The hospitality industry will be broadening horizons with these uber-luxurious resorts opening doors to welcome guests within the next couple of years. So if you’re planning a spectacular honeymoon or a private, well-deserved getaway, check out the possibilities:
Keemala Resort, in Phuket, Thailand is tucked into a rainforest along the Andaman Sea. Opening before the years-end, it has everything you can dream of — thatched huts, terraced herb gardens, treehouse pools, a yoga pavilion, meditation rooms and a holistic spa.
The Royal Atlantis Dubai will remind you of a Swiss cheese made out of Lego only, more fun. With its 800 guest rooms and 250 luxury apartments nestled in 46 floors of stacked-up glass boxes. The features include a Givenchy spa, a Gordon Ramsay restaurant, and an interactive marine park. You can enjoy a swim in the sky pool 90 meters above the man-made Palm Islands off Dubai’s coast.
Norway’s Lofoten Opera Hotel, designed by Snohetta, the country’s leading architectural firm, will be a mix of hotel and luxury apartments. With access to hiking trails and sea basins nearby, the Opera has an amazing ampi-theater and a spa guaranteed to have guests coming back for more!
Scheduled to open in early 2017, the Poseidon Underwater Resort in Fiji is designed to take your breath away. It’s a hotel situated entirely underwater, with 24 suites, a spa, library, bar, restaurant, event-space. As you snuggle in a corner to read the latest bestseller, or enjoy your cocktails, you will be looking out over a coral-filled lagoon teeming with brightly-colored fish.
Carved into an abandoned quarry, the Shimao Wonderland Intercontinental in Shanghai, China, is perhaps only for those who have no fear of heights. Its 328 rooms are seemingly plunging down a steep cliff face towards a 90-meter deep lagoon. The lowest level, featuring restaurants and public areas, will be underwater.
