Small Luxury Hotels of the World™ (SLH) has responded to the demands of the luxury hotel sector with the launch of Private Residences by SLH, a collection that provides the ‘best of both worlds’ – the personal service of a small hotel with the privacy of an exclusive-use villa, chalet, estate or yacht. Each has been handpicked, with 10 rooms or less and five-star facilities.
In an annual SLH survey completed by over 13,000 SLH Club members worldwide, ‘privacy’ and ‘intimacy’ was identified by over a quarter as the most important factors when booking a luxury holiday. Over the past few years, SLH has seen clear indication that luxury is trending towards exclusivity and privacy, and this development sees they are striving to meet the needs of their market.
There are a number of SLH hotels that already provide private residences listed on the site including:
MUSE Pangkor Laut Estates, part of Pangkor Laut Resort in Malaysia, features eight private sanctuaries. Each estate is designed to be completely self-contained, from the facilities of each property to the team of two butlers and a dedicated chef.
Foxhill Manor in the Cotswolds set within the 162-hectare Farncombe Estate. The property is perfect for weddings, meetings, private parties or any special occasion, offering eight bedrooms and suites, as well as its own ballroom suitable for up to 80 guests.
