Bermuda (www.gotobermuda.com) has been voted “Best Island in the Caribbean & Atlantic” for the 11th year according to Condé Nast Traveler’s 26th annual Readers’ Choice Awards, ranking the best cities, islands, cruise lines, airlines, hotels, and resorts in the world.

“We are thrilled to once again be recognised as the top island in the region and thank the readers of Conde Nast Traveler for this tremendous honour,” said The Hon. Shawn Crockwell, JP, MP Bermuda’s Minister of Tourism Development and Transport. “This award demonstrates that the level of service and hospitality the island provides to our visitors is meaningful and appreciated.”  

In the survey, one reader touted Bermuda for its "fun blend of British, American, and Caribbean Culture." Proving Bermuda offers “So Much More than anywhere else, one reader cited "endless activities: historical sites, golf, scooters, superb shopping and dining, museums, gardens, perfumeries and aquariums, too!" The island’s "lovely scenery," highlighted by signature "pink sand beaches and aqua blue waters," was another reason it scored such high marks among visitors.

In addition to Bermuda’s top island honour, several Bermuda resort properties were ranked highly in the Conde Nast Traveler poll including The Reefs, which was again voted the Top Resort in The Atlantic. Other Bermuda properties among the “Top 15 Resorts in The Atlantic” were: Pompano Beach Club (2nd), Rosewood Tucker’s Point (6th), Cambridge Beaches (tied for 8th) and Fairmont Southampton (14th).

The Readers’ Choice Awards are announced in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler, on newsstands and online now. This year, Condé Nast Traveler had a record-breaking 79,268 readers participate in the survey, close to double the number of survey takers in 2012. These dedicated and discerning travelers cast 1.3 million votes for more than 16,000 properties around the world.
