1. Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square

Set to make its debut this month, Four Seasons Hotel London at Ten Trinity Square offers easy access to the Tower of London, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and other iconic landmarks that grace the capital. But the hotel is so much more than its privileged location: occupying a beautiful heritage structure that initially opened as the headquarters of the Port of London Authority, the property is steeped in nearly a century’s worth of history. Intricate wall carvings, exquisite furnishings, and elaborate engravings all bear traces of the building’s storied past, inviting guests to completely immerse themselves in their surroundings—that is, when they’re not busy indulging in a pampering session at the hotel’s 18,000-square-foot Roman-inspired spa.

2. Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills

This June will see the launch of Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills, an opulent 170-room property conceptualized by world-renowned designer Pierre-Yves Rochon. Nestled at the corner of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards, the hotel will house lavishly-appointed guest quarters, a 5,000-square-foot spa center, a stylish rooftop pool and deck, and the first West Coast outpost by three-Michelin-starred chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

3. Kokomo Island Fiji

A nature lover’s paradise, Kokomo Island Fiji beckons amid pristine reefs, crystal clear waters, luxuriant greenery, and stretches of white sand. The private island resort—which is scheduled to open in March—is spread across 55 hectares, fringed by one of the best dive sites on the planet: the Great Astrolabe Reef. Accommodations range from beachside villas to exclusive luxury hilltop residences, all of which will boast a private pool, traditional Fijian motifs, and memorable views.

4. The Ritz-Carlton, Jiuzhaigou

Dotted with snow-capped mountains and lush grassplots in the World Heritage-listed and folklore-rich Jiuzhaigou Valley, the resort will mark the brand’s first all-villa property. Each of the 87 stunning accommodations will be a testament to the enduring legacy and remarkable vision of decorated designer Jaya Ibrahim, replete with ornate details and panoramic views that take in the nature reserve’s lakes, waterfalls, and forests.
