"In compiling our list of the best new hotels, we uncovered the latest trends and hot spots," says editor Christine Gray. "New hotel growth in the Americas this year was slow, while Asia/Pacific destinations are booming. Also, world-renowned architects, designers, chefs and spas are increasingly involved in new luxury hotel projects."
As the luxury traveler becomes more discerning they want to experience new and unexplored destinations. Luxury hotels are capitalizing on this trend with significant development in adventurous destinations that include Chiang Mai in Thailand, Langkawi in Malaysia, Bhutan, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, China and Vietnam among others.
The Pacific's hot spots include Byron Bay on the East Coast of Australia and Yallingup in Western Australia's wine region, Queenstown in New Zealand and islands such as Fiji, Palau and Samoa. Other exotic destinations seeing considerable growth are Dubai, Oman, Morocco and South Africa.
2005/2006 brings exciting new developments in Europe with many wonderful historic buildings being transformed into the newest luxury hotels, as well as cutting-edge, new hotels being added. Europe's hot spots include Italy, especially Milan and the Amalfi/Capri area, Spain including the Balearic Islands, France including Corsica, Northern Greece, Turkey, Moscow and other Eastern European destinations such as Croatia, Estonia, Hungary and Slovenia.
