Each year, more than 1,000 independent boutique hotels apply to become a part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World portfolio. However, only 5 percent are invited to join the brand, meaning travelers can expect quality amenities, inviting atmospheres and impeccable accommodations when staying at an SLH-affiliated hotel. What's more, mystery inspectors visit the brand's 500-plus properties annually to ensure that guests are experiencing the highest standards of service and value. This brand markets itself as a champion of hidden treasures, so no two Small Luxury Hotels are alike. However, one consistent perk of the SLH brand is the free-to-join INVITED program. This three-tiered benefits system includes rewards like room upgrades and free breakfast. Most importantly, this brand gives customers options: Its portfolio includes everything from family-friendly historical inns to adults-only resorts with Michelin-starred restaurants. Keep in mind, most of the brand's hotels are located outside of the United States, with numerous outposts in Europe and Asia. You can explore several Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties on our Best Hotels rankings.

    The Margi
    Vari-Voula-Vouliagmeni
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 840 reviewsTripAdvisor (840)
    Free WiFi

    About 12 miles south of Athens, The Margi is located in the "Athenian Riviera" just a short walk from the area's beaches. Rooms and suites embrace "colonial, Mediterranean and ethnic influences" in their design. All accommodations come with free Wi-Fi access, flat-screen TVs, minibars, safes and views of either the pool, courtyard, ocean or forest. One unique aspect about this property is that it's home to its own nearly 5-acre farm. The hotel offers guided tours around the vegetable garden; guests can also feed the animals and enjoy live cooking demonstrations. Once you get hungry, head to Nilaya, Malabar or Patio for delectable dishes with ingredients sourced directly from the farm. And don't forget to explore other parts of the hotel besides its culinary offerings. The Margi boasts a pool surrounded by lounge chairs and cabanas, a spa and fitness suite, and a team of concierges to help organize local restaurant reservations, offer shopping tips and schedule local activities. And many noted the concierges here are top-notch. Other travelers offered praise for the food at the on-site eateries and the relaxing pool area.
