One lucky winner, one amazing prize...

It might be a luxurious private-island hideaway, where you while away the days supping margaritas in a hammock on the beach. It could be a refined country château surrounded by vineyards and home to a Michelin-adored restaurant. Maybe it'll be an all-singing, all-dancing spa retreat – or just an adorable B&B somewhere beautiful.

The only reason we can’t tell you where it is is because, well, we don’t know yet. That's where you come in... by helping us choose your favourite hotel in this all-public vote.

But here are the facts:

  • 1) Vote in the Smith Hotel Awards and you’ll be entered into a draw to win a five-night stay for two at whichever hotel brings home the award for Best Smith Hotel 2014.
  • 2) You’re going to have the time of your life.

The prize includes:

  • Two return flights to wherever in the world the winning hotel is
  • All transfers to and from the hotel
  • Use of an Avis hire car for the duration of your trip
  • A contribution towards food and drink during your stay (£1,000/US$1,500/AU$1,600)
  • An optional activity programme, tailor-made by our in-the-know team of GoldSmith travel concierges

How to enter

For your chance to win this incredible trip, all you have to do is vote! Just let us know your favourite hotels in each award category by completing the voting form above, and cross your fingers...

Good luck!
