Being tiny in size does not mean you do not pack a punch. Cottages and lodges are usually the ideal choice for many to enjoy the rustic landscape, gifting nature to those who wishes to enjoy it.
A cottage or lodge is never tiny; just small-scale, which means way more quirky, unconventional and perhaps even regal designs that may wow us all!
In Muse Hotel Awards, a cottage and lodge can stand alongside the bigwigs of big hotels and institutions, being validated the same way as they are. Join us and be endorsed as the best cottage and lodge there is.

Tips & Requirements
Up to 10 images (JPG/PDF) and 1 PDF can be submitted per entry. For best results, please ensure that your images are in jpg/png format cropped to a 4:3 format, being at least 1920px wide and no larger than 4MB.

Entries should also include as much details as possible, including images of each side of the building or environment along with the contextual surroundings. Please include floor and small-scale (8.5”x11”) site plans showing the project in its context.
In the case that the project is a group of buildings, entrants should provide a rendering that fully illustrates the complete project. If the entry contains an alteration or restoration, please include both “before” and “after” images.
Entries can be submitted as completed, in-process or conceptual works.
Description of the project should be limited to 500 words or less.
Anyone can vote online during the designated voting season.
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 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.
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 and 100 points are Regal Winners. Entries with a score between 60 and 84 points are Royal Winners.
Winners and the Gala Awards Ceremony
Winners are determined after the judging is concluded at the end of the voting season, and interim results are then released to the respective hotels. Participants will be invited to attend the Gala Awards Ceremony, where the official winners are announced, also revealing the category and level of the award achieved (Regal Muse / Royal Muse).
