From Bhutan to Botswana and from Mexico to Montenegro, the hottest new luxury hotel openings 2020 span the globe—and the experiences we list are as different from one another as a stay at a can’t-afford-it igloo in the Arctic is different from sleeping on a vintage train parked above a river in the African savannah.

A theme emerging this year is that reopenings are as big as new openings, another is the rise of city hotels. Africa features prominently, and Japan is an important destination as well, thanks to the buzz surrounding the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

But all of the openings listed here are not-to-be-missed, absolutely the best new hotels to check into this year—which means the TravelPlusStyle’s Top 100 New Luxury Hotel Openings 2020 is the perfect place to start planning your travels. Time to dust off your passports!

*Note: the hotel opening dates are subject to changes and delays.
