Unique? Over-the-top luxury? Cool design? The Hottest Property Award recognizes properties that simply have that “wow” factor. Whether they are forward thinking in design, have cool features (like an infinity pool over a mountain or 80s nostalgic game room with pinball and arcade), the hottest properties are the types that go viral on social media. Show to us that your property is the hottest place of the year, and how you transformed it into a visual phenomena.

Applicants must show us that WOW factor, whether it’s through design, aesthetic, architecture or amenities. Judging will also be based on the property’s originality (what makes it unique/stand out), innovation (design and comfort) and how photogenic it is (is it the type to go viral on Instagram?). Attention to detail, exceeding expectations in comfort and cool factors are considered.
