Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has partnered with La Vie Hotels and Resorts (La Vie) to provide bespoke tailor-made hotel management services for independent luxury hotels across the Asia-Pacific region.
This partnership will see La Vie’s bespoke management solutions and operational services, together with SLH’s global sales, marketing and distribution network, create an end-to-end solution for independent hotels to become competitive in a global travel marketplace.
The qualified hotels will also gain recognition and affiliation as members of SLH’s exclusive brand portfolio.
The first luxury hotel to join the SLH brand will be the award-winning Islington Hotel Hobart in Tasmania, Australia. La Vie acquired this historic 11-room hotel earlier this year and will be bringing it back to its former ‘stately’ charm. Another project includes a new build in Sydney’s Surry Hills district due to open in December.
Mark Wong, senior vice president Asia Pacific, SLH said: “Our winning combination of ‘Act Local. Think Global.’ will offer entrepreneurial management and distribution solutions that are relevant and effective for independently spirited hotels.”
Jerry Xu, CEO and founder of La Vie, said: “The Islington Hobart lends itself perfectly to SLH’s clientele and we look forward to adding a few more properties to SLH’s portfolio over the coming months.”
