New Hotel Openings - Fall/Winter 2016

Editors' Picks

So many incredible hotels have opened their doors in the last few months, we had to create our own tracking list to keep on top of them. Here are some of our favorite openings over the last 6 months (many are offering special introductory offers in addition to Virtuoso amenities and perks) - we can't wait to check out a few ourselves and report back. To stay updated on every new opening, follow us on Instagram at Inviatotravel.

Park Hyatt Mallorca

Park Hyatt’s first property in Mallorca (and in Europe), the 142-room Park Hyatt Mallorca debuted in June featuring three restaurants, spa, three outdoor pools and a multitude of onsite activities in the Canyamel Hills on the East Coast of Mallorca. The village-style complex serves as an ideal central base due to its proximity to villages and sites while offering many activities on its premises.

Soho House, Barcelona

One of the most anticipated openings this year is the newest Soho House in Barcelona (and their first outpost in Spain) which opened in October. This 6-floor, 60-room hotel is housed in a magnificent 19th century building near the port own Plaza Medinaceli. We like the rooftop pool, 30-seat cinema, Cowshed spa and Cecconi’s restaurant!

 

Il Sereno, Lake Como Italy

One of the most anticipated hotel debuts in 2016, Il Sereno in Lake Como officially opened in July. Sister hotel to posh Le Sereno in St. Barths, Il Sereno is being hailed as the ‘Lake Como for the next generation’. Think modern and edgy compared to some of the more traditional neighbors but with the same stunning scenery. George and Amal live close by.

Gran Hotel Montesol, Ibiza

The Gran Hotel Montesol in Ibiza, Spain reopened August 31st after a complete and gorgeous renovation as the Curio Collection by Hilton. Opened in 1933, this iconic 33-room hotel was the first in Ibiza and is ideally located in the heart of the city next to the harbor and UNESCO site.

The Pig at Combe

One of our favorite openings this year, The Pig at Combe is a ‘rural chic’ retreat that opened in July. The 5th (and grandest) hotel in the The Pig group, this property is located in Devonshire, England and has 27 shabby-chic rooms on 3,500 lush across in a storybook thatched village. Think rolling meadows, forests and wild Arabian horses surrounding you along with a wood-fired pizza cafe, afternoon teas with strawberries and clotted cream and seriously delicious locally-sourced meals.

Andaz Mayakoba

Andaz Mayakoba will be opening by the end of the year and is opening a hard to resist Grand Opening Special!  This gorgeous  214-room oceanside resort has four restaurants, three pools and a spa.

Book before November 30th  for travel between January 9 and April 6th and receive your 3rd night free plus complimentary RT transfer from Cancun airport. PLUS, all your Virtuoso amenities apply such as $120 resort credit, daily breakfast and more!

Auberge Resort Chileno Bay, Cabo San Lucas

Auberge Resort’s newest property, Chileno Bay and its 2nd resort in Cabo San Lucas (Esperanza is the other) is opening in just a few weeks. This 60-room/32 villa resort is set to feature 3 restaurants and bars, a spa and kids club in addition to a 18-hole Tom Fazio golf course. Stay tuned!

Chable Resort and Spa, Mexico

The luxury Mexican forest retreat Chable Resort and Spa opened October 31st and instantly on the top of our list for a girls getaway! 38 luxury pool villas with outdoor showers, hammocks and large outdoor living rooms set across 750 acres of Mayan forest. The headliner for sure is the spa, built inside a ‘cenote’ featuring (in addition to treatment rooms, steam and sauna) a salt cabin and floatarium.

W Hotel, Punta De Mita

The W Hotel Punta De Mita opened the last week of August on Riviera Nayarit, the Pacific Coast of Mexico. This stunning 119-room beachfront resort is near the hip beach town of Sayulita. Look for Jean-George Vongerichten’s restaurant Spice Market, a 4,000 square foot spa and more!

Playa Largo, Key Largo

The first new resort in the Florida Keys in over 23 years, the Playa Largo Resort in Key Largo opened in the end of August to wonderful reviews. This eco and kid-friendly resort has 154 luxury rooms, suites and bungalows and one beach house on 14 beachfront acres. A fresh water pool, private cabanas, full service spa, fire pits, waterspouts and more.

Le Barthelemy Hotel and Spa, St. Barths

Open only since November 1, Le Barthelemy Hotel and Spa is the newest hotel on the tony island to make a splash. The beach-front boutique hotel is located in Grand Cul de Sac and features 46 rooms and suites -each different but most feature plunge pools and ocean views.

Four Seasons Anguilla

The Four Seasons Anguilla took over the Viceroy property on October 19th, adding all the Four Seasons bells and whistles its guests expect. More than 80% of the 188 villas and resort rooms overlook the spectacular beach. Virtuoso amenities include an upgrade on arrival, daily continental breakfast and a $100 spa credit.

Four Seasons Oahu at Ko Olina

On Oahu’s western coast far from the crowds but convenient to Honolulu and Waikiki Beach, the Four Seasons Oahu  (Four Seasons 5th Hawaiian property) opened in June, taking over the old JW Marriott property and doing an extensive head to toe renovation. We look forward to checking out this property for Winter Break and will be reporting back! The 371-room 17-story beachfront resort features five onsite restaurants, pools, lagoons and water and land sports on its property

Peninsula, Beijing

The new and improved Peninsula Beijing is fresh out of the $123MM renovation this September. All public spaces have been updated and the 525 original rooms have been reduced in half to 230 new suites. Check out the rooftop bar on the 15th floor – it is the only one in the area!
