5 Reasons to Stay at a Boutique Hotel

Few months ago, I was looking at hotels in Goa. After scanning through various properties, I chose a boutique hotel, The Cape Goa. And believe me, I have become a boutique hotel convert and would prefer them over regular or large chain hotels, anytime. As a frequent traveler, for me a hotel room isn’t just to freshen up and rest for a few hours, but is much more than that. Boutique hotels truly offer rich traveling experience. And if you look at reviews on various websites, you will notice that boutique hotels always have superior reviews. But, what is a boutique hotel and how is it different from any other hotel.

According to the definition by USA Today, “Boutique hotels are characterized by their intimate atmosphere and idiosyncratic style. They distinguish themselves from larger chain hotels by offering personalized attention and styled accommodations which play on a motif.”


If you’re looking for a hotel for your vacation or a business trip, here are 5 reasons to choose a boutique hotel.

1. Wow Factor

Everything about a boutique hotel will impress and dazzle you. The architecture, design, décor is unique and may be quirky or chic, modern or contemporary or historic or plain homely. Everything is unique and luxurious and will truly delight and surprise you.

2. Signature Dining

Food is love and life for all of us. And a boutique hotel invariably has an outstanding restaurant that draws the local crowds too.

3. Personalized Service

At a boutique hotel, you’re not just another guest. Since, there are only 5-50 rooms on an average, you can be assured of not just amazing customer service but amazing personalized customer service. They believe in tailoring to your personal preferences and you always feel like you are a special guest.

Some even provide doggy beds, so that the entire family can have a comfortable stay.

5. No Two Stays Are the Same

Each boutique hotel offers unique experiences and services. With warm and personalized services, you will be buzzing with exclusive experiences.
