Huge expansion for Small Luxury Hotels

Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) will add 59 new member hotels to its growing portfolio in 2006, representing the largest expansion since the brand was first established in 1991. The total collection now stands at 359 hotels in 59 countries, and for the first time includes a presence in South Korea, Laos, St Lucia, Russia and Estonia. With the latest additions SLH now offers over 19,000 rooms and suites in nearly 30 capital cities and on 40 islands. The collection also includes more than 90 castles and country houses, as well as around 30 game lodges and properties devoted to responsible tourism practices. Over 100 SLH hotels have dedicated spas or health centres and more than 40 feature their own golf course or are adjacent to one. Despite the growth in hotel membership, the average number of rooms at an SLH property remains consistent at 55 rooms, allowing the individual hotels to deliver the expected level of privacy and personal service that is synonymous with the brand. “It is not just about adding more hotels to our portfolio,” said Small Luxury Hotels of the World joint managing director Paul Kerr. “We have made a concerted effort to seek out the very best and most exclusive properties in emerging and exciting luxury destinations in order to meet the needs of our demanding clientele.”
