The Boutique Lifestyle Leaders Association, commonly known as BLLA, has introduced 14 new types of categories within the hotel sector in a bid to ‘create clarity’ within the industry.

The aim is to help better define the modern boutique hotel for both hospitality professional and travellers.

The new categories have been devised to ‘reestablish and cement’ the boutique hotel sector as a field of its own and ‘no longer simply a subtype of a broader hotel enterprise’.
