Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has unveiled seven more actively sustainable luxury hotels to its recently-launched Considerate Collection, demonstrating a continued commitment to sustainability.
The group also rolls out a new 50-point sustainability module within its comprehensive Mystery Inspection programme from January 2022 to support the efforts of its 500+ strong portfolio of independently-owned luxury hotels.
Launched in October 2021, the Considerate Collection now features 33 hotels across 25 countries. Six of the *new hotels are existing SLH member hotels, indicative of SLH’s 30-year deeply rooted sustainable ethos. They are: Arctic Bath, Harads, Sweden; Bergwelt Grindelwald – Alpine Design Resort, Grindelwald, Switzerland; Breidenbacher Hof, Düsseldorf, Germany; Ca’ di Dio, Venice, Italy; Grand Forest Metsovo, Metsovo, Greece; and The George, Christchurch, New Zealand.
The programme’s launch has also given way to new hotel prospects such as the new-to-SLH hotel Op Oost, Oosterend, Netherlands, which also joins the Considerate Collection.
All Considerate Collection hotels have either been certified by a GSTC Accredited Certification Body or certified to a GSTC Recognised Standard, or have passed an assessment by the SLH Sustainability Advisory Panel with review by the GSTC.
“Given the trials and tribulations the hospitality sector is still facing, it fills us with pride to see more SLH hoteliers passionately progressing on their sustainable journey, and for the Considerate Collection to spark immediate interest from new hotels that further prove sustainable luxury is the way forward,” comments Daniel Luddington, VP of Development, Small Luxury Hotels of the World.
“The Dutch do it well with Op Oost, a chic farmhouse boutique where nature has the highest and last word, as it should be.”
