First of all – if you nominated us and are reading this – Thank You! It means a lot that people took the time to put Chaa Creek in the running.
Secondly, for those of you unfamiliar with the awards, here’s a brief rundown:
Thirty-one years ago, Condé Nast asked their readers to fill out a ballot (remember those days of pen and paper?) and vote for their favourite destinations and places to stay. They then published the results, so travellers could share information about their favourite places. It was a popular concept that took off, with 429,000 people responding last year.
And it’s a two way street – Condé Nast gets a lot of information from travellers, and readers get information on the most popular destinations to visit, hotels and resorts to stay at, tour operators to use, and so on.
We like it because it’s by and for people like you and us – travellers. And it’s based on real life experiences, not promotions or advertising.
And the cool part, in Condé Nast’s words, is that “Every time you submit a completed rating, you’ll be entered to win a dream vacation for two. The more you vote, the more chances you have to win!”
First prize has us excited – a three-night weekend for two in New York City at the luxurious Chatwal Hotel, with a pre-theatre dinner at The Lambs Club. Round trip airfare and all the bells and whistles included.
Second prize is three nights for two at the Belmond Hotel Splendido (we like the sound of that) in Portofino, Italy, with a cooking class with Chef Roberto Villa.
And the perks keep on coming:
“PLUS: Invite your friends, and get an extra entry when they complete their first survey. The more you share, the more chances you get.”
There are several ways to enter – you can still do it on paper, but by far the easiest is to visit the website:
and follow instructions.
Entries opened April 1, 2019, and close June 30, 2019, so, in the immortal words of British rocker T Rex, “Get it on!”
(Banging a gong is optional)
You’ll not only be voting for your favourite hotel, you’ll be contributing to the global hospitality industry by letting them know what you like and dislike, help identify trends, improve products and services, and let your fellow globetrotters know about destinations you consider to be excellent.
And, once again – we are grateful to have been nominated, and look forward to seeing how we rank in a world full of great resorts in wonderful destinations.
Thank you in advance for participating, and good luck!

“You voted, we listened.”
