Fashion and travel have many things in common, but my favorite is the shared obsession with newness. While I’ll always have a place in my heart for my 10-year-old tote bag or the hotel I’ve visited countless times, what really excites me is trying new things. To that end, I decided to curate my favorite hotel openings of 2023, all of which are bound to spark instant wanderlust.
At the top of my list is Christian Louboutin’s new hotel in Melides, Portugal, which is just as stylish as you’d expect from the iconic shoe designer. Other destinations include a freshly renovated Cannes property, a beloved luxury hotel chain’s new France outpost, a slice of paradise in Chiang Mai, and more.
