Small Luxury Hotels of the World launches new sustainable luxury collection


Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has launched a new collection, aimed at recognising the sustainable luxury hotels going the extra ‘eco mile’.

The Considerate Collection debuts with 26 hotels in 16 countries, each of which has been judged by a criteria created in consultation with the likes of Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC) and the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO); and Greenview.

In the UK, the Grove of Narberth in Pembrokeshire is featured in the new Collection.

Criteria for the Considerate Collection align with the GSTC Criteria across three key pillars ensuring all the hotels are ‘Community Minded, Cultural Custodians and Environmentally Conscious. 

Each hotel within the Considerate Collection either has been certified by a GSTC Accredited Certification Body or certified to a GSTC Recognised Standard, or has passed an assessment by the SLH Sustainability Advisory Panel with review by the GSTC. 

Daniel Luddington, VP of development, Small Luxury Hotels of the World said: “This is not about creating a new brand, but rather building on the strong brand values that have existed within SLH since inception – independent spirits, community-centric, questioners, storytellers and the ultimate belief that Small is beautiful and a better way to travel.

“We also have an exciting pipeline of new hotels to add in the coming months.” 

Each hotel in the Considerate Collection is also featured within a specific section on the website and the hotel pages stamped with a sage leaf and include dedicated content outlining their sustainability initiatives.

SLH currently comprises a hotel portfolio of over 520 hotels in 90 countries.
