The MUSE Hotel Awards is a prestigious global organization dedicated to recognizing and identifying world-class hotels for their facilities, design, amazing locations and inspired guest services.
We want to bring out the best of world-class hotels and other hospitality establishments in the world. Each year, thousands of international travelers and industry stars vote on their favorite establishment during a month-long period to determine the winners. World-class hotels can enter the MUSE Hotel Awards by selecting hotel categories that highlights their extraordinary locations, facilities, designs and top notch guest services.
Achieve the highest peak of achievements in the hospitality industry today
MUSE Hotel Awards signify an accomplishment for many establishments, allowing them to earn respect and loyalty from both guests and industry peers. With 137 categories to enter from, your entries will be judged through independent evaluation, award panel voting (50%) and a public voting process (50%). Winning from MUSE Hotel Awards is not just an accolade to be displayed; it is a sign for many more amazing achievements to come, from new growth and innovations even when the trends change.
The MUSE Awards competition is designed for the convenience of the entrant by entering online and uploading your entries.
Any luxury hotel is eligible, regardless of property size. We seek to honor inspired guest services and experiences that create lasting memories for guests.
MUSE Hotel Awards categories are divided in 5 main hotel categories - Hotel, Resort & Spa, Cottage & Lodge, Villa and Boutique Hotel.
VIEW ALL CATEGORIES
During voting season, anyone can vote for their favorite luxury hotel. The accumulated votes will form 50% of the total score.
Entries are judged at random without comparison to other entries in a category. Judging is blind. All entrant information is removed from entries to prevent bias/conflict of interest. Judges will score on a scale of 1-100 based on the hotel's luxury experience, excellence, uniqueness, reputation, brand awareness, and personalization. What we most look for is the flair, character and feel of an experience that makes it unique.
Hotels owners/representatives may self-nominate (enter directly) for the MUSE Hotel Awards or be nominated by guests, travel agents or tour operators through the user-friendly form on our website. Consistent feedback from guests about their visits also help us in evaluating properties for eligibility. Qualifying hotels will be formally invited (or accepted) for participation and registration in the awards program. Accepted nominees are automatically invited to participate in the following year’s awards.
The judges' evaluation score (50%) and public voting (50%) on the hotel will be submitted to the panel and will form the basis for their decision to confirm the winning status of each hotel. Winners with a score between 85 to 100 points will be awarded the Regal Muse, whereas winners with a score between 60 to 84 points will be awarded the Royal Muse.
