Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ (SLH) is the most desirable community of independently minded travellers and independently spirited hotels in the world. We’ve personally visited, verified and vetted every single one of our 520 hotels in more than 90 countries – each one is anti-chain and anti-same.

Our Purpose to match the world's independent travellers with the most individual, intimate and intense hotel experiences.

Our Mission is to make the SLH community so influential and impactful, that we never lose a member.

Our Vision is a future where people experience the world with intention, experience its intensity and protect its integrity.

Our values

Champion independence. We embrace the distinctive, celebrate the unconventional and champion the one-of-a-kind. Seeking out hotels and experiences that have individual character and creativity.

Make it personal. We enable bespoke experiences that place our travellers at the heart of an environment. Every interaction is personal an authentic, forging intimate connections with a place and its people.

Aim for astonishing. We aim to astonish by connecting our travellers to inspirational places, emotive experiences and passionate people. We want them to see, smell, hear and feel with real intensity.

Be valuable. We are committed to creating a valuable community with a powerful collective influence. We promote cultural and environmental sensitivity, encouraging travellers to explore the world with intention.

Our ethos. Conscious travel has always been at the heart of the SLH brand and our vision is to create a future where people explore the world with intention and protect its integrity. By their very nature, our member hotels are deeply rooted in their locality and many have long been key supporters of their local community and environment. We have launched new standards for conscious travel which will formalise our commitment as a business to sustainability. Showcasing hotels initiatives and activities to inspire others, whilst providing guidelines for those hotels looking to take positive action and expand their sustainability programmes.

Our history

In 1984, the owner of the legendary nightclub Studio 54 coined the phrase 'Boutique Hotel'. By 1990, SLH turned that phrase into a phenomenon. Over the last three decades we’ve taken things global and we have created the most desirable and valuable community across 90 countries. Having gone to every major capital, taken the path less travelled and journeyed to the edge of the map to seek out and select the distinctive, the diverse and the downright delightful.
