to Small Luxury Hotels of the World™

2011 was a milestone year for Small Luxury Hotels of the World™, as the group celebrated its 20th anniversary. Now, as we move into our third decade, we are proud to offer even greater choice than before. By choice we mean a choice of hotels, now up to 520 in more than 70 countries, including 50 properties that have joined the group since last January. We mean a choice of style and type of accommodation, from sleek city hotels to traditional country house hideaways, idyllic island spa retreats and mountaintop ski resorts. And we mean a choice of ways to book, whether through your favourite travel agent, Facebook, SLH.com, on your desktop, iPad, or Smartphone, or our free iPhone app – here you have over 10,000 pages, 12,000 images in 7 languages. There’s more to it than that, of course. Because the hotels in our group are small, they don’t impact excessively on the environment. Because they’re independently owned, they have personality and substance – and owners who are on hand to ensure you receive a heartfelt welcome and authentic, personalised service. And because the owners and their staff have insider knowledge of the area, they can help you make the most of the local culture and the unique experiences it offers. I personally hope that you enjoy choosing your hotel, either for business or pleasure. After all, luxury is the freedom to choose. It’s all there in the name. Small Luxury Hotels of the World™. Small hotels. Big experiences. Paul Kerr CEO for Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ and Joint Managing Director of Hill, Goodridge & Associates Ltd.

FLORIDA: Palm Beach to Key West FLORIDA is a no-brainer for a decadent winter sun holiday. Top up your tan beside the pool at The Chesterfield Hotel in Palm Beach, then don flip flops and shades and head south to The Pillars Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, to sit in your planter’s chair, looking over the Intracoastal Waterway. From there, there’s the option of a detour into the Everglades, before continuing on to Miami, where you can shop and party from One Bal Harbour Resort & Spa, an 18-storey glass tower overlooking the Atlantic, or The Betsy, a historic property on Ocean Drive with a rooftop sunbathing terrace and fantastic steakhouse. Then it’s a four-hour drive to the Santa Maria Suites Resort on Key West, to dive, dolphin-watch, and nibble on sushi in the Japanese restaurant.

Château Eza, Côte d’Azur, France

COTE D’AZUR: Nice to Provence THE COTE D’AZUR is about old-school glamour (epitomised by Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief), the sparkling Mediterranean, and swimming pools cut into the rocks. After soaking up the Bay of Angels views at Hotel La Pérouse in Nice, tuck in your silk scarf and drive to Château Eza, 400 metres above the sea in Eze outside Monte Carlo, and savour the Michelin-starred cuisine. Then head back along the Grande Corniche, stopping off at Hôtel Belles Rives in Juan les Pins and on to the gorgeous Villa Marie, clinging to the Ramatuelle hillside above St Tropez. Then end your trip at Le Pigonnet, an 18th century retreat minutes from Aix-en-Provence.

THE ALPS: Switzerland, Germany and Austria

THE ALPS are about the thrill of the chase (think James Bond). This Alpine adventure begins at the Schwarzer Adler Estate Hotel in the Kaiserstuhl region of Germany, where you can choose from 2,400 wine varieties and a menu of French and local Michelin-starred cuisine. From there, drive two hours via Basel to the Art Deco Hotel Montana on Lake Lucerne, to stay in a new rooftop Penthouse spa suite, listen to live jazz and join a whisky tasting. Then it’s a glorious six-hour mountain drive, via Innsbruck, Kufstein, Rosenheim and Salzburg, to Im Weissen Rössl on Lake Wolfgang, where you can boat and swim before heading home.

How to... Recreate hotel style at home with tips from top professionals

Chateau Mcely, Czech Republic Château des Vigiers Golf & Country Club, France

1. Mix a perfect mojito by Rupert Lovibond, Head Barman, The Arch London, England “Always use very fresh mint and measure your ingredients. If no spirit measure is to hand, a teaspoon is 5ml and a tablespoon 15ml. Squeeze in 25ml of lime juice and 20ml of sugar syrup (no muddling required). Add ice along with 50ml of white or gold rum and stir well. Top with soda water and garnish with a beautiful mint leaf.” 2. Create your own home spa by Lucie Mannová, Spa Manager, Chateau Mcely, Czech Republic “At Chateau Mcely, we have developed a range of organic products to showcase traditional Bohemian herbal remedies, and Mcely Bouquet elixirs can be added to the bath. Alternatively, create a honey bath by dissolving one cup of honey, three spoons of virgin olive oil, two litres of unskimmed milk and one litre of buttermilk into warm,

running bath water. Add candles and an aroma burner, then relax in the bath for at least 20 minutes. It will melt away stress and leave your skin beautifully soft.” 3. Serve wine like a sommelier by Nathalie Boulin, Maître d’Hôtel-Sommelière, Château des Vigiers Golf & Country Club “Open red wines at least one hour before tasting and serve rich, full-bodied reds at room temperature (18°C to 20°C), lighter reds at 12°C to 14°C. If they’re too cold, red wines tend to be acidic and metallic; too warm and they can be too alcoholic and exacerbate tannins. Use a glass with a wide bowl so as much air can mix with the wine as possible. A dry white should be served in a glass with a mediumdiameter bowl to concentrate its aroma. The ideal temperature is 8°C to 12°C – if a dry white is too cold, it will be difficult to appreciate its different aromas.”

4. Give your bedroom a Maldivian makeover by Mohamed Faruhaadh, Housekeeper, Baros Maldives “Choose soothing colours, warm tones, or earthy hues to ground you, then add colourful accents with flowers and cushions. Check lighting is soft – and complement with candles. Create a beautiful bed – using the right pillows for you, a mattress topper, and high-quality fabric softener. Keep a small collection of essential oils at home – starting with lavender – so you have one for every mood. And before going to sleep, place a glass of water beside your bed, and wind down with relaxing music and a cup of mint tea.”

Travel Agents use the LX code for LuXury

5. Make the ultimate Italian pesto by Stefano Marzetti, Executive Chef, Mirabelle Restaurant, Hotel Splendide Royal, Rome, Italy “Using a wooden pestle and a marble mortar, crush two peeled cloves of garlic into a paste, then add 100g of garden-fresh basil and a few grains of sea salt. Continue crushing until the paste is bright green, then add – a little by little – 15g of pine nuts, 70g of grated Parmesan cheese and 30g of Pecorino cheese. Finally, blend in 100ml of extra virgin olive oil. All you then need to do is cook 350g of spaghetti in plenty of water and a little salt, drain the pasta and add the pesto.”

MESSAGE IN A

Discover a country through its vineyards As well as being enjoyable, wine tastings can be a wonderful way of getting to know a region’s landscapes, culture and history.

Rioja, Spain Take the Spanish wine region of Rioja, whose fascinating history has been closely linked to that of Bordeaux. Lying on the River Ebro, the region is known for its avant-garde architecture and old town centres, and the Hotel Viura – a structure of superimposed cubes in a traditional village – is in keeping. The hotel has bicycles for exploring the Rioja Alavesa, where the region’s highest-quality grapes are produced, a restaurant serving creative Basque cuisine, and a rooftop terrace with gorgeous mountain views. The celebrated Marqués de Riscal winery is only 10 minutes away.

Alsace, France Heading east to France’s border with Germany, Alsace combines fine wines with enchanting villages of halftimbered houses set between the Vosges mountains and the Rhine, and it’s here you’ll find the classically elegant Château d’Isenbourg. Hotel Viura, Rioja, Spain

“Try the beautifully crisp local Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc or Riesling wines, perfect with a light lunch on our terrace overlooking the Clos d’Isenbourg vineyards.” Bernard Nast, Head Wine Steward, Château d’Isenbourg.

Heidelberg, Germany

Heidelberg, Germany Germany itself has wonderful Rieslings and Pinot Noirs, as well as superior dessert wines. Try them in the wine cellar of the Hotel Die Hirschgasse in Heidelberg, a 15th century inn on the River Neckar with its own private vineyard. Take a tour, then try the regional dishes – such as pike-perch – in a ye olde student-duelling bar that once played host to Mark Twain.

Barossa Valley, Australia

Santorini, Greece Greece is the oldest wine-producing region in Europe and the vineyards on the volcanic island of Santorini – a place of black-sand beaches, whitewashed stone and deep-blue sea views – are among the country’s best and most dramatic. Try the dry citrusy and velvety ‘Vinsanto’ dessert wines on a visit from the stunning Sun Rocks overlooking the Caldera.

Chic retreats in Bangkok, Phuket and Krabi After your flight to Bangkok, you’ll be wanting a swim, a massage and a good night’s sleep before venturing out to the city’s temples and boutiques. The Hansar Bangkok is the place to head to – an eighth-floor infinity pool, aromatherapy treatments at its Luxsa spa, understated contemporary rooms with Thai silk-covered walls – as well as French Provençal cuisine and a gym overlooking the Royal Bangkok Sports Club. From Bangkok, fly to Phuket, then escape the crowds at The Racha, a 35-minute speedboat ride away on a paradise island. Wind down on the private terrace of your Zen-like villa, book an outdoor massage in the outstanding holistic spa, dine by the pool at The Fire Grill, and dive over coral reefs. Move on to the Nakamanda Resort & Spa in Krabi, where the villas are more traditional in style and the Andaman seascapes just as breathtaking. Dive below the limestone cliffs, kayak through mangroves, and hike in the jungle, then return for a Royal Thai massage and seafood fusion food.

Naladhu Maldives Naladhu Maldives Elephants in Sri Lanka

DROPS IN THE OCEAN Itinerary: Romantic Hideaways in the Maldives and Sri Lanka Linking together more than 1,000 islands in a series of ring-like coral atolls, the Maldives is the ultimate luxury destination, combining extraordinary natural beauty with ever-increasing levels of sophistication. Take Niyama, a brand-new resort on two islands in the southwestern Dhaalu Atoll, where guests can take a boat to an offshore lounge bar and underwater nightclub, or cook with ‘tribal chefs’ at a campsite-style restaurant. Or the more understated Naladhu Maldives, on palm-covered Veligandu Huraa in South Malé Atoll, where each cabana-style house has its own plunge pool and butler service, and activities range from wine-tasting and cooking classes to diving and one-on-one yoga. Naladhu also offers a rare insight into the Maldivian culture, through day trips to the markets of the capital, Malé, and evenings with a local storyteller. Sri Lanka, just one-and-a-half-hour’s flight from Malé, complements a visit to the Maldives beautifully.

Re-emerging after 25 years of civil war, this teardrop-shaped island off the southwest coast of India has untold cultural riches – from Buddhist statues and cinnamon plantations to bejewelled elephants. From the eco haven that is Jetwing Vil Uyana, you can visit the world-famous Sigiriya Rock Fortress, built by King Kashyapa in the 5th century BC, and witness the gathering of hundreds of elephants at Minneriya National Park, as well as staying in a thatched dwelling on a lake, and enjoying yoga, spa treatments and delicious Sri Lankan cuisine. Days 1 to 3 After landing in Malé International Airport, take a 40-minute seaplane flight to Niyama and party at the world’s first underwater nightclub Days 4 to 6 Transfer to Naladhu (by seaplane to Malé, then half an hour on a speedboat) and wind down with desert-island picnics and local tales of pirates and princes Days 7 to 10 Return to Malé by speedboat, fly on to Colombo International Airport in Sri Lanka, and pick up your transfer to Jetwing Vil Uyana, a six-hour, scenic drive north into Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle

Hotel Bergs, Riga, Latvia Hotel Telegraaf, Tallinn, Estonia

Pädaste Manor, Muhu Island, Estonia

BALTIC GEMS Itinerary: Estonia and Latvia For a holiday off the beaten track, the Baltic States offer a rewarding mix of novelty and sophistication With its medieval walls and towers, Russian Orthodox and Lutheran Cathedrals, and enticing views over the Gulf of Finland, the Estonian capital of Tallinn is a great place to wander at whim. Make the Hotel Telegraaf your base - a former telegraph exchange next to the Town Hall Square - and mix sightseeing with award-winning Russian cuisine and Elemis spa treatments. After two or three nights, book a taxi and ferry to Pädaste Manor on Muhu Island, an aristocratic seat that has re-emerged from the vagaries of time (it was both a Soviet and Nazi base during the war) as an enchanting one-off. As well as rustic-chic rooms, it offers exceptional Nordic Islands’ cuisine by young Estonian chef Peeter Pihel, and a wood-fired hot tub on the Baltic Sea. After exploring the island by horse-drawn carriage, take a ferry and drive to the Latvian capital of Riga and Hotel Bergs, part of a pedestrian oasis that hosts a farmers’ market twice a month. Within walking distance of the opera, the sleek boutique retreat combines 19th century architecture with contemporary design, Latvian cuisine and treatments from the ‘Massage Cabinet’.

Tylney Hall, Hampshire

ENGLISH ROSES Itinerary: London and Southern England

Historic beauties outside London

After two nights’ R&R, you’ll be ready to play the English gent at Stapleford Park in Leicestershire, a grand Georgian manor house in 500 glorious acres designed by Capability Brown. Traditional sporting pursuits such as shooting, archery and falconry are offered alongside golf on a championship course, with Clarins spa treatments to aid recovery afterwards. After checking out, The Arden Hotel with its new Waterside Brasserie is the ideal place to stop en route for lunch and a wander around historic Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon. There’s more Georgian elegance – albeit on a more modest scale – at the 30-room Cotswold House Hotel and Spa in the honey-hued village of Chipping Campden. The spa and contemporary-styled cottages and suites (with outdoor hot tubs) are set in two acres of cottage gardens; for added wow factor, try hot air ballooning. Further south in Hampshire, Victorian-era Tylney Hall has Orangery rooms overlooking a water garden and a glorious outdoor swimming pool in a walled garden. The hotel is set in six acres at the end of a long driveway. If this is all beginning to sound very Jane Austen, her house is nearby, in Chawton. After eight days of English heritage, a modern city hotel just wouldn’t cut it. Happily, there is also the family-owned Capital Hotel, which combines 50 antique-filled rooms with a highly regarded French restaurant and a discreet Knightsbridge location near the designer shops of Sloane Street. If you’re still hankering for green space, Hyde Park is within walking distance.
