Hospitality heats up with new upscale properties for 2022.
MARK CHESNUT

The pandemic may have put a temporary damper on most people’s travel plans, but it hasn’t stopped the hospitality industry from moving forward with an extensive pipeline of new hotels scheduled to open next year. From sophisticated urban high-rises to nature-oriented retreats, the hotels debuting in 2022 prove there are many ways to define upscale travel. Here are some of the hottest new openings.

Florida is gearing up to welcome at least two new and noteworthy luxury hotels in 2022. The 158-room Mandarin Oriental, Boca Raton will feature two rooftop pools; a spa; fitness center; and multiple upscale restaurants and bars, including Mandarin Oriental’s signature MO Bar + Lounge, situated on the rooftop with an outdoor terrace. The adjacent Via Mizner Golf & City Club will provide additional leisure activity options for guests.

Nearby, West Palm Beach will become home of Banyan Cay Resort & Golf, Florida’s first Destination by Hyatt hotel and the first full-service Hyatt-branded property in Palm Beach County. Set on 250 acres, the property offers golf practice facilities as well as access to a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course. Accommodation options include 150 guestrooms and 22 three-bedroom villas.

NEW LUXURY HOTELS ARE IN THE WORKS AROUND THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE. IN THE CARIBBEAN, NEW OPENINGS FOR 2022 INCLUDE ROCK HOUSE TURKS AND CAICOS, A RESORT SET ON 14 OCEANFRONT ACRES ON THE NORTH COAST OF PROVIDENCIALES.

In New York City new properties in the works include the 446-room Hard Rock Hotel New York, which will have a rooftop lounge and two entertainment venues, and Six Senses New York, the first North American property for this wellness-oriented IHG brand. The 136-room property, set inside The XI, a complex of two towers designed by architect Bjarke Ingels, will have two restaurants and one of the chain’s trademark spas.

In Texas, InterContinental Hotels & Resorts marks its return to Dallas at Cityplace Tower with a rooftop infinity pool and lounge and more than 21,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Travelers looking for an upscale way to enjoy nature, meanwhile, might consider Southall Farms in Franklin, Tennessee, a 325-acre farm being reborn as a luxurious country getaway complete with guestrooms, cottages, a spa and activities themed around farm, wellness, adventure and culinary programs led by James Beard Award multi-nominee Chef Tyler Brown.

New luxury hotels are in the works around the Western Hemisphere. In the Caribbean, new openings for 2022 include Rock House Turks and Caicos, a resort set on 14 oceanfront acres on the north coast of Providenciales, and Cabot Saint Lucia, the second golf-oriented hotel by the team that created Cabot Cape Breton, a golf resort in Nova Scotia, Canada.
