How can I trust &Seleqt's hotel, Villas selection ?
A hotel has to be genuinely special to make it into our portfolio. Properties / Partners do not pay a fee to be included, but this doesn’t mean that a place can buy their way in – the Advisors or Affiliate partners team has to have decided it make senses to list a property, before we even consider adding it to our exclusive, selection or collection; it depends how you want to call it.
There are few strict conditions that apply so to benefits our members in many ways, such as their stay, added value and benefits, special rates negotiated for them, to name a few …

Whenever you book through us, you receive a special extra care and attention to details for all your request by our travel advisors.
You do get ‘rate guarantee’ applicable on each stay or booking hotels or private villas, and you also do get additional discount on any published rates with up to 20% off guaranted, plus benefits and added values.

Some extras fees may be applicable for some special-offer bookings – if that’s the case, it will be clearly displayed. In addition, you get access to year-round exclusive offers with special members discount always.
Are you able to guarantee a particular room at a hotel?
We can’t always guarantee a specific room when a hotel has several rooms in one room category – but we can certainly do our best. If there’s a particular room you’d like to stay in (like connecting rooms for family), please let us know and we’ll see what we can do, and most time if not always we make it happened.
Part of the Travel Club will always have the option open and we will ask if their is a room or villa they prefer, so to request each booking.

They are generally not included in the room rate, unless specified, but we always propose or include transfer in the booking / reservations and will arrange transfers for you – just ask when you book.
