By rewarding our loyal customers for their continued business with generous benefits and encouraging new guests with excellent value for money on their luxury hotel stays, we’ve ensured the upward curve we began the year on continues in the right direction,” comments Paul Kerr, CEO of SLH.
In only a few months, 13 new properties have joined the SLH brand, making it a total of 30 new members in 2012 to date, with seven new properties in Europe and the Middle East, two in the Americas and four in the Asia Pacific.

This is combined with success in emerging and lesser-known destinations including Lithuania and various locations in Asia.
