The 2021 Conde Nast Traveller Readers’ Choice Awards were announced this week. Registered voters from across the globe weighed in on their favourite resorts. Resplendent Ceylon received recognition for all three resorts: Cape Weligama, Ceylon Tea Trails and Wild Coast Tented Lodge.
The Resplendent hotels were featured in the Top 25 Resorts in Asia list - Cape Weligama at #4, Ceylon Tea Trails at #8 and Wild Coast Tented Lodge at #21.
