Gold List 2016

Here are the winners and finalists of our annual Gold List Awards for 2016 where you, our readers, vote for the best luxury travel operators and destinations. Now in its 12th year, the awards recognise the ultimate in luxury travel in Australia and around the world. 

This year, we have invited a small, select group of specialist luxury travel agents who send their clients daily to discover the world’s most exciting and luxurious properties and travel experiences. Here, they share their nominated preferences across several categories. Our editorial team has also chosen a wider selection of editor’s picks this year, based on our expert knowledge and travels to new luxury properties and operators around the world.

Thank you to the thousands of readers and Virtuoso clients who took the time to vote online.

Congratulations to all of this year’s winners.

 

Italy has so much to offer a luxury traveller – amazing hotels and villas, gorgeous scenery and enticing food and wine experiences – and you’ve chosen it as your favourite country for another year.
