Haute Grandeur is recognized as the world’s leading Awards initiative, acknowledging the finest hospitality experiences across 7 continents and more than 60 countries. Each year, the world’s premium luxury hotel and spa brands compete for the ultimate accolade in overall excellence and greatest contribution to the industry.

The positive response from the reviews of our guests through the online voting process and local expert reports, reaffirms what we believe in, a philosophy that centers around service, privacy and contentment.”

Haute Grandeur promises to raise the bar by awarding only the most exceptional hotels and spas, thereby inspiring establishments to reach even greater heights.”
