Cast your online votes for the Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Awards 2016
When boutique hotels website Mr & Mrs Smith set out to do something, you can expect it to be anything but usual. From surprising guests with Aesop amenities in Smith-approved villas to complimentary spa treatments to shake off jet lag, it's purely business unusual. In keeping with their modus operandi, the return of their annual Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Awards sees over 1000 hotels vying in 12 esoteric categories — ranging from World's Sexiest Bedroom to Hottest Hotel Soundtrack.
This year, the line-up of international judges includes three familiar faces from Singapore: Javier Perez, founder of our favourite restaurants Camp Kilo Charcoal Club and Grain Traders; International media personality and #FriendOfBuro Anita Kapoor; and Norman Tan (infamously known as @MusingMutley), our very own editor in chief of Buro 24/7 Singapore. Kapoor will help to suss out hotels with exceptional levels of service in the Above and Beyond category while Perez puts his F&B training to good use by determining which hotel deserves to wear the Best Gourmet Getaway crown. In the Local Hotel Hero category, Tan will take a look at the hotels that find time to give back to the local community (very much like our recent #BuroGivesBack initiative in Nepal).
As for you, dear reader, you'll get a chance to vote your favourite hotel in for the most coveted award of all — Best Smith Hotel 2016. You have till 30 September to cast your votes, and who knows, you might very well walk away with a £1,000 Smith gift card.
