About Hospitality Asia Platinum Awards (HAPA)

The 167 nominees during the six-month search came from all over Asia – 62 from Malaysia, 48 from Singapore, 25 from Indonesia, 24 from Thailand and the remainder from Vietnam and the Philippines – indicating a significant 20 percent growth in participation since the first HAPA Regional in 2008.

In line with HAPA’s 10th anniversary this year, a new concept to the awards was introduced by recognizing the ‘Best 10 in Asia’.

All categories will have Platinum and Gold awardees. For instance, HAPA Signature Luxury Hotel category will have 5 Platinum winners and 5 Gold winners. In the Major Award categories, the top scorer amongst the Platinum winners will emerge as the ultimate winner.

Charity has always been a significant part of HAPA as a form of giving back to society. This year, they chose the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Singapore as beneficiary. The Adopt-A-Wish Programme created by the foundation allows individuals or companies to adopt and grant the heartfelt wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses.
