Each year Travel & Leisure (T+L) magazine polls its discerning reader, asking them to name the best hotel, islands, restaurants and cruise ships. Bali and its host of fine tourism products continued to rank high in the hearts and minds of T+L readers.

Despite the several problems visited upon Bali over the past year, T+L's readers have an undiminished regard for our paradise, ranking it as the best island anywhere in the world.
The World's Best Hotels
