Plus, in a first, an editorially-led Tastemakers category has also been added to the mix. In short, this year, is bigger, better and fresher!

When vacationing, often it’s the hotels and their culinary offerings that make or break a holiday. So it’s only fair to award your favourites for doing such a stellar job! Vote for restaurants in hotels that offer the Best Sunday Brunch or those that pamper you with the Best Service. Cheer for those all-day dining restaurants that cater to your late-night binges or those that bring delicious meals right at your doorstep with their food delivery service. There’s cuisine-specific categories too—think, Best European Cuisine, Best Pan-Asian Cuisine, Best Indian Cuisine, Best Bakery, and Best Farm-to-table.
Raise a toast for the best bars in these hotels—such as the ones that offer the best cocktails, best rooftops, or the best sundowner. In a first, you can even vote for your favourite brewery in a hotel.
