More than 20,000 readers were asked to nominate the hotels and spas they escape to, as well as the islands, cities, and countries that spark their curiosity.

Meanwhile, Green Destinations, a non-profit foundation for sustainable tourism, also recently unveiled its Top 100 Sustainable Stories award, which includes Club Paradise Palawan, making the resort the only Philippine property that made it to the list. 

The Top 100 Sustainable Stories award recognizes global destinations that are taking incremental steps and making promising progress towards a more sustainable tourism industry. Its goal is to share these destinations’ innovative and effective sustainability tourism stories and good management practices as inspiring examples for others.
