National Geographic Traveller has announced the winners of its inaugural Big Sleep Awards, and Babylonstoren took home top honours in the Gourmet Getaway Award. Babylonstoren was signaled out as the cream of the accommodation crop in their category which included accommodation establishments from around the world.

The judging panel comprised National Geographic Traveller readers as well as a handful of travel media and experts. 

The Gourmet Getaway category is described as judging the establishment which has the finest kitchen and culinary concept, as well as the most innovative chef and the freshest ingredients. Babylonstoren checked all these boxes and was described by the panel as ‘utter paradise for a foodie’. The hotel’s visually stunning property, which is surrounded by eight acres of lush gardens stood out for the panel as one of the winning factors.
