Every year, Best Stay brings together the very best professionals in tourism and we are celebrating it by awarding those who really stand out in a specific area. Best Stay Awards were held for the first time in 2017, to recognise the latest and the greatest of innovative, secure, top-level solutions, companies and individuals who are really making a difference and representing the best of hospitality.
