September 09, 2012 - Awards

The results have been announced!

After hundreds of trips and memorable experiences this year, Condé Nast travellers have entered their votes and the verdict is in:  Singita Grumeti ranks #1 and Singita Sabi Sand #9 in the Middle East, Africa and India Ocean.

Not only that, but we are thrilled to announce that Condé Nast Traveller (UK) readers are convinced that Singita Grumeti is worthy of the #2 spot overall in the world in all categories, second only to the country of Italy.  So effectively the #1 hotel in the world.

What a year and a great follow-on to the Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards in July when Singita Grumeti was voted #1 in the world overall by T+L readers.
