Today, AHEAD announced the winners of the AHEAD Global 2022 hospitality design awards and its headline Ultimate Accolade. Dezeen collaborated with the brand to show the ceremony here at 1pm London time.
The AHEAD Awards is an annual programme highlighting striking hospitality around the world, split across Europe, Middle East and Africa (MEA), Asia and the Americas.
For its climactic Global leg, regional winners are pitted against each other to determine the ultimate winner in each category. The winners were announced over a digital broadcast aired on Dezeen and AHEAD's website.
This year the programme received over 630 entries spanning 60 countries, which were judged by a panel of leading hoteliers, architects, interior designers and industry experts.
Previous AHEAD winners include the Six Senses hotel by Jonathon Leitersdorf, a luxury resort in Cala Xarraca, Ibiza, which was named the winner of the spa and wellness category at the AHEAD Europe awards 2021.
NoMad London, a former prison transformed into a luxury hotel, was named Hotel of the Year for the AHEAD Europe 2021 award, while the One & Only Mandarina luxury resort in Mexico was awarded the Hotel of the Year for the AHEAD Americas 2021 award.
