Every new year comes with new goals and bucket lists. From working out to get that perfect ass by summer vacation or saving up for that Euro trip, there's a lot to aim for come January. Thankfully Virtuoso just made your travel planning slightly easier with an ultimate list of the most anticipated hotel openings of 2017 around the globe.
The Bangkok EDITION, Thailand
A concept hotel that takes the cake for its innovation and cutting-edge architecture, the Bangkok EDITION is a highly-anticipated hotel that will occupy a section of the futuristic 77-story MahaNakhon Tower, located in the heart of central downtown. With one super sleek exterior, the hotel will share space with Ritz Carlton residences and boast the best rooftop patio in the entire city. So if you're looking for the most epic of views in Thailand... you know where to go.
Adare Manor, Ireland
When it comes to a one-of-a-kind stay, you can't do better than the Adare Manor in Ireland. For a complete fairy-tale trip, the hotel offers classic cars for hire, open-top MGB Roadsters and E-Type Jaguars included. After arriving in style to the spellbinding 19th century castle, guests can choose from archery, falconry, horse riding and hunting to while away your afternoons. And if golf is more your thing, you'd be happy to hear that world-renowned golf architect Tom Fazio designed all the greens on the revamped property himself.
Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya, Mexico
While technically unveiled in December 2016, the Andaz Mayakoba just had to be included on this list. With their breezy open-floor villas that wind around a crystal green lagoon, this is likely the most luxurious spot on the whole Riviera Maya. Start your day off with sunrise yoga on the picture-perfect beaches, and wrap up your afternoons with a dip in either the hotel's three outdoor pools or any of the famous nearby swimming holes of Tulum. Renowned for their locally-inspired cuisine and impeccable attention to detail, this newest addition to the Andaz family of hotels does not fail to live up to its reputation.
Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, America
It's almost a given that a hotel with both 'Waldorf' and 'Beverly Hills' in its name would make it on this list. Possessing a quintessentially Californian vibe with a touch of French flavor, the Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills project involved both legendary interior designer Pierre-Yves Rochon and master chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The result is the most luxurious addition to 90210.
The Fontenay Hamburg, Germany
Opening on the banks of peaceful Lake Alster next fall, the five-star Fontenay will be a beautiful sight to behold. With floor-to-ceiling windows in every room, the ceramic-clad property is minimalist yet cosmopolitan and provides over 1000 square feet of blissful spa treatments. It will also be the first new luxury hotel for Hamburg in 18 years, and is rumored to have cost over 100 million euros to build.
Park Hyatt St. Kitts, St. Kitts and Nevis
Set on the ridge of the volcanic island of Nevis, the Park Hyatt St. Kitts will sit on a pristine section of Banana Bay facing the turquoise waters. If that already sounds like the definition of paradise, wait until you hear about all the perks they offer: besides the usual diving and snorkeling, guests will also have the option of yachting on the warm waters and enjoying blissful yoga beneath the stars.
