The Boutique Hotel Awards is the first and only international awards organisation exclusively dedicated to recognising unique excellence among luxury boutique hotels and is the only independent awards organisation in hospitality where each and every property is visited personally by an experienced hotel judge. Entrants are either self-nominated or selected by a committee of travel experts and hotel guests.

The judges ensure that each property is capable of transporting guests to another world by experiencing the hotel’s own unique culture and stylistic flair. The evening also brings together members of The Master Key Society; where relationships are built exclusively among the Award Winners by facilitating mutual hotel exchange visits. With over 300 nominees from more than 80 countries, winning hotels are determined by evaluating the following criteria:

  • Concept
  • Dining and Entertainment
  • Design
  • Facilities
  • Location
  • Staff Service
  • Overall Emotional Impact
