Conde Nast Traveler announced the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Awards with Half Moon recognised as #13 of the Top 50 Resorts in the Caribbean and the top Jamaica resort.

More than 600,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers across the globe submitted a record-breaking number of responses rating their travel experiences to provide a full snapshot of where and how we travel today. The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel”.

“Half Moon is humbled and honoured to be voted as one of the Top 50 Resorts in the Caribbean,” said Guy Steuart III, chairman of Half Moon, one of the Caribbean’s most iconic destinations. “Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards are particularly distinctive to us as the recognition stems directly from our beloved guests’ experiences at Half Moon.”

Half Moon provides guests the opportunity to indulge in luxury, adventure, and culture, curating unforgettable experiences on a daily basis.

Furthermore, guests are privileged with access to the award-winning Sugar Mill restaurant, recognised as Jamaica’s best, and the property’s Ital Café, featuring a vegan-friendly spa cuisine concept created for Half Moon by Aris Latham, considered to be the father of gourmet ethical raw cuisine in America.
