ANDREW HARPER’S HIDEAWAY READERS VOTE AUBERGE RESORTS AMONG THEIR FAVORITE RESORTS IN THE WORLD IN 2013 READER SURVEY

MILL VALLEY, CALIF. (September 16, 2013) – Auberge Resorts properties are the choice of Andrew Harper’s Hideaway readers, according to the publication’s newly released 2013 Reader Survey, which showcases subscribers’ favorite hotels and resorts worldwide. All eligible resorts in the Auberge collection were among an elite group of properties recognized as among the very best in their categories.

The results are based on the annual independent reader survey in which Andrew Harper’s discerning subscribers vote for their favorite hotels and resorts in the categories of Beach, City, U.S. Hideaways, International Hideaways, Food and Wine, Spa, Golf, Safari and Family-Friendly. This year, 136 hotels in 115 destinations appear on the lists, which are featured in the September digital edition of Andrew Harper’s Hideaway Report.

Auberge’s Napa Valley flagship Auberge du Soleil and its East Coast counterpart, The Inn at Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina, were voted No. 5 and No. 12 on the list of 20 Top U.S. Hideaways. All three Napa Valley resorts, Auberge du Soleil, Calistoga Ranch and Solage Calistoga, were ranked among the Top 20 Food and Wine Resorts worldwide.

Auberge du Soleil was again honored, as No. 6 among the Top 20 Spa Resorts worldwide. Esperanza, an Auberge Resort in Los Cabos, Mexico, was ranked No. 6 among the Top 20 Beach Resorts and No. 6 among the Top 20 Spa Resorts. The Inn at Palmetto Bluff received additional honors as one of the Top 20 Golf Resorts and one of the Top 20 Family Resorts.

“We couldn’t be more delighted with this recognition from Hideaway Report readers, who are well-traveled and discerning,” said Mark Harmon, CEO, Auberge Resorts. “We believe we have created something very special at our properties. It’s inspiring to know that this audience values our resorts so highly.”

Hideaway Report readers are very loyal to their favorite hotels … but they are also keen to experiment and to be adventurous,” said Andrew Harper. “Much of the pleasure I derive from editing The Hideaway Report stems from the awareness that my readers are active travelers with both the inclination and the financial means to follow in my footsteps.”
