The results are in, and our clients are winners of the World’s Best Awards! The renowned travel awards program is run by Travel + Leisure and based on an annual reader survey. From November 7, 2016 to March 6, 2017, readers were asked to share their opinions and rate travel businesses across a variety of categories, including airlines, cities, destination spas, hotels, islands, tour operators, safari outfitters and more. This year, we are proud to announce that some of our clients have taken home the award in best hotels, best safari outfitters and best islands!
Saxon Hotel, Villas & Spa is a favorite among T+L readers – it has placed on the list 9 times over the past 10 years. Perhaps it’s the secluded location, the eye-catching design or the 200+ works of art by South African artists that keeps the property in demand. Paving the way for five-star stays in Johannesburg, The Saxon has been this city’s sole property on the list for 2 years running.
Coming in at #3, Le Quartier Francais is a warm and breathtaking 21-room boutique hotel in the heart of Franschhoek and South Africa’s wine country. The dreamy accommodations are equipped with private pools, walk-in dressing rooms, secret gardens and every imaginable amenity. Noted by T+L for its unsurpassed dining experience and outstanding wine selection, it is not surprising that Le Quartier Francais was rated highly by readers.
The specialists on the safari outfitters list go above and beyond to organize the ultimate African adventure, so it’s no wonder Micato Safaris is right at the top at #2! Micato is a Travel + Leisure Hall of Fame honoree, having been on the list every year since World’s Best began in 1996 and placing #1 a record nine times! Their cheerfully relentless dedication to service and innovation and deep-rooted familial values make Micato a true crowd-pleaser.
Snagging two spots in the top 15 list is the British Virgin Islands, with Virgin Gorda coming in at #4 and Jost Van Dyke coming in at #10. The BVI is one of the most breathtaking destinations in the world, rich with pristine beaches, diverse marine life and 60 islands each defined by their own beauty. The iconic beaches and famous baths of Virgin Gorda and Jost Van Dyke’s roaming wildlife are just some of the features that make the BVI such a winner.
– A huge congrats to the winners from the JG Collection!
