Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Gold List identifies the best of the best, the gold standard of hotels, resorts, and cruise lines. Nearly 80,000 of the world's most discerning travellers (a record-setting number) produced a final selection of the very best places in the world by participating in the annual Readers' Choice survey. Consistency is rewarded: those who make the Gold List five years in a row earn Platinum Circle status.
