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. 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.

Furthering this love affair with SLH boutique hotels, I'm proud to announce that my host agency Fora has joined SLH’s exclusive Preferred Agency Program, withIN. This program is reserved for the upper echelon of travel advisors and agencies. Thanks to Fora's membership to withIN, you'll automatically unlock top-of-the-line perks and benefits for SLH hotels when you book with me.

In other words, book with me and you’ll be the VIP of the VIP. Read on for a few of my favorite SLH properties around the world, and what perks you’ll always get when you with me.
