The program

Back and better than ever for 2023, the Luxury Travel Gold List Awards is a program that shines a light on exceptional travel services and providers from right across the globe. With 21 categories that cover experiences, hotels and operators across land and sea, the awards recognise the programs and people that facilitate truly outstanding travel. 

This year’s shortlist marks the reinvigoration of global travel, and chronicles a steady movement to ethical and eco tourism and the “slow travel” movement. Our expert  jury has created a shortlist that is born out of these industry shifts, compiling a list of exceptional travel providers who promise services that are thoughtful, considered and beautiful.  

But now we’re handing it over to you – our esteemed readers – to cast your vote in the Reader’s Choice portion of the program. Drawing from your experiences of travel, or your dreams of trips to come, we invite you to select your favourite shortlisted entry and submit your vote. Every entry doesn’t just play a vital role in determining the winners of the 2023 awards, but goes into the draw to win an amazing prize!
