About UNIKTOUR > Comfort Levels
COMFORT LEVELSBoth our local operators and our team of explorers make it a point of honor to find the most charming locations for our travelers. Our selection criteria are: comfort, style, decoration, quality of reception, beauty of the surroundings, and, of course, all those elements that cannot be described, except, perhaps, simply as ‘charming’.
For our travelers, we offer accommodation that is friendly, charming, authentic, and well maintained. A little place of your own, where everyone can feel at home while on vacation…
Our travel philosophy is strongly focused on authenticity. We like working with small hotels run by locals (including B&Bs, lodges, and boutique hotels). This being said, we do not neglect those of you who want to travel with a little extra comfort. This is why we can offer luxury accommodation on the majority of our trips.
Generally speaking, when we come back from outings and excursions, we like to heighten the quality of our lodgings upon returning to the city. We think it’s important to balance adventure off the beaten path (in our outings) with a certain level of comfort in the city or in a resort. We do not offer low-end accommodation.
Our hotel classification
2/5 : Mostly for our small group travelers. Simple, modest, yet clean. This category also includes nights spent camping, in shelters, or bivouacs. For our tailor-made trips, our minimum is 3/5.
3/5 : This type of accommodation is friendly, charming, authentic, well maintained, and feels like a home away from home. Without any showy luxury, these simple lodgings have both personality and charm. We stay in B&Bs, riads, posadas, lodges, maybe one or two nights in a tent, and in small local hotels.
4/5 : Here we maintain the same approach geared towards a friendly and charming accommodation, but with a little more…A pool in the riad in Morocco, a wine cellar in a B&B in South Africa, a welcome cocktail waiting for you in your room at an Amazonian lodge, etc. This is superior accommodation.
5/5 : This category includes accommodation for those with a little bit more to spend. Even if we are talking 5-star here, remember that Uniktour specializes in “exotic” travel, and that we are not very fond of cement! We might send you to a Marriot or a Meridien when you arrive in a big city, but as soon as you leave, we are heading for a 5-star camp in the middle of the bush in Tanzania, or in a 5-star boutique hotel in an Indian tea plantation! In any event: we always pick the best places!
VIP : A collection of the best hotels in the country you are visiting. A trip where the accommodation cannot possibly get any better. A historic hotel, a world-renowned spa, wherever you’re staying, you are in one of the world’s best.
