5 Must-Visit Local Festivals in Cyprus During the Summer

If you have been thinking about visiting Cyprus, then you should really consider going there during the summer. Why? Aside from the warm weather and flowers in bloom, it’s also the festival season that you don’t want to miss out on! Although there are festivals throughout the year, the most exciting ones take place in the summer. Here are some local festivals that you can experience in Cyprus:

The Kataklysmos Festival / The Flood Festival (May)

Kataklysmos means flood as a reference to the story of Noah’s flood in the Bible. There are many water-based activities that you can enjoy at the festival, including water fights! Lanarca Kataklysmos Festival takes place in seaside towns during the long weekend at the start of summer. Although this festival is the most popular festivals among locals, tourists can also immerse themselves in the local culture by attending as well. They can experience the Cypriot tradition through local dances, folklore music, and authentic Cypriot craftwork.


Traditional Arts & Food Festival Korakou (June)

The Traditional Arts & Food Festival takes place in the village of Korakou. This festival holds all the Cypriot best crafts and food. Here, you can learn more about different forms of traditional goods as well as making them yourself! In addition to tasting delicious local snacks, you can watch demonstrations of dough kneading and the process of making Cyprus’s famous halloumi cheese. You will also get to see and taste the products that are made from halloumi such as pies, pastries, pasta dishes, among others.


The Lavender Festival (June)

The Lavender Festival held in Cyherbia Botanical Park & Labyrinth in the village of Avgorou is something that you cannot miss if you happen to visit Cyprus in the summer! There are various activities in the festival including lavender craft and lavender essential oil workshops, meditation walks in the lavender labyrinth, a lavender cooking demonstration, as well as a photo shoot in the lavender gardens. Whether you’re visiting with your significant other or your family, there will surely be something for everyone to enjoy!

 

The Potato Festival (July)

Another festival taking place in Avgorou is the Potato Festival. As the village of Avgorou is famous for its potato production, it’s no wonder that there is a festival dedicated to potato here! Here, you will get to know some Cypriot ways in cooking potatoes, as well as tasting some of the recipes. The best thing is that all the potatoes used are locally grown, which means that the quality of the goods is as authentic as you will get. You can also try some local dishes here, including souvla and kleftiko at a cheap price as well. As a bonus, you may receive some gifts that are creatively made from potatoes to bring home with you!


The Pasteli Festival (September)

The Pasteli Festival may not be held in the summer, but it deserves to be mentioned on this list nonetheless! Held in the village of Anogyra in Limassol, you will get to try the sticky carob and sesame seeds bar known as pasteli at this festival. Pasteli is only made in cooler months, particularly during September and May, as the heat will make the sweet lose its shape. You can discover how pasteli is made while also exploring other local sweets such as koulourouthkia. While you’re there, you can also make a visit to Carob Mill Museum to learn more about carob – one of the essential ingredients of pasteli.

A Month-By-Month Guide to Visiting Cyprus – What to Know

Whether it’s during the warmth of spring or the chill of winter, it’s always a good idea to take a vacation to a certain stunning island located in the Mediterranean Sea: Cyprus.

Planning to go on a trip to the Mediterranean? If so, Cyprus should be on your radar. Here is a month-by-month guide from January to April to help you plan your trip the right way:

January

It can get rather chilly during the month of January, but fortunately, the temperature usually doesn’t drop any lower than ten degrees during the day. The first week of January is considered a good time to visit since there are festive events you can enjoy. During that time of the year, eating together is a number one activity people do with their family and friends. A word of caution: Expect the tourist destinations to be incredibly crowded. After all, it’s a time when most people have a few days off from work.

If you happen to visit during New Year’s Eve, make sure that you don’t miss the celebrations. December 31 is one of the craziest nights of the year. Many clubs and restaurants stay open to ensure that there are champagne bottles to pop and fireworks to set off so that you can enjoy the magic of the season. Why bother going out to the downtown to celebrate this big night? If you are lucky, you will be invited by locals to celebrate at their homes!

They will share with you a traditional Greek cake called ‘vasilopitta’, which is flavored with rich orange brandy and garnished with almonds. After the New Year celebrations, there are plenty of activities for you to enjoy. In addition, six days before New Year, you can join the Epiphany festival at seasides and quays across the island. Don’t miss your chance!

February

The average temperature during this month is anywhere from 6 to 8 degrees. Seeing as it is still incredibly cold, the island is usually less packed than it is during the warmer months. However, it’s a chance to experience the real beauty that only few can see. Plus, you will find that flight and hotel deals are nicer to your wallet as well.

In order to enjoy this season, make your trip to Troodos Ski Resort on Mount Olympus. The resort offers you exciting activities that will make your day. Apart from that, you can enjoy a jog along the coast. The salty seawater will still be warm. So take your time under the sun, grab a surfboard, and soak your feet in the water!

March

March in Cyprus is paradise on earth. Flowers bloom and transform the empty land into a colorful scene. At this time, in honor of the Greek Orthodox Easter, people hold a ten-day event full of parades and fancy-dress parties. Visit Limassol if you can, because this place will allow you to experience local tradition and entertainment. It’s worth visiting for sure!

This month is the perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities in this beautiful country. So go out in warmer days to enjoy walks along the coast, quad bike riding, and the annual Limassol Marathon. In addition, Mark the Cyprus Walking Festival on your calendar. Relax if you have no day off because this two-month annual festival starts in March and continues through May. Book your flight whenever you feel like it!

April

During April, the weather really starts to warm up. Fortunately, it’s still a comfortable temperature. One of the best things about it is that you can go sunbathing without having to worry about getting burnt. The comfortable temperature allows you to explore a lot of activities.

Deep sea diving, in particular, is one of those activities that you can’t miss while you’re in Cyprus. There are amazing diving spots that offer you a magnificent underwater experience. From Green Bay to Zenobia, you will be stunned by the beautiful seafloor, sunken ships, and deep sea creatures. If you’re not a great diver, Cyprus will never disappoint.

There are a lot of water parks opening in April. Why not consider spending a day enjoying water activities at a popular Paphos Water Park or stopping by the annual Cyprus Film Days International Festival in Nicosia? You’re sure to have a wonderful time!

6 Things You Can Do in Nicosia, Cyprus

Nicosia is the capital city of Cyprus. Known for its remarkable landmarks that tell the story of its history, Nicosia is a place of culture. If you’re planning a trip to Nicosia, read on to find out about all of the must-do things that you can’t miss in this fascinating city!

1. Try Café Hopping

One of the greatest charms of Cyprus is its café culture. You will find delectable pastries, traditional cakes, and hot drinks in various coffee shops throughout the city. If you happen to be in the area, we highly recommend trying out a local-favorite café called “Apomero” around an alley near Ermou for some sweets!

2. Explore the Green Line

Nicosia is the only capital in the world that is split in two. The island is divided by the Green Line or Dead Zone along Old Nicosia. There are many checkpoints that you will encounter, but the main one is located on Ledra Street, which is also an entry point where you can cross to the other side. The place is a great way for you to explore the political history on the island.

3. Check Out the OHI Farmer’s Market

The OHI Farmer’s Market is another must-visit place in Nicosia. There, you will find a variety of local products including fresh fruits, vegetables, and nuts. Even though you’re not into cooking or fresh produce, the experience of visiting the local market is rewarding enough. You will get to see the sellers shouting to attract customers and even try some samples of various local products. Note that the market is only on Wednesday and Saturday from 6 am to 4 pm, and the best time to go is early in the morning as the market is the most active then.

4. Visit Museums and Galleries

When you visit Nicosia, there is no way that you could miss all the great museums and galleries on the island. If you want to learn more about Cyprus’ history, check out the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia in the center of the Old Town. The exhibits will provide detailed information that is available in English, Turkish, and Geek. The best part is that admission is free! Cyprus Museum is another museum that is worth visiting. It is the biggest and oldest archaeological in Cyprus, featuring a wide collection of ancient Cypriot artifacts. Another cultural spot that you should visit in Nicosia is the Nicosia Municipal Arts Centre (NiMAC). There, you will find exhibitions from artists all over the world. Don’t worry about not being able to visit if you’re traveling on a budget – admission is free!

5. Go to Pedestrian Streets

The most famous street that you need to visit in Nicosia is the Ledra Steet. You will find several shops, cafés, bars, and restaurants here on this street. Another street that is just across from the Ledra Street is Onasagorou Street, which is another popular shopping street filled with restaurants and bars. If you’re looking for some shopping, Laiki Geitonia is the place to go. The area is filled with all sorts of shops, and you are sure to find some souvenirs to bring back home. You will also get to interact with local shop owners who you can ask for recommendations or any questions that you might have about the city!

6. Try a Cypriot Dish

If you’re visiting a foreign city and you don’t try their local cuisine, what’s the point? When you’re in Nicosia, visit a few mayiria, which are local, authentic eateries serving up homemade food in the traditional way. Some restaurants that you should try are Shiantris and Mathaios that are both located in the Old Town. A traditional dish that is a must-try is a pitta of mixed souvlaki, which consists of meat and vegetables grilled on a skewer.

Defining Luxury Travel in 2019 – Our Guide

Nowadays, there are so many restaurants, hotels, and services advertising themselves as “luxury.” However, how do you know if they are really as luxurious as they claim to be? What is the standard for luxury anyway? The truth is that it all comes down to one’s own definition of luxury. The same is with luxury travel – opinions can vary a great deal among different travellers. This article will delve deeper into the matter.

What Is Luxury Travel to You?

When it comes to luxury travel, there are no guidelines for what exactly is required for a place to be considered as such. How one traveller defines luxury is not going to be the same for others. For some, luxury is when a private butler is available to serve three gourmet meals. For others, luxury is simply a room with a veranda facing the ocean or just an isolated place without any noise disruptions.

Most people make the mistake of associating luxury with expensiveness. However, the truth is that you don’t have to spend all your hard-earned savings just to have a luxury experience. The key is to find the kind of place that will offer you luxury possibilities without costing you a fortune. This doesn’t mean that you should go for something cheap. In fact, you should never settle for anything that offers you a poor experience.

Defining Luxury Travel Today

 Today, luxury travel is all about getting the full experience that you will get from the local people and places that are most authentic. That being said, high-quality accommodation and dining will still be taken into account when defining luxury travel, but they are not the only determining factors. Modern luxury travellers now place importance on immersing themselves in the local culture rather than focusing purely on the quality of their accommodation. The bottom line here is that the overall experience that travellers will get from the destination is more significant than the luxury of dining or staying in a five-star hotel alone.

People define luxury differently. Most travellers nowadays are more concerned with the entire experience of their trip rather than comfort factors. By getting immersed in your destination and participating in local activities, you will experience things that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to in your home country. For example, there are a variety of activities that you can try out during your trip that you can’t do anywhere else. This means that the fact that you get to experience those things are luxury in itself. After all, the point of travelling to a new destination is to gain new perspectives and experience new things.

Takeaway

At the end of the day, it depends on what you want to take away from your travel. If you want to experience everything that your destination has to offer, you can book a tour that is filled with activities you’re interested in. However, if your definition of luxury travel is spending your days in a luxury hotel, then Hypnos Boutique is a great choice! We’re based in the city centre of Nicosia and is rated as one of the best luxury boutique hotels in the area. Book your stay today!

What Sets Boutique Hotels Apart From Traditional Hotels

Everyone prefers different things when it comes to choosing a place of accommodation on a vacation. Perhaps all you need is a simple bed and a bathroom for a one-night stay. On other special occasions, you might prefer the full experience of staying in a five-star hotel filled with incredible amenities such as a complimentary welcome drink, a private balcony, and 24/7 room service.

However, if there’s ever a time when you want to experience something completely different or want to explore new things aside from the comfort of a hotel room, you might want to consider staying at a boutique hotel for a change. Read on to learn more about these unique hotels!

Unique Experience

If you’ve never stayed at a boutique hotel before, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. This unique accommodation option will give you the “wow!”  factor that you can never get from a generic chain hotel. Although boutique hotels are smaller than regular chain hotels, the saying “quality over quantity” has never been truer in this case. The quirky and distinctive design features are what set it apart from traditional hotels.

Some boutique hotels even have a different theme for every room, which means that you have the freedom to choose the one that suits your taste and style the best. Moreover, boutique hotels are scattered everywhere, from big cities to the countryside. Wherever your destination is, you will most likely find at least a few boutique hotels in your designated area.

Exquisite Services

In addition to their beautiful rooms, the services of boutique hotels are impeccable. In fact, boutique hotels are recognized for their devoted and thoughtful staff. You will be warmly greeted by the doorman upon your arrival, making you feel welcome and at home. They will call you by your name, ask if there’s anything they can help you with, and provide you with whatever you need.

Great Attention to Detail

Some boutique hotels even go to greater lengths to find out about their guests beforehand, either through social media or other resources. This way, they will know who you are the moment you step into the hotel. Better yet, you may even find your favorite drink or food awaiting you in your room! Moreover, don’t forget to let the hotel staff know if it’s your special day. Whether it’s your birthday or you and your partner’s anniversary, the hotel staff will make sure that they give you the special treatment. Who knows? They may give you a room upgrade or a free bottle of wine and desserts to make your stay experience even more memorable!

In Conclusion

As you can see, boutique hotels are very different from chain hotels, and they might not be for everyone. In the end, it all comes down to what kind of experience you want to gain from your trip.

The Differences Between Boutique Hotels and Chain Hotels

Boutique hotels are now becoming more popular than ever, especially among adventurous tourists. In fact, its popularity rivals even that of chain hotels. People are starting to choose boutique hotels over chain hotels for many reasons. Some want the chance to try something different while others just want to cut some costs as boutique hotels are known to be cheaper than chain hotels.
Either way, a boutique hotel can be a great alternative to a regular hotel. This article will list down the differences between the two types of hotels so you can decide for yourself which one you prefer.

Number of Rooms

As boutique hotels tend to be smaller than chain hotels, they will most likely have fewer rooms. If you like to have your privacy in a place where people won’t bother you as much, you may prefer a boutique hotel over a large and crowded hotel. That being said, do note that the small number of rooms means that it may be more difficult for you to look for an available room during your trip.

Style of Rooms

When it comes to the design, clear differences between chain hotels and boutique hotels can be seen. Chain hotels usually keep the same style across the rooms while boutique hotels may offer themed design for each of their rooms. For boutique hotels, you have the freedom to choose the room that suits your style the most. If you want to stay in a simplistic and minimalistic room, however, a chain hotel may be your best option. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to experience a different kind of accommodation, then you may want a room at a boutique hotel of your choosing.

The Location

It is quite obvious that chain hotels are easy to find as they are everywhere on the map. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for boutique hotels. While there are some boutique hotels out there that are located right at the center of their respective tourist spots, many others are still hiding in secret alleys, which makes it quite hard to spot without any prior research.

The Use of Furniture

Some, but not all, boutique hotels hold some pieces of furniture that may have existed even before you were born. This can be seen as vintage to some people but rustic to others, depending on personal preference. As for chain hotels, their furniture is usually brand new with simple, minimal designs. In the end, it all comes down to what you prefer.

So, Which One Should You Choose?

Everyone is different, and we all have our own ideas of taste and style. What you prefer may not necessarily be something that another would want. Thus, it all depends on whether you would want to stay at a boutique hotel or at a chain hotel of the place of your destination. The most important thing that you must do before you book your accommodation is to do some research for more information. Even after you’ve made your decision of what type of hotel you want to stay at, you still want to choose among the hotels to find the one that you know you will enjoy.

Small Details That Will Enhance Your Boutique Hotel in Nicosia

Any hotel can look great, but for those who pay great attention to detail, it is much better to have smaller details that tie together the whole aesthetic of the environment. You want your boutique hotel to capture the eye of every onlooker and each person passing by. Want to really make an impact?

There are some small things that you can add to your boutique hotel to make everyone take notice and to please the eyes of those looking for detail. Let’s take a look!

High Quality

A boutique hotel has to pay attention to quality. This is one big thing that is composed of many little things. Every service and resource should be of good quality. This includes your staff, who will be the ones to make or break a customer’s experience. Friendly customer service and high-quality products will show the customers that you care. Keeping everything clean and comforting-looking will be a constant priority but will be worth it for each and every one of your customers to have a great stay.

Looking at Thread Count

Thread count may seem like just a number, but when it comes to quality, it’s something that your customer will feel. Whether or not they know the exact thread count, when they notice the different feeling of that high-quality cloth or fabric, they know how much attention you paid to their rooms. Soft, seamless cotton sheets are an indication of quality and attention to detail. Boutique hotels should bring a new appreciation for high-quality fabrics.

Whether it’s in the form of bathrobes, towels, tablecloths, or anything else, make sure you are paying attention to the quality of all the items you buy for your hotel.

Furnishing with Style

Boutique hotels must understand historical pieces and the art of furniture. The little extra attention to decoration detailing will add a little something special to your hotel. A contemporary painting, a vintage lamp, or even artistic seating can go a long way in a boutique lobby.

Knick Knacks

Collecting smaller pieces will add some personality to your boutique hotel. You want to make sure these little items add to your own personal taste. Adding a little personal touch to your hotel will make it feel like a connection between you and your guests. Small vases, candles, or intricate lampshades are a great way to spice up the room. Little figurines or statues can add a little bit of a vintage feel to the room as well.

Eatery

You want to really make sure your kitchen staff is passionate about what they are making and putting out to your guests. Decoration doesn’t just apply to rooms; you can definitely decorate a plate of food. Even just a small effort to personalize your recipes and make sure your food tastes as good as it looks will be noticeable by the detailed eye – and tongue!

Eating spaghetti with a little garnishing as well as some sprinkled herbs carefully placed on a plate will make for a great picture and an amazing experience. Desserts are the most fun to decorate because there is so much room for creativity. Assorted colourful macarons on a silver platter or small cupcakes articulately decorated will definitely make for an unforgettable dining experience that your guests can enjoy.

Boutique Hotels – What Makes Them So Special

With cool designs and warm, personalized service, boutique hotels are in trend in this modern century.  Whether you’re a business traveler or a family on vacation, these properties are ideal for those who like their stay to be a memorable experience rather than just a bed for the night.

A destination that upholds the local culture

Boutique hotels have carved out their own place in the fast-paced world of business travel. They have become a place to engage with the local culture, a place that celebrates style, and a place to make beautiful memories. A boutique hotel usually has less than 50 rooms. However, there are larger independent properties that also pride themselves on offering a private atmosphere and warm service.

Lifestyle foundations

Influenced by modern culture and lifestyle, boutique hotels gained traction during the mid-1980s. This new type of hotels embraced the ground-breaking concept of “cheap chic,” which meant affordable luxury in a sophisticated and stylish environment. Private hotel owners dominated the boutique hotel scene for a long time before the larger hotel chains followed suit and started to introduce their “lifestyle hotels.”

Individuality is the hallmark

Every boutique hotel is one of a kind with a unique design and flair. Distinctive, chic, and sometimes even quirky, these properties can be anything from charming historical buildings to modern properties influenced by the local art, culture, and history. Everything from the external facade to the locally-oriented artwork, dining, furnishings, and social spaces carry a distinctive character. The staff are attentive and hospitable, willing to provide customized service to each guest.

Variety of guests

If you thought that the boutique and lifestyle hotel market was confined to just one niche market segment, you are wrong. These properties are popular with all sorts of customers ranging from seasoned executive travelers to the young crowd, due to the competitive prices that they offer. Guests can include business travelers, a family on holiday, and even the odd celebrity.

roof-1-300x225 Boutique Hotels - What Makes Them So Special

Atmosphere

While the majority of boutique hotels are historical buildings, even the new properties exude a strong character through their innovative design that reflects the local culture. This atmosphere is created not only by the ambiance, decor, and theme but also by the professional warmth and welcoming disposition that the hotel staff display.

Bespoke

Probably the best part about a boutique property is its individuality. A real boutique hotel strives to break away from the standard norms and create its own identity. Many boutique properties partner with acclaimed bartenders, disc jockeys, and local chefs. While some offer themed rooms, top-line or exclusive locally made bathroom amenities, some even offer environmental sustainability for the environment-conscious traveler.

Affordability

Boutique hotels are chic and luxurious yet have rates that are often more flexible than standard hotels. Boutique hotels have lobbies and cocktail bars as well. These spaces can either be relaxed and intimate or hip and happening, which is further accentuated with beautiful artwork and music. The rooms often have designer or locally crafted furniture and the latest gadgets ranging from in-house iPods to funky espresso machines. What more can you ask for?

Defining Features that Every Small Luxury Hotel Should Aim For

When we say “luxury hotel,” it’s not very difficult to imagine what the facility may look like. The decorations should be elegant, classy, and welcoming, and the staff members are expected to be professional, friendly, and forthcoming. You should also be able to expect great food and services from these places.

 

There isn’t a doubt that staying in a place like this should be an amazing experience. A luxury hotel isn’t usually known to be small, so when we hear someone says “small luxury hotel,” it can be quite confusing. How can a hotel be luxurious if it feels small and cramped? How do we know if the service is going to be as good if there aren’t that many staff members? How can a small facility have a great kitchen and amenities?

 

These are the questions many people ask when they hear about a small hotel, and these are all fair questions. If you’re not sure whether or not a small luxury hotel exists, let us tell you that it absolutely does. In this article, we’ll talk about the defining features of a small luxury hotel and its benefits. For those who are skeptical of the idea of staying in a small hotel, this article may very well change your mind!

ishan-seefromthesky-578851-unsplash-1-240x300 Defining Features that Every Small Luxury Hotel Should Aim For
Fast and Efficient Services


First things first – a truly luxurious hotel has to be very efficient with every process. It has to be quick and precise, and the service quality has to be on point as well. The service quality is what many small hotels pride themselves on, as that’s one of the main benefits of a smaller establishment — staff members are able to tend to each guest more personally and effectively. A small hotel only needs a handful of well-trained staff to operate. This means that the communication between each department should be faster and more efficient than a big hotel where everything has to go through reception first. The ease of communication will allow every employee to relay messages and carry out tasks a lot faster and more effectively.

Smart Interior Design


A small hotel has less space to work with, so the interior designer has to be very crafty with their furnishing choices. The decoration and appliances in the rooms have to be space-efficient, which means that if the designer can combine things together and utilize vertical real estate, each room will feel more spacious and less claustrophobic.

Accommodate the Guests’ Needs


A small hotel has to pick and choose their amenities wisely, as they don’t have a lot of rooms to work with. For example, if most of the guests are business executives and entrepreneurs, the hotel may want to include more meeting rooms than a swimming pool, as that’s something that the guests will need. The hotel may also offer babysitting services, bike rentals, or even tour booking if that’s what the guests are looking for.

Unique Dining Experience


For a small hotel to stay ahead of the competition, they need to have a distinct attraction that separates them from their competitors. Having an exclusive restaurant is one of the best ways to do this, as the exclusivity factor alone is enough to attract a lot of guests. Being able to dine at a restaurant that’s fully booked for half the year can give the guests a sense of achievement, and that will entice them to come back in the future.

Why Boutique Hotels are Becoming a Must for Business Travellers

The businesses of today are no longer restricted to the boardroom. Business now takes place over coffee meets, at a stylish cocktail bar, or even during lunch in the calm ambiance of a quiet restaurant. Such an environment coupled with personalized services, sophisticated décor, and a productive vibe is something all business travellers will appreciate. It takes away the stressful, claustrophobic, and mundane environment of a meeting room. Boutique hotels offer a lot more. Unlike standard chain hotels, these hotels have scenic surroundings, lavish food, and trendy décor to make your business trip memorable.

6-300x199 Why Boutique Hotels are Becoming a Must for Business Travellers

Choices of Business Travelers are Changing

Staying in a boutique hotel is much more rewarding compared to many other places of lodging. Businessmen are often already tired and worn out from work and just need to be in a relaxing environment when they are out of their offices. Boutique hotels have just the right services that allow people to conduct business as well as relax during their spare time. These hotels have placed themselves in the hotel industry as business-focused accommodations. Moreover, these hotels are a great place to celebrate, make memorable experiences, and immerse yourself in the local culture, rather than just working.

 

Here are the most significant reasons why business travelers prefer a boutique hotel:

 

  1. Availability of Required Technology

There are some amenities that are essential to conducting business smoothly.  However, most chain hotels lack amenities such as adequate space to work, a Wi-Fi connection, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, sumptuous food, and a convenient location. The most desired feature is the WiFi connectivity. Even though a lot of hotels have Wifi, boutique hotels have WiFi that is tailored for work. So if you want to send emails, talk to colleagues and clients over Skype, or collaborate in real time, you can do that without any disturbances. Moreover, these hotels also usually have large screens that you can use for video conferences. Other features that you can expect are fax and printing services. You may also get access to public computers stations. This makes boutique hotels ideal for business.

 

  1. Affordable Yet Trendy

Boutique hotels are extremely affordable and still sport a modern décor. Their rates are often similar to standard hotels. Along with that, you also get cocktail bars and lobbies. These tend to have an intimate and relaxed environment with soothing music and beautiful artwork. The rooms also tend to be decorated with modern designer furniture. The type of atmosphere creates an environment of relaxation after a day of work and business meetings.

 

  1. Caters to the Needs of the Company

One of the primary reasons why boutique hotels are becoming the first choice of business travellers is because they aim to meet all the specific needs of travellers of any particular company. Corporate managers can book such hotels with their requirements stated during the reservations. This ensures that the requirements of the travellers are met and no one is disappointed. Forward-thinking companies choose boutique hotels when they need to meet their clients so that the clients are impressed by the taste and style of the company.

 

  1. Personalized Services

Boutique hotels have staff trained in fostering good relationships with their guests. They offer speedy services with almost no waiting time. They also pay extreme attention to detail. The hotel workers understand the needs and the requirements of the guests. They offer personalized services to guests, which is one of the features that let boutique hotels stand out from the crowd. Personalized services allow guests to be comfortable even when they are far away from familiar surroundings.

 

  1. A Desirable Unpredictability

In most chain hotels, people know what to expect. This makes the hotels mundane and boring. Boutique hotels have a certain degree of unpredictability in their daily routine, making it fun to live in these places. They have unique décor, fanciful quirks, and complete personalities that make it stand out. You can spend the evening sipping herbal tea at the garden by the koi pond or be welcomed into a room lit up with scented candles. The food is also different than what you get at standard hotels. With these unique features, boutique hotels guarantee a stress-free business trip.

 

Bottom Line

Selecting the right accommodation makes all the difference in your business trip. Boutique hotels have everything that office space should have while being a place for modern accommodation. So if you are making plans for your next business trip, make sure that you pick one of these hotels to make the most out it!
