We are a team dedicated to sharing the unearthed gems of boutique travel. This form of travelling is an intimate, personalised, and eclectic chic way of venturing around the globe. Our business defines the key elements of boutique travel, giving our readers the opportunity to become part of local life and connect with the place that they are in. Our philosophy is a lifestyle that goes beyond the travel trends. What we keep at the forefront of our business:


Sure it's easy to contact hotels, tours and restaurants and put together a story but how would that really help you? At Travel & Lust we ensure that we publish the personal experiences from our travels, so that you can rest assure that you get a real insight and updated account. Our readers are more interested in the local aspect of travelling and want to immerse themselves in a new place, they are professionals that are often time-poor and seek efficient and sophisticated guides. Therefore we publish our experiences with private Tours for like minded individuals. Tour guides will go out of their way to eliminate your trial and error decisions and make you immune to any confusions in your destination. Travel like a local with private tour guides passionate about the destination. 


Some people think more is always better, but we like to differ. Our audience is all about well presented qualitative information, in which case less is sometimes more. We take our time sourcing places, creating an attractive shortlist that will not only appeal to our readers but will also help them whilst planning a trip. Our preference is to stay in smaller, sometimes family owned hotels, riads, b&b's and apartments whilst getting a feel for the place. Our Hotel Reviews page is a list of our favourite stays experienced personally, and Black Book is our directory of world wide boutique hotels that fall in the criteria of boutique travel.


Travel & Lust targets cultural travel not just luxury, and we help readers attain this on different budgets. A hotel may not be the most luxurious but may be more affordable and come with lots of special touches that enhance a guest’s stay. It is this type of value and service that we will always point out whilst on our travels.
