Sustainable hotels join together under SLH banner

Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) has announced the launch of Considerate Collection, a group of actively sustainable luxury hotels.

Considerate Collection debuts with 26 hotels in 16 countries, each meeting "the highest criteria" in sustainability.

SLH has collaborated with key sustainable travel and luxury hospitality players to create what it believes will be a trusted and transparent framework.

These include the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO); and Greenview, whose platform is the only GSTC-recognised sustainable tourism management tool.

Daniel Luddington, VP of Development, Small Luxury Hotels of the World said: "We've carefully curated the Considerate Collection to spotlight luxury boutique hotels for their sustainability efforts, making it easier for customers and the travel trade to make better-considered choices.

"Staying in small, independent hotels goes hand in hand with travelling sustainably and all SLH hotels are already steeped in the many facets of sustainable hospitality, so we haven't had to look far outside of our portfolio for the launch 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 Recognized Standard, or has passed an assessment by the SLH Sustainability Advisory Panel with review by the GSTC.

Members include the Domaine de Manville in Les Baux de Provence, France; and Pimalai (top image) on Koh Lanta, Thailand, a resort that was on my radar before Covid and remains so.
