The magazine’s 13th annual poll, published online at www.travelandleisure.com/worldsbest, features readers’ favourite hotels, spas, airlines, cruise lines, outfitters, cities and islands around the globe.

"What makes this accolade even more meaningful is that it was voted for by discerning travellers who read the magazine. We’re certainly celebrating and thanking our team whose hard work and dedication to exceptional hospitality played a huge role in gaining Travel & Leisure’s recognition." said General Manager David Onions.

The resort also secured a place in the top 25 in 2004, 2006 and 2007, and was named one of the top 500 hotels of the world in 2005 and 2009.
