TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11: The votes are in and Bermuda has once again been crowned “Best Island in the Caribbean/Atlantic” by readers of Condé Nast Traveler magazine.

Accompanied by 250 distinguished guests, NBC Today Show host Jenna Wolfe presented the award to the Minister of Business Development and Tourism Patrice Minors at the publication’s annual Readers Choice Awards Ceremony in New York City on Monday, October 10.

Minister Minors said, “We are honoured that Bermuda was selected by Condé Nast Traveler readers as the number one travel destination among all of the Atlantic and Caribbean islands. It is a privilege to be ranked so favourably by the magazine’s globetrotting audience and also a testament to the commitment of service that our Island offers visitors every season.”

Congratulating Bermuda, Ms. Wolfe spoke warmly about the destination’s win and her love for the Island.  Ms. Wolfe was in top celebrity company with other presenters such as event hosts Christine Baranski and Chris Noth of the hit TV series “The Good Wife” as well as actress Angela Bassett, NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw and comedian Stephen Colbert.

William Griffith, director of Tourism, and Ann Shutte, director of Global Operations, were also in attendance at the event.

In addition, The Reefs was also voted best hotel in the Atlantic.
