We scour the streets of Hong Kong on a daily basis to bring you the best of what we feel this city has to offer, but now we want to hear what you think! For the first time in four years, and in honour of Sassy Media Group’s tenth anniversary year, we are launching the Sassy Best Of Hong Kong Reader Awards. It’s an opportunity for you to tell us about all your go-to businesses and brands, in return for the chance to win a two-night stay at an eight-bedroom villa with two pools in Koh Samui courtesy of The Luxe Nomad* (worth USD $4,600).

Inasia, Lipa Noi, Koh Samui

“Inasia” is a stunning beachfront villa on the shores of Lipa Noi, perfect for a weekend retreat from Hong Kong. There’s plenty of entertainment on offer, with satellite TV, a DVD player, indoor and outdoor sound system, board games, a pool table and a Nintendo Wii at your disposal. Did we mention that there’s also an in-villa chef? Expect to be munching on some mean banana fritters, as well as a delicious selection of Thai, Western and Chinese dishes. And if you manage to drag yourself off your sun lounger, there’s also volleyball, kayaks and stand-up paddle boards on hand.

So now that we’ve got your attention, here’s how it works. Make sure cast your vote below on everything from your favourite bar, free-flow brunch and restaurant, to your top yoga studio and regular spa. The awards will 100% be voted for by you, our readers, and is our way of giving back to the places that make Hong Kong such a great place to live. And for the first time ever, we’re also going to be recognising individual people, so don’t forget to shout out about your favourite entrepreneurs and changemakers. Don’t feel like you have to answer every single question, you can simply skip any that don’t apply to you.

Of course, we’ll be throwing a big bash to celebrate all the winners at a top secret party venue in June. Everyone who casts a vote will automatically be entered into a draw to win a pair of tickets to attend, giving you the chance to rub shoulders with Hong Kong’s movers and shakers.

So what are you waiting for, don’t miss out on the opportunity to give your favourites the recognition they deserve! But hurry, we’ll be closing voting on Friday, 3 May.

If you are a business owner yourself, make sure you encourage your fans to vote for you by downloading our social media graphics here. Or if you’d like some posters and flyers for your store, restaurant or bar, email us at [email protected]. Every winner will be added to Sassy’s Hong Kong Directory as a featured listing for one calendar year, and will be invited to the celebratory party in June.
