TemptingPlaces’s team travels throughout the five continents devoting all of its energy to choosing only the finest boutique hotels that meet our strict selection criteria. We visit every hotel in the collection so that we evaluate the customer’s experience in order to garantee every guest a life enriching exprience. Each boutique hotel consists of no more than 100 rooms, providing its guests with a distinctive style and atmosphere, and is selected for itsUnique Experience as a key criterion. Common features are, of course, the delivery of a high quality service, personality, attention to details, and refined cuisine. There will be something for each and every guest, no matter what their demands or expectations are, be it a dalliance with local culture by sleeping under canvas, swimming amidst the skyline of buildings, matching the colour of the room with your mood, communing with nature by enjoying the thrill of releasing baby turtles into the sea, or participating in the delights of local cuisine.
TemptingPlaces is an independent collection that makes sure its member hotels pass stringent requirements to guarantee the quality and exclusivity of the collection. 1/Character and personnality We believe that boutique hotels have their own personality because they are thought to give guest emotions. We are looking for the spirit of the owner behind any specific service or design. We are seduced by passionate hoteliers who are willing to share their vision about reinventing hotels and customers’ experiences. 2/ Experience & atmospheric emotion Boutique hotels are disruptive with standard and codes of classic hotels. We are looking for individual boutique hotels that offer an “out of the ordinary experience” and a special architecture and design. 3/ Personalised services One of boutique hotels’ value-added offerings is the feeling of exclusivity and being part of a vibrant scene. We also appreciate the value brought by the services proposed on a complementary basis (wifi, minibar, breakfasts, honesty bar. More than a room, we look for the home away home feelling. No standardisation. 4/The size Boutiques hotels are by definition small and intimate ones, that is the reason why none hotel in the collection is more than 100 rooms. 5/Local flair & great location The sense of place is key in our philosophy and values. Whether boutique hotels are located in trendy neighborhoods of sophisticated urban destinations or in immersive and exceptional resort destinations, we attach also a great importance to their involvement in their local, social and cultural environment.
