Hotel Award Procedures


It is a consumer based programme whereby your guests submit reviews about your establishment to the organisers.

The Awards are exclusive to Luxury Hotels, Lodges, Resorts, Hotel Groups and do not include any other areas of the travel industry.

Winners are announced and presented with their recognition at the annual World Luxury Hotel Awards™ Gala Ceremony. The final outcome will be based upon votes per category on a country and global basis. Participating hotel representatives will have the option to book seats in advance to attend the Gala Ceremony in order to avoid disappointment. It is not imperative for a hotel to be represented at the annual Gala Ceremony. Events are universally acknowledged & intended to not only celebrate excellent achievements but also to establish a networking platform for industry leaders.

Upon registration and once the Awards outcome has been announced the official World Luxury Hotel Awards marketing logos will be provided to each participating property. Participants should update their email signatures, websites, marketing brochures, press material and other marketing related areas with the official material in order to create maximum awareness.

The World Luxury Hotel Awards™ annual e-brochure & ultimate hotel guide are distributed on an annual basis to promote all participants on the global front. Travel agents, tour operators and hotel guests use these as a guideline to book luxury accommodation.


Luxury Hotels can self-nominate, be nominated by guests, travel agents or tour operators in order to participate in the World Luxury Hotel Awards™. Winners in a particular year will automatically be nominated to participate in the following year.

Once we receive nominations, evaluations are done by a selected global panel of consultants situated amongst 144 countries. Further to each official entry the World Luxury Hotel Awards arrange an ‘official’ and/or ‘mystery’ site visit. Successful nominations will be invited to participate in the World Luxury Hotel Awards.
