The new boutique hotels to know about this year

Hotel Chateau D'Eau, Paris, France

Opening February 2024

Our favourite playful French hotel brand, Touriste, is back with a new Parisian stay near Gare du Nord. In February 2024, Hotel Chateau d'Eau opens, a seven-storey, 36-key property that will share the same kittenish character as the brand's sister properties, Hôtel Beauregard and Hôtel de la Boétie. We've seen few renderings and heard even fewer rumours of what to expect, design-wise, but with Necchi Architecture behind the project (the design duo who whipped up the modish elegance of the city's striking Pied à Terre Residences), we'd put money on a strictly 70s Parisian moodboard - think, high-shine wooden panelling, soft leather couches and 400 shades of brown, from bronze and buff to tawny, chocolate and carob.

Grand Hôtel Belvédère, Switzerland
Grand Hôtel Belvédère

Grand Hôtel Belvédère, Wengen, Switzerland

Opening June 2024

Sequestered between steep slopes near the village of Wengen, Beaumier's first Swiss property, the Grand Hôtel Belvédère, will offer travellers a 21st-century refresh of a classic mountain stay. This is set to be no alpine hut, though: surrounded by its own private forest (yes, really), the airy, elegant Belvédère's 90 rooms and suites take the grande dame glamour of classic mountain style and give it a modern twist. There will be wood panelling aplenty, sure, and nods to the era when this alpine area became the birthplace of recreational skiing, but the historic Berner Oberland artisan heritage utilised in the hotel's design has been brought firmly into the modern day, with additions of poured concrete fireplaces, Kim-K-worthy curved, moss-green sofas, and striking angular architecture for a spa that will feature saunas, a hammam and two pools. Skiing is, of course, high on the agenda, but so, too, are summer activities such as e-biking, climbing, yoga and meditation. Oh, and did we mention the resident DJs? This is alpine adventure taken up a notch.

Villa Dahlia, Stockholm, Sweden

Opening autumn 2024

Stockholm's hot new opening is a sister stay to the city's elegant Villa Dagmar and Hotel Diplomat duo. The 103-room Villa Dahlia is taking up residence in the city centre. We've not heard much on what to expect but one promise made is a focus on sustainability. Plans also include a restaurant, two bars, and a spa centre with saunas, plunge pools and gym. If it's anything like the two other Stockholm properties, expect out-and-out elegance throughout.

Address, Glasgow
Address, Glasgow

The Address, Glasgow, UK

Opening early 2024

You heard it here first: Glasgow is a destination to watch in the next few years. The Scottish city is gambling on its creative energy and still-gritty edge to steal some of Edinburgh's limelight, with new openings (and industry acclaim) popping up from Finnieston to Blythswood Square. Restaurants including Celentano's, The Gannet, Ox and Finch and Glaschu are all making gastronomic waves. Until now, though, hotels have been limited. In 2024, that's changing. The Address is the first UK property from the family-owned Irish hotel group Address Collective, and it's invested a mind-boggling £9 million into a six-storey property in the city. Opening early 2024, the listed building will house 95 rooms, an all-day dining restaurant and bar, North, plus a fitness suite with plunge pool and Himalayan salt rock sauna.

The Store, Oxford, UK

Opening 2024

Oxford's much-loved, old-school department store Boswells will start a second life in 2024. Open since 1738, trading has ceased in the family shop, and it's being transformed into a 101-room hotel (thank God - this city was sorely in need of some sexy new stays). Located on the elegant curve of Broad Street, a bicycle's length from the academic city's beautiful museums, colleges and old pubs, The Store will play on the idea of a department store being a place of discovery - but instead of haberdasheries and household essentials, a restaurant, café, rooftop bar, spa and other ever-evolving spaces await guests. Rooms look plush, with enticing snapshots promising velvet headboards and faux-fur rugs, while the spa on the lower ground floor is set to see the hotel pair up with skincare brand Oskia to offer space-age treatments and brainpower-boosting enhancing experiences.

Casa Loma, California, USA

Casa Loma, Laguna Beach, California, US

Opening summer 2024

Want to go to the seaside? Make it at this Southern Californian coastal town, with a stay at the 70-room Casa Loma, set to open its doors in summer 2024. The ocean-gazing property - formerly known as The Inn at Laguna Beach - is being completely renovated by the team behind some of the US's coolest stays (including The Scott and Hotel Carmel) into a bohemian beach retreat, complete with nautical furnishings, soft, cosy linens and an ocean-inspired palette. Perched on a cliffside, and less than five minutes' walk from downtown's Laguna Beach, it's officially opening in summer 2024, but the old hotel will be functioning throughout renovations.

Casa Lucia, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Casa Lucia, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Casa Lucia, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Opening January 2024

Housed in Buenos Aires' iconic celestial eyre, the Edificio Mihanovic building, this 142-room hotel from the Único brand is set to be the city's hottest new base in the new year. The cloud-crowned edifice - once Latin America's tallest - has been refurbished by a local design team, adding sleek, warm interiors accented by striking contemporary art from Argentine artists. All rooms promise sweeping city views (to be expected when you're this high), with balconies and outdoor showers on the cards for those lucky enough to nab a suite. A sky-high spa will include a state-of-the-art gym and 15m mirrored pool. Keep your eyes on the new restaurant opening: Cantina's menu will draw from the country's rich larder, while the playful drinks on offer at the hotel's Club Bacan distil the best of the party city into liquid lubrication, courtesy of mixologist Martín Suaya.

The Standard, Singapore

Opening 2024

Originally tipped to open in 2023, the hotshot hotel brand's Singaporean debut will now host a raucous opening bash in the latter half of 2024, joining further global openings in Melbourne, Lisbon, Brussels and Dublin. Located in a glitzy glass slab a short walk from the city's Botanic Gardens (one of numerous green spaces spread across the Garden City), we're expecting The Standard Singapore to bring all the eclectic signatures of this bold, brash brand to the Asian location: kaleidoscopic interiors, a hedonistic nightlife offering, a vibey cultural programme and a typically loud and proud restaurant offering. An infinity pool is also rumoured to be involved.

GuestHouse Brighton
GuestHouse, Brighton

No.124 by GuestHouse, Brighton, UK

The Guest brothers are back, this time with a Regency-style townhouse transformation in Brighton. With views out across the English Channel, the 32-room hotel promises all the home comforts of the boutique brand's previous GuestHouse iterations in Margate, York and Bath, including a Pearly Cow restaurant, outdoor terrace bar and wellness concept, but with the added bonus of having the city's famous shingle beach a speedy stroll away. Weekend break in Brighton, anyone?

The Bonobo by Raes, Byron Bay, Australia

Opening mid-2024

Listen up lovers of Brisbane's The Calile: the architecture firm behind the pretty-in-pink city stay has been beavering away on a beachside Byron Bay property, bringing that airy, pastel-kissed soft brutalism to the golden sands. This luxury apartment-hotel will have 41 two-, three- and four-bed apartments on offer, plus a rooftop pool. Downstairs, a central courtyard will house a host of restaurants, bars and shops.

Hotel Willa, Taos, New Mexico, US

Opening 2024

Powder hounds assemble: the US's most underrated ski destination, Taos, is having a mini renaissance in 2024, and spearheading the rebirth is this boutique stay. The 51-key Hotel Willa is taking the hotel scene in the New Mexico high desert up a notch, transforming a former 1940s motel into a pueblo-inspired retreat, complete with curving stucco walls and warm wood ceilings. The town's culinary wizard, Zak Pelaccio, has been hired to lead the in-house restaurant, while roasters OPC are co-opting the lobby bar, promising fresh coffee daily. The new opening makes the case that this historic mountain town is as much a summer hotspot as a winter sports destination. Scrap the skis and you'll be browsing farmers' markets, feasting on seasonal dining and visiting start-up distilleries around town. Throw in natural hot springs within easy reach of the slopes of the Ski Valley in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and we're putting this city high on our to-visit list next year.

XELA, Tulum, Mexico

Soft-launched this month, Tulum's latest design-led offering is an intimate beach stay. The 12-suite, adults-only XELA - another opening from the locally-rooted, Mexican-owned Namron Hospitality group - delivers the boutique brand's signature barefoot luxury style, with a private white-sand beach, laid-back modern Mexican restaurant, rooftop bar overlooking the Caribbean Sea, and access to a spa in sister property La Valise Tulum, where you can enjoy treatments and ceremonies rooted in Mayan culture. Rooms are cocooned in a former private home and blend pared-back elegance with the natural beauty of the region - expect earthy hues, plenty of natural fabrics and clean-line furnishings made by a local carpenter. The bathrooms are a highlight, offering vast, trough-like baths awaiting hours-long soaks.

Hoxton, Edinburgh

The Hoxton Edinburgh, Scotland, UK

Opening early 2024

The Hoxton is expanding again - after openings in London, Berlin, Brussels and Amsterdam, the bougie boutique chain is crash landing in the Scottish capital, bringing its "open-house" style to the Haymarket area. The majestic 211-room Hoxton Edinburgh will be spread across 11 joined Georgian townhouses, and will include - for the first time - three self-contained "Houses" - three-bedroom apartments on offer for longer stays. We're expecting a typically good restaurant and bar in tow, but there's also going to be a gallery showcasing local artists' work. Other new Hox outposts for 2024 include Dublin and Vienna.

Sea Sea, New South Wales, Australia

Opening summer 2024

A self-styled 70s-inspired "surf club" hotel, this NSW opening from a husband-and-wife team (who are also behind The Slow in Bali) is bringing the edge to the sleepy surf town of Crescent Head. With 24 rooms set to be dressed in cowhide, leather and ample woodwork, an in-house clothing line in the works, art exhibitions set to happen year-round, an ongoing music programme, a bar in collaboration with effortlessly cool Sydney liquor store P&V, and hotshot chef Daniel Medcalf on hand to helm the food offering, we're expecting big things (and we're not just talking about the waves).
