The Luxe List 2011

The annual Luxe List showcases our picks of the best new hotels and resorts in the Asia-Pacific region. Learn more about it—and see lists from other years—here.

It’s been another big year for hotel openings in the Asia-Pacific region, but what makes one property more luxe than another? Based on reports from our network of contributors, we’ve assembled a list of 36 places that excel when it comes to style and ambience, be it a rambling Indian palace or a private villa in the hills of Chiang Mai. Though wildly different in terms of size, price, and look, they all have one thing in common: a singular sense of place and style that lets them stand out from the rest. Enjoy this year’s list, and happy travels!
