Best 10 New Luxury Hotels of a Last Decade


With 12 highly experienced and passionate researchers across the world, no one is better placed than LTI to determine the best ten new luxury hotels of the past decade.

This has been an extraordinary ten years for the global luxury hotel sector, with constant development and huge ‘money is no object’ investment taking place, bringing the luxury traveller a vast choice of superb new properties and admittedly, some disastrous ones.

It’s been a challenging project for the team at LTI – Luxury Travel Intelligence, but after thorough consideration, we have determined ‘the perfect ten’. We could not possibly rank them against each other as they are all truly outstanding, so here they are in alphabetical order.

Aman Tokyo

Cheval Blanc Maldives

Corinthia London

Kokomo Private Island Fiji

La Reserve Paris

Six Senses Zil Pasyon Seychelles

Soneva Jani Maldives

Song Saa Cambodia

The Silo Cape Town

Velaa Private Island Maldives

Michael Crompton, Founder of LTI, comments: ‘The team at LTI is totally submerged in every aspect of luxury travel every day, yet even we are continually surprised and occasionally speechless at the level of excellence we find at particular properties. Of course this makes an exercise such as this even more difficult to call, but having visited all of these exceptional properties, some several times, we are confident that of all the great new hotels and resorts we have seen over the past ten years, this is without doubt, the perfect ten’
