Wanderlust’s prestigious annual awards night, honouring the greatest achievements in the Asian hospitality industry was held last week in Bali.

Wanderlust honoured numerous prestigious award categories to individuals and groups through The Best Hotels & Resorts Awards 2023. The grand ceremony took place on 20 October 2023 at the luxurious Sofitel Bali Nusa Dua Beach Resort.

The awards draw inspiration from the countless meaningful career journeys that exemplify a deep passion for promoting tourism, and therefore, they recognise the efforts of hotels and resorts in providing the most fantastic getaways for travellers.

As many as 50 award categories were given out to exceptional hotel brands and outstanding individuals in two main categories: awards for specific services and activities of hotels and resorts and awards for hotel and resort leaders.

Best Hotels & Resorts Awards 2023 attracted distinguished representatives from tourism agencies in various countries, senior leaders from hotel groups, and influential figures within the tourism community. Additionally, the evening was captivated by a series of performances, including from one of Asia’s leading violinists, Hoang Rob.
