The world’s best new luxury hotels

Despite the pandemic, travel has resumed across much of the world and hotels are doing all they can to attract these travelers.

The luxury hotel sector is no exception. In fact, according to recent data from Luxury Travel Intelligence, an organization focused on helping travelers make informed decisions about their journeys, high-end lodgings are more than healthy.

V Villas, Phuket

It’s the 19 glassy, private-pool villas which most impress, though – flowing easily between straight-lined indoor and outdoor spaces, these prove ultra-relaxing, and have butlers on speed dial.

Six Senses Shaharut, Israel

Set between rocks and dunes, this indulgent wellness retreat combines typical Six Senses amenities – such as high-calibre visiting spa practitioners and a yoga studio – with an outdoor cinema and beguiling local touches: rich Israeli food, cacti-lined living quarters, and even a camel farm.

Kalesma Mykonos, Greece

Tastefully modeling itself on a typical, whitewashed Greek village that tumbles down to the sea, Kalesma’s exemplary design also extends to lattice work referencing local dovecotes and the same marble used to build Athens’ Parthenon.

One&Only Portonovi, Montenegro

Set beachside by a new marina-resort on glittering Kotor Bay, its perks range from barrel-aged cocktails and food by Giorgio Locatelli to a Chenot Espace spa – as well as the marbly, modern-Venetian entrance lobby.

Raffles Udaipur, India

It occupies a 21-acre private island on Udai Sagar Lake, and comes framed by ornamental gardens. This helps to create a wonderfully restful air, along with every suite having its own pool, an impressive spa, flexible all-day dining and dreamy temple views.

Villa Nai 3.3, Croatia

On the unsung, wisp-thin island of Dugi Otok, this adults-only retreat is commendably conscious. Its eight bright rooms have been carefully carved into hillsides to minimize disrupting the surrounding olive-oil estate’s landscape.

Patina, Maldives

For while guests can beachcomb, swim a crystalline lagoon or relax in overwater villas, they can also visit a Marine Village to shop and visit galleries with other guests of the resort.

Borgo Santandrea, Italy

Overseen by two Italian families, this boutique hotel epitomises everything that makes the Amalfi Coast so romantic. Chic interiors give way to sea views from all 47 cliffside rooms, and three lofty restaurants champion regional ingredients.

The Woodward, Geneva

This Geneva address sees the Oetker Collection seamlessly blend its rural properties’ ultra-luxe facilities with the intimacy of a small, classy city hotel.

Kisawa Sanctuary, Mozambique

Despite royal princess Nina Flohr being behind this 750-acre sanctuary on beach-lined Benguerra Island, the real headline is its devotion to sustainability: exceptional bungalows, Mini Mokes for freeform exploring and a coral reef.
