New properties are always popping up, while existing ones work to stay fresh. Here are 3 new(ish) hotels that should be on your radar:
The Fontainebleau Las Vegas
Of the 3 new(ish) hotels that should be on your radar, The Fontainebleau Las Vegas is the only brand new property. This hotel will finally open for reservations this December after $3.7 billion and 20+ years in the making.
Like its sister property that sits on Miami Beach, The Fontainebleau Las Vegas maintains absolute luxury. The following are just a few of the impressive features that it boasts:
- 63 floors
- 150,000 square foot casino
- 55,000 square foot spa
- 3,600+ rooms and suites
- 36 on-site bars and restaurants
- 6-acre pool complex
- A night club
- A theater
Hotel Riu Caribe (Cancun)
Hotel Riu Caribe is not new, but it is newly renovated. The drastic aesthetic changes make it seem like a brand new property. The hotel has ditched bold colors for softer, earthier shades all throughout. The color change is most noticeable in the rooms. Gentler colors have replaced the commanding navy blue that donned the bed sheets and curtains. Lighter and softer hues throughout the property make for a calmer ambience. With more visually appealing furnishings, guests can be more at ease.
Wymara Resort + Villas (Turks and Caicos)
Sitting gracefully on Grace Bay Beach in Turks and Caicos is the ultra-luxe Wymara Resort + Villas. This property has been around for several years, as well, so it is not new either. However, it does have a brand new addition that surely elevates the resort and villas above many other luxury options.
That new addition is an ocean pool. Ocean pools are natural swimming pools that are replenished with fresh seawater. These are fairly common in Australia and some parts of Europe. The ocean pool in Wymara Resort + Villas, however, will be the first of its kind in the Caribbean. The ocean pool is freely accessible to villa guests; resort guests may purchase day passes ($75 per person) to enter.
