Be recognised on the global stage as the best in your field at the annual Gold List Awards.

Since 2005, the Luxury Travel Gold List has been setting a global benchmark for luxury travel, surveying the best operators, experiences and destinations around the world to award and celebrate the best in class. With travel more desirable and valued than ever, this year’s program is dedicated to uncovering the best of the best, with a goal to platform the unique, the exceptional and the luxurious across our global network.

The 2023 awards will focus on authenticity, design and sustainability, and the way each of these play out across a range of categories that cover air, land and sea. The program will not only recognise outstanding accommodation offerings and travel operators, but also experience packages around wellness, sustainability, culture and food and wine. 

The Gold List has been flooded with entries across all 22 categories. This pool of entrants show a commitment to innovation and holistic travel which marks a global shift towards luxury travel that is built on connection to companions, culture and place.
