Each individual yr Travel + Leisure’s World’s Very best Awards survey asks readers to weigh in on their favored motels, cruises, resorts and additional. The final results include things like a “100 best lodges in the globe” checklist that includes each continent — conserve for Antarctica, a region not particularly identified for its four-star resorts — as effectively as a California-centric checklist of the prime 15 resorts.
The latter are clustered all around some of the Golden State’s most popular destinations — the Pacific coast, wine state and that desert oasis, Palm Springs. Santa Barbara’s San Ysidro Ranch, a 550-acre expanse of bungalows, olive groves and gardens favored by a who’s who of celebs and politicos, tops the list. Mendocino’s Craftsman-design Brewery Gulch Inn comes in at No. 7, and Menlo Park’s Rosewood Sand Hill can take honors in the No. 12 spot. And Sonoma and Napa created the checklist with MacArthur Place and Auberge du Soleil, respectively.
