Forget the big chains and 5 star hotels! These small and luxurious boutique hotels are more casual, personal and intimate. You won’t hear any ‘Sirs’ and ‘Madams’ here – it’s more about ‘Jim, how are you?’ Welcome Beyond introduces some of its favourites.

— Boutique hotel pick #1: 40 Winks in London, England

Take off your shoes and step into this otherworldly space of David Carter’s imagination. Located in trendy East London, 40 Winks is a small boutique hotel with just two rooms. Called an illusionist and conjuror, successful interior designer David explains: “I want to create wonderful and extraordinary spaces that captivate and seduce people, that take them on a journey of the senses. Some of the rooms are very dark, mysterious and womb-like. Other rooms are drenched in light. I like contrast and juxtaposition. It’s quirky, eccentric and playfully glamorous.”

— Boutique hotel pick #3: Farmhouse Hotel & Spa in Mallorca, Spain

Hidden away in the quiet north-eastern part of Mallorca, this luxury boutique hotel is an oasis of peace and relaxation. A derelict 18th century farmhouse was brought back to life by a majorcan architect, creating a rustic hotel & spa of understated elegance and great creativity. Ten luxurious rooms with private terraces are elegantly decorated in soothing tones: nothing in excess, just a carefully selected mixture of the old and the modern where every corner, tap or vase seems ‘in synch’ with the spirit of the place.

— Boutique hotel pick #2: Monaci delle Terre Nere in Sicily, Italy

Monaci delle Terre Nere is a newly opened boutique hotel in Sicily at the foot of Mount Etna sits amidst an organic farm overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The six rooms come with rare thoughtfulness and exquisite taste. An old wine press and fresco paintings shimmering through the ceilings are traces of the building’s past and are in perfect harmony with wonderfully eccentric paintings by British-Brazilian artist Olivier Mourao, modern furnishings by Flos or B&B Italia and the owner’s personal collection of antiques – making this stylish retreat a truly memorable experience.

Torre di Moravola is a luxury boutique hotel in Umbria, Italy, offering panoramic views from the four terraces surrounding the tower, open massage pavilions, herb gardens that scent the air and an infinity pool overlooking the Tiber Valley.
