“Planning your next holiday? Thinking of staying at a new, exciting hotel? The luxury travel market will see hundreds of new properties open in 2016, all around the world, so there will be plenty to choose from. But how to avoid the duds? Luckily, there is no better place to begin the search for a future dream hotel stay than our master list.
Following the success of our 2015 compilation of the Hottest Luxury Hotel Openings, we decided to up the ante this year with an even more comprehensive selection. This time, we give you 60 new jaw-dropping, mouth-watering, luxury-tastic openings—plus almost twice as many mentions—and a separate list of the 20 Hottest Hotel Openings of 2016 in Africa. Boom!
You can rely on us picking the gems from the sea of cookie-cutter accommodation and garish nouveau riche resorts. Expect to find the absolute crème de la crème of hotels and resorts that aim to raise the bar in luxury, amenities, sophistication and experience.
A short note on methodology: the order of all the hotels on the list is not of great importance, maybe with the exception of the first few—and especially the resort we kick off with. It really is a stunner, and it deserves to be at #1.
