About the Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels (SM)

The Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels(SM) concept was founded on the premise that personal luxury means different things to different people. It's now more personal than ever. The distinct destinations of the Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels(SM) are known for their individual attentions, chef-driven cuisine, and what our guests will define as pleasure, comfort, happiness, taste and escapism.

A redefining of the perspective from property focused to guest focused. Where we open the door so the guest can choose transformation over accommodation, customization over conformity, and inspiration over vacation. It is the answer to a craving of guests who want to feel special again. What a departure from the past!

In order to catapult the mark to the modern age, the new Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels(SM) logo is presented with a dramatic crescent forming the shadow of the keyhole. Further, the crescent, placed to the right of the keyhole and in combination with the keyhole, also represents a stylized "P" – the initial letter of the Personal Luxury Resorts & Hotels(SM), depicting the increasingly archaic concept of personal attention, revived and delivered.
