LLM’s prestigious Readers’ Travel Awards 2020 now open for entries

By LLM Reporters  |  February 5, 2020

Known for shining a spotlight on the finest hotels and travel destinations in the world, LLM – Luxury Lifestyle Magazine – is no stranger to hunting down the travel industry elite. This year marks the third instalment of the annual readers’ travel awards for the esteemed publication and it is thrilled to be highlighting the best in the industry.

The magazine is delighted to announce that it has once again teamed up with official sponsor Blue Bay Travel to launch the LLM Readers’ Travel Awards 2020.

This will once again be a celebration of the very best hotels, resorts, destinations and travel companies in the UK and across the globe. Scores of entries are expected from big name brands vying for one of the coveted gongs, while smaller venues and companies that are beginning to make a name for themselves in the world of travel are also likely to make a huge impact.

Nominations for the awards are officially open, with UK hotels being invited to compete in a number of categories – from ‘Best Boutique Hotel’ and ‘Best Hotel for Food’, to ‘Best Beach/Coastal Hotel’ and ‘Best Hotel for Romance’. The magazine is also inviting overseas hotels and destinations to take part, once again, as well as tour operators, airlines and cruise lines.

Nick Gibbens, editor-in-chief of LLM, said: “Travelling the length and breadth of the nation to unearth the UK’s finest luxury hotels for our readers means we know exactly what sets a venue apart from the competition. Over the past few years we have been blown away time and again by the quality and splendour on offer – just when we thought we’d seen it all another fantastic hotel pops up.

“Add to that the plethora of impressive hotels and destinations we have encountered abroad, and the incredible airlines, cruise lines and tour operators that have helped to get us there, and it’s clear that there is now a great deal out there worth celebrating when it comes to luxury travel.

“Our readers expect the very best from every aspect of every trip, and we know that they spend a great amount of time travelling throughout the year. If anyone knows what really ticks all the boxes, it’s them, and it’s for this reason that we’re leaving the final decisions in all categories up to them.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with travel experts Blue Bay Travel to bring you our third ever LLM Readers’ Travel Awards, and are really excited to see which hotels, destinations and tour operators our discerning readers want to recognise as being a cut above the rest.”
