Announcing the Winners of Asia’s Best Awards 2022

Here are Asia's best hotels, restaurants, bars and more, as voted by you.

Jul 9, 2022

OK, we might be biased, but what better region in the world is there for travel than Southeast Asia? With borders in such close proximity (and now mostly reopened), boasting layers upon layers of history, culture and natural wonders, you can hop from ancient adventures to glittering skylines in a snap. We’ve got some of the world’s most famous beaches, most electrifying cities, most originative designers, eye-poppers of hotels, cleverest cocktailiers (yes, we just made up that word, and don’t you love it?) and — obviously! — best food. Nobody does luxury and service like Southeast Asia. And after the past two and a half years of, let’s be honest, trauma, we thought the hospitality industry could do with a coming back out party. It’s time to celebrate travel again, so without further ado, Travel+Leisure Southeast Asia presents the winners of the first ever Asia’s Best Awards: the best hotels, resorts, restaurants, bars, spas, pools, pizza and more in Southeast Asia in 2022, as voted by you, our readers.

Please note: Asia’s Best Awards 2022 only includes nine countries in Southeast Asia, and the number of categories per country varies, mostly, in the interest of fairness, based on the amount of expert-on-the-ground intel we had when organizing the balloting. In coming years, with your help, we will be expanding our reach to celebrate more places and hospitality and travel-related establishments and people. Voting was open January through mid-April 2022.
