Top 15 New Luxury Hotel Openings 2019

Top New Luxury Hotel Openings 2019

A Number of New Luxury Hotels Opened in 2019 or Will Open Later in 2019. Out of all of them, I've highlighted the ones below that I consider most significant, taking into account the brand's reputation for high quality in the luxury space, demand for the destination, and the hotel location and amenities.

1. Singita Kwitonda, Rwanda (Opened August 1, 2019)

Highlights: Fabulous Singita service and accommodation with just 8 suites and 1 4-BR villa, make this the top recommended option for gorilla trekking. As always, all meals and beverages (including wines, but excluding French champagne) and laundry service are included in the rates. Note that gorilla trekking permits are at additional cost, currently $1500 per person per trek, and participants must be at least age 15.

Thinking of combining Singita Kwitonda with a Serengeti Safari? See our Singita Sasakwa Lodge and Singita Sabora Tented Camp reviews.

TravelSort Client Benefits: $100 credit towards in-room wellness treatments once during stay, for double occupancy stays of 2 or more nights. Clients on extended trips may also qualify for our paid Award Booking Service.

Plus, enjoy up to $400 nightly resort credit on stays of 3 or more nights. See Top 10 Four Seasons Additional Resort Credit Offers, 2019.

3. Zadun, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Los Cabos (Opens October 25, 2019)

This resort's opening kept getting pushed back, but perhaps the Four Seasons Los Cabos at Costa Palmas, which will open on October 1, 2019, had the effect of spurring Zadun's October 25, 2019 opening.

9. Four Seasons Montreal (Opened June 1, 2019)

Highlights: Four Seasons is a Canada-based international luxury hotel brand, so it's surprising that this is its first hotel in Montreal, Canada's 2nd largest city after Toronto. The new hotel is conveniently located on Rue de la Montaigne, steps from the city's Golden Mile. For couples, a Premier or Premier Carre Dore is the perfect base, with new and luxurious finishes. For families, a 1BR Suite is ideal, as some of these have a sofa bed for a child or third guest; some also have a dining table for 4 guests. After a busy day of meetings or seeing the sights, relax in the skylit indoor swimming pool, sauna or steam room, or unwind with a spa treatment. Marcus Restaurant and Terrace, by Chef Marcus Samuelsson, is already becoming a popular spot for locals as well as guests for lunches and dinners.

Even entry-level rooms are quite spacious, at 500 square feet, with walk-in closets and bathrooms that have separate soaking tubs and rain showers. Some rooms and suites boast their own private balcony or sun deck. Amenities include several restaurants and a health club with a spa and an 82 feet (25 meters) long infinity pool.

11. J.K. Place Paris Rive Gauche (Opens November 1, 2019)

Highlights: The first J.K. Place outside of Italy, J.K. Place Paris is located at 82 Rue de Lille on the Left Bank, where so many clients want to stay, but where there's a dearth of luxury hotel offerings. The location is in a former embassy building, with colorful interiors designed by Michele Bönan, and it's intimate in scale, with just 29 rooms and suites, yet there's still a small Sisley Spa and pool. Casa Tua, the Italian restaurant, will be the third, after locations Miami and Aspen.

Virtuoso Benefits (Expected; J.K. Place Paris not yet a Virtuoso member)

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Full breakfast daily for up to two guests per bedroom

12. Belmond Cadogan London (Opened February 2019)

Highlights: The new Belmond Cadogan Hotel is situated in Chelsea at 75 Sloane Street, a short walk from Harrods and Knightsbridge shopping, as well as walking distance to Hyde Park, the Natural History Museum and Buckingham Palace. With only 54 rooms and suites, it's an intimate boutique hotel, and enjoys exclusive access to Cadogan Place Gardens, private gardens that are reserved for residents of the mansions and apartments that encircle the gardens. Tennis players may enlist the Concierge to reserve one of the tennis courts at Cadogan Gardens.

13. Four Seasons Philadelphia (Opened August 12, 2019)

14. Four Seasons Boston One Dalton Street (Opened May 28, 2019)

Highlights: The new Four Seasons Boston One Dalton Street is Boston's newest luxury hotel, with floor to ceiling windows providing great natural light, some with Back Bay Views. Suites feature stand alone soaking tubs; I recommend the Back Back Corner Suite, which has especially stunning views, including from the bathroom. Enjoy swimming in the pool, also bathed in natural light, a spa treatment, or dine at Zuma Restaurant.

15. Hotel de la Ville by Rocco Forte, Rome (Opened May 23, 2019)

Highlights: Superb central location near the Spanish Steps, some rooms and suites have a panoramic view over Rome. As many of the rooms are small, I recommend reserving a Deluxe Panoramic View Room or higher category.
