chapelYes, tried [and got] and then ... and came up with lists that said nothing about the Bahamas. Is the May 2004 issue and article unavailable online?

ennaHi Kimberley,
Interesting indeed, however although published by the same company both magazines have very distinct readerships and consequently indentities,if only for the different travel habits of different nationalities. Conde Nast Traveller did cover Briland and the Bahamas quite recently in it's own way.
To get to the US version did you try
Best, E.

chapelHi, Enna ... it's me again. I can't find the article citing the various Bahamian properties on EITHER site ... can you help me with an actual link to the May 2004 story?

KimberlyThanks, Enna:
Given that the original article was copy-and-pasted verbatim from the Nassau Guardian online, though, I'd say that there are going to be quite a few confused travel[l]ers going to the wrong site ... any chance of Conde Nast mirroring the article at both links? Interesting issue that you may want to look into ...

ennaJust a little clarification on this, Conde Nast Traveller is published by Conde Nast Publications U.K.
This particular article came out in the U.S version, Conde Nast Traveler.
One L can make a world of difference....

Bahamas On The Hot List

The Islands Of The Bahamas are featured as a "hot" destination in Conde Nast Traveller's 'Hot List' May issue, which hit newsstands Tuesday.

This is the most prestigious issue for the publication in which writers travel incognito to pick their choices for the best of the world's hotels, destinations and restaurants.

The highly recognised and difficult to attain recognition comes in the wake of an impressive resurgence in first quarter visitor arrivals to The Bahamas.

Minister of Tourism Obie Wilchombe, who led a delegation to New York to attend a reception in honour of those named to the Hot List, received the news with delight. "Conde Nast is a highly discerning and influential publication. It wields enormous influence over trends and tastes in travel. I am delighted that we have been recognised as a "hot destination" and that several Bahamian properties were also singled out for such recognition.

"As our product offering continues to improve, we are encouraged by this recognition, which is shared by the entire country," said the minister.

In addition to the destination feature story, a number of Bahamian hotel properties most of them in the Out Islands made the Hot List for hotels, and the magazine will include editorial features on each:

Abaco: Nettie's Different of Abaco

Andros: Kamalame Cay, Tiamo

Cat Island: Fernandez Bay Village

Exuma: Four Seasons at Emerald Bay, Higgins Landing

Grand Bahama: Old Bahama Bay

Harbour Island: The Landing, Hibiscus Hill, Rock House, Pink Sands, Dunmore

Beach Club, Oceanview Club

Nassau/Paradise Island: Atlantis Resort, Ocean Club, Graycliff, Compass Point,

Little Whale Cay: Little Whale Cay Resort

Conde Nast Traveller has a monthly circulation of 776,106, and is written for readers who travel for business and pleasure to domestic and international destinations. Editorial content ranges from tips on safe travel, to budgeting, to the availability of banking services at each travel destination, as well as suggestions for vacation destinations.

For its fourth annual May Hot List features, the magazine's editorial staff sifted through the sea of hotels and restaurants that opened in the past year, and called upon a global network of editors and field reporters to visit each property - incognito.

The 36 hotels and resorts on this year's Hot List encompass 18 countries and five continents.

Conde Nast Traveller stands for "Truth In Travel." Unlike many other travel publications, Conde Nast Traveller does not accept free travel and accommodations, and its correspondents, as far as possible, travel anonymously. The result, says Conde Nast, "is travel the way consumers experience it good and bad, with reporting that is fair and honest."
