Continuing to stand as a trusted resource for discovering and booking the world's most exceptional hotels, Kiwi Collection has set out to create a new industry standard with their updated web presence

The website is driven by a number of key themes, two of the most significant being, intuitive usability, and timeless design. Many changes have been inspired by client comments and research, such as larger, more cinematic photography, and enhanced keyword search functionality.
