About Chic Locations
Experience the world with Chic Locations!
We might be a new name to you, but Chic Locations has a wealth of experience. We are known travel personalities, both in the UK and overseas. We are highly respected for our professionalism, originality and have a genuine desire and passion to provide our clients with something unique.
We fully understand that real value can be the opposite to low cost and we have selected hotels that satisfy our mutually demanding criteria, rather than just a budget.
We are boutique not only in our hotel preference but also in the service we provide.
We are proud to be considered a Luxury Boutique Operator – the emphasis is on flexibility and quality – with our arrangements crafted to a certain style, rather than something less enduring. Our clients usually create the right impression, in their general sense of style, something that many hotels actually comment upon and rather like!
All of our chosen hotels are regarded as the very best in their region
Many are frequent award winners on the international stage. Several will already be known to you, but we have many more that we are delighted to be introducing to the UK for the first time.
We are based in Wimbledon Village, an area known for its individuality with numerous boutique shops, restaurants and café culture. Our location sums up our approach rather well.
We aim to provide our clients with friendly, informative and totally flexible experience. Proudly rejecting corporate ubiquity in favour of something that can be tailored to your personal requirements.
We are fortunate in operating at the top end of travel, and our clients tend to be more value-conscious than price sensitive.
We are not committed financially to any destination or resort. Equally, we are not linked to any geographical area through our name, so we can be totally unbiased in our suggestions.
We are able to discuss holidays that offer the opportunity of individual experiences, rather than a one size fits all, call centre, negative system attitude.
We know that you have many travel options, but we think you will find our approach and in particular are very candid and informative style, delightfully refreshing. We want you to make informed holiday decisions and we are here to assist.
Use our expertise to design something that suits your desires perfectly. We hope you enjoy reading our website. We look forward to welcoming you to one of our fantastic CHIC Locations.

Click for Booking Terms, Price Guides, Flight & Covid Information
All price guides are Per Person Sharing Double Room (Entry level), based on travel between May and/or June when prices are generally at their lowest and include promotional offers. Supplements will probably apply at other times, particularly mid-summer in the Med, and for rooms and/or transfers arranged for single travellers. For example, the Caribbean and Indian Ocean prices for winter can be approximately double the May - June level and about 50% more in Asia. For the Mediterranean & Canary Islands, Caribbean, Arabia and the Indian Ocean (except Sri Lanka) price guides generally include airfare and transfers.
*For Sri Lanka and Far East we show a per person per night hotel guide, excluding air fare, as arrangements tend to be individually tailored multi-centre itineraries.

=== COVID-19 ===
Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, some hotels may have changed their facilities. Standard descriptions like distance from airport or town remain consistent as does the overall resort style. However, the number of restaurants, and swimming pools, if more than one, are by example flexible and can change depending on occupancy and circumstances. Spa facilities, in particular, may be altered depending on local and international suggestions.
If your holiday decision is based on any specific facility please let us know at the time of booking so we can ascertain availability from the hotel. Please note that information may be accurate at the time given but could be subject to change. It would be prudent to be open-minded and flexible on such matters in these times.
The situation on destination entry seems to vary month to month, or in some cases week to week or even day-to-day.
