The Gallivanter's Guide 10th Annual Reader Poll was conducted over the last 10 months of 2001 to determine which hotels and hotel groups that publication's circle of dedicated travelers considered the very best. A privately-published newsletter sent to paid subscribers looking for the most idyllic holiday destinations, a citation in The Gallivanter's Guide reader poll is considered a high honor in hotel circles.

As you might expect, Bali and Yogyakarta (Central Java) hotels made an excellent showing in the poll among these very-much-in-the-know travellers.


Yogyakarta's Amanjiwo near Borobudur Temple in Central Java ranked Number 3 worldwide, after the top-ranked The Peninsula, Hong Kong and The Peninsula, Bangkok.


Indonesian properties took 3 of the top 4 positions in this category - The Peninsula, Hong Kong was named the very best, followed by the Amankila, Bali at #2; Amanjiwo in Yogyakarta at #3 and The Four Seasons Resort at Jimbaran Bay in Bali as #4 for service.


When Gallivanter's readers were asked to name the best hotel groups worldwide, the top four groups named were all companies with properties in Bali. #1 group was Four Seasons Hotel & Resorts; #2 Amanresorts; cited as the #3 hotelgroup The Ritz Carlton Hotel Company; and #4 went to the Oberoi Hotels & Resorts.


Of the top 9 resorts in the Asia/Pacific, Indonesia properties dominated the rankings, winning 6 of the top 9 rungs. Named #1 was Bali's Amankila; #2 went to Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay; #3 was awarded to the Amanpulo resort in the Philippines; #4 to the Amanjiwo in Central Java; #5 to its sister hotel the Amandari in Bali; #6 ranking went to the Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa; #7 for the Amanpuri in Thailand; #8 was awarded to the Amanusa in Bali; and #9 to the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan.


In this category, Yogyakarta's Amanjiwo was named number 2; the Amankila in Bali was number 5; the Amandari in Bali at number 7; and the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan at the number 9 spot.


While The Oriental Bangkok got the very top spot, the Four Seasons Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay was cited as having the 5th best Spa.


Winning the very top spot for the best food - The Four Seasons Hotel group which operates 2 properties in Bali.
