MILL VALLEY, CALIF. (October 24, 2017) – Condé Nast Traveler announced results of its 30th annual Readers’ Choice Awards recognizing all nine of Auberge Resorts Collection resorts among the best in the world. Auberge Resorts Collection was the only brand to receive this level of recognition by the discerning readers of Condé Nast Traveler.

“Our distinctive properties offer unique guest experiences and are united by a crafted approach to luxury, expressed through captivating design, exceptional cuisine and spas, and gracious yet unobtrusive service,” said Dan Friedkin, Owner and Chairman, Auberge Resorts Collection. “It is an incredible honor to have the entire collection of resorts receive top honors by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler.”

Hacienda AltaGracia landed the top honors as the No. 1 Resort in Central America.

Chileno Bay Resort & Residences, with its contemporary style and lively Latin charm, was named the No. 1 Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler and scored among the best in all of Mexico.

Auberge’s other resorts also received high marks from readers, including the collection’s other Cabo beachfront escape, Esperanza which was among the highest-rated resorts in Mexico. The Napa Valley flagship Auberge du Soleil and nearby properties Calistoga Ranch and Solage along with historic Hotel Jerome in Aspen all received Readers’ Choice Awards for 2017. Malliouhana, the Auberge resort on the island of Anguilla was voted among the best in the Caribbean, and Nanuku, the South Pacific paradise set on the coast of Fiji, was voted as one of the top resorts in Australia and the South Pacific.

“The fact that all of our resorts have won the acclaim of the readers of Condé Nast Traveler is an acknowledgement of the efforts by our staff to deliver an unmatched level of personal service to our guests,” said Craig Reid, President and Chief Executive Officer, Auberge Resorts Collection. “Every day at each of our resorts, we deliver authentic, intimate experiences that define the destination.
