Small Luxury Hotels of the World Adds Five Properties to Portfolio

Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has added the following five new properties - in Thailand, Italy, Norway, Switzerland and St. Vincent & The Grenadines - to its impressive portfolio of luxury boutique hotels around the world.

 Crans Ambassador, Crans-Montana, Switzerland

At Crans Ambassador, the first thing to notice are the views – snow-capped in winter and sun-drenched in summer. Once you’ve torn your gaze away from the scenery, you’ll find there’s just as much to delight indoors. Plenty of natural wood and warm fabrics offer an understated, modern take on chalet style featuring large windows and private terraces overlooking the forest or the valley. In the Deluxe Suite, you can even enjoy this from the outdoor hot tub. To get a closer look, stop off at the hotel snow-sports shop, then make for the nearby ski lift. Or when the snow has melted, go in search of adventure, with everything from rock climbing and trail-running to a leisurely round of golf nearby. End your day at La Table Restaurant, where rustic Alpine dishes are served up with an ample choice of wine. The hotel spa features a gym with personal trainers on-hand to help achieve your goals, and a Performance Lab to pick up tips on improving your golf form. There’s also a heated indoor pool overlooking the valley and a number of private spa treatment rooms.

Cape Fahn Hotel, Koh Samui, Thailand

Cape Fahn Hotel is set on a private island, separated from Koh Samui by a small, walkable shallow channel caressed by the tropical sun. Across the bay, people gather on popular Choeng Mon Beach, but at Cape Fahn you have the sheltered shores almost to yourself. Influenced by traditional Thai architecture, each villa has a large plunge pool complete with private sun deck and decorated with plenty of natural wood complimented by a sea-inspired colour palette. Spend the day relaxing at your villa, sampling local and international dishes from the room service menu or hop on a boat or paddleboard and go exploring. Then enjoy an evening of fine dining at the Cape Fahn Hotel restaurant, followed by a drink or two under a canopy of stars.

Opus XVI, Bergen, Norway

Crafted by descendants of Bergan composer Edvard Grieg and named after his famed concerto, Opus XVI offers guests a modern feel immersed in the city’s rich musical heritage. Every element of this luxury city centre hotel plays a part in telling Grieg’s story, with original features including marble columns and polished granite walls alongside Scandi-chic design. Individually styled rooms pair block colour palettes of natural tones with subtle details such as gold-accented furniture, strokably-soft upholstery or statement lighting. Whether you choose a Classic room or the Peer Gynt suite, named for Grieg’s masterpiece, each space is as comfortable as it is contemporary. With its location on Vågsallmenningen plaza, Opus XVI puts you steps from some of Bergen’s best sights. Take in the views from Mount Floyen and the KODE art galleries or learn more about Edvard Grieg at the Opus XVI library exhibition.

The Liming Bequia, St. Vincent & The Grenadines

Doing nothing is an art form in Bequia (Bek-way) and is the philosophy at The Liming. Channel pure escapism in one of the nine spacious, stylish villas including one five-bedroom mansion house, lounging beside your private infinity pool or the refreshingly peaceful beach. Those with a thirst for adventure could board a hand-built schooner for a day trip to Mustique, or head into Port Elizabeth, with its colourful wooden houses and bustling produce markets. Then as the sun sets, return to your contemporary villa to watch the sky fill up with stars.

Villa Neri Resort & Spa, Linguaglossa, Italy

Hidden among the olive groves and fragrant pine trees of Etna Regional Park is Villa Neri. This boutique spa resort takes elements of traditional Sicilian living and turns them into something fresh and contemporary. White walls and clean lines turn the spotlight onto individual details, from classic tiling to wooden flooring. Many suites have views of Etna, with extra luxuries such as in-room hot tubs, wine cabinets and fireplaces. By day, relax by the pool, or devote your time to Petra Spa. Massages and beauty therapies draw on plant essences and natural ingredients from the surrounding landscape, complemented by a sauna, Turkish bath, plunge pools and relaxation area. Venture out to explore Linguaglossa village, or head to the beach at Taormina. Then return to Villa Neri and watch the stars come out from the privacy of your personal terrace.
