2022 AHA|SA Hotel Industry Awards for Excellence

The AHA|SA Awards for Excellence are recognised as the most prestigious awards in the hospitality industry, honouring the achievement of excellence in a wide range of categories. This on-going commitment to excellence ensures our state’s hotels are some of the best in Australia.

South Australian hotels provide patrons with a great range of food and beverage, entertainment, quality accommodation and excellent service. They are also the perfect place to socialise, be entertained, relax and enjoy living. There is no doubt that South Australian hoteliers and their staff should be proud of the services and facilities they offer.

The annual AHA|SA Awards for Excellence provides a prime opportunity to showcase your venues and be proud of your achievements. For winners, it also brings marketing, advertising and endorsement opportunities that are invaluable to your hotel.

Winners will be announced at the annual gala dinner being held at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre on Tuesday 18 October 2022. The AHA|SA Awards for Excellence is the highlight of the South Australian hotel calendar, bringing together hotel industry members and associates from all corners of the state to celebrate our vibrant industry and recognise those hotels that have achieved excellence.

Those successful in specific categories will then have the opportunity to compete as a finalist in the AHA National Hotel Awards.
