What is the definition of a boutique hotel?

 

Port Douglas boutique hotels pride themselves on being unique. They are typically small properties that are independently run or part of a small chain, with a strong personality and attention to detail, creating a more immersive and memorable experience for guests than the average hotel.

Guestrooms: Often fitted with luxury bedding, upscale bathrooms, premium toiletries and added unique touches. It’s common to find each room in a boutique hotel looks different.

Ambience: You’ll find distinctive decor and luxury artwork in every space from the lobby, to restaurants to guestrooms, often influenced by the local community or made by local artisans. There’s likely to be several welcoming communal spaces.

Design and Individuality: Every space in a Port Douglas boutique hotel is often designed to be not only beautiful, but interesting and engaging for guests. No generic hotel art in sight. Where large chain hotels tend to have similar decor across their properties, boutique hotels are more likely to go for one-of-a-kind effect. They may even incorporate local influences or craftsmanship. It’s also common for each guestroom to lookompletely different look than the next.

Experience: The smaller size and independence of a Port Douglas boutique hotel allows staff to offer a more personal experience to guests compared to most other hotels.

Is a boutique hotel the same as a luxury hotel?

 

No. Some boutique hotels are classed as luxury hotels, while others are not.

A boutique hotel must be small, whereas luxury hotels can be of any size. They are usually much larger, with hundreds of rooms. Boutique hotels are often independently-run or part of small boutique chain. Majority of luxury hotels are part of large international hotel chains. There are many luxury hotels that are not boutiques.

Not all boutique hotels are luxury hotels, but many are. A luxury Port Douglas boutique hotel will likely be fitted with luxury amenities like premium bedding, artisan toiletries and in-room conveniences, upscale decor and expensive furniture. It may also have a gourmet restaurant on-site.

Not necessarily. The price of boutique hotels varies. Some boutique hotels are expensive to stay in, but others are not.

Most Port Douglas boutique hotels are independent and have upscale amenities. They are also committed to high-quality, attentive guest services. Together, this creates a luxury experience. Therefore it's not uncommon to find boutique hotels classed as luxury hotels with higher rates.

However, there are often affordable boutique hotels too.
