Travel + Leisure Magazine has concluded its annual survey of the discerning travelers who comprise its readership asking them to name their favorite cities, islands, hotels, resorts, airlines, cruise ships and even rental car agencies.

Bali: World's Best Island

For many years, Bali consistently ranked as the world's best island in the prestigious poll, slipping momentarily in the 2008 polling to the number two slot. However, the 2009 Travel + Leisure survey has returned Bali to the coveted #1 spot, followed by Galapagos, which displaced Bali in the 2008 rankings.

The World's Best Hotels

In year's past, Bali has secured a number of hotels in the list of the world's best 100 hotels. However, the 2009 survey saw only one Bali property [Ayana Resort and Spa] listed in the "top 100."

The Ayana Resort and Spa is the re-incarnation of the former Ritz-Carlton Bali, Resort & Spa, following a parting of the ways earlier this year between the Indonesian owners and Ritz-Carlton.

In the latest survey, the Ayana Resort & Spa earned the "13th best" in Travel + Leisure's ranking of the "Top 15 Resorts in Asia."

The entire list of the "World's Best" in Travel according to Travel + Leisure [:The World's Best]
