Boutique Hotels add 12 properties

Twelve more authentic boutique hotels have qualified and been accepted to join Boutique Hotels & Resorts International.
Boutique’s new locations are international business capitals and exciting summer vacation destinations that include Western and Eastern Europe, Central America, Asia and South Africa.  Boutique’s twelve new locations arrive at a time when travelers are seeking more assurance of a bona fide boutique hotel for their travelers in the world’s most appealing destinations.

“With the increase of the boutique movement over the past five years, it is no surprise that the major international chains are investing heavily in the Boutique market segment”, said Martin Buehler, CEO of Boutique. “Accordingly, there is distortion and dilution of what it means to enjoy a true boutique experience.  By exercising a collective effort through Boutique Hotels & Resorts International®, authentic boutique hotels are brought to the forefront for travelers seeking a guaranteed boutique lodging experience. This also allows member boutique hotels to compete against the overwhelming industry consolidation without losing the individual flair of their property.”

Boutique introduces four and five star high-style, unique, and exclusive new member boutique hotels which include:  Le Ferme d’Augustin, St. Tropez; Hotel Bocas Del Toro, Panama; Boutique Palace Hotel, Baku; Angkor Howard Hotel, Siem Reap; Tai Ming Hotel, Phnom Penh; Boutique Hotel Sathorn, Bangkok; Bel Air Panwan, Phuket and Ka Ingo, Rivera on Vaal, Banhoek Vineyard, Zorgvliet Suites, and Le Pommier in South Africa. Boutique now offers a guaranteed boutique experience in 20 of the most traveled countries throughout the world.
