Hello world, version 2023! We spent most of 2020 and 2021 champing at the bit to travel, but over the last 12+ months, most of the world has finally reopened. And judging by tourism numbers, Asia Pacific is unmissable on most travelers’ itineraries. So, we have plenty of reasons to celebrate, and what better way than crowning our beautiful region’s best establishments and experiences, and the personalities who keep the cogs well oiled and us lucky travelers living in luxury?

With Travel + Leisure Luxury Awards Asia Pacific 2023, we’re aiming to not only do more of what we do best, but also hopefully do it better: shed light on the places and people that make our region No. 1 in the world for hospitality. (Yes, we said it.)

We’ve rounded up the cream of the crop spanning a variety of categories, from five-star urban escapes to private-island beach resorts, innovative spas, IG-worthy swimming pools, awesome airlines and airports, cruises, travel agents, enticingly immersive travel experiences, and more in Australia, Cambodia, Laos, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Maldives, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, the South Pacific, Thailand and Vietnam.

The category types vary by country to account for the different sizes and strengths of the industries in different places. There’s no pay to play, nominees were selected by the T+L SEA team of editors and expert contributors across Asia Pacific, and voting is open to anyone anywhere through April 30, 2023. There’s even a nominations section, so you can submit for consideration any worthy ideas we may have missed.

Our readers are the true travel tastemakers and the ones we most want to impress, so don’t wait to make your mark. Vote for the Travel + Leisure Luxury Awards Asia Pacific 2023 today.
