Travel + Leisure Magazine’s latest "Best Of" lists don’t include St. John. In fact the best island and hotel lists, based on the magazine’s readers’ votes, don’t include any Virgin Island or resort. They didn’t last year, either.
Two properties on St. Barth’s, about 150 miles east of the VI’s, did make the list: (73) Hôtel Saint-Barth Isle de France and (74) Eden Rock.
Nancy Novogrod, editor-in-chief of the magazine said, “This year’s results underline T+L readers’ ever-increasing embrace of global travel in their search for distinctive and authentic experiences. The extraordinary rise of India among the top hotels and resorts in the world is one sure reflection of this tendency."
Travel + Leisure’s "Best Of" lists are included in the August issue, now on newsstands and online at http://www.travelandleisure.com/worldsbest.
