|Luxury at The Raffles Hotel in Singapore|
Luxury hotels and their finer experience are still in demand for many discerning travellers despite the rise in global hotel prices in light of a healing economy, according to research.
Online accommodation booking agent Hotels.com revealed study results from their Hotel Price Index (HPI) that clearly reflect this demand in the increase of luxurious boutique hotel development in Singapore
While room rates in Singapore’s five-star hotels are the second most expensive worldwide Hotels.com shows travellers they can have luxury without breaking the bank.
Vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific for Hotels.com Johan Svanstrom said places like Singapore will remain strong with more intra-Asia travellers coming to the fore.
“There are savings on offer for great hotels, of which some travellers might not even be aware,” Mr Svanstrom commented.
When discussing the choice of a hotel, the Vice president suggested a location a little out of the usual way as it can still mean a high-end experience, and on top of that something unique to remember.
Sites such as Hotels.com that have done the research allows significant savings to be passed on to travellers, who can use the saved money from the hotel on activities.
Besides providing the comfort and luxury of top-tier hotels, it is also characteristic of these contemporary designer establishments to provide guests with a distinctive travel experience, boosted by stylish and sometimes quirky interior décor.
The HPI is a regular survey of hotel prices in major destinations across the world and is based on bookings made on Hotels.com with prices shown actually paid by customers.
