BUDGET BOUTIQUE HOTELS, B&Bs AND LUXURY HOUSE


Our collection of budget boutique hotels may spare you the expense, but it certainly won’t skimp on the luxury. All of the small chic hotels in our unique collection of budget Chic Retreats have been selected by Lulu to ensure you find a luxury boutique B&B, small chic hotel or luxury villa without the high price tag.

Just because you’re watching the purse strings doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat well either, which is where our collection of budget boutique hotels comes in. The Marquis at Alkham in Kent is a magnet for foodies who want to eat at the hotel’s Michelin Rising Star restaurant before bedding down without breaking the bank. Dishes, which change seasonally, are a contemporary take on British fare and could typically include loin of venison or roast cod followed by earl grey and strawberry soufflé. There’s a Mediterranean menu at Hotel Biniarocca, a budget boutique hotel in Menorca where the excellent restaurant is set within beautiful rose gardens. 

Spa breaks can also be surprisingly affordable. At Grand Hotel des Bains in Brittany, indulge in a programme of thalassotherapy treatments and massages, eat healthy meals made from produce grown on the owner’s farm and sleep in simply designed rooms with a sea view.  La Belle Epoque, a new opening in Poitou-Charentes is a charming 3 room boutique hotel where guests can enjoy a luxury boutique hotel experience with a vintage twist without the 5 star price tag. Meanwhile, nature lovers should head to Summerplace Guesthouse, an adults-only boutique B&B in Madeira, where the setting is breathtaking. There’s an infinity pool with the sea beyond, beaches, mountains and valleys with miles of walking paths. Or perhaps you prefer Almohalla 51 a charming award-winning Chic Retreat in Andalucia.

Further afield in Ubud, Amori Villa is a small budget luxury hotel and villa in Bali surrounded by lush greenery with an infinity pool, open-air living/dining area and Jacuzzi. In Sri Lanka, the Apa Villas is set on a palm-fringed beach near Galle where you can go diving, fishing and cycle to explore nearby Buddhist temples. And if you opt for booking Gecko Villa, a budget luxury villa in North East Thailand (which sleeps 6) your friends and family will be surrounded by gardens, orchards and paddy fields - perfect for relaxing in total privacy.

Other self-catering options include the lovely Masseria Alchimia in Puglia, which is a former mansion house that has been transformed into 10 apartments, each with kitchenettes and terraces. They feature classic designs and furnishings from the likes of Philippe Starck, Philiipe Stack bathrooms and a changing display of art. Ski-lovers will be pleased to hear about our newest budget boutique hotel addition in Switzerland, Hotel Restaurant Bellevue, the best small boutique hotel in the ski village of Davos Wiesen.
