sanctuary offering the island’s best sunset views, most innovative
dining and unforgettable explorations of hidden beaches and boutique wineries, was voted one of the top resorts in Europe and Greece.
“We are thrilled and gratified that so many properties in the Auberge collection have been honored by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler,” said Craig Reid, Chief Executive Officer, Auberge Resorts Collection. “The awards reflect the efforts and passion of our remarkable staff to deliver unforgettable experiences with heartfelt care in every spectacular Auberge destination.
