Travel + Leisure unveils its editors' picks of best new hotels in the world

Feb 21 2020, 6:14 pm

Travel can be just as much about the journey as the destination, but after a long tiring trek to get where you’re going, a comfortable place to rest your head can provide a level of luxury that is second to none.

However, in such a competitive market, merely providing comfortable accommodation may not be enough to remain relevant.

Popular travel publication, Travel + Leisure, recently published its It List 2020, providing its editors’ selections for the best new hotels in the world for this year.

“A truly standout property can offer new insight into a beloved place; bring fresh energy to a been-there, done-that neighborhood; even become a destination in its own right,” the publication explains.

“This year, our guide to the essential openings (and reopenings) of the past year took us to 32 countries in pursuit of the unforgettable.”

So, get ready and take notes, because these hotels are sure to provide some much-needed #travelinspo for your future 2020 adventures.
