Our hoteliers are the most unique in the hospitality industry thanks to a fearless imaginative spirit and their ability to immerse guests in the local scene.
Jump from a helicopter into virgin Alpine snow in Italy. Dine with local creatives in the heart of Paris. Find inner peace with guided meditation on a private beach in Bali. Throughout the world, our Originals combine their local knowledge and their passion for the unexpected to create unforgettable moments for their guests.
Our Originals are global thinkers, but also local doers—neighborhood heroes whose hotels become creative gathering points and cultural institutions for both travelers and members of the surrounding community.
Each Original is, by definition, profoundly different. Yet they share essential traits: Originals take risks. They possess a strong sense of aesthetics. And they are driven by a passion to deliver a wholly unique hospitality experience.
