Though all the Club’s properties are one-of-a-kind some threads run through them, connecting proudly different hotels in shared ideals. Hotels making the cut possess these five characteristics that form the pillars of the brand:
Sharing wholeheartedly – A state of mind where the joy of living in a place spills over into a desire to connect and share that wonderful something with a guest.
Connection to the region – Through a passion for celebrating the local culture, Boutique Hotel Club-selected properties give guests the true wonder of travel: exploration of lands unknown. This can be through experiences, cuisine or simply through people firmly rooted in the country and region. The hotels find and keep staff with their finger on the pulse of the region’s cultural heart.
Emotional impact – True hospitality goes beyond delivering fastidious service and material luxury. From the creators to the day-to-day staff, extraordinary hotels possess the emotional intelligence to heighten the internal experience of their guests.
Unique sense of place – Each property should possess a creative design flair that afford it a unique place in the memory of each traveller who walks through its doors.
Alchemy – The real magic comes in the balance between the good ingredients chosen. In the finest hotels design, location, personalities, history and character come together in harmony to achieve an overarching immersive experience.
