8 of the most aesthetically pleasing hotels set to open in 2024

From internationally lauded hotel groups to boutique boltholes that pack plenty of punch, 2024’s upcoming hotel launches come with some extremely impressive design credentials.

Now that 2024 is beginning to reveal its nature, it’s a good time to look ahead at some of the landmark and notable hotel openings happening this year, and it’s already looking like they won’t disappoint. Here’s a preview of what we can expect in the months ahead.

Six Senses London

Six Senses London harnesses the Art Deco features of Whiteleys and is set to be one of London’s landmark hotel openings of 2024

 A luxury hotel group that needs no introduction, Six Senses is set to make its UK debut with the opening of its new 110-key London outpost in the former Whiteleys department store in Bayswater this year. The former Art Deco department store has been painstakingly redeveloped by Finchatton in collaboration with Foster + Partners, while EPR Architects is working with AvroKO to bring an understated elegance to the refurb, which includes the preservation of an original Grade II-listed facade, central courtyard and dome, together with a statement internal staircase modelled on Milan’s La Scala.

The design will subscribe to a minimalist code with parquet wooden flooring, contemporary furnishings and a Six Senses Spa recalling an old-fashioned Underground station while, to add a touch of local culture, contemporary art from British artists will be showcased throughout the hotel.

The Vineta, Palm Beach

Oetker Collection is opening The Vineta (above and top) in Palm Beach in 2024

From the hoteliers behind European icons including Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc, Le Bristol and Hotel La Palma, Oetker Collection is dropping stateside this year with its first US opening, The Vineta.

With its distinct, chic pale-pink façade, the landmark building is a quintessential example of Mediterranean Revival architecture for which Palm Beach is famed, and a top-to-bottom renovation led by Paris-based interior designer Tino Zervudachi will see it open a new chapter with four distinct environments.

The former Leopard Lounge – in its heyday, a popular Palm Beach night spot for celebrities and locals alike – will also undergo a full transformation, while the emblematic courtyard will also be transformed into the ultimate al fresco dining destination. And all within walking distance of the white sand beaches and crystal blue waters of Palm Beach.

Casa Monti, Rome

Hailing from family-owned Leitmotiv, the creators of La Fantaisie in Paris, Casa Monti will be a romantic tribute to the charming neighbourhood of Monti and its special village vibe, artisan shops, chic wine bars and new-age art galleries when it opens in Rome later this year.

Comprising 36 tasteful guestrooms, a restaurant, aperitivo bar, rooftop and spa overlooking the city, interior designer Laura Gonzalez has paid tribute to the up-and-coming artisans who call the Monti district home through frescoes commissioned by artists and painters in a Milanese style, while a carefully selected colour palette and bespoke prints evoke a carefree Italian spirit inspired by the local notion of sprezzatura – a feeling of relaxed ease and effortless elegance.

Odera, Tinos

Studio Bonarchi has designed Odera, a 77-room hotel on the unspoilt island of Tinos in Greece

The first luxury hotel to transform, yet respect, the unspoilt island of Tinos in Greece, Odera is set to open its doors this spring set among a secluded bay with a private beach.

A testament to authenticity, the 77-room hotel will feature interiors designed by Studio Bonarchi, with an ethos centred on celebrating Tinos’ traditions, local artisans, and producers. As such, every corner of the hotel will support the island’s craftsmanship, with the likes of traditional Tinian stonework and authentic pigeonholes showcasing its natural beauty and heritage, meticulously crafted marble furnishings and incredible dining menus that celebrate local suppliers.

Hotel du Couvent, Nice

This summer, hidden behind high walls in the heart of Nice’s Old Town, an early 17th-century convent is being woken from its decades-long slumber, having lain untouched by time since its last resident departed in 1985.

Whimsy in its design, the project – the first ultra-luxury property from Perseus founder Valéry Grégo, the name behind Les Roches Rouges and Le Pigalle in Paris – will see the convent and its 2.5 acres of terraced gardens restored and reborn complete with acres of terraced gardens overflowing with citrus and herbs, Roman-inspired thermal baths reminiscent of the nearby Cimiez ruins, menus harvested from the gardens and the convent’s own farm, and even a resident herbalist evoking the site’s ancient apothecary.

Janu Tokyo

From the design team behind Aman New York comes Janu Tokyo, opening in 2024

Jean-Michel Gathy is the man behind the interiors for the new Janu Tokyo, sister brand of the luxe Aman hotel group, so we already know to expect something special (we have him to thank for Aman Venice and Aman New York, after all). Under his supervision, this exciting new launch, which is set to provide a spirited social scene in contrast to Aman’s whisper-quiet seclusion, will comprise 122 guestrooms ranging from 592-square-foot Deluxe Rooms to the 3,000-square-foot Janu Suite – the majority with private balconies offering views of Tokyo Tower or surrounding gardens.

Currently slated to open in March, the sleek new property will also feature one of Tokyo’s largest gyms, private spa houses and eight dining venues.

Hotel Willa, New Mexico

Designed by Electric Bowery, Hotel Willa in Taos, New Mexico is opening in 2024 in a former motel

It’s been a long time coming, but the 51-key Hotel Willa, having been acquired by boutique hotelier Casetta Group, is finally set to take the hotel scene in the New Mexico high desert up a notch when it opens later this year in Taos.

Transforming a former 1940s motel into a pueblo-inspired retreat complete with curving stucco walls and warm wood ceilings, the interiors, by Los Angeles design studio Electric Bowery, will be adorned with textured terra-cotta-coloured plaster walls, rich earth-tone fabrics and what they describe as a painterly palette. The setting in itself is pretty spectacular too – a historic mountain town that is as much a summer hotspot as a winter sports destination defined by mighty Precambrian Mountain belts, shallow tropical seas and vast sand-duned deserts.

The Hoxton, Edinburgh 

The newest addition to the Hoxton group is opening in Edinburgh in 2024, designed by Ennismore’s in-house AIME Studios

Not content with its newest openings in London, Berlin, Brussels and Amsterdam, the Hoxton group is bringing its bougie dwellings to the Scottish capital this year with the opening of its Edinburgh outpost. Aiming for a summer launch, 211 bedrooms will come spread across 11 joined-together Georgian townhouses on either side of the street, with Ennismore’s in-house design studio, AIME Studios in charge of interiors. As such, guests can expect a scheme inspired by the townhouses themselves which includes block colours, subtle textures and locally sourced materials, with limewash paint experts Bauwerk creating two new shades exclusively for the space in tribute to the characteristic stone buildings in the area. Elsewhere, a gallery showcasing local artists’ work plus a stylish restaurant and bar will seal the deal.
