Cannes voted Best Destination of 2017

Cannes' famous Croisette seduced the jury at the Global Awards. © Herve FabreCannes has been voted as the Best Destination of 2017 by the Luxury Travel Guide during the Global Awards, which were hosted by the World Travel Market earlier this month in London.

Over the last 12 months, the Luxury Travel Guide has compiled data on categories such as the quality of hotels and restaurants as well as travellers’ opinions regarding destinations around the world. The shortlist featured cities in Europe, Asia, Africa, the US and the Middle East, with the Top 5 including Beverly Hills, Cape Town, Kerala and West Iceland in addition to Cannes. 

It is the first time that Cannes has been honoured by the Global Awards and representatives for the city have described the accolade as ‘recognition of the dynamism of the city and its efforts to promote itself on the world stage’.
