Life is too short. Why not stay in a place worth remembering.
Since 1999 HIP Hotels has specialised in finding the world’s most interesting and individual hotels. We feel travel should be memorable, and we think that where you stay is as important as where you go. From cutting edge urban hangouts in the world’s biggest cities to rustic retreats in the middle of nowhere, HIP Hotels offers an exotic global variety of choice.
It all started with a globe-trotting photographer writing about his favourite places to stay. Herbert Ypma still travels to, photographs, and writes about all the hotels featured in the HIP Hotels books and on www.hiphotels.com. Now there is also an expansive programme of Apps to allow the iPhone user to access all sorts of unique hotels.
The first App to be released is called Dude Ranch. It is a collection of five different ranches dotted around the United States that offer an authentic Wild West experience without sacrificing comfort or luxury.
From Cibolo Creek, a huge ranch in the Big Bend of Texas to Robert Redford’s Sundance Resort – the place that gave birth to one of the most important independent film festivals – to Dunton Hot Springs, a funky art-filled ghost town in the Rockies, to Rancho de la Osa, a colourful rancho in Arizona’s picturesque south: Dude Ranch is all about fulfilling your fantasies. A spectacular alternative to your run-of-the-mill beach holiday.
Travel is all about adventure and experiences, and the HIP Hotels Applications make it easy. Each App gives you an elaborate slideshow of each property, complete with tips on where to eat, how to relax, where to explore and where you will sleep. Booking is even easier. A freephone number is featured on each App; simply highlight the number and you will be dispatched straight through to a Travel Guru at our call centre who can arrange everything, including airfares.
