From a resort without walls in the Balinese highlands to a walled sanctuary that was once home to French royalty, 2022 is bringing travel back in a big way with some epic hotel openings

ULTIMA CANNES LE GRAND JARDIN

Sainte-Marguerite, France The stuff of Bond villain dreams, this exclusive walled sanctuary is the sole private property on the island of Saint-Marguerite, accessible only by a 10-minute boat ride from Cannes, or by helicopter or private jet. Arrivals by private jet with VistaJet will be carbon offset in partnership with a tree-planting programme.

Previously home to royals such as Louis XIV and protected by an impressive fort built by Cardinal Richelieu, Ultima Cannes Le Grand Jardin is a sprawling property featuring 12 luxurious guest rooms across five separate buildings, a naturally treated outdoor pool, an open-air cinema and a spa.

Surrounded by a 1.4-hectare botanical garden, the hotel grounds come alive with the scent of citrus trees, wild flora and the Mediterranean Sea.
