Cape Town (PRWEB) October 29, 2010
Readers of Condé Nast Traveller in the UK have rated Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve & Wellness Retreat amongst the top 20 travel experiences in the world, as well as the Number 1 Hotel in the Middle East, Africa and Indian Ocean Islands, in the Condé Nast Traveller Readers’ Top 100 Travel Awards for 2010.
Placed number 18 in the world on the coveted Top 100 list with an impressive score of 92.58 points, the accolade follows hot on the heels after Bushmans Kloof was announced a joint winner of the coveted title of Best Hotel for Food in Africa, Middle East and the Indian Ocean, in the 2010 Condé Nast Traveller UK Gold List earlier this year.
The Condé Nast Traveller UK Readers’ Travel Awards, now in its 6th year, is widely regarded as one of the ultimate guides to the world’s best hotels and travel destinations. The Readers’ Travel Awards questionnaire is based on criteria such as overall guest satisfaction with travel facilities, service and value for money. The results of the 2010 Readers’ Travel Awards were published in the October issue of Condé Nast Traveller magazine. With an estimated readership of over 1 million readers worldwide, it is the foremost authority in unbiased travel and destination reporting, and globally renowned as one of the world’s leading travel magazines.
Says Bushmans Kloof General Manager, Graham Kennedy: ‘We are very proud of this achievement and especially as the ‘panel of judges’ is comprised of thousands of real-time individuals whose passion is travelling. We strive to offer our guests a multi-dimensional and authentic wilderness experience, and being rated among the world’s best travel experiences is a significant feather in the cap of our team at the Bushmans Kloof lodge.’
Since its inception in 1996, this luxurious Relais & Chateaux property has consistently received world-wide recognition for its signature world-class hospitality and warm, caring service, and was voted Best Hotel in the World 2009 by Travel + Leisure in the USA.
