Holidays are the moments in our lives where have a chance to relax, focus on ourselves, loved ones and make memories. It is with this in mind that we understandably look for accommodation which will further these moments. Whether you are looking for a hotel with excellent facilities, dining, spa or excursions, it is most important that you find the hotel to cater for your every need.
With this philosophy in mind the travel industry has seen a rise in the number of boutique hotels. These fabulous properties are often far smaller than you average resort hotel, consisting of around one hundred rooms of less and have seen well-known brands such as, Marriott International too jump on board.
Why choose a boutique hotel?
These chic hotels offer something very different to the larger properties, typically in terms of their styling. The discerning traveller may notice that many of the larger hotel chains, as magnificent as they are, often follow a similar style to their sister hotels. Boutique hotels however are all unique, each one offering something different for its guests. Many are lavish but still offer their own personal touch making you feel immediately comfortable and content in your surroundings.

With thought and creativity in every aspect of the property, these hotels are designed to form a resounding part of your holiday experience. The rooms aim to be luxurious and a place you would want to spend time. The same thought isn’t just put into the walls and furnishings, but the service too is unparalleled. With fewer guests and more intimate surroundings you will be at the focus of the staff’s attention.
Despite their size boutique hotels, depending on their location, will have many of the key amenities of a larger hotel such as a swimming pool, spa, fitness room, bar and restaurants. Perhaps the one deciding difference between those choosing between a boutique hotel and a larger property is location.

Nonetheless, if you are looking for a tranquil relaxed environment, then boutique hotels are perfect for a sleepy weekend or seven night stay to unwind and focus on your inner-being.
