By Corina Tan

Here are some exciting Hotel openings in 2022!

Making travel plans can be a daunting prospect in light of all the uncertainties and ever-changing health and immigration regulations around the world.  Nevertheless, travel is still possible to many places, and fully vaccinated passports make it that much easier.  We look at several new and exciting hotels you may want to bookmark for your travel bucket list in the coming months.


Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som, Qatar

Chiva-Som is a name synonymous with the best wellness experience money can buy and its original retreat in Thailand remains as popular as ever even after 27 years.  This latest outpost in the Middle East comprises of two retreats in one – an adult-only & a family-focused resort scattered around mirage-like water in the middle of the dessert.  The spa-obsessed crowd will be pleased to hear of its opening in February 2022.

Originally closed in 2015, this 18th-century Palladian styled estate had once hosted Jackie Kennedy, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Diana.  Now taken over by Relais & Chateaux, this restored estate finally reopens in March 2022 with a slick spa that has been added to an already impressive three-acre garden, and centuries-old historical architecture to admire.

A surfing honeypot, Sumba will now be home to an eco-focused retreat that uses sustainable materials to craft its suites and villas.  The retreat which opens in the Summer of 2022 will include a beach club, an open-air cinema, and spa. The restaurant will serve food sourced from its on-site farm, which also houses a school of agriculture, a kids’ club and an activity centre for guests.  50 per cent of its energy will come from its solar panel park and 80 per cent of its staff will be hired locally, making this retreat true to its green-fingered ethos.

Bulgari Rome, Italy


The sparkling Italian jewellery brand will be opening its next outpost in Rome this Autumn 2022, set in a 1930s modernist building around the corner from the Spanish Steps.  Bulgari Roma will house an appointment-only reading room dedicated to the history of the jewellery, a spa, and a top-floor bar with coveted views.  The building also faces two of Rome’s most iconic landmarks: the Ara Pacis and the Mausoleum of Augustus, the first Roman Imperator.


Six Senses Crans-Montana, Switzerland


With the ski season of 2020 cut short, and the 2021 season cancelled altogether, all eyes are set on Winter 2022 being the ski season of the new decade.  This mountaintop spot in the Swiss Alps will have all the hallmarks of the glossy Six Senses brand with a cavernous spa, a dedicated space for kids and teens and a sun terrace overlooking the pistes.
