This year’s CN Traveler ‘Gold List’ is generating some serious buzz throughout the travelsphere ... and inside our very own Flight 001 headquarters. It got each one of us thinking about the lodgings that have made lasting impressions on us. Check out a few of the awe-inspiring accommodations we can’t wait to revisit.
Singapore This one-year-old hotel in Singapore is ultra-modern and highly streamlined. But clean lines and impeccable design ensure that the space simply feels efficient, never cramped.
Baja California, Mexico This boutique hotel overlooks the ocean, and manages to combine Old World, traditionalist touches with airy, luxurious modernity. It’s also down the road from the artist colony of Todos Santos.
Hotel Chiaia di Luna
Ponza, Italy The island of Ponza (situated between Sardinia and the Italian mainland) is home to this sprawling resort. It sits on a natural amphitheater overlooking the water, and boasts stunning views of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Playa del Carmen, Mexico Each suite at this jungle- and beach-ensconced resort features an open-air, rooftop bed and its own private plunge pool. Plus, we’re told the breakfast spread is incredible.
Crown Plaza Changi Airport
Singapore This revolutionary airport hotel arguably sets the bar when it comes to door-to-door service—it’s actually connected to the terminals via monorail. However, the amenity quality is anything but ‘airport hotel.’
Taveuni Island Resort
Fiji Covering ten pristine acres, this immaculate resort only accommodates 12 couples at a time, so you’re guaranteed peace and privacy. Choose from spa treatments, diving, hiking, kayaking, or snorkeling.
Silky Oaks Lodge
Port Douglass, Australia This eco-luxury lodge is literally located in the rainforest canopy, so you’re poised to explore the Mossman Gorge River directly below. Take advantage of complimentary yoga classes, mountain bikes, kayaks, snorkeling equipment, and more.
