One of the most prolific leaders in global hospitality, Fairmont Raffles Hotels and Resorts (“FRHI”) are the benchmark for excellence in hospitality, with over a century of experience in combining impressive architecture with luxuriously decadent accommodation, which is why I’m particularly excited to let you know they’ll be joining us at Connections Luxury this year.

FRHI excel at providing their guests with great memories of their stay, and wherever you wish to stay, there’s bound to be an experience to suit you, as the collection of hotels and resorts encompasses some of the most sought after destinations, best kept pristine beaches, most breathtaking ski hills and (my personal favourite) outstanding golf courses!

Always offering something more than just accommodation, FRHI provide their guests with experiences they just can’t get anywhere else, such as the newest addition to the portfolio, a pollinator bee hotel at their Toronto Fairmont Royal York. The 15-year-old rooftop garden and aviary is a sight to behold, and provides the restaurant with some of the most delicious herbs too, but the real buzz is over the new bee hotel, which is part of the Fairmont’s sustainability project, in which they aim to protect pollinator bees, which are facing a steady decline in population. The bees provide 95% of the wax and honey used in the hotel, so you can’t get much more locally sourced than that!

I could tell you about each and every hotel and resort that FRHI offer, but there simply isn’t enough time in the day. However, you should take a look at their website as they have some perfect destinations for luxurious breaks. I particularly like the look of their 32 acre Fairmont Orchid in Hawaii, which sits upon the stunning Kohala Coastline, with aquamarine waters and shimmering golden sand. Just perfect!

Of course it’s not just Fairmont Hotels… there are two other top brands in the FRHI stable: Raffles and Swissotel, both synonymous with the very best luxury experiences.

I can’t wait to meet with FRHI’s team on the 29th and 30th of September, and although we’re fully booked up, there are still a few options open to those who’d like to participate, so please do get in touch if you’d like to be involved.
