“Boutique hotels” are small and personal hotels with an attractive atmosphere. They tend to boast stylish design and gourmet chefs.
Often times you will get to know the owners or hotel managers and talk to them about local peculiarities and their individual interpretation of a place.
Boutique hotels are our preferred way of staying abroad. As a nice coincidence, they are mostly situated in luxurious destinations and sometimes even close to spectacular golf courses…
Check out our list of personally recommended hotels here:
Singapore has got a new landmark: The Marina Bay hotel stands out spectacularly at the Esplanade.
Mandy & Paul Brown run a comfortable lodge with great views of Emu Bay on Kangaroo Island. Their cooking is excellent and the 4WD tours very comfortable!
Boutique style living at its best! Meringa Springs offers intimate accomodation in a luxurious setup. High ceilings, fire-places, rich timber finishes, stylish décor and friendly hosts with a Swiss background add up to an unforgettable stay.
We stayed at Oscar’s, a recommendable boutique hotel by the waterfront.
The Limes hotel is a small and fine boutique hotel situated in Brisbane’s upcoming Fortitude Valley quarter.
The Byron at Byron Resort and Spa is an exceptionally stylish design accomodation embedded in tropical rainforest. Just a short drive outside of Byron Bay it offers a relaxed atmosphere in very generous suites.
The Establishment is a carefully designed boutique hotel with numerous amenities. We liked our hotel room a lot. But also the Establishment bar, the Australian fine dining restaurant Est and the rooftop Asian restaurant Hemmesphere are impressive.
On the hamlet of Sporz, on 1’600 metres above sea level, you will find the highly recommended alpine design and lifestyle boutique hotel.
If you are looking for a romantic getaway in Austria, we can recommend the Geniesser- and Kuschelhotel Gams. The Hotel is located in Bezau at Bregenzerwald, a valley between Lake Constance and the Arlberg. It is the ideal destination for gourmet holidays amidst pure nature.
