By Journey to Greece on October 22, 2018

Recently, the Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards 2018 saw readers answer survey questions in order to determine a list of the favorites. The results were somewhat surprising, with a lot of the smaller, quieter hotels and resorts from around the continent being chosen as some of the best in the world.

When it comes to quiet and peaceful hotels, Mystique, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Santorini was voted the top pick for Hotels in Greece and Turkey as well as a very impressive 4th place in the Top 10 Hotels in Europe. If you have taken a look at any pictures of this stunning getaway then you will already know that it is perfect for couples looking for that romantic trip away. With stunning views, carved into the rugged Caldera cliffs, this beautiful resort definitely deserved its top spot.

Another two hotels from The Luxury Collection, that claimed top spots, were Hotel Grande Bretagne and King George Hotel, in Athens, both winning spots in the Top Hotels in Greece and Turkey. This is the third consecutive time that they have received awards in this category, which just goes to show how valued they are for their customer care and luxury services.

Located in Elounda, at the famed island of Crete, Blue Palace, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa has been awarded with the 6th place in the Top 25 Resorts in Europe, yet again. A resort that has attracted multiple awards in the past years and has garnered recognition for its unique design, architecture and caring luxury guests care.

Santa Marina, a Luxury Collection Resort & Villas, Mykonos and Vedema, a Luxury Collection Resort, Santorini, were also voted into the top spots in this category. Mykonos and Santorini are always among the favorite international summer destinations and the two resorts seem to be of the top choices, when it comes to natural beauty and luxury services.
