    A single point of contact, no matter your destination

    From your very first booking with us, one of our 30 Guest Experience Managers is assigned to you. That’s the person who will accompany you on all your travels. A weekend getaway to the jagged mountains of Italy, a family holiday to Asia or a recommendation of a new restaurant to try, there is nothing your GEM can’t help you with, and over time, your tastes and preferences will become theirs so they can better assist you.

  • Benefits that just get better with each reservation

    Benefits that just get better with each reservation

    One of the high points of our partnership with the hotels invited to join our Collection is the exclusive benefits they are willing to offer to our members. And these benefits just get better with each reservation you make! On your first booking with us, this means the best room in the category you choose, and a room upgrade subject to availability.

    A label of exception in hospitality

    Grand Luxury is a collection of 450 exceptional hotels across the globe, but how do we choose these addresses that we recommend? We do it through an in-depth analysis of every property, and demanding quality controls and evaluations by our founders themselves, Ivan and Rouslan Lartisien, with nothing but excellence in mind. The Collection is also reviewed every year and only the hotels that our members systematically rate ‘Remarkable’ are retained.

    I love this property. The front desk receptionist on arrival should not be doing her job. Poor communication skills and pretty much no service at all. Check out reception lady was completely difference and extremely helpful. Overall I think the property needs to re-evaluate it's signage as it's difficult to find one's way around. Part of the charm I guess, but a few more directional signs would be an improvement
