EDITORS’ CHOICE AWARDS
As the world reopened this year, we were delighted to indulge in our great passion: travel, with all the discoveries (and, indeed, the decadences) that come with it. We anonymously reviewed a refreshingly normal number of hotels, restaurants, guided tours and other travel experiences. Our annual Editors’ Choice Awards highlight the best from the past 12 months.
HOTELS OF THE YEAR
Of the more than 100 we reviewed this year, these stood out the most. Each possesses a strong personality, a sense of place and a devotion to superior service.
Although we are always on the lookout for promising new hotels and resorts, a key part of our mission is revisiting previous recommendations.
RESTAURANTS OF THE YEAR
Of all the many reasons to travel, we must admit that dining is at the top of our list. Here, our favorite restaurants from last year.
