The awards are part of the fifth Mediterranean Resort & Hotel Real Estate Forum (MR&H), which is scheduled for October 29-31 at the Hilton Athens in the Greek capital.
The awards, now in their third year, were created to recognize outstanding mixed-use resorts and developments across the Mediterranean region and separate into two categories:

Nominees were shortlisted to the finalists by a group of industry experts, including the MR&H Advisory Board representing investors, developers and operators from across the resort and hotel community. Each of the resorts shortlisted are examples of hospitality operations dedicated to furthering tourism across the Mediterranean through industry leading design, guest amenities and service.
