This carefully curated list is CNT's most diverse yet, unveiling the hotels, restaurants, and cruises around the globe that redefine the standards of hospitality through their service, design, and point of view.

Our 28th annual Hot List is the ultimate guide to planning your perfect trip for 2024 and beyond. Filled with exciting openings and reborn favourites in both familiar destinations and never-before-visited places, you can view the full list online or grab your copy of Condé Nast Traveller on newsstands today.

Highlights from this year’s list:

HOTELS: Choose from a range of standout hotels, like the Angama Amboseli in Kenya for elephant sightings amidst superb views, Raffles London at The OWO in London for grand state offices turned plush velvet quarters, or the rejuvenated Carlton Cannes, a Regent Hotel in France for a private beach, boxing ring, and sprawling peristyle garden courtyard.

CRUISES: Revel in Oceania’s first new ship in more than a decade, Vista, serving up towers of lobster, crab, and caviar. To watch icebergs glide by from the comfort of a sauna, join World Voyager’s journey to Antarctica, the latest expedition from Atlas Ocean Voyages. For top-tier amenities, including two helicopters, a massive spa, and 10 exceptional restaurants, hop on the Scenic Eclipse II.

RESTAURANTS: Taste some of the world’s best cuisine at Papa's, offering home-grown fine dining in Mumbai, while Nikkei Japanese Peruvian in Cape Town marries South American spices with bright seafood. In Buenos Aires, Trescha breathes new life into worldly flavours through a 14-course tasting menu.

With the release of the 28th annual Hot List, CNT editors have once again created the best resource for all things travel.

The full list of winners can be found online at and in the May/June issue of Condé Nast Traveller, on newsstands in the UK today.
