The morning dew has set in, balmy nights are a thing of the past and summer holidays feel like a lifetime ago. But rest assured, you just need to look further afield for summer rays that last throughout the year.

That’s the beauty of having a global brand of luxury hotels at your fingertips – Small Luxury Hotels of the World offers more than 500 independently minded properties in more than 80 destinations around the world.

A secluded summer getaway is never a bad idea, and SLH offers a range of stunning sun kissed properties just waiting to warm up your winter bones.

Those wanting to sip margaritas by the sea as they lap up the Caribbean sun in Tulum have a range of choice, including the idyllic Mi Amor, the beachside bliss of La Zebra, the lush nature of El Pez or the stunning sea views of Mezzanine.

For the ultimate beach break, there’s no place better than the Maldives. With its iconic white-sand beaches and 360 degree views of the ocean, there’s no amount of cold winter rain that can dampen the picturesque setting of Velassaru Maldives.

Likewise, the exclusive island resort of Petit St. Vincent boasts private Caribbean beaches at each and every turn. No luxury is spared – the resort includes a tranquil spa, a variety of water sports and two restaurants.
