Seek out the newest restaurants, hotels, and spas with our guide.



Ritz-Carlton, Montreal
Newly restored, The Ritz-Carlton, Montreal, now has 98 guest rooms and 31 suites. Originally opened in 1912, the hotel mixes old with new; marble fireplaces in many suites are original, but the guest rooms feature high-tech amenities, such as intuitively remembering a guest’s temperature preferences upon check-in, and motion sensors that activate lights to guide guests in a darkened room. The Royal Suite, at 436 sqm, is the largest hotel suite in Montreal.



Castello di Casole, Florence
Hotel Castello di Casole is a luxurious 5-star hotel in Tuscany, and the centrepiece of a historic 4,200-acre estate. This restored castle, parts of which date back to the 10th century, has been lovingly transformed into a boutique hotel with stunning views of the Tuscan countryside. With 41 private suites in a range of sizes and styles, each combines Old World Tuscan charm with modern boutique luxury, elegance, and sophistication.



ME by Meliá, London
Housed in what was once the BBC Marconi building, this hotel contains 157 rooms and 16 suites, one of which is a two-floor suite within a turret that leads onto the roof terrace. The rooms are full of comforts and personal indulgences, from the latest acoustic soundproofing to integrated digital MediaHubs, sumptuous bedding, and premium bath amenities. On the top floor sits the Radio roof bar, which has spectacular views of the London skyline and River Thames.



Kerry Hotel Spa, Shanghai
Shanghai welcomes the largest hotel health club, spa, and recreation facility in Shanghai – 8,000 sqm over three floors – to the Kerry Hotel Pudong. The Spa offers a proactive and multi-disciplinary approach to holistic wellbeing with physiotherapy, restorative massage, skincare, and body treatments inspired by Wudang Wushu (an ancient form of Chinese martial arts) and a range of all-natural skincare.



Retaj Royale Doha
Only a five-minute drive from the airport, Retaj Royale Doha offers luxurious facilities, and the first-class service of a 5-star hotel in the heart of the city. Each room features modern furnishings, large windows, plush beds, and deep soaking tubs. Some rooms also have a kitchenette and a dining area. Dine in one of three restaurants offering local and international cuisine, or enjoy the indoor pool, rejuvenating massages, and Jacuzzi in the spa.
