Destinations include Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Maldives, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam and more, with categories varying to account for different sizes and strengths of the industries in each place. Awards will go to the reader-voted best City Hotels, Resorts, Hotel Pools, Hotel Spas, and Hotel General Managers and more.

“BurdaLuxury and our brands have been renowned for decades as the ultimate authority in the luxury lifestyle space,” said Björn Rettig, CEO of BurdaLuxury. “We are thrilled to bring this focus to Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, Hong Kong & Macau with the launch of the Luxury Awards Asia Pacific 2023.

Reflecting Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia Hong Kong & Macau’s recent addition to the BurdaLuxury portfolio, the inaugural Luxury Awards includes new categories that spotlight the very best in luxury, including integrated resorts, cruises, and experiences, a new category created in partnership with Techsembly. BurdaLuxury and Techsembly will also be partnering on a new luxury travel marketplace, a platform offering a curated selection of bucket-list experiences from the world’s leading hotels. Combining luxury lifestyle content with worldly experiences and inspirational travel tips, the platform will launch on the Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia Hong Kong & Macau website in Q2 this year.

Jeninne Lee St. John, Editor-in-Chief of Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, Hong Kong & Macau said: “In celebration of both this partnership and the efforts some of the region’s top hotels make to give their guests the most luxurious, culturally immersive, exclusive, and out-of-the-box encounters and adventures, the inaugural Luxury Awards will include a category for best experiences. Voters will be able to peruse the coolest of Techsembly’s curated offerings and cast their ballot for their favourites. These experiences plus many, many more will be available for purchase on the Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, Hong Kong & Macau marketplace once it launches.”

As part of Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia, Hong Kong & Macau’s brand ethos and commitment to recognise and reward excellence in the hospitality industry, nominees were selected by the brand’s team of editors and expert contributors across Asia Pacific.
