Close your eyes and imagine your perfect boutique hotel: it could be in a leafy Paris courtyard, where only in-the-know locals go; or a chic villa in Jamaica, where you’re treated like family the moment you arrive (and taking in the stunning Montego Bay Jamaica beaches). Maybe it’s an elegant riad nestled among the souks of Marrakech, where each day begins with a personalized tea ceremony while you savor breakfast by the pool.

Regardless of where your wanderlust takes you, we can all agree that there is something magical about boutique hotels. It’s at these intimate and authentic hideaways that everyone knows your name, your preferred cocktail and how you like to spend your vacation.

These special boutique experiences are what Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) is all about. A collection of more than 500 hotels in some 90 countries, SLH properties have gained worldwide recognition for their style, authenticity and je ne sais quoi – providing travel experiences that are always special, and always bespoke.

A few of Fora’s favorite SLH properties:

Infante Sagres, Porto

In Porto, stay at Infante Sagres, a boutique hotel that’s just as elegant as it is authentically Portuguese. Infante Sagres has a 70-year history and prides itself on being the stay of choice for visiting celebrities over the decades, and since its opening, the has been meticulously restored to its former glory. The hotel strikes a lovely balance of refined and traditional, with classic period details and modern amenities (including a plunge pool). The rooms are uniquely designed, with artwork serving as wall backdrops – each telling a story that guests can read about during their stay. The hotel’s location, too, can’t be beat: Infante Sagres is located in the city center, within walking distance to cultural landmarks and renowned Port wine cellars.

Yemaya Reefs, Nicaragua

For the adventurers who want to go off-the-beaten-path, head to Yemaya Reefs. This dreamy escape is located on Little Corn Island, Nicaragua, which is only about three kilometers (!). It's a blissfully secluded space, perfect for a nourishing reset. Indulge in Afro-Caribbean cuisine, soak up the sun in your private plunge pool, dine by the ocean, embark on a sunset's a little slice of heaven. And after spending a few nights here, you won't want to leave.

The Carlin Boutique Hotel, Queenstown

The Carlin opened in April 2022 and quickly established itself as the city’s most luxurious address. The boutique hotel is the passion project of Kevin Carlin (hence the name), an accomplished property developer and musician, who saw the need for a true luxury hotel in Queenstown that could play host to musicians and high-profile guests. As such, the Carlin is all about privacy and intimate spaces, boasting warm & sophisticated rooms with breathtaking views. You might even spot Kevin performing at the fine dining restaurant, Oro.
