(8/20/2005)

Somehow it just doesn't seem fair to all the other islands in the world.

But, Travel + Leisure Magazine has just published the results of its readers' survey naming the best destinations, hotels, resorts and travel products [The World's Best Awards] with Bali named for an unprecedented fourth time as the world's best island destination.

In the related sub-category of best Asian island destinations, Bali retained its top post followed by Phuket and the Maldives in 2nd and 3rd place, respectively.

Bali: Home to the Best Hotels & Resorts

Complementing Bali's continuing reign as the world's best island were no less than four Bali hotels ranking among the planet's very best hotels – with a Bali property garnering the poll position as [Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan] was named the world's best hotel. Its sister property in Bali, [Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay] ranked number 8 in the list of very best hotels, with [The Amandari] claiming the number 14 spot followed by [The Amankila] in Manggis at the number 21 position.

Asia's Best Hotels

In the subcategory of the "Best Hotels in Asia," Bali's performance was no less dazzling.

• #1 Hotel in Asia - [Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan]

• #2 Hotel in Asia - [Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay]

• #7 Hotel in Asia - [The Amandari]

• #8 Hotel in Asia - [The Amankila]

• #15 Hotel in Asia - [The Ritz Carlton Bali, Resort & Spa]

Hotels $250 or Less

In the Travel + Leisure ranking of the best hotels in the world costing US$250 or less per night, [The Grand Hyatt] claimed the #14 position.

Hotels to Watch

Another Bali property showed up in the Magazine's list of up and coming "15 hotels to watch." Como Hotel's [The Uma Ubud] was seen by the readers surveyed as a hotel destined for eventual stardom in future Travel + Leisure polls.

Top Small Hotels

In another special sub-category of the very best hotels with 100 or fewer rooms, [Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan] again took the #1 spot with [The Amandari] in Ubud ranked at #11.

Top Hotel Spa

Bali did itself no less proud in the competition to be named the World's Best Hotel Spa:

• # 1 Hotel Spa in the World - [Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay]

• #2 Hotel Spa in the World - [Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan]

• # 6 Hotel Spa in the World - [The Ritz Carlton Bali, Resort & Spa]

Getting Here is at Least Half the Fun

Don't be put off by the distance between your location and the island of Bali.

Travel + Leisure also ranked the world's 10 best international airlines. Of the 10 airlines named – 8 fly to Indonesia meaning getting to Bali promises to be a most enjoyable travel experience.

In case you're wondering, the world's best airline according to the Travel + Leisure poll is Singapore Airlines - operating 3 flights daily to the island of Bali.
