For the first time in India, Condé Nast Traveller presents The Gold List 2022, a selection of the world’s finest hotels, personally chosen by our editors across the world. There are two great lists annually in Condé Nast Traveller India: the Readers’ Travel Awards, which you, our beloved audience, select, and the Hot List, which compiles the new and notable openings of the previous year. This year, CNT India collaborated with teams, working in locations from California to Beijing, to put out this list of our favorite hotels and resorts in the world. The Gold List is made by humans for other humans—something we need more than ever in this day and age. Here are our favorite hotels and resorts in the world.
