Virtuoso has named the world’s five top luxury destinations for 2016 – and South Africa made it into the list! The network of luxury travel agencies released the 2016 Virtuoso Luxe Report, which named the top global destinations for 2016, along with other destination categories. On the list of top global destinations, South Africa was named in third place, beaten only by Italy and France.
South Africa was also named the top adventure destination, beating out Costa Rica and Galapagos Islands.
The results are based on the responses of elite advisors and Virtuoso is known as an industry trend forecaster.
While some may be surprised that South Africa made it into the top five, the country is not short on luxury.
Eight SA hotels were named in the world’s top 50 in the Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards.
South Africa also dominated the list of the best African hotels.
