Top Ten Luxury

HOTTEST NEW HOTELS 2016

This annual list is now in its sixth sensational year.  It’s a Top Ten that is fiercely fought over: Manolo stiletto duels at dawn, Hermes handbag bludgeonings, the smashing of champagne bottles - and that’s just in the office*.  We confess we haven’t relied on office arguments alone and we thank ILTM Cannes (www.iltm.com), where the luxe tribe meet each December, for inspiration and information. We wouldn’t miss it.   So here at last are the ten MOST scorching new openings of 2016. St Regis Langkawi, Park Hyatt St Kitts, The Nai Harn Phuket, The James West Hollywood we haven’t forgotten you. We just can’t mention all the fabulous hotels on offer, so keep checking our popular Hotel Openings section throughout the year.

*No opening night party invites, suite upgrades or chocolates on pillows have influenced the compiling of this list.

Check out our choices in 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
