The new year is here, and from the number of recent and planned hotel openings, it’s clear that the hospitality industry is booming. A few trends became apparent as we gathered details on new hotels and resorts around the world.

The focus on wellness continues: Several properties offer not only high-quality fitness centers and spas, but also yoga, fitness, and nutrition experts, as well as group exercise classes and individual trainers. There's also an emphasis on the health of the planet, as properties are promoting sustainability and letting guests know of their efforts to conserve resources, reduce waste in their culinary outlets, and provide experiences that contribute to the overall improvement of the environment.

Vintage buildings are being restored, honoring their beauty and historical value, while modern comforts are incorporated. A trend towards adding community spaces, shared work areas, and events to encourage interaction among guests is also noticeable, in response to the needs and interests of younger and solo travelers. Curated art in rooms and public areas continues to be a feature of many properties as well, with pieces reflecting the locale or the brand’s desired style. Pets are permitted in an increasing number of hotels and resorts, too, with clever amenities and gifts to show they are truly welcome.

Interestingly, while most properties strive to include the fastest Wi-Fi and latest technology for added convenience, a few are promoting a stay as an opportunity for a “digital detox.” Glamping, or luxe camping, continues with several new properties offering fully outfitted tent-style rooms. Overall, luxurious details, personalized experiences, and creative amenities are making hotel stays more interesting and exciting than ever.
