Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ (SLH) brand is an unrivalled portfolio of some of the world’s finest small luxury independent hotels. Comprising over 520 hotels in more than 70 countries, the diversity of the individual hotels, and the experiences that they offer, is exceptional. From cutting-edge design hotels to palatial 17th century mansions, city centre sanctuaries to remote private islands, historic country houses to idyllic resorts - the breadth and depth of the brand is far reaching.
While a hotel undoubtedly enjoys the benefits of being part of a global brand, SLH places enormous emphasis on celebrating the individuality of each hotel. This remains one of our core values and is central to the continued success of the brand. We strongly believe that the strength and credibility of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ brand is dependent on the quality of its individual hotels. Strict controls are applied to ensure that only the very best hotels with the highest standards are accepted into the brand, thus ensuring that the quality of the experience that guests receive is consistent across all SLH properties. To ensure that these exceptional standards of excellence are maintained, SLH has a carefully monitored ‘mystery guest’ programme which relies on valuable reviews from inspectors who importantly are also consumers.
Over the last 20 years SLH has been transformed from a Club of hotels to a Club of customers – customers who are loyal to the brand.
The luxury hotel market has been fairly resilient to uncertain times that we all have experienced over the years. We all need to be prepared as these times continue, markets shift and competition stiffens.
We at SLH endeavour to prepare our hotels to navigate through the shifting markets and respond to the ever changing patterns of customer behaviour. After all, SLH is the champion of the “Small Luxury Independent Hotelier” for the “Independently Minded” customer.
We encourage only the very best to apply to join the brand of Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ . As soon as you join, you will benefit not only from a wealth of experience, but also from our partnerships with other luxury brands and established names. By being part of Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ your visibility and profile will be enhanced. Your revenue will be maximised and your independence preserved.
