Each individual 12 months Travel + Leisure’s World’s Very best Awards study asks audience to weigh in on their most loved inns, cruises, resorts and more. The results include things like a “100 best accommodations in the environment” record that features just about every continent — save for Antarctica, a region not accurately recognized for its four-star resorts — as very well as a California-centric list of the major 15 resorts.
The latter are clustered around some of the Golden State’s most common destinations — the Pacific coast, wine nation and that desert oasis, Palm Springs. Santa Barbara’s San Ysidro Ranch, a 550-acre expanse of bungalows, olive groves and gardens favored by a who’s who of famous people and politicos, tops the checklist. Mendocino’s Craftsman-type Brewery Gulch Inn arrives in at No. 7, and Menlo Park’s Rosewood Sand Hill will take honors in the No. 12 location. And Sonoma and Napa produced the checklist with MacArthur Place and Auberge du Soleil, respectively.
