Wider options for domestic categories
As travellers, we are all in a constant search for new destinations to explore luxurious new hotels to stay in. Understanding that —and taking note of the constantly evolving hospitality industry—we have added more categories this year. For instance, seeing how food is an important aspect of travelling, we’ve introduced the Best Regional Cuisine in the domestic destinations category. With this, we not only aim to end the search for the best regional foods, but also celebrate India’s diverse cuisines. India’s Best Awards 2022 also sees the rollout of the Best Road Trip Destination in India. After all, everyone loves a good road trip!
More to choose from in international categories

Similarly, the international categories of India’s Best Awards 2022 also have a wider range to choose from. While the best culinary destination aims to celebrate global cuisines, the best cultural destination does the same for a country’s arts, designs, music, and the like. In a first, this year will also allow readers to pick their favourite beach destinations!
Celebrating the best of lifestyle
The publication is also introducing the Lifestyle category. Catering to the ever-adapting need for travel essentials like Best Camera Phone, Best Beauty Travel Kit, Best Portable Speaker, and more, this category hopes to recognise the brands that have made travel easier and better.
But that’s not all! India’s Best Awards 2022 will also be honouring individuals from the travel and hospitality industry who have made a positive change in their respective fields. Titled T+L Champions, this category spans across fields like sustainable fashion, gender empowerment, community service, wildlife conservation, and more. Find out who the Champion for Women Empowerment, or Champion for Community Empowerment is. The Champion for LGBTQIA+ Rights, Champion for Responsible Travel, Champion for Community Tourism, Champion for Women’s Healthcare, Champion for Body Positivity, Champion of Wildlife Conservation, Champion of Sustainable Fashion, Champion Entrepreneur of the Year, Champion of Travel Photography, Champion of Conscious Beauty, Champion of Indian Couture, and Champion of Brand India – Design will also be revealed on the awards night.
