As this decade closes, we’re reflecting on how much has changed in the hospitality industry.
For years, one of the many things that travellers love about staying in a hotel has been the familiarity and the comforts, from the initial greetings at check-in through all the stay including the luxury amenities and personalised welcome kits upon arrival in the suite or assigning the favorite suite, lately this trend has changed.
Technology, in some cases, replaced the front desk agents at some hotels by a tablet or in-app check-in. In 2012 Conrad launched the first hotel-branded app, now hotel apps are crucial for many travelers. There have been mergers and acquisitions and many hotel chains expanded creating large hotel brands making easier for travellers to use their points and miles.
The increasing number of short term rental properties in the market also has changed the way travellers choose where to stay. There have been number of issues regarding the lack on the hospitality experience in many of the properties offered creating unpleasant stays.

Haute Retreats combines the essence of the hospitality experience in a luxury hotel and the privacy and comfort of a luxury villa. What a luxury home gives are privacy and the flexible schedule. Haute Retreats has made a selection of villas that guarantees you a vacation comfortably resort feeling, but always giving you the exceptional and luxury feeling of a beautiful vacation villa. A resort villa is a luxury home where guests have all the services ensured in a luxury hotel with your own privacy. The selection of the villas go through a 350 point inspection further more a resort villa features services on the demand: a house manager (assisting guests from check in to check out, arranging yoga lessons, tennis lessons, cooking classes, a private chef or cook – Michelin chefs are the most requested), daily maid service, butler service, personal trainers and all the facilities and amenities like a private gym, a private spa room, an indoor pool, a bar with a bar tender, a home office and much more. There are also villas selected that are located within a luxury resort and have free access to the amenities of the resort: restaurants, beach clubs, spa…
Check in and check out times are usually the same as the check in and check out times hotels have. There are cases when your check in is late but the villas selected have a in house manager that will be delighted to welcome you any time. Families have started to prefer and book a luxury home instead of a hotel so to have access to a private kitchen where guests can access anytime during the day.
What Haute Retreats is including to its portfolio are resort villas. The hotel experience in USA background brought by Sabrina, CEO and Founder, and also the management of luxury villas in Costa Rica made possible to blend the routine of a vacation resort in a stunning exceptional luxury villa stay with the difference that you can choose your style in a villa selected from Haute Retreats.

“The human touch is that little snippet of physical affection that brings a bit of comfort, support, and kindness. It doesn’t take much from the one who gives it, but can make a huge difference in the one who receives it.” – Mya Robarts
