Posted on January 25, 2017

Pacific Resort Hotel Group (PRHG) is delighted to announce the inclusion of Little Polynesian Resort into one of the world’s most exclusive, independent and finest luxury hotel brands – Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH).

The award-winning Little Polynesian Resort is the newest member of the PRHG portfolio, delivering absolute beachfront serenity and seclusion, the resort offers guests an unsurpassed luxury boutique resort experience.

Until now PRHG’s Pacific Resort Aitutaki has been the only SLH resort in the Cook Islands.  With their newest property on Rarotonga joining this this exclusive group, SLH Club members and other discerning independent travellers have the option to experience two world class full service resorts in the Cook Islands.

PRHG CEO, Greg Stanaway said “Branding Little Polynesian Resort under the SLH banner will not only amplify global visibility and marketing opportunities for the resort, but also help build further awareness for the Cook Islands as a destination in numerous key markets. Recognising luxury and excellence, it is a significant honor to have Little Polynesian Resort as a part of this esteemed network.

Small Luxury Hotels of the World, a prestigious and selective group, caters to guests seeking one-of-a-kind experiences at independently spirited hotels. Receiving over 1,000 applications from international hotels annually, SLH accepts a small fraction of those meeting their strict criteria to become part of the SLH brand.

The SLH Brand has been the recipient of a number of prominent World Travel Awards, including World’s Leading Boutique Hotel Brand, and World’s Leading Luxury Hotel Brand Website.

With this acceptance, Little Polynesian Resort is among 20 other SLH properties located in the South Pacific region. Beyond that, the brand includes more than 500 other small, independent hotels across 80 different countries around the world.
